Spekulatius Cake (Spiced Cookie Cake) with Maple Syrup Glaze

And speaking about cookies – this cake is made of spiced cookies called “Spekulatius” that are very commen during the Christmas season.

Easy Fig Tart

Super easy and really quick to make! And figs are always so beautiful to combine with their red-dotty pulp! The first time I prepared this tart, I used too little sugar, so I added a second tablespoon and that should give it a perfect sweetness!

Currants are such a delicious and beautiful looking berry. These muffins are simple to make and just look super nice with the little red dots. We have some growing in the garden, but they weren’t quite ripe just yet, so I used bought ones! But yummy scrummy in any case!

It’s cake time! But you want a fresh alternative, with the temperatures rising and slowly but steadily turning into Spring / Summer time! This is an ideal cake that is moist and stays fresh for a few days. I really like it a lot!
