American Pancakes

When I was a child we lived in the US and ever since I have just loved American Pancakes with Maple Syrup!! This is my moms recipe and all of us kids (and grownups) can’t get enough. And the best thing is, that they are ridiculously easy to prepare. Ideal for a brunch or just as a treat for oneself.

Cinnamon Tart

The usually gloomy November month has started, but has served us with a few nice sunny autumn days so far. But it gets dark earlier now and how better can you enjoy that with cake and a cup of hot cocoa, coffee or tea?! And this slightly spicy tart is ideal to also warm you from inside!

Cinnamon Quark with Plums

One of my favorite recipes during the autumn season is this easy Quark & Plum dessert. I love the sweetness of the plums and the beautiful color in combination with the slightly cinnamon-spiced Quark. Not only can you end a dinner with this as a dessert, no, you can also eat as a snack in between or for breakfast.

Gooseberry Crumble

Yay – it’s gooseberry time! And what better can you have than if they grow in your backyard? And that’s why I made a great gooseberry cumble. Unfortunately we didn’t have too many left (we need to save them from the birds), but here is the recipe for a proper crumble for a few people.

Currant Muffins

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!

Lemon & Mascarpone Cake

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!

Fresh Pears Baked in Cream

One of my all time favorites and I just dug up this recipe from Martha Stewart again this winter. It’s honestly to die for!! The only downside is, that it does take some time in the oven, however if you are prepared and you have finished the main course, your guests are surely happy to wait a bit for the dessert. This is really a must-try!!

Bread & Butter Pudding


The perfect comfort food and ideal to get rid of any leftover bread. We had a Swiss cheese fondue evening lately and had a lot of bite sizes bread bits left. So on the Sunday evening it was Bread & Butter Pudding time! Fairly easy to prepare and you have most ingredients at home, I would guess.
