German Cheesecake – Käsekuchen

My husband had his birthday lately and he asked me to prepare a German Cheesecake – Käsekuchen! It is completely different to the typical American Cheesecake. Instead of using a cream cheese the main ingredient is ‘Quark’ (curd). It’s creamy and delicious! My brother found this recipe years ago and the whole family adores the cake!

Pistachio Tart with White Chocolate Cream

Sometimes I stumble over a recipe and think – this sounds great. Usually it involves things like avocado or lemons. But specific nuts do the trick too. In this case – pistachios! I love the green color and the special taste. And adoring white chocolate too, it was a must-try for me. And believe me, I didn’t regret it!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since a few weeks I have been craving to make these and now I have finally gotten round to prepare them. Actually easy to make, but just didn’t find the time! I just adore them, with their gooiness and the chocolate, especially when still slightly warm…

Mother’s Day Chocolate Cake Mix

A year ago I received this lovely cake mix from my son. He prepared it in day care and I was very touched!! So I thought I’d share this recipe and the lovely idea!

See what you need to prepare:

Ingredients

1 jar (750ml or 1 liter)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

65g white flour

30g cocoa

65g plain flour

100g Brown shgar

110g White ahfar

120g chocolate chips

Plus (later, when preparing):

110g melted butter

3 beaten eggs

Directions

Stack all of the dry ingredients of the jar, close the lid and place a nice piece of cloth and bow around the lid.

When preparing the cake:

Combine all ingredients of the jar with melted (slightly cooled off) butter and eggs. Mix well and pour into a buttered baking tin.

Bake at 180°C (air circulation) for approx. 25 minutes. Check after 20 minutes with a wooden skewer to see if the cake is ready – if still doughy, leave in for another bit, if the skewer is dry, its ready.

Enjoy and happy Mother’s Day!!

Chocolate Cake – only with Egg Whites

Always when I have cooked something like a vanilla sauce or baked and only needed the egg yolks, I look for alternatives to use the left over egg whites. And I hate just wasting them for no reason. Plus I sometimes want to prepare something different than the classic Pavlova, that usually calls for if you have left over egg whites. So here is the perfect alternative – and lets be honest, chocolate cake is always a good idea!
