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…

Strawberry & Mascarpone Tart

The strawberry season is here and I love it! Every year I can’t wait until it starts and this delicious tart is an ideal addition for this special berry-season. Simple to make, you just need a little time to prepare the tart bottom and let it cool after having been in the oven.

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!

Pita Bread with Tuna Salad

Sometimes in summer, we like to have little picknicks or have a meal outside, that you can easily bring along. This was always a snack our mother would make for us and we all loved it. And we really like the pita bread that was just the little bit different than normal bread.

Bircher Muesli

Don’t know how it is with you guys, but if I would let my son choose any meal he’d like, first thing would be pasta (just with butter and Parmesan cheese), second definitely would be home made Bircher muesli. He just adores it, must-have being lots and lots of raisins! Perfect as a healthy start to the day as breakfast, but also ideal as a snack in the afternoon (or even dinner, if your kid convinces you!).

See how the simple recipe goes here:
