Raspberry Miso Chocolate Brownies

Raspberry Miso Chocolate Brownies

A while ago, a friend of mine made some scrumptious raspberry chocolate brownies, ever since I haven't stopped craving this combination. Quite some time ago I was testing out a recipe for a similar brownie, which starred shiro miso. As you might know by now, I am really into pairing unusual ingredients and trying out funny combinations. So today, I wanna share my love for my newest dream couple: Shiro miso and dark chocolate.

Elderflower-infused Semolina Cake

Elderflower-infused Semolina Cake

Elderflowers are a great plant to work with in the kitchen. You can use them in so many, countless ways, not just as syrup. At the moment I drink a lot of elderflower tea brewed from freshly picked blossoms, it helps when you have a cold, but it's even shown positive effects on people who suffer from hay-fever. For the cake we will use it in two, possibly three different ways.

Cacao Sourdough Bread with Hazelnuts and Sour Cherries

Cacao Sourdough Bread with Hazelnuts and Sour Cherries

Writing this recipe has been long overdue. I have made this bread every week now for the last 3 weeks and I still can't get enough of it. In the beginning I was still figuring out the best composition of the sourdough, the spelt flour, the nuts and dried fruit. And even though this bread contains a lot of ingredients that will make you think 'Sweet' - it's more of a savoury kind of snack, or actually it's somewhere in the middle, which makes it perfect as an afternoon snack.

Banana Chocolate Swirl Bread

Banana Chocolate Swirl Bread

The idea to make a banana chocolate swirl bread recently occured to me while I was browsing through Pinterest. I saw a picture of a chocolate banana bread with peanut butter swirl (made by the inspiring german blogger Jeanny from Zucker, Zimt & Liebe). I immediately wanted to try that, however, it was Sunday and I didn't have any peanut butter in the house. So, I made this version with what I had at disposal. So easy, and it's wipped up in a couple of minutes.

Chocolate Avocado Cake with Coconut Wipped Cream (Vegan)

Chocolate Avocado Cake with Coconut Wipped Cream (Vegan)

A couple of months back I shared my beetroot and chocolate cake recipe with you. Adding avocado is another way of bringing a lot of moisture and density into your chocolate cake without making it super heavy. Chocolate and Avocado is just one of those combinations I simply can't stay away from. I have also shared my avocado chocolate mousse already, which is raw.

Carrot Cake with Skyr Lime Frosting

Carrot Cake with Skyr Lime Frosting

Two years ago I was traveling Iceland with my partner. We packed our tent, rented a car and drove around the island for two weeks. One thing I love to do in every country I visit, is spending a LOT of time in local supermarkets, checking out local produce and just getting inspired. So when we arrived in Reykjavik and went to the supermarket to get our travel supplies I found skyr. It's thicker than yoghurt, maybe a bit comparable to German quark, yet a lot richer in taste. So when, the other day, I found skyr in my local supermarket in Berlin I was beyond thrilled!

Sweet Yeasted Dumplings with Vanilla Sauce and Poppyseeds

Sweet Yeasted Dumplings with Vanilla Sauce and Poppyseeds

Although I have never been a regular ski-holiday person - my family just didn't ski when I was young - I have a deep-seated fondness for ski-holiday-desserts. Yes, that's a big deal in Germany and Austria. And they come with the jolliest names: Kaiserschmarrn, Germknödel, Buchteln, and I could go on. So, lately, when I started craving something sweet and hearty at the same time, my mind went straight to German yeasted dumplings (Dampfnudeln).
