I am so excited today to share this post with you as Nina from the blog Törtchen – Made in Berlin (cupcakes made in Berlin) is sharing a very German recipe with us here. As you can see from my very long blog title, it is close to impossible to translate this treat I ate so often as a child. Literally translated the dish is called “cold dog.” Why this is the case, I haven’t been able to find out other than it is done cold, so with no baking, but what I can assure you is that this is one of my favorite things to eat. I do distinctly remember licking my fingers after getting a piece and being very excited about the high amount of chocolate after each bite. Because, you know, chocolate is always great!
We had so many limes at home. So what to do with them? Smoothies? Cocktails? I decided to go with a no-bake cheesecake. With lots of lime flavor. I am really proud because I invented this recipe. Normally I like to follow recipes. It is nice to simply follow instructions, one step at a time. It is very relaxing. At least for me baking is really relaxing. That’s why I am so proud that I invented this cake. A creamy cheesecake with a nice tangy lime flavor. Trust me, you will taste the lime.
It’s summer! Officially! So I need something fast, something refreshing and also something healthy. That’s why I invented this frozen strawberry cake, which can be done in less than 15 minutes. It is pleasing to the eye and everybody will love it, I promise. It may be one of your new go-to recipes. I at least have it stored as a new favorite. I honestly was surprised. I usually don’t invent cakes. I like to change recipes to me liking, I like to alter them. But start one from scratch? I don’t know what happened, but for some reason I just felt like throwing some strawberries together and hope for the best. I usually don’t mind following a recipe, but this time it was just an impluse reaction, why not mix strawberries with some crunchy almonds? I took quite a risk there, because this cake was a birthday cake for a friend of mine. And since he likes strawberries and since it is summer, I came up with this beauty.
