My Favorite Raspberry Chocolate Cupcakes

Schoko-Himbeer-Cupcakes

Do you love raspberries with chocolate? Then these raspberry chocolate cupcakes are for you. Since my raspberry chocolate cake became the runner-up in 2020 and has already more than 100 reviews, I decided to give this flavor combination another chance. What better option than to ygo for cupcakes? Cupcakes usually require less time and are wonderful for any events, parties, or even for Valentine or a birthday. My version contains my favorite chocolate cupcake, a tart raspberry filling and buttercream bursting with raspberry flavor. No artifical food coloring required.

Fluffy Raspberry Sponge Roll

Himbeer-Biskuitrolle

My husband asked for a raspberry sponge roll for his birthday. Since I love sponge rolls, his wish was my command. Simple as that. I honestly have no idea why sponge rolls seem to be very much out of fashion. They are super quick to make and usually are gone with in seconds. Everybody seems to enjoy them. However, for some reason nobody makes them. Go figure. If you look for sponge rolls on my blog, you will find plenty.

Chicken Pot Pie with Leftovers

Amerikanischer Chicken-Pot-Pie

Today I am presenting chicken pot pie, a main course which is perfect for using leftover chicken, goose, duck or similar from Christmas. Obviously you don’t need to necessarily have leftovers, but you can start from scratch. Just saying. You may also go for other vegetables, traditionally chicken pot pie is served with carrots, mushrooms, and peas, but you can use whatever you have at hand and mix it conveniently with the meat. Regardless of how you vary the filling, you will get a very flaky pie crust and a creamy chicken and vegetable filling. This is perfect souldfood for a cold and chilly winter day.

Brownie-Cookies with Sourdough

Brownie-Cookies mit Sauerteig

Today is December 6, which is Nikolaus in Germany! Children will put their freshly cleaned boots outside the door, which are going to be filled with sweets and cookies. So for that reason we need cookies today! I decided to make a variation of the most baked, rated, and clicked recipe on this blog, which are the brownie cookies. I decided to make these brownie cookies with sourdough. Yes, you read right. When I heard about this the first time, I thought people were crazy. But then I made these vegan brownies with raspberries and was sold. Since my husband bakes all of our bread, we always, always have sourdough in our house. This in turn means that we often have to throw sourdough as it needs to be fed. Since I liked sourdough in brownies, I figured they it would be as good in brownie cookies.

Soft Snickerdoodles

Weiche Zimtkekse aus USA: Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are America’s answer to German cinnamon stars! I love snickerdoodles and I find it super exciting every time a German tries one and declares it the new favorite cookie. Snickerdoodles are easy to prepare and are similar to how sugar cookies are created. You will need cream of tartar for these beauties to stay soft and puffy. The recipe does not require any chilling.

One-Pan Pizza with Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella and Chorizo

Pfannen-Pizza mit Mozzarella und Chorizo

It is one-pan pizza day! Are you in for a pizza with a thick yet fluffy crust? Then this pizza is for you. It reminds me a little of the one you find at Pizza Hut, but better as it is homemade and from scratch. You will need to invest about 25min into the dough as it has a stretching and folding technique you need to repeat every 5 minutes. But other than that it is mostly waiting as this is a typical yeast dough. I also made my very own tomato sauce. You can go with store-bought, but I didn’t mind chopping garlic and onion for this extra delicious sauce. Since this pizza needs to be made the night before and will be chilled in the fridge, I arranged for it to be eaten during lunch as we like to have our main meal during lunchtime. That’s the beauty of this pizza, depending on when you want to eat it, you can schedule accordingly.
