Postre de natas is a Colombian milk pudding, which is prepared with layers of milk skin. It requires time, just to warn you. The pudding consists of three ingredients: milk, egg yolk, and sugar. It is very easy to prepare, yet you will need patience. For that reason I hadn’t dared to make it yet, even though my husband begged for it for years. It is one of his favorite Colombian desserts.
I have to admit, I love fall, especially if you check the ground of a dark forest, you will find mushrooms, just like the ones I am presenting today. No, I am kidding, you won’t find these mushrooms in the forest, they are actually made from meringue. However, I do find that they do look very much like their original, don’t you think? I am sure these mushrooms are going to be a show-stopper. And the best thing is, they are basically made from two ingredients. You beat egg whites with sugar, which you then pipe into mushroom caps and stems, you glue it all together with chocolate, and then dust them off with cocoa powder, voilá! Continue Reading…
Sometimes there are recipes that are particularly dear to me. These milhojas from Colombia are one of those. Reason for posting this recipe is the fact that we managed to eat milhojas when we were in Spain. Among the many delicious things I am still dreaming about are these milhojas. Milhojas consist of puff pastry, which is filled with vanilla custard, whipping cream and dulce de leche. Below you will see a picture of the milhojas we ate in the bakery Panetteria de Tirso in Madrid, Spain:
Summer is here and I am posting my very first ice cream on this blog, yay! It is a double chocolate ice cream with a raspberry swirl. It actually is so good, I barely managed to take pictures of it, we just had to eat and eat and eat it. Continue Reading…
About a year ago I tried a mermaid-themed cake for the first time. Back then I simply piped some meringue circles and stacked them on top of each other. But this time I thought, why not go with pavlova in order to create this mermaid pavlova instead. Why and what this all about, I will explain below.
Nothing tastes better on a hot day than a refreshing lemon soufflé. If you want to get all fancy like me, you can also serve the soufflé inside a lemon. It gives this dish its extra tangy flavor and will definitely be a crowd-stopper.
I created this dish originally for my blog event “Colorful Food”. I basically invite you to bake/cook a dish in one rainbow color, either red, pink, orange, yellow, blue, purple or green. For further details please check here. Today obviously the color is YELLOW!
So far we had
Today I am introducing you to mango mini cakes, which do not require any baking. I am also presenting these mango mini cakes to you as I am organizing the blog event “Colorful Food”. I invite you to create a recipe in one of the seven rainbow colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, or pink. If you would like to learn more, please check this blog post. Want to guess which rainbow color I am taking care of today? Well, mango is ORANGE, so today’s recipe is in the rainbow color orange. For red check these strawberry pancakes, yum!
This year for Easter I decided to prepare something dreamy and airy. What better option than to go with pavlova? I went for a pavlova with lemon curd and fresh fruits. Never heard of pavlova? According to my research this dish is seen as the national dish of either Australia or New Zealand, both countries are still fighting about that. In the 1920’s the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova visited both countries and this dish was invented in her honor. It contains a meringue base, which usually has the shape of a nest and is filled with whipped cream and fresh fruits.
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!
I love meringue, that’s why I have lots of recipes with meringue on my blog, even though my blog is not that old yet. Just to name a few: French macaron, meringue nests, rhubarb pie with meringue topping, and meringue on top of berries. For that reason I was very excited when I learned that Lisha from the blog MainBacken (in German) was going to share a meringue recipe for my blog event. In case you don’t know, I am currently hosting a blog event in which I ask you to make something from scratch and to share it with a coffee invite. For further details check here. The event will be over on March 15, 2018, so you still have time.
But let’s give the floor to Lisha:
