Pumpkin Layer Cake with Brown Butter Buttercream for Thanksgiving

Pumpkin Layer Cake with Brown Butter Buttercream for Thanksgiving

Moist and delicious pumpkin layer cake with a buttercream that actually contains brown butter and cream cheese, that’s what I am introducing today. Reason for introducing this cake here ist two-fold. Reason #1 has to do with a German blog event I hosted. It had all to do with pumpkin recipes. For that reason I made these delicious pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting and also this vegan pumpkin pasta with only two ingredients.

Moist Apple Almond Cake

Apfel-Mandel-Kuchen

I often take cake to work. My colleagues are some of my regular test eaters. And since I bring cake to work often, I usually can tell if a recipe stands out. That was definitely the case with this apple almond cake. Suddenly I found post-its saying “Thank you to our baking queen” or “Thanks for making my Thursday morning much sweeter.” My conclusion? This apple almond cake is a keeper, it is a keeper because no other cake has received as many post-it notes. It definitely needs to be posted on the blog. If you want apples in your coffee cake, this is the cake to choose. You have some apple in the cake dough, a lot of apple compote on the top with some nicely browned almonds plus one full apple as pretty decoration on the top. I mean, you got APPLE cake for sure with this one.

Vegan Pumpkin Pasta from Two Ingredients

Vegane Kürbis-Pasta aus zwei Zutaten

Guys, I find it amazing how easy it is to make this two-ingredient vegan pumpkin pasta! Seriously, even if you are not into making your own pasta, I can definitely recommend making this one. You don’t even need a pasta machine, the dough can be rolled out by hand with a rolling pin, cut it into long stripes, and voila, you’ve got yourself delicious tagliatelle! I tried both options, tagliatelle by hand and also using the pasta machine to make spaghetti, both work wonderfully. As stated, this is vegan pumpkin pasta as it only contains pumpkin puree and all-purpose flour as its two ingredients. I find that so awesome!

Maple Walnut Cookies

Ahorn-Walnuss-Cookies

Maple walnut cookies! Invite fall season with this intense cookie to your home. If you love maple and walnuts, this cookie is for you. Unfortunately, it is not that common in Germany to eat cookies all year round, but now with temperature dropping and days getting shorter, even here in Germany cookies are being baked more often and the oven turned on. So even in Europe we finally have no excuse, turn on your oven and make these maple walnut cookies!

Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Rezept für Kürbis-Cookies mit Frischkäse-Topping

Are you in for a pumpkin cookie with cream cheese frosting? Then I might have something for you. This is a cake-like pumpkin cookie that is very soft and has a not too sweet cream cheese frosting serving as a nice contrast. You may not think much about it, but here in Germany pumpkin is usually not served in sweet goods, you will find tons of savory recipes, but sweet ones not so much. I sometimes wonder why. There is a reason why pumpkin is very popular in North America in any baked goods, it has a sweet kind of flavor and carries a lot of fall flavor, makes sense to me. So let’s give these cookies a try!

German Nut Triangles

Super saftige Nussecken

These German nut triangles are one of my favorite desserts from Germany. I just learned recently that you supposedly only serve them during Christmas season in some regions of Germany. However, I remember seeing them everywhere all year round, every bakery had them at least where we lived. Even the school kiosk offered them all the time and I happily ate them day in and day out.

I always get excited during fall and I snap pictures of everything, I wish fall was three quarters of the year. And for this reason I decided to make a simple and easy apple slab pie for picnics.

Cute Little Hedgehogs from Pie Crust

Süße Igel aus Mürbeteig

I am almost to ashamed to admit that I don’t have that many animal recipes on this blog even though I am a huge animal lover. For that reason today these cute little hedgehogs from pie crust need to be published. I am a huge fan of anything related to fall. I love to watch hedgehogs looking for heaps of leaves, it is so cute to see squirrels happily looking for nuts or birds being content that there still is enough food.

Plum Strudel with Cinnamon Streusel

Pflaumenstrudel mit Zimtstreuseln

Today I am presenting the German answer to American pies: strudel! Strudel is a very elastic dough, which is rolled up to a log and contains lots and lots of fruit filling. When I served this plum strudel with cinnamon streusel to my guests, I could barely manage to see any of it as it was gone so quickly. Just as pies, this strudel is a “healthier” version of a cake as the ratio of unsweetend dough to lots of fruit filling simply is genious. If you are into fruity cakes and like pies, you will definitely also enjoy strudel, give this beauty a try.
