Today I am introducing you to super moist apple cupcakes with caramel frosting and some extra drizzles of caramel. If you are on the lookout for moist cupcakes that are easy to prepare and you love caramel, these are perfect for you! This cupcake is moist and has a very creamy and light frosting as a topping. Perfect for any season.
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.
I can’t believe I had forgotten about this apple pie with cream cheese pie crust! Sometimes you need to be reminded, in this instance it was my mom who actually baked the pie when I came for a visit for me to remember. I had sent her this recipe more than 15 years ago when I was fortunate enough to spent a year in Canada. This is an apple pie prepared with a cream cheese pie crust, so you will not need any egg or water. It basically has the cream cheese as the binder. Ironically, I had totally forgotten about this method of making pie crust, so I was very happy when she actually made this apple pie for my visit the other day. Continue Reading…
Guys, I looooove fall. I just love this golden light, the rustling of leaves, I just love every aspect of it, including rainy days as these are so perfect for reading a nice book with a thick and snuggly blanket. 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.
Tart Tatin, simple, plain, classic. This is what you will get on my blog today. Reason for it was a colleague of mine you gifted me with some home-grown apples. So then I thought, finally I have the chance to actually introduce this classic recipe here, even though I have been making it for a while already. This time I wanted to do it the really old-fashioned way, you know, with an oven-proof skillet, with apples, caramel and a pastry dough. Can you believe that classic tarte tartin actually only contains four ingredients: apples, sugar, butter, and flour?
Have I mentioned before that I love fall? It is my favorite season. I just love everything, the cozy scent of cinnamon, warm and snuggly blankets, hot chocolate, the golden sunlight, there is very little I don’t like about fall. I even enjoy the rain, even if I have to wear a rain jacket and rain pants when I cycle to work and feel the raindrops hitting my face. It’s like an old friend I am happy to say hi to. For that reason it is time that I give you a list of my favorite fall recipes. Oh, there is so much you can bake with, apples, plums, cinnamon, pumpkin, I just love fall ingredients! As today is the first day of fall, I officially wanted to do a collection of fall recipes. I hope you find something to your liking!
This is vegan yeast dough that is pretty easy to prepare and is definitely going to be a show-stopper. I brought these pumpkin rolls to a party once and I was asked to pass on the recipe several times.
I made a mistake the first time I made these. I gave these cute little owls names. And then it was so hard to actually bite into one of these big eyes… Really bad idea. You will need Oreos and M&Ms, it’s really simple to make.
Pumpkin roll with apple buttercream? Pumpkin doesn’t play a very important role in baking here in Germany. At least until recently. No, we have not yet discovered its use for cheesecake and the like.
Can I confess something? I have never been a big fan of pumpkin pie. I know, kill me know. But I just don’t like the flavor that much. I have tried my share of pumpkin pies, but still. That’s why I have ignored pumpkin mainly in baking.
But then I met my hubby and hubby is a big fan of pumpkin pie. So I started looking for good recipes. This recipe is currently his favorite. If you like pumpkin pie, try it, it is great. But as stated, I didn’t get excited. Because I don’t like such a dominant pumpkin flavor.
If you are looking for the perfect pie for Thanksgiving, this is for you. This is the perfect winter/fall pie with lots of juicy apples, fresh cranberries, and a hint of almond. Let me introduce Apple Cranberry Almond Pie to you!
Warning: This cake takes time. A lot of time. I usually like simple recipes, I am not somebody who spends hours and hours in the kitchen. Except for special occasions. Really special occasions. Like Easter and Christmas. So this cake is my Easter Special. I mean, it does require a lot of work. Be prepared.
