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!
#1 Pumpkin roll in the shape of a pumpkin
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.

2. Cute owl cupcakes
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.

Today I am introducing a delicious plum tart with cinnamon streusel. To be honest, I don’t even understand why I haven’t posted the recipe here before. It is a recipe that has been passed on in my family. The tart you see below was eaten by a few people fighting over the last piece. I have mentioned elsewhere that I usually don’t eat more than a piece of all the cakes I produce, but with this tart I was happy to ask for a second and even third slice. That’s how good it is.
Moin, or hello my dear friends! Today I brought along a special treat from the city I live in: Franzbrötchen! That’s Hamburg’s version of a cinnamon roll. If you follow me on Facebook, you will have seen questions about this treat because I tried several recipes before I was happy. Franzbrötchen is the signature dish from Hamburg. I can guarantee you, wherever you go in Hamburg, you will smell cinnamon as soon as you come close to a bakery. They are sold everywhere and I would say the smell of cinnamon represents Hamburg very much. Franzbrötchen are a mix of croissants and cinnamon rolls. They have lots of cinnamon and brown sugar, which may caramelize a little in the baking process, yum!
