Moist Blueberry Lemon Cake

Super saftige Heidelbeer-Zitronen-Torte

Do you also bake your own birthday cake? I definitely did this year. When I saw this delicious blueberry lemon cake on the blog Knusperstübchen (in German) I knew this was going to be my birthday cake. Especially since I hadn’t eaten any sweets in week. I wanted to indulge in this beauty. Obviously I had to tweak the recipe a bit. But when I finally digged into the first piece, there was silence. Silence for a full piece of cake, this is how good the cake was. This is a super moist blueberry lemon cake as it contains a lot of fresh blueberries. I also like the fact that so much lemon zest and lemon juice is used in both, the cake and also the cream.

Iced Coffee Cheesecake, no bake

Eiskalter Kaffee-Cheesecake ohne backen

Iced Coffee Cheesecake you don’t have to bake! That’s the star of today’s post. People have told me that it tastes a little like tiramisu, but it does not contain mascarpone or raw eggs, this truely is a cheesecake, combined with whipped cream and coffee you will have creamy deliciousness on your plate. I didn’t go for the traditional cookie or graham cracker crust, instead I decided for pumpernickel. Not sure if you have ever heard of it, this is extremely dark and moist bread from Germany. Obviously you can replace it, but the sweet rye bread does add a very nice touch to this cheesecake.

The second layer is a mix of cream cheese and whipped cream with coffee flavor, the thrid layer is the same plus melted chocolate, and the top layer is whipping cream combined with chocolate, dusted with some cocoa powder.

No-bake Lime Cheesecake

Lime Cheesecake

We had so many limes at home. So what to do with them? Smoothies? Cocktails? I decided to go with a no-bake cheesecake. With lots of lime flavor. I am really proud because I invented this recipe. Normally I like to follow recipes. It is nice to simply follow instructions, one step at a time. It is very relaxing. At least for me baking is really relaxing. That’s why I am so proud that I invented this cake. A creamy cheesecake with a nice tangy lime flavor. Trust me, you will taste the lime.

Summer Lemon Cookies

Summer Lemon Cookies

I think I have mentioned that Germans aren’t that much into cookies. Especially not in summer. But when I brought these Summer Lemon Cookies to work the other day, they were gone within minutes. Even I was a little surprised. Maybe it was because they are full of lemon flavor and you can definitely taste the cream cheese. Since they are rolled in sugar before baking, they have a nice crunchy touch, but are soft in the center. I don’t know. But what I do know is that these cookies are really easy to prepare and do NOT need to sit in the fridge to develop their flavor. You can whip them up in about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Summer Lemon CookiesEven if it is hot, I promise you, your oven won’t be turned on for too long. So yes, go ahead and makes these delicious friends!

If you are more of a chocolate person, you may enjoy these Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Summer Lemon Cookies

Serves: 25 cookies, depending on size
Cooking Time: 10min preparation +10min baking

Ingredients

  • 300 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of cornstarch
  • A pinch salt
  • 100 grams of regular sugar, + 50 grams for rolling
  • 120 grams of unsalted butter, softened
  • 113 grams of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg, size L, room temperature
  • 45 milliliters of fresh lemon juice (I usually need no more than one lemon)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest (about half a lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, see here how to make your own

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2

Whisk the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt in a medium-size bowl. Set aside.

3

Pour about 50 grams of regular sugar in a small container. Set aside.

4

Cream the butter and cream cheese in a large bowl with a mixer for about two minutes, then add 100 grams of sugar and mix one more minute. Add the egg, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and either mix on low or using a wooden spoon until combined.

5

Roll balls of dough in the size of a walnut and roll in prepared sugar afterwards. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cookies will flatten out slightly. Gently press down each cookie with the bottom part of a glass. Bake the cookies for 10 to 11 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the edges. Let cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Notes

Cookies can be kept in an air-tight container for a few days.

I am taking this cookie also to the link party Fiesta Friday.

So which cookie is your favorite in summer?
