Summery Blackberry Lavender Cake

Sommerliche Brombeer-Lavendel-Torte

I love summer cakes, there are so many fruits to choose from. You can bake a berry chocolate layer cake, a strawberry tiramisu cake, a layer cake with peaches or the classic cherry black forest cake. But today I brought along this summery blackberry lavender cake.

Sommerliche Brombeer-Lavendel-TorteThe vanilla cake layers are brushed with lavender syrup, filled with blackberry jam, and the buttercream contains a lot of blackberries. I won’t deny it, this cake is quite a bit of work, but the good thing is that you can make it in advance. If you prepare the entire cake the night before, you will get an even intenser flavor the next day. So good!Sommerliche Brombeer-Lavendel-Torte

Blog Birthday Coming Up and a Delicious Chocolate Strawberry Cake

Erdbeer-Schokotorte

In exactly one week, on February 15th my blog will turn two. For this reason I decided to prepare a delicious chocolate strawberry cake. It is a very festive cake, so I think it would fit also on Valentine’s Day or later Mother’s Day.

Erdbeer-Schokotorte When I started blogging about two years ago, my first blog post was French lemon tarts. I started blogging to be sure to have all the recipes I liked in one place. You know, not frantically looking for a little piece of paper, checking whether I had received a recipe on a napkin and the like. I also liked the fact that I could simply forward a link to my friends and family if they requested for me to pass on a recipe. So much easier than having to write it down in some form. Yes, I do bake with my blog, I usually have my cell phone close by.

August is one of my favorite months, not only because it is my birthday, but also because it is warm, yet not too hot (okay, this year is an exception) and it is so relaxed, I feel August is the month when people finally get into real holiday mood. When they were finally able to let go of things and focus on the present. So I decided to make an easy cake with my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. This is a chocolate chip cookie cake. Or a chocolate chip cookie in cake form. chocolate chip cookie cake Continue Reading…

Pumpkin Layer Cake with Pear Buttercream and Caramelized Walnuts

Kürbistorte mit Birnencerme und karamellisierten Walnüssen

This layer cake is perfect for fall/winter as it is a hybrid. Hybrid because it contains pumpkin, which for me is associated with fall, but also winter as it has pears and walnuts. You think a pumpkin layer cake? Really? But once I tried a latte macciato with pumpkin, I  thought, why not a layer cake? Below pumpkin layer cake with pear buttercream and caramelized walnuts (I just love this title, it just makes me proud), was invented by me. Don’t worry, if you are not a big fan of pumpkin, its flavor is very subtle. Trust me. I have to say, I was a bit surprised when I started looking for recipes. Pumpkin and caramel is common as is pumpkin and chococlate. But pumpkin and pear is rare. At least in the baking department. But I just love that combination. Pumpkin and pear, I feel it is perfect. Maybe this cake is perfect for your Thanksgiving party? Or to start holiday baking season? It definitely is a show-off!
