Refreshing Lime Bars

Erfrischende Limetten-Schnittchen

Is it already spring in your region? I currently live in Munich, in the south of Germany and just a few days ago we had heavy snowfall. Today the sun is shining brightly but it is brisk and cold outside. I feel that the snowdrops and crocus are all confused as to whether spring is actually around the corner or not. But be it as it may, I decided to introduce some refreshing lime bars, which are definitely going to bring spring to your plate. I love the fact that they are super easy to prepare, you don’t need a lot of ingredients and that you can serve them for Easter, brunch or anything that needs to be brigthened by some fresh yellow color. Also, these will intensify in flavor on day 2 or 3, so perfect if you want to make them in advance.

Erfrischende Limetten-SchnittchenI decided I needed a super simple and quick recipe. There have been too many complicated ones recently. We simply don’t have time to be in the kitchen for so long, especially if it is supposedly made from scratch. How about these delicious lime bars? You can also make them with lemon or any other citric fruit. I love them with lime. The shortcrust is not prepared the regular way with cold butter, but don’t despair, melting the butter is actually what makes this so easy to prepare. And the lime curd is also done in a jiffy, you basically whisk together all ingredients and that’s it. Let the oven do the hard work.

Toasted coconut banana muffins with lime drizzle

I am happy to say that Lizet from the blog Chipa by the Dozen (English and Spanish) agreed to also post a recipe for my blog event Invite to a Coffee. You have time until March 15, 2018 to take part, if you are interested, please check further details here.

nvitation_to_a_coffeeThat’s because Lizet lives in Paraguay even though she is Bolivian and therefore has a lot of Latin American recipes on her blog Chipa by the Dozen (chipa are a type of cheese bread I am determined to also share on my blog in the future). I also feel that the treat she brought has an interesting Latin American twist, but let’s give the floor to her.

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.
