Pecan pie adapted for readers in Germany! If you are looking for a recipe which is not sickenly sweet, but actually makes you taste the wonderful pecans, this recipe is for you! Needless to say that this recipe does not require any corn syrup and is made with molasses instead. If you have difficulty getting hold of pecans, you may as well use walnuts instead.
I was so ready to bake after three weeks of holidays in Colombia. Yes, I did have the chance to bake something nice for my parents in law in Colombia, but believe me, it is just not the same. I didn’t have a food scale, there were only two types of wheat flour to be found, many people were not sure whether the oven works in Fahrenheit or Celsius (I am not kidding, ovens are barely used in Colombian cuisine). I was ready to bake in my own kitchen. So I was happily browsing the internet, catching up with all the nice food blogs and found a baking event. I always like to bake according to some restrictions, somehow it makes me way more creative. Sure enough, this one was about including nuts. That’s really not hard. We had gotten plums right out of the plane and I still had some pecans at home. For that reason I decided to make mini bundt cakes with pecan caramel. They are really easy to prepare and really taste great.
