I already blogged about the Paraguayan version of cheese bread. But today I want to introduce you to Colombian cheese bread: pandebonos! Pandebonos are, as many Latin American recipes, gluten free as they are prepared with tapioca starch. Pandebonos take very little time to prepare and are easy to make with regular ingredients.
Pumpkin roll with apple buttercream? Pumpkin doesn’t play a very important role in baking here in Germany. At least until recently. No, we have not yet discovered its use for cheesecake and the like.
Can I confess something? I have never been a big fan of pumpkin pie. I know, kill me know. But I just don’t like the flavor that much. I have tried my share of pumpkin pies, but still. That’s why I have ignored pumpkin mainly in baking.
But then I met my hubby and hubby is a big fan of pumpkin pie. So I started looking for good recipes. This recipe is currently his favorite. If you like pumpkin pie, try it, it is great. But as stated, I didn’t get excited. Because I don’t like such a dominant pumpkin flavor.
I love to bake with others. Just knowing that somebody else is doing the same thing as me in their kitchen, I don’t know, it gets me excited. For that reason I am part of many baking groups. If you know anyone in Hamburg, Germany who loves to bake, please contact me and let me know.
Needless to say that when Sally, a famous food blogger from the U.S. started her monthly baking challenge, I was very happy to join. I was especially happy when she decided that the May challenge was to include strawberries (any fruit makes me happy, but berries are the best) and a sponge roll. If you would like to learn more about her baking challenge, check it out here. Continue Reading…
I currently live in Hamburg, not that far away from the Danish border. One thing I notice is that you find a lot of Scandinavian products here. Cheeses of various kinds, Rødgrød (red berry sauce), and Flæskesvær (fried pork rind) are only a few. It probably comes as no surprise that I felt I wanted to try a Danish recipe for buns. So here you go with a delicious bun prepared with yoghurt the night before.
Danish people are probably as obsessed with bread as are Germans. They have perfected the simple cold cuts on a delicious slice of bread, their Smørebrød is known worldwide. The buttered rye bread is crowned with a creative topping, this can be a cold cut, but ranges from vegan to extremely meaty options. I was fortunate enough to try Smørebrød when I was in Copenhagen and can highly recommend it. If you have the chance, try it, I find it extremely delicious (see also pictures).
