Today you will get a simple, yet extra moist and very lemony lemon loaf or lemon pound cake. If my hubby were to decide, I am sure I would be making cakes with citrus fruits all the time. It is by no accident that my first published recipe is a French tarte au citron oder lemon tart. I made it for Valentine’s Day and published it shortly afterwards. My list can go on and on, I do have double lemon cupcakes, blueberry lemon cake, American lemon pie and (key) lime pie on the blog, I think it is endless. All of these baked goods were for him, of course. He just loves this tart flavor and I won’t say no to lemons and limes either. Especially in winter when fruits are harder to get and the options limited. So I decided to make a simple lemon loaf. The recipe I found used tons of lemons so I gave it a go and the result is full of lemon flavor.
Today you will get the ultimate chocolate cake with creamy chocolate mousse filling and chocolate ganache! If this is not something for dark days in November, I don’t know what is. I believe there is a reason why the most loved, baked, and clicked recipe on my site are these brownie cookies. I originally posted that recipe in November while living in Hamburg, which is known to be dark in winter. So here we come again with yet another chocolate recipe to cheer you up. As a chocoholic I have a full category dedicated to chocolate of course, feel free to check it out.
Finally it is plum time! For that reason you get Bavarian Zwetschgendatschi or plum cake today. Since I have been living in Munich, the capital of Bavaria, for more than a year, I need to introduce some local traditions and one of them definitely is Zwetschgendatschi. There are a lots of fights about what is the most classic version of this iconic dish. You can either prepare it with yeast dough or a pie crust, you may wish to only serve it with plums for them to shine. I, however, am a huge fan of crumbs or streusel and therefore decided to go with the crumb version. If you don’t want to wait for the yeast dough to rise, you can also make this plum tart, which I like just the same.
These German nut triangles are one of my favorite desserts from Germany. I just learned recently that you supposedly only serve them during Christmas season in some regions of Germany. However, I remember seeing them everywhere all year round, every bakery had them at least where we lived. Even the school kiosk offered them all the time and I happily ate them day in and day out.
Yeah, I know, there are so many blueberry muffin recipes out there. I know. But this is my favorite and it is so simple. Please bear with me and make a dozen, or two. Because they are full of this blueberry goodness, and they just make you happy. I promise.
