Rhubarb Strawberry Crostata

Today I am presenting a rhubarb strawberry crostata or rhubarb strawberry galette. You may call a crostata or galette the cousin of rhubarb pie or rhubarb tart. Yes, you have pie dough, but you just roll it out to a circle, arrange the fruits in the middle of it, and then you fold the edges toward the middle. There is no lattice pattern, no need to decorate, or even using a pie dish, this is much faster and easier. I was very much in the mood for a simple and quick tart, so here it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making this crostata. If you prepare the dough the night before, it comes together in a jiffy.

Finnish Strawberry Cake “mansikkakakku” and Why I am Celebrating

Today I decided to open strawberry season, I am celebrating with this delicious Finnish strawberry cake called “mansikkakakku” (which literally translates as strawberry cake). The cake consists of fluffy sponge cake, whipping cream and lots of strawberries, I tell you, even though it is only the two of us, we managed to eat this cake within a few days, we loved it. This is the cake version of the strawberry sponge cake. Reason for this decadent cake is simple, I am celebrating.

Roasted Strawberry Pie

Today I am presenting a roasted strawberry pie with some braided topping. My strawberry season was extremely long this year. I started in Spain on holiday where they were already at the end of the season to return to Germany and continue. Here in Munich lockal strawberries are just available now, so I have been eating fresh and local strawberries for quite some time now. I didn’t know this, but roasted strawberries are even better than just baked strawberries, believe me, this is a special treat.

Strawberry Tiramisu with no Raw Egg or Alcohol

Strawberry tiramisu with no raw egg or alcohol, who would be interested in a piece? It probably comes as no surprise that I am a huge fan of tiramisu as it contains my beloved sponge cake. I love tiramisu with a fruity flavor. For that reason you can already find a strawberry tiramisu cake on my blog as well as the Brazilian version with peaches.  Today I wanted to introduce the “classic” version. But I am using the word classic lightly as we will make the ladyfingers ourselves and will simply make one full layer instead of single ladyfingers and we use the fruit strawberry. Try to imagine a tiramisu sweetened with elderflower cordial, a slightly lighter cream with mascarpone and farmer’s cheese with no raw egg and strawberries sandwiched in between, once as puree and once fresh. I did enjoy this dessert a lot!

Delicious No-Bake Strawberry Cake

Gesunde Erdbeer-Joghurttorte mit Mandelboden

Update: I rewrote the recipe a bit in 2021 and took fresh pictures

It’s summer! Officially! So I need something fast, something refreshing and also something healthy. That’s why I invented this frozen strawberry cake, which can be done in less than 15 minutes. It is pleasing to the eye and everybody will love it, I promise. It may be one of your new go-to recipes. I at least have it stored as a new favorite. I honestly was surprised. I usually don’t invent cakes. I like to change recipes to me liking, I like to alter them. But start one from scratch? I don’t know what happened, but for some reason I just felt like throwing some strawberries together and hope for the best. I usually don’t mind following a recipe, but this time it was just an impluse reaction, why not mix strawberries with some crunchy almonds? I took quite a risk there, because this cake was a birthday cake for a friend of mine. And since he likes strawberries and since it is summer, I came up with this beauty.
