Snickerdoodles with Brown Butter

Snickerdoodles mit gebräunter Butter

Snickerdoodles with brown butter are a cinnamon surprise from the U.S. I decided that they are perfect for the season. In case you don’t know, snickerdoodles have a similar base as sugar cookies, but are then formed into balls which are then rolled in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon before you bake them. As far as I know you can find snickerdoodles in the U.S. throughout the year, however, due to their cinnamon flavor I decided to make some during the season.

Plum Cinnamon Cupcakes with Maple Cream Frosting

Pflaumen-Zimt-Cupcakes mit Ahornsirup-Sahnehaube

Today I am introducing plum cinnamon cupcakes with maple cream frosting. Just because. The main reason is because I love the mix of plums with cinnamon, there is nothing better than this combo in fall in my opinion.

The second reason is because you loved my simple plum tart with cinnamon streusel so much. No other recipe was clicked more than often in September. Even looking at all blog entries from 2018, it already ranks as No.5. The pictures below show the tart how I made it for my relatives during our holiday in Spain. I barely managed to take pictures, that’s how quickly it disappeared. I just love the fact that it is so versatile, I made it in a springform pan as there was no other option. Works just as well.

Plum Tart with Cinnamon Streusel

Pflaumentarte mit Zimtstreuseln

Today I am introducing a delicious plum tart with cinnamon streusel. To be honest, I don’t even understand why I haven’t posted the recipe here before. It is a recipe that has been passed on in my family. The tart you see below was eaten by a few people fighting over the last piece. I have mentioned elsewhere that I usually don’t eat more than a piece of all the cakes I produce, but with this tart I was happy to ask for a second and even third slice. That’s how good it is.

Hamburg’s version of cinnamon rolls: Franzbrötchen!

Leckere Franzbrötchen aus Hamburg aus einfachem Hefeteig

Moin, or hello my dear friends! Today I brought along a special treat from the city I live in: Franzbrötchen! That’s Hamburg’s version of a cinnamon roll. If you follow me on Facebook, you will have seen questions about this treat because I tried several recipes before I was happy. Franzbrötchen is the signature dish from Hamburg. I can guarantee you, wherever you go in Hamburg, you will smell cinnamon as soon as you come close to a bakery. They are sold everywhere and I would say the smell of cinnamon represents Hamburg very much. Franzbrötchen are a mix of croissants and cinnamon rolls. They have lots of cinnamon and brown sugar, which may caramelize a little in the baking process, yum!
