Marble cake is a very traditional cake in Germany and will always remind me of my childhood. Whether it was someone's birthday, a visit from my grandparents or 'just because' - my mom's marble cake was always a hit with everyone and it was best enjoyed with a thick, glossy coat of chocolate on top. Those lazy Sunday afternoons, your favourite people assembled around the dining room, enjoying hot coffee and fresh cake and each other's companies, those will always be one of my favourite childhood...

I've realised a few years ago that I like white chocolate. For most of my life, I didn't like it - or at least that's what I thought. I remember trying it once, when I was quite little, and it seemed overly sweet - I wasn't able to eat a whole bar of it, like I was with any other chocolate, so what was the point? I grew up not really eating white chocolate, unless it was in a form of dessert. Then, a few years ago I gave it another try and noticed that good quality white chocolate, even though...

It was a friend's birthday last week and after two busy weeks starting a new job, I found myself excited to bake on the weekend. For me, baking is the most relaxing and fun thing to do, if I have time to research, plan and prep. Last-minute baking has a place in my life, too, but on the weekends I like to really take my time to bake. When I'm not rushed, I can enjoy every step. Thankfully, I usually see people on Sunday evenings that I can share my sweets with. Because few things are better...

The past year it's been pretty quiet on this blog. That's because I've spend the past year in the USA. It has definitely been my most exciting and best year yet. However, while I did bake regularly, there wasn't much time for taking pictures and blogging about it. But now I'm back in Germany, where it's cold enough to turn on the oven any day and my favourite holiday, Christmas, is right around the corner. While I miss my favourite person a lot, I am excited to spend this Christmas with my...

Sometimes I have the urge to bake something and I race to my pantry and make a shopping list - only to realise it's Sunday and I can't simply go to the next supermarket to buy groceries. Ugh. In those moments I curse on Germany and it's stupid (but probably very economically reasonable) store hours. And then there are those Sundays where I realise on 8am (yes, I am an early bird) that I still have an opened jar of buttermilk in my fridge from making a birthday cake for a friend a few days...

Spring has finally arrived! Sitting outside with your loved ones (or by yourself and just enjoying the peace & quiet), drinking coffee, eating cake... Those are basically my favourite things to do as soon as it gets hotter than 18°C in Germany. And somehow I always crave fruity cakes in spring, preferably rhubarb and any kind of berry. But when I decided to make this cake last month, it was a sunday and no fresh fruit, eggs or open store in sight - which is where this amazingly easy recipe...

If you're an avid food blog reader like me, chances are you've stumbled upon these Salted Chocolate Chunk Shortbread Cookies by Alison Roman in the last months. I feel like they've been all over my favourite food blogs and they even became Instagram famous. No wonder, this shortbread-meets-chocolate chip cookies-meets-salted butter zombie cookie looks pretty great. I mean, I don't know about you, but oozing chocolate chunks in cookies will get MY likes any day. And so my curiosity (and my sweet...

When you see the picture above, with those beautiful pink and red sprinkles and the pink plates, you could assume that I baked this delicious, frosted chocolate & coconut cake specifically for this upcoming Valentine's Day! I haven't though - I just LOVE the combination of chocolate and coconut, whether it's in cake, cereal or candy. And pink (or rather blush) is my favourite colour, so when it came to decorating this yummy treat, the choice was easy: white stars, pink pearls and colourful...

Hello World. I haven't posted anything on this blog in a long time and it almost feels weird to write again. What happened? Lots of things! I started attending church on Sundays, which meant less time for baking on sunday afternoons. Also, I fell in love and got a boyfriend. No biggie. Ha! Of course it's a biggie! So yeah. All of a sudden my priorities shifted. He is a pretty amazing guy, actually the best man I know, and I love him a whole lot. (He subscribed to the blog, let's see whether he...

Do you know this feeling? Outside it's cold and rainy and just dreary in general. You're hiding away inside, maybe drinking your (third) cup of coffee and you're thinking, man, all I need right now is a GOOD chocolate chip cookie. Like, a big one with crispy edges and a soft interior that melts in your mouth and big pieces of chocolate in every bite. True story, when I was a kid, I was obsessed with those huge Subway cookies. Somehow those were the ultimate, American chocolate chip cookie to...
