The perfect Christmas dessert – cranberry chocolate cake…


….

Hi guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate links-not sponsored)
usually this close to Christmas I have my Christmas menu all together and already tried but neither of both has happened so far. I am still not done with the finishing touches of my main course and I don´t have a dessert. But that is about to change.

What do you think of this beautiful Christmas inspired cranberry chocolate cake. I think it looks so great and would definitely be a treat for the holidays. Anyone with me?

You may think it is super hard to make but in fact it isn´t at all. It definitely takes less time in comparison to many other cakes/cupcakes I have made and looks really festive.

So let´s put on our aprons and get started:

Ingredients dough:
– 5 eggs
– 150 gr. of sugar
– 1 table spoon of vanilla sugar
– 150 gr. of flour
– 1 1/2 tea spoons of baking soda
– 3 table spoons of cocoa

Be sure to double the dough and bake it in two pans cause it won´t be enough for the whole cake.  

Ingredients filling:
–  1 glass of cranberries
– 1 litre of heavy cream
– 12 sheets of white gelatin
– 5 table spoons of vanilla sugar

Ingredients topping:

– 150 gr. of dark chocolate couverture
– a few spoons of cranberries
– mix eggs and sugar and stir until fluffy
– add the other dry ingredients and stir for another 2 mintues (best to use a kitchen mashine)
– pour batter into 2 cake pans (be sure you doubled the ingredients for the dough, otherwise it won´t be enough)
– bake for 25 minutes at 160 degrees
–  meanwhile melt the dark chocolate couverture and spread between two baking sheet
– roll them up and let the chocolate cool down in the fridge
– after your cake layers have cooled down coat both with the cranberries 
 – now whip your cream (add the gelatine afterwards, be sure to follow the constructions on the packaging) and add the sugar while doing so
– spread the half of your whipped cream mixture on the first cake layer and top with second cake layer, then spread the rest of your mixture
 – be sure to keep the cake ring around it and let it cool for three hours or over night
– garnish with cranberries
– open your parchment paper roll of dark chocolate couverture and spread it over your cake  
– et voilà you have the perfect Christmas cake or Christmas dessert
If you are making the cake please tell me if you liked it. My mom was obsessed over it and she usually never likes anything.

 Hi guys,

by browsing my recipe tab you will probably notice that I love to bake. Finding new recipes to try or creating some by myself is a real pleasure to me although it takes a lot of time and dedication and overall patience. So most of the time I am reaching for easy recipes which look like they made a lot of work. Gingerbread houses are one of these. Not only do they look adorable they also taste really good. So if you get tired of looking at it just eat it. 

Over all the Christmas cookie baking we often forget about how much fun it is to make one of the gingerbread houses (at least over here). And it is even more fun and so eary if you can use a template. So for today´s giveaway I a have a whole set of gingerbread house cutters for a stressfree baking.

The most hyped Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies on the Internet right now…

….

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung-Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
I know that there are trends in every section of the internet whether it is beauty, home decor or fashion but the latest and most written trend I have seen in the last two weeks was about these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. A bunch full of bloggers recreated the recipe and shared it on their blog and that made me curious and as a lover of cookies and everything pumpkin I had to try it. You can find the original recipe here.

I didn´t change a single ingredient cause I was to excited how these would taste and guys they are delicious. To be honest they don´t have the usual cookie consistency. The dough is more like from a cake in the end. So I wouldn´t take away a few minutes from their baking time cause they stay soft. 

But that doesn´t hurt at all does it?! I made the second batch only three days after and we still love them. Even my mom eats them and she isn´t a friend of either sugar or pumpkin.

So maybe I could give you an impetus to make a batch of delicious cookies for your weekend treat. They are seriously so so good.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
