Cheesecake on a Stick – Colorful Spring and Easter Dessert…

….

Some recipes are made for eternity and will be made uncountable times in your life and a cheesecake is one of it in my opinion. It is easy, classic, usually a crowd pleaser and can be super versatile by adding what you like as topping or filling as well.

So for our Easter brunch I make a carrot cake every year and decided I want to add a fancy version of my chesesecake as well.

Lots of color is one thing I especially like when Spring rolls around, the other thing is and over the top topping on my cake. I can not eat much of it cause of my Gestational Diabetes but I already made a little list on what I am going to eat first after this baby will be born.

The recipe itself is pretty easy. It is a cheesebake without the crust so you only have to make the batter and put it into the oven for about 50 minutes at 170° degrees.

So here are the ingredients you will need:

– 250 gr of soft butter

– 250 gr of white sugar

– 4 egg yolks

– 4 egg whites

– zest of 1 lemon

– 125 gr semolina

– 2 teaspoons of baking soda

– 1 package of vanilla pudding

– 750 gr of lowfat quark

– pinch of salt

– mix butter, sugar and salt together until creamy

– add the eggy yolks and mix until smooth

– now add the lemon zest, semolina, baking soda, vanilla pudding and quark until your batter is super smooth

– beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until they are fluffy and firm and then carefully fold it into your quark batter 

– put your batter into your cake tin and then bake 

After letting it sit to cool in the cake tin (which is absolutely necessary cause the dough won´t get hard unitl it has cooled of) I cut it into about 12 to 15 pieces, depends on the thickness of the cake and put them on a sheet of baking paper. Then I cut the straws and put them into the middle of the cheesecake. I love to match the decor with the straws but that is just a personal preference of mine.

For the deocr of my cheesecake on a stick I got different colored candy melts from Wilton. They are the easiest to melt and have super fun colors. I also added some crispy chocolate eggs, sprinkles and chocolate chips to the mix.

As for decorating the cheesecake I am drizzling the chocolate all over the piece of cake. I tried to dip it into but it gets to heavy and is to much to eat if it is covererd fully in chocolate but that is your decicison. Just make sure the chocolate is super liquid so you get a nice finish when it hardens on your piece of cake. After that I immediately put my toppings on the hot chocolate so it sticks to it when it gets cold.

These are three examples I made on the weekend but you can really use any chocolate color or topping you would like. Fresh fruit may also look really cute but it won´t last as long.

I started the year pretty strong with some fresh fashion posts and also worked out quite often so I wanted to share one of our Christmas and NYE desserts we indulged in and it tasted amazing plus it is super easy and quick to make – always a plus for desserts cause they can definitely take quite some time to make.

Since I didn´t have a dessert bowl I went with these pretty gold rim glasses I got from H&M Home years ago. I just love the way the dessert looked in the glasses and the portions still weren´t too big.

Indredients:

– low-fat quark

– mascarpone

– frozen mango or fresh (however you like it)

– Giotto

– vanilla sugar

– cream

– physalis

I mixed the mascarpone with the low-fat quark and the vanilla sugar. I really don´t have written down the amount I used, I used mixed it together until I liked the taste. But I would say mascarpone and low-fat quark can be the same amount. 

Let the frozen mango thaw overnight and blend it the next morning until it is smooth. 

So for the Giotto balls I used a rolling pin to crush them. 

That´s it so far in terms of preparation. Now get your glasses and start assembling your layered dessert.

I went with a layer of Giotto, mascarpone mix, mango, Giotto, mascarpone mix, cream and topped it of with some whole Giotto and physalis.

Everyone loved it on Christmas so I made it again for NYE. To be honest you could exchange the fruit for any you like. Would be super cute with strawberries for Valentine´s Day as well.

Pumpkin Spice Mini Bundt Cakes topped with Black and White Chocolate…

….

Happy Friday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I am coming in hot with a sweet treat today – Pumpkin Spice Mini Bundt Cakes with White and Black Chocolate and little leaves on top. THE perfect addition to your afternoon Fall coffee. 

And let me tell you they are super easy. All I did was get a bundt cake mix and I just added the pumpkin spice and cinnamon into the batter and put it into the cake tins. 

While the little cakes cool down you can use the heat in the oven to melt down the chocolate. 

Sprinkle the chocolate on top of your cakes and add a cute Fall treat to it. The leaves I got here are edible paper. Aren´t these stinkin´cute ???

Fall bakery is my absolute favorite. I am going to make pumpkin bread tomorrow and also have planned some pumpkin spice waffles for next week. 

We are driving to a pumpkin garden tomorrow and I am so excited cause I haven´t seen any real pumpkins since last year. So I can finally get started on my front porch decor.

The best Cinnamon Rolls Recipe that´s out there…

 

….

Happy Friday, 

(post contains links/werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Links-not sponsored)

I have a very special treat for you today. In my opinion there aren´t much more comforting foods out there than a warm cinnamon roll with a fresh and zesty cream cheese frosting and since you all are my people I believe you think the same way.

Following Rach Parcell for years I always wondered about her perfect cinnamon rolls and now I know where the recipe is from. The site is called The Food Nanny and let me tell you the cinnamon rolls are too die for. I made them several times and they even get better and easiert every time. 

They are goey on the inside with lots of cinnamon and sugar and cross but soft on the outside. The cream cheese frosting is optional but we like to eat it like that in this house so here it isn´t an option. Super easy three ingredients cream cheese frosting. I use one package of creame cheese (300 gramms), half cup of confectioners sugar and a big squirt of lemon juice. I mix everything together and add it onto the still warm rolls. If you want it to melt down even more you could also add butter to the frosting. 

That´s it for today, but I could honestly rave on about this delicous recipe for hours not that I need to. Bake it and see for yourself. 

Have a nice weekend and see you on Monday.
