….


Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate link / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
I wanted to share another recipe on the blog with you today. Since Mother´s Day is on Sunday and you don´t have enough time left to get a gift why not make a beautiful and tasty cake by yourself ?!
It is too hard and won´t taste good you think ? Don´t be too hard on yourself. With a little patience and dedication it will work.

These are two super quick and easy recipes for the dough and the frosting I am posting today. 


Ingredients for the dough:
– 5 eggs
– 100 gr. sugar
– 250 gr. butter
– 100 gr. confectioners sugar sifted
– pinch of salt
– lemon zest 
– 100 gr. flour
– 100 gr. corn starch
– 1 tblsp. baking soda

Ingredients frosting:

– 250 grams white chocolate melted and cooled 
– 2 tablespoons lemon juice 
– 320 grams butter soft
– 2 cups of confectioners sugar sifted 
– 450 grams cream cheese in room temperature

Decor:
– marzipan roses
– sugar flowers 

Direction for the batter:
– mix the sugar, eggs, butter, confectioners sugar and lemon zest until creamy 
– add the flour, baking soda, corn starch and salt
– let it mix the batter for about 3 minutes

– take two small baking pans and spread the butter evenly
– bake for 45 minutes on 165° degrees

Directions for the frosting:
– melt the chocolate until creamy
– put the butter out of the fridge so it gets soft
– when chocolate isn´t hot anymore but still creamy and butter is soft put all the ingredients for the frosting together and mix for about 3 minutes
– put the frosting into the freezer for about 5 minutes
– add frosting onto your cake, layer by layer 

and garnish how you like.

Happy baking guys. If there are any questions left feel free to ask.

Food Friday – quick and easy turkey garlic wraps…

wooden board here and here / cactus figure here or here / glass jar here / wooden spoon here / skillet here

….

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
I am all in for super quick and easy recipes with lots of melted cheese lately. Why is cheese even better when it has melted ???

The dish I am sharing today has been on repeat quite a lot. I almost cook it once a week with different ingredients but that just shows how versatile and delicious it is.

The ingredients for this recipe are:
– flatbread (I used the multigran cause it has much more flavor)
– salad
– turkey
– jalapenos 
– shredded cheese (I used Gouda cheese)
 – aioli (garlic sauce)
 – purple onions
– mexican tacco spice


First of all I cook or fry every ingredient before making the wraps. 
Then I take a new pan and put in some oil and also put in the flatbread. 
Turn on the heat add any ingredient to it you like and top with cheese. Be sure to only use one side so you can fold it in the middle. 
Now brown it until you like and then flip it and brown it on the other side and your are ready to it.
This is such a quick and effortless dish you can create new all over again with a little fantasy of yours. 
Add a small side salad if you like and enjoy.


Hope I could give you some food inpo for the weekend. I am now out and about to the body shop and also shooting a beauty post later so stay tuned guys.


Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Food Friday – homemade cashew creamer(dairy free)….

glass jar similar here / Anthropologie mug / place mat / kitchen towel similar here / our coffeemachine Dolce Gusto (we own the older version) / our favorite coffee

….

Hi guys,

since I am cutting out most of the dairy products from my diet I am always on the search for other options and also for new products. I am a huge coffe lover addict so the most important part for me was to find a replacement for the milk in my coffee. 

I was drinking soy milk for a long time and then I switched to oat milk which I honestly enjoy much more. It tastes a little sweeter and I like it a lot better. Recently I was at the supermarket and looking for another type of milk – you can´t have to many options am I right – and I wanted to try the cashew milk but in fact I wasn´t ready to pay 7 Euro for one litre. This is insane expensive for just adding to your coffee. So I decided to try it myself.

I bought a pack of cashews and drove home.

The recipe is really simple. Step one is to put the needed amount of cashews into a bowl of water and let them soak for about 4 hours. I always take one cup so I have at least a little meassurement.
Afterwards you pour into a strainer to get rid of the water. Put your cashews into your blender, add water, I add two cups but this depends on how thick you like your creamer. 
For flavor you can add a teaspoon of vanilla paste, or a table spoon of maple syrup or even agave syrup to add some sweetness.
Blend everything together and fill it into a glass jar. Whether you are taking one with a screw cap or a swing top use a funnel to avoid the spilling and the mess afterwards. I buy the bottles at our local drug store but they are available almost everywhere.

You can store the cashew creamer in your fridge for about 5 days so I would recommend smaller bottles if you are not a daily coffee drinker.
This might be the easiest recipe I have ever posted. 
Are you guys also love to make things by your own instead of buying it?

Food Friday – carrot cake with white chocolate cream cheese frosting for Easter….

….

Hi guys and happy Friday,
the Easter weekend is finally here and I couldn´t be more excited. Having the whole family over tomorrow. Visiting the other part of the family on Sunday. Maybe we get some rest on Monday. 
Hope the weather is getting a little better (currently rain and 8°) to hide some eggs outside.
Since everyone in our family is loving my carott cake (the only exception are my parents) I made kind of an Easter tradition out of it. Not sure if I already wrote about it but it was the first cake I have made Florian when we started dating and he loved it ever since so this is our very own Easter tradition.

So put on your aprons, get your ingredients and let´s bake. 

Ingredients batter:
 – 4 eggs 
– 200 grams of grounded almonds
– 250 ml rape oil
– 1 tablespoon cinnamon 
– 2 tablespoons baking powder
– 250 grams flour
– 250 grams sugar
– 375 grams carrots grated


– mix eggs, sugar, oil and cinnamon together
– mix in the carrots and the almonds
– mix in the flour and the baking powder
– put the batter into a buttered round pan
– bake for 40 minutes at 180 degrees

Ingredients frosting:
– 250 grams white chocolate melted and cooled
– 2 tablespoons lemon juice 
– 320 grams butter soft
– confectioners sugar sifted 
– 450 grams cream cheese in room temperature


– mix everthing together and let it cool again for about ten minutes until you put it onto your COLD cake
– spread evenly


Decor:
– 12 marzipan carotts

You could also decorate with colorful candy eggs but I choose these little marzipan carrots to top the cake with. 

Are you going to make something on your own for Easter ?

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
