Red Currant Casserole Cake

Red Currant Casserole Cake

Juicy and tangy red currants in a bed of soft and sweet sponge cake, served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. A simple and quick recipe today, something to make when the guests are already knocking on your door without having previously announced their visit. It happens to us all the time, especially on a lazy Sunday afternoon, when you cannot go shopping for stuff you might need anyway…

Chicken Skewers with Blackberry Sauce

Chicken Skewers with Blackberry Sauce

Tender chicken breast skewers served with an aromatic blackberry sauce. I never used to make skewers, I had a bad experience with some vegetable-tofu skewers once, where the veggies were still uncooked and the tofu tasted bland, and that kind of put me off any kind of skewers for many years. But then, last Christmas, I decided to make some chicken skewers as part of our Turkish inspired Christmas Eve…

Carrot Cupcakes with Blueberry Frosting

Carrot Cupcakes with Blueberry Frosting

Cinnamon spiced carrot cupcakes with a soft and creamy buttercream blueberry frosting. One of my best friends ate one of these cupcakes and the only thing she was able to say between two bites was “Megageil”, which you could approximately translate as mega awesome, mega sexy, mega attractive or, better, a mixture of all these words together. 🙂 I never would have used this word to describe the muffins myself,…

Tiger Prawns with Red Currant Sauce

Tiger Prawns with Red Currant Sauce

A wonderful light meal: tiger prawns with red currant sauce on a bed of rocket. This is one of the best meals I had in the last weeks I think. I decided to make this mostly to be able to use some of the millions of red currants my friends seems to have in her garden this summer and because I wanted to make something a bit unusual. A spicy…

Homemade Crème de Cassis

Homemade Crème de Cassis

Sweet and aromatic Crème de Cassis, a French black currant liquor. A little glass of Cassis to start the “Berry Series” on Where is My Spoon and to celebrate the fact that we are actually on holiday starting today, and while you are reading this, probably on our way to England. I scheduled a couple of posts a week for the time we are gone, just to keep the site…

Cheese Cake Brownies

Cheese Cake Brownies

These might become your favorite brownies: soft, squishy brownies with a cheese cake filling.   Another recipe that will add a few centimeters to your waistline just by reading the ingredient list. But not to worry, this is the last cheese cake for the time being and I promise to try to post at least a couple of skinnier recipes during the next series. 🙂 But in the meantime, I…

White Chocolate Apricot Cheesecake

White Chocolate Apricot Cheesecake

Delightfully sweet and creamy cheesecake made with white chocolate and topped with fresh apricots. I hope you are not bored with me only posting cheesecakes this week! Well, if you like them as much as I do, you wouldn’t, there are so many ways of making a cheesecake, it can never get boring, in my opinion. This recipe is another one of our favorites. Originally made with strawberries, I decided…

Blueberry Lemon Curd Cheesecake

Blueberry Lemon Curd Cheesecake

Creamy and soft, no bake, lemon curd cheesecake marbled with blueberry pie filling. Another favorite cheesecake to start the week. This time the creamiest, softest cheesecake I have ever made, topped with homemade canned blueberry pie filling. A treat for everybody! This might also be the quickest, simplest cheesecake I have ever made. Main reason for that is the use of canned ingredients, ingredients I already had in the fridge/pantry,…

Chocolate Cheesecake

Chocolate Cheesecake

Nigella Lawson’s incredible chocolate cheesecake. This was my first chocolate cheesecake ever. After taking the first bite I was speechless. As I am now! I really have no words to describe how unbelievably good this cake was. I am a big fan of Nigella Lawson, I have almost all her books and there are quite a few recipes I cooked out of them. I love her books not only for…

German Cheesecake

German Cheesecake

Käsekuchen – the German cheesecake: light, creamy and topped with pearled meringue. I think I might have mentioned it before but, anyway, I will say it again. I think Germany makes not only the best bread there is on this planet, but also, when it comes to cake baking, the German bakers are just hard to top. Who hasn’t heard of the famous Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest Gateau) the Zwetschgenkuchen…
