raspberry-marzipan coffee cake

by Eva Felis on July 7, 2014

This cake is long gone, its life span had been cut short – literally cut in pieces – and is countable in hours, certainly not days. The minute I moved it from the oven to a rack to cool, I almost attacked it with a knife. I could hardly pull myself together to wait long Weiterlesen

munavalgekook – egg white cake with brown butter

by Eva Felis on April 27, 2014

I don’t know about you, but beside April being the month for the first sunburn on my nose and getting soaked to the skin during one of those rain showers, it’s also the time I start making ice cream, like it’s out of style next month. Egg whites are usually a by-product, which I don’t Weiterlesen

chai chocolate banana bread

by Eva Felis on April 7, 2014

The mother of all questions, at least if it comes to banana bread, is for sure: Do we really need another banana bread recipe? For the last couple of days, knowing I am working on one of those “another” recipes, I paid more attention to blog posts and articles related to this topic – take Weiterlesen

 applesauce tiramisu
The majority of people who come into our life, don’t stay. They hang around for months or even years, until we move on or they do. They are former classmates, neighbors and coworkers.

orange marzipan cake

by Eva Felis on February 18, 2014

I hate throwing away food. I am aware of the harsh intensity of this word hate, which I am just throwing around and at you. However it is not an angry hate, I would describe it as a disgusting hate, whereas disgusting on it’s own wouldn’t kick it. Around here leftover food will be revived Weiterlesen

a birthday cake like sunshine on snowy hills

by Eva Felis on December 28, 2013

I am a late summer birthday girl and can’t actually imagine, how unfair or complicated it is to having a birthday just around Christmas. I heard complains like: it’s hard to celebrate because friends and family are already busy with all this holiday stuff and a party is not as appreciated as in any other Weiterlesen

vanilla kipferl

by Eva Felis on December 10, 2013

One of Germany’s favorite Christmas cookie is actually of Austrian origin, Vienna to be precise. I didn’t know that or I did and forgot about that and at the end, it doesn’t matter at all. What matters, and I might totally disagree at this point with most of Germany’s population, is that they are mainly Weiterlesen

christmas skillet cookie

by Eva Felis on December 2, 2013

I had been growing up in Germany and obviously Thanksgiving had never been much of a big deal. Why? Someone actually asked me that… Well no pilgrims, no Indians, no Thanksgiving Day, that’s basically the explanation for the lack of it in an otherwise very holiday friendly German calendar. Now it’s one of my favorite Weiterlesen

white chocolate macchiato cakelettes with coconut flakes

by Eva Felis on November 13, 2013

 
Tastewise there is a lot going on with this cakelettes. They are little bundles of flavor, no doubt about that. Nevertheless I have to admit, I went somehow overboard with this title: white chocolate macchiato cakelettes with coconut flakes.  What you read is what you get. Although all this different ingredients come together very well, Weiterlesen

pumpkin spice muffins

by Eva Felis on October 22, 2013

I am sitting at my desk and it doesn’t actually matter if I look to my right or left, there are piles of papers and notebooks everywhere. The stacks continue behind me on my bookshelf and even on the floor.  All these pages are about food, they contain ideas, tips and tricks, but mostly recipes. Weiterlesen
