Quick Christmas fruit cake

This one was a little bit too sweet for me, but with unsweetened coffee it was great. You can substitute dried fruits with you favourites. For example I substituted some prunes with dried apricots and dates, also some of raisins substituted with dried cranberries. It’s really your choice and use all your dried fruit reserves.

Skinny apple coffee-cake

When I was a child, my mom used to bake very similar cake to this one, she never added any fats to it. But this cake is more beautiful to me because it has apple layer. It’s very quick and simple, and author says it’s skinny – so why not to give it a try 🙂 Anyway, I think that there is no bad food, it’s all in quantities that we eat 🙂

Yoghurt cake with currant cream

Maybe this is the last recipe with currants this year. This time with white currants, because I just love them. I decided to use them in this cake, although you can use black or red currants. First time I did everything by the recipe – and currant seeds were annoying. Second time boiled currants I strained through the mesh – but then cream wasn’t so refreshing. So the next time I will go the easy way and leave seeds 🙂

Black currant pie

This year I try to make something new out of currant because last year I had no time for them. And the first try – a pie with black currants. I took it to my work and my colleagues enjoyed it a lot. So after a few days I baked it again to my hubby because I knew he will love it too. I wasn’t wrong 🙂 So believe me – this pie with a creamy black currant cream is really worth your time!

Double layer cake with dough balls

This cake really deserves your attention! It’s looks very beautifully, but it is prepared from really simple products that you maybe already have in your fridge. My kids saw how I’m working with these photos and asked to bake this cake again. I think it’s the best evaluation 🙂

Gluten-free poppy seed cake with lemon glaze

For those, who still have left poppy seeds from Christmas. For those, who is seeking gluten-free cake. For those, who adore poppy seeds and lemon combination (it’s really worth trying!). This cake is really delicious, despite it contains only a few ingredients. I used 17cm diameter form, but original suggested to use 19cm diameter form. You should decide what size you will choose by yourself 🙂

Chocolate cake with apples

This recipe waited for a year because last year somehow I was late – apples were gone, and I didn’t want to buy them. So this year this is my first (and the only) apple cake. And it was a really good cake! I baked only half of the recipe, but I got only one slice – my kids ate almost half of it at once. I could treat my parents only with the small slices… The cake is very moist and in reality it looks better than in the book. And I won’t judge my photos 🙂

Creamy rhubarb pie

This pie I caked in the beginning of this summer, but still in supermarket I saw rhubarbs, so maybe you still have some at home too. This pie is not very sweet. Next time I think I’ll double sugar in the filling or use less rhubarbs. But anyway, when this pie was cold kids and adults enjoyed it a lot!

Swirl Pumpkin Brownies

Yes, I still have pumpkin puree 🙂 And this time it’s not so healthy but very chocolate brownie. It’s really easy, just I baked 10 minutes more. The next time, I will bake only 5 minutes more. And also, when I baked it second time I used less sugar, and my big girl tasted that. My hubby also agreed that brownie second time was not so good as the first time. So the third time I won’t change anything – these proportions are really perfect!

Swirled pumpkin cream cheese cake

It looks like simple ordinary pumpkin cake, but special taste gives cream cheese. It takes cake to another level 🙂

Cherry cake

Before baking this case, I couldn’t decide – it’s a cake or a pie. But when I baked it no questions were left – it’s really a cake and the good one. Crispy top, tender egg while layer and sour cherries makes very good combination. But if you are afraid of sour cherries, you can use preserved cherries. The next time egg white layer I will make smaller or will use bigger cake form (now I used 24cm). I know, the photos are horrible, but I had to do some photos in a rush, because I try to bake less sweets and the next time this cake will be baked after long time.

Cottage cheese cake with apples

For me cottage cheese and apples looked like a strange duet, but something kept pushing me to try this recipe. And the cake is juicy and refreshing but also not very sweet. It’s really good. 🙂
