  • Snickers Cake

    Snickers Cake

    Makes one 18cm cake. Regardless of what it looks like, this cake is not overly sweet. On the contrary, the bittersweet chocolate ganache combined with an almost savory peanut butter filling balances the sweetness of both fudgy chocolate cake and caramel filling, which makes the cake really enjoyable. I recommend that you bake the cake […]

  • Red Wine Chocolate Truffles

    Red Wine Chocolate Truffles

    Makes about 40 truffles. If you love chocolate and wine, these truffles are just the right dessert for you. In these truffles, chocolate is the dominant flavor, but you can taste the lovely fruitiness of the wine as the dark chocolate starts melting on your tongue. The addition of red wine adds a bit of […]

  • Raspberry Cake

    Raspberry Cake

    Makes one 18cm cake. This raspberry cake is worthy of any special occasion and the pink ombre frosting makes it look delicate and elegant. The cake layers are made with raspberry jam, which is why they’re incredibly moist and have a lovely raspberry flavor. You could add red food coloring to the cake batter to […]

  • Strawberry Balsamic Tart

    Strawberry Balsamic Tart

    Makes one 26cm tart. This simple and straightforward tart is perfect for warm spring or summer days. Strawberries and balsamic are epic together, and the addition of fresh basil leaves takes this tart a step further. Instead of strawberries, you could use raspberries, but I would omit the basil in that case. For the shortcrust […]

  • Ricotta Cheesecake with Balsamic Strawberries

    Ricotta Cheesecake with Balsamic Strawberries

    Makes one 24cm cheesecake. This is probably the fluffiest cheesecake you’ll ever make. Because the eggs are separated and the egg whites are whipped separately and then gently incorporated in the cheesecake batter, the cake is incredibly light and airy. This recipe also uses ricotta cheese, which is a bit lighter and tangier than cream […]

  • Chocolate Orange Ruffle Cake

    Chocolate Orange Ruffle Cake

    Makes one 24cm Cake. Chocolate and orange are epic together, and this cake transports the combination to a whole new level. What stands out in this recipe is the moist chocolate cake. I used Martha Stewart’s recipe and it’s the best I’ve tried so far. I recommend that you bake the cake layers the night […]

No chilling time needed. You […]
