7 Cakes recipes with Honey, Pork loin, Spinach, Sweet mustard, and Vanilla sugar

Chunky chocolate walnut pie

I must admit that there's this specific cake at McDonald's that I love — chunky chocolate pecan pie, and I decided to recreate it as closely as possible. It turned out pretty well, and you can enjoy it too! You can use leftover cake and off-the-shelf cookies to make the bottom crispy and creamy layer, so it doesn't require too much of work and ingredients.

Quick cream pie

Somehow I managed to hide mini chocolate muffins in my oven over the weekend and now I'm left with lots of chocolate cake crumbs. I decided to make a quick, and easy dessert, which doesn't look luxurious, but is really tasty, fast and easy to prepare in almost no time. Try on your own, you can use any kind of sweet baked cookies, cakes, etc., that crumbles easily.

German Zimtsterne (cinnamon almond cookies)

I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.

German vanilla Kipferl (cornetti)

One thing that I like about living in Germany is that during the Christmas time, locals cook and bake many delicious local dishes — one of them is Vanille-Kipferl, also known in other countries as Italian cornetti, French crossaints, or Polish rogaliki. But however you call them, they are basically very crispy cookies covered with vanilla sugar. And for this simplicity I absolutely love them :-)

Plain muffins

Nothing says "hello autumn" like a batch of fresh muffins or cupcakes! :-) With this simple recipe, you gonna whip them up in no time, and they will be a perfect base for more fancy muffins with fruit (I love muffins with dried plum bits), chocolate chip muffins, caramel-stuffed ones or double-or-triple-chocolate ;-) Or savory ones: paprika, tomato, herbs, sunflower seeds, etc. It all starts with this recipe.
