March and April are the time of cherry blossoms, hanami and hanami picnics in Japan, and Easter in Germany, where everything revolves around
This bread can be made in less than an hour. No sourdough is needed for this and the dough can be formed and baked as is without resting.
This bread is very Danish. You can buy it anywhere in Denmark. But you can also find this delicious bread in supermarkets and bakeries in Northern Germany.
I always ate this bread on family trips to Denmark, so I have many childhood memories of this bread. My aunt was Danish and we always had this bread for breakfast and dinner or as a side dish when we visited her.
Dough containing rye flour or whole wheat flour is heavier than dough made with strong flour.
Therefore, it is necessary to use a strong sourdough to make a fluffy bread. The word “Sauer” in the word “Sauerteig” means “sour”. Sourdough contains a lot of yeast and lactic acid bacteria. This lactobacillus is what gives rye bread its characteristic sour taste and flavor.
This bread has a slightly mediterranean flavor, similar to ciabatta. It is delicious toasted with butter or herb butter and served with sour cream, smoked salmon, feta cheese and tomatoes. It is also good with red wine or as a side dish with a salad. It is the perfect bread for summer. Thanks to the sourdough, it stays fresh and juicy much longer than normal white bread.
This bread is very special. It is baked with sourdough, but it is not sour. Even though it is made with chocolate, the dough is made with dark chocolate, so the sweetness is just a little bit more subtle and more for adults. The combination of chocolate cream, honey, and fruity jam with butter, cream cheese, and sour cream is perfect. For an elegant adult breakfast, spread this bread with butter and espresso marzipan cream and serve with hot coffee.
This cream has an adult sweetness that goes very well with, for example, poppy seed white bread or chocolate bread recipes, but it is also very good on croissants, for example. You can also give this cream as a gift. It takes only a few minutes to make and is very quick and easy.
This fruity spread is perfect for summer. If you like the taste of dried apricots, fruity oranges and almonds, you will love this cream. It can be eaten like a jam, for example, with white bread, chocolate bread or croissants.
In Germany, children and adults alike love to eat freshly baked hot waffles as an afternoon snack. You can either eat them at home homemade or in a café. You can eat them very simple with icing sugar, for example, or with hot cherries, fresh whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream.
This recipe is a basic recipe. You can easily create many variations by changing the dough and toppings.
My kids love these waffles. They smell of cinnamon, espresso, and dark chocolate. These waffles are super crispy and go perfectly with the hot cherries.
Hot cherries are a classic topping that is very widely used in German desserts. Hot cherries are delicious served cold in the summer or hot in the winter with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. The sauce goes well with a variety of desserts, including rice pudding, pancakes, cheesecake, brownies, and plain yogurt.
This cake is one of the most popular German summer cakes. It is made with fluffy sponge cake, creamy vanilla pudding, and lots of berries and fruit. It is baked mainly during the berry season, with the most popular being strawberries. Unlike in Japan, the strawberry season starts in May in Germany, which is why I would like to share with you this delicious cake on this menu.
However, this cake can be easily arranged and enjoyed all year round with, for example, grapes, peaches, or mangos. In addition, the sponge cake can be frozen, so you can always have a fresh cake ready in no time.
In Germany, cakes are usually baked in very large molds (26-28 cm), but I have developed a recipe for mini tarts especially for this class. In this way, you can create new designs and flavors by adding your favorite fruit to each cake and make your own personalized mini cakes for all your friends and family.
In Germany, the white asparagus season begins at the end of April. Germans love white asparagus and eagerly await it all year round. They like to eat it as a soup or simply with potatoes, ham and sauce.
Asparagus soup is a very creamy special soup that is very easy to make yourself. It is perfect if you have leftovers from another asparagus meal, such as leftover sauce or leftover asparagus. Asparagus soup is very popular as a spring and summer appetizer or as a light lunch. Fresh white asparagus is the classic choice for asparagus soup, but my recipe also offers a quick and easy way to make it year-round, using frozen or jarred asparagus.
This salad is perfect for early summer. Crisp asparagus and juicy sour strawberries are drizzled with a sweet dressing. Served with toasted poppy seed bread or tomato bread, it is perfect for lunch or dinner on a warm day.
But it’s not just the taste that impresses. The colors are so beautiful that they make the salad look like a luxury dish. I think this recipe goes very well not only for tea time, but also for candlelight dinners.
This recipe is a great alternative to the standard, simple preparation of asparagus.
Quiche is famous for its broccoli quiche and quiche lorine, but there is also a very tasty asparagus quiche. Crispy quiche dough, plenty of creamy white asparagus, and a tangy cheese sauce make this a very tasty dish. It can be served hot or cold. Take it on a picnic, at tea time, or pack it as a lunch box. This quiche can also be frozen, which means you can enjoy it fresh at any time.
Next to asparagus soup, this is the most popular asparagus dish in Germany. Many Germans eat this dish at least once a week during the asparagus season. It is served with pure boiled white asparagus, potatoes, smoked ham, and hollandaise sauce. Instead of sauce, melted butter, salt and parsley are often served.
This dish allows the pure, sweet, creamy flavor of white asparagus to be fully enjoyed.
This is a very unique and little-known asparagus recipe. Crispy, creamy asparagus pan cakes made with potatoes, green and white asparagus, served with delicious smoked salmon, salad and a summery orange dressing. It’s a simple but special recipe.
Who doesn’t know Starbucks? Who doesn’t like a frappe?
Next to the Matcha Frappe, the Mocha Frappe is one of the most popular and well-known Frappes. Unfortunately, we don’t always have the time or opportunity to go to Starbucks for a frappe. And frappes are not cheap.
I’ ve developed a recipe that makes it easy, fast, and inexpensive to make a Starbucks Mocha Frappe at home.
