Cherry cake


Author: Aušra

Date:

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.

Old times white bread

This bread was baked in a lot of blogs and forums, but I could photograph it just now, although I baked it already five times. My hands and eyes were not successfull 🙂 One time I overrised it, next time had to use rye flour, another next time some othe my mistakes. But despite that this bread is really good, like in old times. Just I would prefere to use milk instead water – it changes bread texture, it becomes more mild.

Ratatouilletarte or mini pies with vegetables

These mini pies are very delicious and warm, and cold. I thought I will miss meat, but I didn’t. I thought to bring them to work for lunch, but I couldn’t because we ate them all for breakfast…

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tsp. baking powder 50 g melted butter 1/2 cup milk 200 g pumpkin puree 2 large eggs 100 ml sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 1/2 tsp. salt

Pumpkin muffins

In most bakings with pumpkin are used ginger, cinnamon, cloves. But my family doesn’t admire them. So I was looking for something simple but still good to our tooth. And when I found this muffins, I stopped searching. We all liked them. My kids ate them. And now I bake more and some put in a freezer for quick snack for my children before sleep.

Tender apple cake

I still have apples and they are shouting that I have to make something from them before I have to throw them away. I chose this recipe because I had some vanilla sauce and in the recipe it was suggested to eat it with ice creams. Children like the cake even without the sauce.

Potato bread

At last I found bread that my hubby really enjoyed eating it 🙂 Yeah… For long time I baked only bread without the crust. But now I have big hopes that we will make a break with it and start baking this potato bread. By the way, the taste of this bread is slightly similar to “švilpikai” 🙂
