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.

Gingerbread house

I was waiting Christmas from September but when they came deep in the heart I was already waiting for the spring 🙂 It’s good that for Christmas everything was planned and I knew that maybe it’s the first and the last Christmas when I can spend a lot of time doing something for them. So I didn’t hesitate and did almost everything I could. That”s why in this blog before Christmas there was no entries – I didn’t want that the surprise presents were known before getting them.

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 🙂

Buttermilk pancakes

So I get up and go to the kitchen to bake pancakes. Because all kids like pancakes and it’s really easy to bake.

Tortilla

We just love tortillas. I tried this recipe more than once. Every time disappears very quickly, because my kids and me just eat them warm plain. My hubby doesn’t adore pastry, but he enjoys eating tortillas with some filling. So I really recommend to try – it’s simple, quick and better one hundred time than store bought.

Cherry coffee cake with cinnamon

One day I had a strong feeling that I just have to bake something for my co-workers. So I told my hubby that he has to look after our children till they get asleep and went to the kitchen. We tasted this coffee cake the next day. And it tasted very good, so until lunch the coffee cake was gone.
