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.

Curd doughnuts

Don’t know why but every day I think about doughnuts 🙂 So then I found some curd in the fridge I knew what to do with it. With the help of Google I found Sonatina doughnuts with curd. They were very tasty. We ate them all in one time 🙂

Poppy seed zucchini muffins

If you still have zucchini, you should bake these muffins. They are moist as all baking with zucchini, but poppy seed gives some new flavour.

Pizza dough with baking powders

This pizza dough is for those who always don’t have time to prepare pizza dough with yeast. It helped me several times, when I suddenly understood that I want pizza for Friday night and there was no pizza dough with yeast frozen in a freezer. My family liked it also and I’m very happy about that 🙂

Strawberry and rhubarb cake

It’s very bad when you don’t write the recipe in the blog after you eat the cake 🙂 Then you have to look for the recipe for a few days. I baked this cake when we were going to the village and strawberries were still in the season. It had to be all strawberry, but I had no time so I use rhubarbs as they were near me. Rhubarb and strawberry combination isn’t new – it fits perfectly. And the texture of the cake is more like sponge than a teacake. I liked it very much.
