Muffins with apples, cinnamon and sour cherries

These muffins are the only and best recipe you will ever need. Perhaps you read such sentence rather often, but since I’ve made about 50 of these muffins so far and each one is eaten, I think I have solid evidence. I still have apples in stock and are so juicy that I don’t want them to perish, so I am using them in all possible ways. I added sour cherries because this note of acidity perfectly suits. This quantity is for 24 muffins because you eat two in 2 minutes. Preparation time: 45 minutes Ingredients: – 300g flour –...

Gallette with apples

Here is Chakula again with another recipe with apples. Indeed, this year apple season is rich. And cakes should be made frequently, so let’s get to it. As for the gallettes, I look at photos od this dessert on Instagram all summer, filled with seasonal fruit, so I needed to follow this trend.  I added nectarines with the apples, and you can add whatever seasonal fruit you wish. This is another recipe with a step by step explanation and photos. Preparation time: 45 minutes Ingredients: – 150 g flour – 30 g chopped walnuts – 1 teaspoon of cinnamon –...

Modern apple cake

Apples are in season in September, so apple cakes are inevitable. Somehow traditionally in our family these cakes are made of finely grated apples and with classic biscuit base. I put this cake into a bundt cake mold and I chopped apples into cubes. Cinnamon is abundant, because what kind of apple cake would it be without cinnamon. Since you love step by step explanations, I’ve photographed the entire process. Preparation time: 90 minutes Ingredients: –  8 apples – 1 tablespoon of cinnamon – 3 tablespoons of sugar – 360 g flour – 1 tablespoon of baking powder – 1...

Pumpkin sweet bites

Pumpkins are in season. There are all kinds which you can, depending on what you plan to make. I bought a 3.5 kg pumpkin, sweet for cakes. For pumpkin cakes the base is pumpkin puree. Where I live there is no canned puree to buy, and maybe it’s better ( certainly it is healthier). Then you buy a pumpkin and make puree. And then this great cake. Preparation time: 45 minutes Ingredients: Base – 300 g digestive biscuits – 150 g butter – 2 teaspoons vanilla extract Pumpkin filling – 2 eggs – 200 g brown sugar – 100 ml...

Surprise cake

I honestly was in a dilemma on how to call this cake. And then I realized that its outward appearance is misleading, because pineapples and figs are there for decoration only, and because they are super-matching with the rest of the cake. So the choice fell to this title. What’s also interesting is that there is no sugar in the biscuit, and in the cheese cream you can omit the sugar or put it to taste. This is another recipe with step-by-step explanations and photos of course. Preparation time: 45 minutes Ingredients: Base – 150 ml oil – 100 ml...
