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...

In September, in the season are: pumpkin, chestnuts, figs and apples. Butternut pumpkin is certainly one of the most popular autumn foods for preparing both salty and sweet dishes. You can use it in soups, pasta, risotto, but also in delicious cakes....

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...

Gastro review: Noovi Sarajevo

In the past week, Sarajevo has been blooming in the aura of Sarajevo Film Festival. We watched a lot of movies, socialized and of course ate. Sarajevo at the time of the Festival hosts a multitude of tourists. Regardless of whether my friends visit me during the SFF or during the rest of the year, everyone has already learned that we start the tour in my other house Noovi. For years, in Noovi, I’ve been eating what they offer on the board, not the menu. On arrival, they bring me my prosecco, and so I start every good story....
