It’s rhubarb season over here! Do you love how zippy and tangy rhubarb is as much as I do?! It just tastes SO good mixed with sweeter things like ice cream or a sugary crumb topping. The other week, I shared my favourite strawberry rhubarb pie recipe, and today I wanted to share with you my go-to rhubarb cake recipe: this delicious rhubarb crumb cake! If you’re of German heritage like I am, you might also call it rhubarb streuselkuchen.Continue reading
Not only is Streuselkuchen a fun word to say, but it’s one of my favourite German treats! This crumb cake brings back so many wonderful memories for me. My mom, one of my aunts, or my Grandma would always bring it to all of our extended family gatherings – especially around Christmas time. This is a coffee cake with a sweet yeast dough base and a crispy, sweet crumb topping. It’s great as a brunch dish, or with coffee after supper. Let me show you how to make German Crumb Cake AKA Streuselkuchen!Continue reading
I finally had a day last week to bake, and it was wonderful. I’ve missed baking. I find it so relaxing!
(Note: This recipe & blog post was originally published in November of 2013 and I’ve now updated it with new photos! So, no, I’m not currently pregnant but I AM craving cake.)
It’s slightly dangerous, though. I’m a huge fan of eating baked goods too. This marble bundt cake I made last week only lasted a couple of days. I’ll say that’s due to my hungry hubby and not my pregnant, cake-loving self. Yes. That’s it.Continue reading
This German recipe for Honey Cakes (or “honigkuchen”) is from my Great Auntie Betty and it’s a cake traditionally made at Christmas time. I find the taste and texture of this cake very unique, and incredibly festive (read: spicy and flavourful)! Continue reading
If you come from a German background like I do, you’ll know that baking is very high on the priority list.
I love my German heritage. I think it’s part of why I like to make things with my hands so much – whether they be crafts or food.
Fall makes me re-catch the baking bug, so I thought I’d blog my way through my family’s classic German baking recipes. A warning: you’ll be seeing a lot of cakes and cookies here in the near future made with good ol’ fashioned butter, sugar and flour! I find German baking recipes very simple and hearty. Anyone can make (and eat) these goodies!
