Creme brulee with a twist


A delicious dessert for the times when you don't wanna bother too much with the baking part. 

Here it is my interpretation of the famous creme brulee (Crème brûlée). 


- 6 eggs

- 1 glass milk 

- 6 spoons of brown sugar 

 - vanilla essence

- coconut flakes, coconut favoured sugar 

Cooking time: 1h 

Start by mixing the eggs with sugar until they double their volume. Add the coconut flakes and milk. 

The trick of baking the creme brulee is to do it in a bain marie style: pot in a pot with water. 

The oven needs to be set at a lower degree, 150 C. Bake for 45 min. 

The result is: 

it is extremely flavoured and has just the right consistency. I served it with ice cream. Enjoy! 


Cinnamon rolls - yummy choco

Who doesn't like a cinnamon roll? why not bake them yourself instead of buying them? this recipe for the beloved cinnamon rolls comes with a twist: chocolate ganache. 

 350-400 gr flour
 2 eggs 
 100 gr butter 
7-8 spoons of sugar 
50 ml milk
10 gr yeast
filling: cinnamon,  jam, coconut flakes, raisins and/or cranberries 
ganache: 1/2 dark chocolate, 2-3 spoons of butter, 1 tea spoon cacao, milk

For the dough: yeast mixed with warm milk, flour, sugar, eggs, butter and a pinch of salt. Knead for 10 min until the dough does not require more flour, then leave the dough in warm place until it doubles the volume. 

When the dough is ready, then you need to use the roller pin to flatten it, until it is about 1cm thick. 
Cover the dough with butter, then cinnamon, sugar. Or with jam and dried fruits. 

Then roll the dough and cut it in equal parts, either with a knife or with a thread. 
Lay the rolls one by one in a baking tray which was previously prepared with butter. 
Put the tray in oven and leave it on a very low setting of heat for the rolls to raise again. 

Bake for 15 min at 180 degrees C. 

For the ganache, you need the ingredients listed above. It is made in the bain-marie method so the chocolate does not stick. Low heating, mixing till the consistence is like a sauce. 
Then pour it on the rolls when they are not so hot anymore - about 10 min after you take them out from oven. 

They look like this and they taste fantastic! Enjoy! 


Autumn joy: Plum cake

Hello :) 

Autumn is just an amazing season, with the richness of goodies we can find and  the mild days to bask in the sun. 

So for those quiet moments when you just crave for something sweet here is a quick and easy recipe for plum cake: 


5-6 plums 

5 eggs

100 gr (1 cup) of flour 

10 spoons sugar 

vanilla sugar or essence 

4 spoons oil (sunflower) 

1 tablespoon of baking powder 

Baking time: 25-30min; Prep time: 15 min

Wash and cut the plums into small piece and then cover them with 2-3 spoons of sugar. 

Eggs are whisked with the rest of sugar until they triple the volume. Then you can slowly add the flour and incorporate it into the eggs mix. Now it is the time to add the oil and the baking powder too. 

On the tray for baking, lay a thing layer of oil and then flour. Add a first row of fruits and then the batter. Add the rest of fruits and the rest of batter and it's ready to go into the oven.

The oven needs to be preheated at 200 degrees C. 

I baked it for 25-30 min at 200 degrees C and then just checked it with a toothpick.  

The result is amazing: a soft and extremely flavoured cake, the nice aroma filled the whole house.
