There are some exciting news to announce! Maybe some of you have already seen the announcement on my Instagram account. Do you remember my trip to the Bahlsen CBA in Munich, where I spent an amazing weekend and had the opportunity to meet other awesome bloggers, experts and of course the lovely girls from Bahlsen? Now the next sweet tooth project is following!

This year Bahlsen started their big Roadshow “Sweet on Streets” through Germany to treat you with heavenly variations of different cookies and toppings, new recipes and sweet trends! The stops with the mobile Bahlsen show kitchen will be at different festivals throughout 7 cities in Germany! For more information visit the sweet on streets website.

At the stops you have the opportunity to taste the latest baking trends which just came over from Brooklyn (for some more information just visit the lovely blogs from zuckerzimtundliebe and bake a wish). We are going to share with you some treats, which are inspired by the latest modern baking trends coming from Brooklyn. That means basic recipes get some twists and are refined by using new and delicious ingredients such as marshmallows, sea salt, poppy seed… Sounds good, right?

Now the exciting news: I’m part in it! From the 19. to 21. June you can visit me in the show kitchen at the Bahlsen Cube at the biggest festival in Northern Germany, the Kieler Woche!! I will also take over the Bahlsen Instagram to give you some live updates!!

[chocolate bomb for rainy and snowy study days] chocolate lava cake

DSC_1098

What is the best thing about exam periods and hours of studying?

Of course the STUDY SNACKS. Due to the fact that I am right in the middle of my exam period I try to treat myself with delicious sweet snacks between hours of Food economics, Food law and molecular nutrition. This chocolate bomb is the perfect culinary motivation to gain energy for the next study session . I call it chocolate bomb because it contains a lot of chocolate, even for all hardcore chocolate lovers out there (and if this is not enough chocolate for you, then you have to combine this sweety with chocolate sauce, chocolate sprinkles and chocolate ice cream..)

DSC_1088

But for me, this chocolate bomb with it’s moist and rich chocolate cake and the creamy, tender and liquid chocolate center was exactely what I needed after studying the whole morning. So, now It’s time for your break, to taste the chocolate explosion in your mouth! The clue in this recipe is the quality of the chocolate (the better the chocolate, the better the cake!). I took my favourite brand with 70% cacao (if you like it sweeter then just take your favourite milk chocolate with 45-55 % cacao).

So, today forget about counting calories and just enjoy!

[sweet semifreddo Lasagne] Caramel Apple cookie crumble Lasagne

DSC_0770

Well, with this recipe it is official autumn for me!  Time for apples, nuts, pumkins, Halloween, long movie nights, rainy walks outside and cold weather. I am not a big fan of this dark and rainy time of the year, therefore I wanted to make the start of this season more easy. And is there anything better than an easy dessert together with a hot tea while sitting on your cozy sofa and watch the rain outside?

I have to admit that i love italian food, of course the typical dishes as pizza, pasta and Lasagne, but also the sweet things as ice cream, Tiramisu or Cantuccini. Inspired by italian influences I thought about a dessert which is not that typical in Italy: A sweet Lasagne! The clue of this recipe is that it is based on different layers of apples, cookies, caramel and a smooth creamcheese cream.

Holidays for your soul!
