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!!

[review about my trip to the BahlsenCBA in Munich +] Salted peanuts Caramel Cookies

BACBA_2015_web-120

Last weekend I had the chance to spend an amazing and interesting weekend in beautiful Munich. The reason for this was that last year the german cookie company Bahlsen operated a competition where food bloggers could submit their cookie recipe inspired by some Bahlsen Cookies. The prize was the participation at the first Bahlsen Cookie Academy in Munich where we had the possibility to meet many interesting people and learned a lot.

We spend the weekend at the beautiful Design Offices in Munich surrounded by tons of delicious cookies! During the two days we had the chance to ask all questions about blogging, photographing and learned a lot from the experience of experts like Michael Praetorius, Lea with her blog Hafentelegramm and my favourite food blogger and cook book author Jeanny from zuckerzimtundliebe. It was so much fun to meet the four other blogger girls who also submited and won with their amazing cookie recipes. Of course I will not hold back their lovely blogs which are Fleurcoquet, die feinschmeckerin, bake a wish and Glückseeligkeit!

[…Hurry down the chimney tonight…] ‘Honigkuchen Herz’ alias Gingerbread heart

merryxmas

“…Been an angel all year; Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight…”

Do you remeber these lyrics somewhere? In there a girl sings about all the things she want for christmas including expensive luxuary presents… It’s the famous song ‘ Santa Baby’ from 1953 from Eartha Kitt. Although these things are not on my christmas list I really love the song and its traditional part of our christmas music. When I thought about something to write on my Honigkuchen Herz (translated: gingerbread heart) these song crossed my mind and I thought its a better choice than the typical “Merry x-mas” or “I love you” which you can find on all the christmas markets.

German christmas markets are really nice not only because of the food, also you can buy many memories there. One of these souveniers are the Gingerbread Hearts decorated with white royal icing. But I do not want to spend money on something you can easily make and bake by yourself. This recipe is a simple and basic one to bake gingerbread. The special thing when baking these ones your own: You can decorate them as you whish and of course you can choose your own slogan on the Gingerbread Cookie.

… And by the way these cookies are perfect little presents for friends, family or doing very well as personalized last minute christmas presents!

  3. Preheat oven to 175-200°C and prepare a baking tray with baking paper. Next pour dough on the baking tray (about 1 cm thick). Bake for about 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately cut out your heart (of course you can cut out one big heart like I did or you can cut out more smaller hearts!).
  4. for the icing: Beat egg white with drops of lemon juice until stiff while adding the confectioner’s sugar. Let it rest for 30 minutes until pouring into an icing bag. Now decorate the gingerbread heart as you wish.
  5. Store at a cool place, beste before 3 weeks.
