Fall baking...S'mores Cookies




















Hi everyone and happy weekend!
With the weather getting colder and colder, I thought it was about time to share some autumnal baking with you. But before we get into the cookies, let's talk about this great season and all the beautiful colors it brings with it! I have been loving to go on walks and hear the leaves crunch beneath my rainboots, so I thought I will share some snapshots of fall expressions with you, as well as instructions on how to make the perfect fall cookies, which you can then enjoy while you sip your hot chocolate and sit in front of the fireplace (or the heater, in my case)...

These (perfect fall) cookies are actually S'mores cookies- yes your read that right! All the yummy goodness of a freshly roasted marshmallow, melted chocolate and graham crackers- combined into one delicious cookie, which you don't even need a campfire for...

Because this is a typical American recipe, there are few "tricks" and changes, which In incorporated into the recipe. Firstly, instead of using chocolate chips, which are either hard to find or quite expensive in Germany, I simply chopped up some dark and milk chocolate.

Same goes for the marshmallows... The recipe calls for mini-marshmallows, but instead I just cut these big ones, which I found in a regular German supermarket, into small pieces.

After you have mixed the dough, form little balls and place one in the middle of each of the graham crackers. I think I have mentioned this on the blog before, but again, for all the German peeps: Graham crackers are similar to Leibniz Butterkekse, which is what I am using here. 

Okay, and while these golden up in the oven (about 5 minutes), let's take a little walk...




Right, time to take the cookies out of the oven for the first time. They should look something like this:


Break the chocolate bars into pieces and press one piece onto each of the cookies, then bake for another 5-7 minutes.


And here they are, fresh out of the oven..YUMMY! :-)







Happy fall baking!

Cake balls


Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great start into the week.

Today I have got a quick, easy and fun recipe for you, which will leave you with these cute bite- sized cake balls. Remember when I told you in the last post not to throw away the cut-offs from the cake?
Well, here is why:

Naked berry cake

Hi everyone, firstly...I am sorry that it has been so quiet around here. September (and the beginning of October) was such a busy month for me, with a lot of uni work, work-work and unfortunately also a few sick days. BUT the good news is...things are starting to slow down a bit, the new season is here and I have A LOT of yummy goodies to share with you! So stay tuned for a cake-filled rest of the year.

So let's start with this beautiful, super yummy, naked berry-licious cake! As the northern hemisphere is officially heading into colder weather, my parents and friends in New Zealand are enjoying the first warm days of spring. So, for all of you who are lucky enough to be eating tons of berries soon, while dipping you toes into the ocean, I have got a great cake for you:


VIDEO: HUGE Baking Tools Haul

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great start into the new week.
I have got something super exciting for you today (well, it is exciting to me anyway)- A VIDEO!
Yes, you read that right...not the usual pictures of cake, butter cream or cupcakes but a video of myself- all live and in colour. As I have never attempted to do a video before (or have ever seen anyone do it, or have ever been in one), it has taken me forever to edit...but now it is finally up and running and live for you to watch on YouTube (which took me 2 days alone to try and get it uploaded onto there :-D)

I really hope you enjoy this unwrapping of (what felt like a million) baking tools, supplies and decorations.
Oh, and one last thing before you hit the play button...this might have turned out rather long so go grab a coffee and a snack (chocolate, anyone?!)

Happy watching, everyone! :-)



Upgrading boxed cake mix: Oreo Cupcakes


At the beginning of August, my boyfriend's sister and her husband celebrated their second wedding anniversary. As she absolutely loves Oreos, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to try out the very tempting cake mix I have been eying up on the supermarket shelves. Seriously, what is it about the packaging of those cake mixes that make me want to try every single one of them, although my brain knows that it really just is plain chocolate dough...But once I had everything in my kitchen, I decided to add a few ingredients here and there, to make this cake mix even more exciting...so here come my upgraded Oreo cake mix cupcakes:
