Hello my dears!
Today, I want to show you this lovely tarte I made yesterday! Isn’t it gorgeous? I never belived it might turn out this nice, when I saw a picture from Caketime by Tamaris on Instagram.I looked up the recipe and saw that is was actually quite simply and straight-forward! So, I decided to give it a try.The result really blew me away! The combination of the tarte’s spectacularly beautiful look and its traditional, wonderful flavour is soooo cool! The crust turned out crisp and wonderfully buttery, the filling delicate and not too sweet and the apples – well, I love roses, what can I say! I have many roses in my organic garden in summer, such as this one here……which makes this tarte look and taste like a promise for spring and summer.Go ahead and try this recipe yourselves – it needs a bit of time, but it is totally worth it! The recipe can be found here! And in the following you can see how I made my version:
I hope you’ll like this tarte as much as I did!
I’m back – and I’m bringing a wonderfully chocolately and perfectly delicious tarte along with me. And the best thing is: there are chestnuts in it!Autumn has definitely come (only look at this picture my Dad took out of our window yesterday!) and for me, an autumn without sweet chestnuts is unimaginable – I love both their wonderful flavour and texture. Luckily, Sarah from “Hidden Sweet Treats” managed to transfer both into her lovely little tartes.I love the combination of chocolate, spices (cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla) and chestnuts – they’re in perfect harmony. The tartes’ texture is soft, the sort of “melting-in-your-mouth” everyone must love. And sometimes, you find a small piece of crumbly chestnut in it – this is really as good as it can get.The tartes are very rich and best enjoyed in small bits – for example alongside a hot Cappuccino with Baileys (as I love it).
Check out Sarah’s recipe and her absolutely gorgeous blog right here.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend,
Today I just quickly want to show you this lovely Rhubarb Tarte I made with rhubarb from my organic garden!
I saw a picture of the tarte with this beautiful weaving pattern on the Instagram profile of “Das Knusperstübchen“. Sarah’s blog is soooo wonderful and there are many more recipes I would like to give a try.
This one here worked out perfectly, the only thing I will improve when I bake it again is the thickness of the rhubarb stripes. Mine were a bit too thin, which made them both delicate to handle and a bit crisp in the final result of the cake. Apart from that, I was super happy. As you can see, I served it with a bit of cream and muscovado-sugar on top. The tarte was also a great success with my family, by the way. 😉
Here you can see how I “weaved”. A step-by-step instruction and the recipe of this wonderful tarte can be found right here.
Enjoy your Weekend!
