Vanilla Fruit Dessert Cups

Dessert cups with fruit are popular summer dessert. Vanilla Fruit Dessert Cups are made of light egg white sponge, vanilla cream, sweet cream, and various fresh fruits: bananas, kiwi, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries … I like dessert cups because the portions are already decided, and I can’t take just another half. Besides, they look so pretty, and serving is much easier since you don’t have to cut the cake – bonus points for everyone who always struggle with picking the right knife and cutting the fruit cake with fruit falling out of the cake. I prepared the dessert cups in 200 […]

Nutella Bunnies

Speculoos Tiramisu

A special holiday dessert! A »something different« tiramisu, in a way of using speculoos biscuits instead of ladyfingers. For those of you who want to know which cookies are those: they are traditional cookies in Netherlands and Belgium. Speculoos biscuits are caramel flavoured cookies with cinnamon and other spices. You can buy them almost everywhere now, especially in this Christmas season. I can hardly imagine a more Christmassy flavoured cookie, so I decided to combine these cookies with a creamy tiramisu. You can prepare your tiramisu in a glass baking tray, where you will get 8 smaller servings or 6 […]

Apple Crumble Strudel

Apple strudel – a typical fall dessert. But I also love a nice apple crumble cake. So I got the idea to combine both desserts. The procedure is very simple, especially if you buy filo pastry for strudel. Sometimes I do that because I’m a little lazy or I just can’t make the same pastry my grandma does. With bought pastry sheets, the procedure takes about 45 minutes, and the baking time is 30 minutes.   Ingredients (for 16 pieces – 4 strudels) 4 sheets of filo pastry 30 g butter 8 apples 150 g flour 150 g sugar 90 […]
