Vanilla, chocolate & strawberry cake

Today I was on a run, the first jog in a while just for the beginning of spring. I really try to exercise as much as I can and I live near one of the most beautiful parks in Zagreb, so the best way to do so is to go on a jog. For my…

Carrot cake

When I told my friends at college that I’ll be bringing carrot cake to class they were apprehensive. Carrot cake isn’t as popular here, and many people never tried it. I must admit I was one of them until a few years ago when I stumbled upon a carrot cake recipe. I was interested how…

Chocolate hazelnut muffins

Hey guys! For me muffins are a starter cake, meaning before you want to try and make a cake, you can practice with muffins. If you get them perfect, you’re ready to make a cake. There are so many combinations of ingredients and recipes you can try out. Chocolate ones are the most common and…

Forest fruit cheesecake

Cheesecake is my favorite dessert, I love the combination of sweet cookies and cream cheese, especially if there are strawberries or any berries in the mix bringing that sour-sweet freshness.

Pinca bread

I know it’s not Easter, but I really love this recipe. In Croatia families usually among all the other food, because we really like to eat, serve Pinca bread.

Poppy seed cake

When sharing this photo on my Instagram account (chefkreso) I was surprised when some of the users asked me if poppy seeds I used to make the cake were legal. I have to say here poppy seeds are omnipresent in cooking, when preparing bread or cakes, even in our traditional cakes our grandmas used to…

Vanilla cherry chocolate cake

Chocolate vanilla cookies

For some time I haven’t posted any recipes and finally I’m back. The story behind this recipe is that my grandma used to make these cookies. As I’ve mentioned before, she is an inspiration for me and there are so many recipes she showed me how to make and I hope I can share as…

Pumpkin cheesecake

A perfect dessert for a cold autumn day. There is nothing better than spending time near the hot oven, in your kitchen surrounded with sweet scent of cakes and cookies still warm, while a white cover hides the streets outside. And as you roll out the dough, or mix the ingredients for the most delicious…

Today I spent the whole day in the kitchen. From making breakfast, cooking lunch and dinner to making this amazing cake. I didn’t mind a bit, it was actually the best time of the day. The heat, the sound of the knife cutting into vegetables, the scent of raspberries and rum cooking in the sauce…
