Raspberry, poppy seed & cream cheese tart

A week ago I shared a recipe that uses an interesting combination of ingredients like apricot, poppy seed and cream cheese. This is a version of that tart, but with raspberries. I made it a couple of days ago when my friends came over, the same ones who tried the first one and liked it…

Pineapple, strawberry, banana & white chocolate cake

Well I’ve got a treat for all of you today! Here in Zagreb the wind’s been blowing like crazy, and I decided to spend my day in the kitchen, baking a cake of course. Pineapples and strawberries have always been one of my favourite combinations, there’s a small juice bar where they make an amazing…

Nutella covered Blueberry & Milka pancake muffins

What is better than pancakes? – Pancake muffins! I love preparing cupcakes and muffins because they’re smaller versions of cakes and pies that I would usually make, and pretty easy to share with friends and family. At least once a week I prepare a different batch of cupcakes, and bring them with me to pubs…

Raspberry puffs

When someone asks me to make them the easiest dessert there is, this recipe probably always comes to mind. Except the process and the whole preparation of the puff pastry, there si actually nothing complicated about making this simple, yet delicious and scrumptious treat that you can enjoy with friends on the porch or back…

Mille crepe blueberry cake

Perhaps nobody in my family likes baking cakes as much as I do, but they sure like eating them. I had a family dinner yesterday, it was actually a whole day of spending time with my family, especially with my brother’s kids. I’m mentioning them since they were disappointed I didn’t prepare a cake for…

Cherry & poppy seed strudel

Every day I get hundreds of requests to make cakes, pies, and any kind of desserts. Usually the people asking are members of my family, or friends. As I’m still a student and I have a job at the moment, there is not as much free time, as I would love, to make cakes and…

Apple cheese tart

I love making pastries, and desserts, and cakes. Usually I’m the one who gets the last piece of the pie, but I enjoy making it, just for the smiling faces around me who really love what I make. For a few weeks now I couldn’t find time to make a proper dessert because of work,…

Chocolate chip cookies

For the past few days I was racking my brain thinking of what to buy for a friend of mine for her birthday. First I wanted to surprise her with a shopping coupon in her favourite store but that didn’t feel as original or personal as I wanted it to be. Then I wanted to…

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…

Chocolate vanilla walnut cake

Baking a delicious cake is all about coming up with a perfect combination of flavors. And there are so many of them. Combinations like chocolate and strawberries, chocolate and vanilla are all classics and there is nothing better than making a classic even more better. Usually adding walnuts or hazelnuts will do the trick because…

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…

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…
