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…

Blueberry & white chocolate cake

I absolutely love baking cakes, and winter holiday time is just the time to prepare some. When it’s cold outside, and I can’t see the street from the windows in my room because they’re covered in snow, that’s when I just want to lock myself up in the kitchen and bake cakes the whole day….

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.

Crepes with Ricotta & orange juice

Chocolate almond cookies

Chocolate chestnut cake

Today a friend of mine is celebrating her birthday. As every year I’m planning on making her a cake as a surprise, or some kind of a┬ádessert like cupcakes, but has to be something with chocolate. As she will be reading this post, I have to say I still don’t have an idea what I’m…

Yogurt pie

If you’re looking for a simple, yet delicious dessert, your search is over! Yogurt pie is one of my favourite simple desserts, just because it’s so easy to make and still as tasty. Don’t know if you know, but it is believed that yogurt and similar fermented milk products were discovered by accident due to…

Raspberry puffs

When someone asks me to make them the easiest dessert there is, this recipe probably always comes to mind.
