I like this thread but haven't got round to posting until now.

Anyway, home-made Luxemburgerli (there was a recipe in the Daily Telegraph a couple of weeks ago):

Dear Tom1234,

Wow! Like wow! How did you prevent the macarons from sticking to the baking paper? Did you oil it?

(I still buy my Luxemburgelis from Sprungli as I can't make myself do 3-5 flavours, including the cream filling.)

They didn't stick at all. However, you need to bake one tray at a time to allow the bottoms to cook.

It was all a bit of a bet as my wife reckoned I would screw it up. She didn't even mind when I cut up her piping nozzles with a craft - knife :).

The inspirational bit (lazy bit, in reality) was to print out A4 sheets of circles on the PC printer and slide these under the baking sheets. After piping, I removed them.
The alternative would have been to draw 150 circles.

I had a look at the recipe and wondered what '100% cocoa solids chocolate' was all about. Did you have any? Or did you use a substitute?


P.S. Laziness is underrated; it often finds nifty solutions to problems.

I used 70% cocoa solids throughout - that worked fine. I have seen the 100% stuff but only in the U.K.

Although for all these types of recipe - the key is to use good quality chocolate.

I also only made half the quantity given in the recipe which still made quite a few.

Yorkshire puds,
Bangers 'n Mash in onion gravy,
Sucking Pig or Spanferkel (I didn't have an apple to hand!),
full English breakfast (ok, no hash browns, bubble 'n squeek, or mushrooms),
and my last batch of Steak 'n Kidney pies uncooked,
all ingredients bought in Switzerland, and cooked here.

I've made punch quite a few times for parties, but probably best I don't show the pictures of people afterwards

Here's something sweet for today, my first ever Apfelstrudel. Perhaps not the best possible one, but anyway I'm so proud I could conquer my fears and actually attempt it for the first time :p

Well, now I realise I should really take a picture of all I cook and bake but then my boyfriend thinks he may have some extra competition and all that.. :p

But I took some of this tart I did on Saturday. It's actually a recipe in German and hadn't really made anything with quark as a filling, so now was the chance... The camera has now a permanent fixture in the kitchen... just waiting.... :)

Some of the cakes I made whilst still in Australia. I haven't had a reason to make anything here yet.

As you can probably tell going gluten free has been a bit of a hassle :D
