Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

First time made red velvet cake (but without the red dye) and iced with cooked butter cream flavoured with lemon oil and lemon juice. Recipe here: http://www.food.com/recipe/red-velvet-cake-19884

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Isn't red velvet cake without the colouring a chocolate cake?

It only contains two tablespoons of cocoa powder but has buttermilk and a spoon of vinegar. I didn't see the point of adding so much red colouring as it wouldn't change the taste of the cake. The texture is fluffy and soft if you don't over-bake it (reduce the given baking time by 5 minutes and a bit more if you're doing cupcakes).

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

i may have to try a GF one and abstain from the colouring too

All that red colouring has scared me away from red velvet cakes... they bring back nightmarish red cordial fueled hyperactivity memories from my childhood

Cervelas in tomato sauce served with polenta. D
Do you just use straight tomato sauce, or is seasoning added? (Never heard of Cervelas in sauce until now, and I'm interested in trying it.)

it's concentrated tomatoes in water. salt, pepper and garlic (if you like garlic...)

That's the beauty of the Cervelas, you can eat it raw or cooked....
it's nice also in salads (like a salad of rices)

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Yesterday was Butterzopf Day



In total, I baked 11 loaves yesterday (14 if you count the baby-size ones). They were gone in 5 minutes! I have to wake up earlier next month so I can make a couple more.

...and pumpkin waffles.

I see a lot of pumpkin in my near future. Still have six cups left from the last pumpkins I bought. Two cups for pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving. Will "have" to find more things to do with the other four cups. Life's rough.

1. Mini-pavlovas with raspberries (actually a stack of them on this picture)
2. Waffles
3. Zopf (still working on plaiting)

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Has anyone tried making German Stollen with dried fruit and marzipan?
Does it need a couple of weeks to age it after baking?

My mother used to make them when we lived in England. My Dad would bring the ingredients back from his trips to Germany as back then (waaaay back then) you couldn't find most of the stuff down at the local Sainsbury's.
When the kitchen floor got polished spick and span at the beginning of Advent I knew that it was "Stollen" time - she used to mix everything together and then throw the dough onto the kitchen floor really hard to knead it
I know that they need to rest for at least 2 - 3 weeks before you eat them, they just get better and better.
Never made one myself though!

Thanks for your pretty anecdote. Guess I will not try to make it. Black dog hair on the outside with the powdered sugar just isn't traditional, I gather.
