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

Sticky toffee pudding uncut (before the second baking) and cut, and a piece of naan bread which got munched on.

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

Always find frosting cupcakes or my lopsided loaf cakes so much fun (the kid in me refuses to retire).
This frosting is made with 2 tbs flour cooked in 3/4 cup milk whisked into softened butter (100g) whipped with a cup of powdered sugar. Grated lemon rind and juice added for flavour.

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

Fresh rosemary, garlic, manchego cheese, and bread crumb encrusted rack of lamb with creamy mashed potatoes. The lamb was cooked to perfection and tasted absolutely amazing...

I also served a simple salad with tomatoes and perl las blue cheese (from grumpy of course) in a balsamic dressing that I make from scratch.

So easy and so so good.

Panforte die Sienna. I made this yesterday. Supposedly the devil made a nun do this. But this is only one version behind this Italian sweet.

The picture is from Google

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

Here is a Royal Trianon Cake I made for my daughters birthday. There is a eggwhite and hazelnut/almond biscuit base with a praline center topped with a dark chocolate mousse.

(the pic is from google, but mine looked exactly the same... I need to work on the elegance of presentation like this person)

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

Hey . my Mum used to make lemon meringue pie like that and she used to use Royal pie filling, which was essentially a lemony-custard mix with a lemon oil capsule in it (I think)
Used to fascinate me.........

I love lemon pie. I eat frequently with condensed milk filling, but this time I tried this way, more acid.

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

Had completely no idea what to prepare during the last weekend...this is what I came up with
1. Pampuchy- special kind of bread rolls which are steamed instead of baked
2. Little Carpathian mountains cake
3. Russian pierogi
4. Prawns with garlic bread

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

My weekend treat and it's really yummy.

White Chocolate Brulee.

The marketing text says: Break the sugar crust and savor the creamy custard that awaits you.


This recipe and other ones can be found here.

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

The other day I was munching some of those Micado sticks when I though that they would taste a lot better if they were actual pretzel's covered in chocolate. (I'm sure I read about that or saw it somewhere at some point and those little synapses did their thing as it's definitely an American thing)

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

Choc chip and gingerbread cookies (for human consumption) sent to the guide dog school on the occasion of our foster dog's second birthday (yeah, mental, I know), seafood spaghetti (made from frozen mixed seafood from Aldi which is reasonably priced) and another recurring fav, Zwetschgenkuchen (plum cake).

(Forgot to upload pics just now and then told it was a duplicate when I tried again but with pics.)
