Dang! I missed your great offer.
Here are some nerdy-looking ones in lieu (also made some green tea cookies but they were much paler than these which were baked last year):
...And I missed that post. I was in Cham again in the meantime.

(What is this, cookie tag? )

I keep looking out for a man with horns, some sort of satyr, but have never spotted one.

Yeah, cookie tag.

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

I promised my 3yearold, that I would bake her this cake when (and if) she stopped crying and throwing tantrums when she had to go to playgroup. Lo and Behold, the day finally came! and I had a busy morning planned, which left me only 40mins to turn a Migros Gugelhopf into this.........mind you I had to make the marshmallow fondant as well.

You offer the best bribes, Pather. Can I arrive at your doorstep to throw a tantrum and see what you'd bake for me?

Very adorable and pretty daughter, by the way.

Thanks, Argus, I do love my girls.
btw if you throw a tantrum on my doorstep, I will get you a double whiskey and then bake you something!

btw we werent allowed to cut the cake

and if anyone want to replicate this cake,
1 Gugelhopf, + 1cupcake
Cherry Jam
Cream - whipped with cream stabiliser
Fondant
2 wooden skewers

Slice cake in half, and spread jam.
shave off sides of cake for a better shape.
Literally stuff the cupcake in the centre so that a dome shape is formed.
Colour fondant, roll out pink fondant rather thick,
Cut out ears, Place 1 skewer at the back and cover with fondant
Cover the cake generously with Whipped cream.
Make face and place onto cream, and stick the ears in - DONT fiddle too much!!

enjoy!

Very popular sweet in South India.

Nei Appam or Unni Appam (Ghee doughnut) made out of rice and Jaggery garnished with coconut pieces fried in ghee.

Chicken curry with potatoes. I tried to replicate my mom's recipe. It wasn't even close but not too bad either.

Coconut Chocolate Pinwheel Biscuit

I made these yesterday, and they were great! thought I would share,

Ingredients

  • 125grams Butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cake flour, not self-rising
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded desiccated coconut
  • 170grams bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

Directions

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat 8 tablespoons butter and the sugar on medium speed until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat until combined.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture, and beat on low speed until combined. Add coconut, and beat until combined. Roll out the dough between two 12-by-17-inch pieces of parchment paper into a 10 1/2-by-15 1/2-inch rectangle, a scant 1/4 inch thick. Using a sharp knife, trim to even dough to a 10-by-15-inch rectangle. Transfer dough to a baking sheet, and place in refrigerator to chill at least 1 hour.
  3. Place the chocolate and the remaining tablespoon butter in the top of a double boiler or a heat-proof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Melt completely, about 2 minutes, and remove from heat. Stir in the condensed milk. Let stand until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Peel off the top piece of parchment. Using an offset spatula, spread the melted chocolate mixture over the dough. Using the bottom piece of parchment for support, roll the dough into a log. Wrap the log in parchment, and chill overnight.
  5. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Have ready two baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Remove the parchment from the log, and cut log into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Place the rounds on the baking sheets, spaced 1 inches apart. Bake until light golden brown on edges, 8 to 10 minutes, rotating halfway through. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool. Bake or freeze remaining dough. Store the cookies in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.

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

Hmmm...yum. Everytin here looks gorgeous. I wish I liked sushi more, the platter looks fabulous, I think I just didn't have the right sushi!

Linz cookies were fun to make for us, and I will have the most of qualified chef to check them tomorrow since she taught me to make them when I was a kid, I feel bad coz they are better than hers - mom, I didn't mean to!

(the secret is to put vanilla bourbon in them, lemon or orange zest and a load of butter, the jelly is strawberry/raspberry Satin)

Brioche Pain Perdu with fried banana and Italian roast ham - A typical weekend breakfast chez moi.

Bobotie - South African comfort food. It's a curried mince with apricots, almonds and a type of frittata on top.

Buche de Noel - this year's contribution to the Xmas feast. Triple chocolate, chestnut and raspberry cake with edible forest floor
