Today is the official opening of Richard’s by Hellmann’s! It’s a sandwich bar but so much more than that. Richard’s brings the New York deli to Antwerp. The restaurant has brick walls, clean and light furniture and a very yummy menu. Let me tell you something about this unique pop-up in the heart of Antwerp.
Sundays are for baking is one of my motto’s and today was no exception.
I recently bought a Madeleine baking tin and I just couldn’t wait to try it 😉
What we need (12 madeleines):
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 50 g unsalted butter
- 50 g caster sugar
- 30 g self-raising flour
- 1,5 tbsp cornstarch
- Some fine lemon zest
- Madeleine baking tin
- Preheat the oven at 180°C
- Grease the baking tin
- Melt the butter
- Mix together sugar, both eggs and the lemon zest until foamy
- Add flour and cornstarch
- Mix in the melted butter
- Fill the baking tin
- Bake for about 10 minutes or golden brown
- Let them cool down and serve
These little cakes bring back lots of memories. When I was little, I used to eat these are my grandparents. I have to admit these homemade ones of even storebought ones don’t compare to the ones from Lotus.
Have a delicious day ❤
Last week, The Boyfriend and I went strollin’ through Antwerp. Enjoying the sun, walking in and out stores, drinking. That was the plan. But our little citytrip turned into some kind of Chocolate Treasure Hunt… I don’t think we’ve visited stores that didn’t include chocolate. Oops!
Antwerp has so many chocolate stores, it’s unbelievable! I think I might map them and make a real Chocolate Treasure Hunt for friends or family. Wouldn’t that be fun?
One of our stops was Chez Claire. Some of you may have heard from it, or already tried it? Chez Claire is a fancy store with exclusively éclairs.
Easter is almost here! Are you guys as excited about it as I am? I don’t really decorate the house but I do love the Easter chocolate 😉 I think I’m going to make my boyfriend a little easter hunt. I think he’ll love it.
When I think about Easter, I think about chocolate, eggs, little chicks and bunnies. I somehow always go for the bunnies when it comes to Easter recipes. Last year, I made a big bunny cake. This year? I’m making one again! But a completely different bunny cake.
I have to admit something. I LOVE Banoffee. I’ve been dreaming of Banoffee things for a while. Did you guys see my Banoffee Pie back in 2014? Oh my, is it that old already?! I really didn’t think my dearest Banoffee and I were separated for that long… Good thing I made you something new today!
Today I’m sharing a yummy Banoffee something something with you: Banoffee Cupcakes! Careful, it’s about to get sticky over here… And crazy delicious 😉
This weeks recipe is one with a Royal touch: Swedish Princess Cake. Swedish what? This cake is a traditional Swedish layered cake with yummy sponge cake, pastry cream, lots of whipped cream and a subtle layer of green marzipan.
Finishing touch? A pink marzipan rose.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Any plans? Are you going to celebrate it with your love, friends or just by yourself? It doesn’t really matter, it’s always a good day to have a Cupcake 😉
I wanted to keep it simple this year. Most of us have to work and don’t have time – or feel like making time – to make something complicated. My solution? Chocolate Vanilla Cupcakes!
Once in a while I get this huge craving for cake. Just a simple cake. Do you have that too? Although I do like myself some storebought cake, you have to admit a homemade one is so much better. And so easy to make! To serve my fickle cravings, I made a Marble Cake.
Tomorrow is Lichtmis / Candlemas. The typical treat on that day is: Pancakes! I was thinking of many different Pancake recipes but given the time of the year and my love for skiing and Austria, I thought Kaiserschmarrn would be great!
Have you ever had Kaiserschmarrn? It’s a typical Austrian dish which is closely related to Pancakes. You basically make a couple of big, fluffy Pancakes and tear them apart. Add some raisins and apple sauce, some icing sugar and you’re good to go! Super easy and so so good!
