Making Donuts with Dr.Oetker

Hi guys!

I think it’s been a while. At least a week. The beginning of the year was crazy, we had a 2-days event for work and then a business trip came along (forgot to take my laptop with me – of course). So yes, I missed my kitchen and I missed my blog. But I haven’t been gone for long 🙂 I’m still amazed at how much I like to bake and blog seeing it’s only been a week since my last blogpost and I missed it.

To start the new baking year off right, I immediately baked something I’ve been wanting to do for years. I bought myself a donut baking tin! The day after, some yummy donuts were born. Why I waited a whole day? Because I didn’t have enough flour and the stores were already closed. So typical…

Apple Bread Pudding

Hi guys!

My number one to go for treat at the bakery used to be Bread Pudding. My Dad always got us a piece and even my grandmom made sure there was some Bread Pudding when I came over. We just love it! I tried it myself once and it was pretty good. Not really like our bakery makes it, but it was good.

A couple of days ago, I came across this yummy recipe from Stephanie (Somewhat Simple) for Apple Bread Pudding. Such a great seasonal twist on my favorite bakery treat!

Spiderweb Pumpkin Cheesecake for Halloween

Hi guys!

We’ve had Halloween Cupcakes and Cookies. Now it’s time for a Halloween Cheesecake! What seasonal veggie could be better to play the lead in today’s Halloween recipe than pumpkin? None I tell you 🙂

Pumpkins always remind me of October and of Halloween. Always. So of course one of my Halloween recipes had to feature pumpkins. I mean, come on. Pumpkins are veggies that can’t be ignored or they’ll turn ugly, agressive and mean. Oh wait, that’s my neighbour’s fabulous carved out pumpkin I’m describing… Anyways, it’s pumpkin recipe time today!

Easy Speculoos Cheesecake with Dr. Oetker

Hi guys!

September means “Back To School”. The little ones are probably already looking forward to Christmas and the oldest ones may haven’t yet begun their new school year. But one thing is for sure: everyone is getting busy again. Including mom and dad. Planning after school activities, who’s going to bring them to school? Who picks them up? Are the grandparents available? Can Little Joe bring his friend over after school? …

My Grandpa’s Favorite: Rice Pie

Hi guys!

When I was a kid, there was always one pie which appeared at every birthday party: Rice Pie. Why? It is my grandpa’s abolute favorite pie. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him eating anything else at our family birthday parties. So when Dr.Oetker challenged me to make a dessert which reminds me at my grandparents, the choice was easily made 🙂

I don’t know if the fact that I’ll be bringing this one to my grandpa has anything to do with it, but I’m actually pretty nervous about the outcome of my Rice Pie. Will it be Rice Pie worthy? Let’s find out!

Oreo Cream Puffs

Hi guys!

Before reading on, you must know this is by far THE.BEST.RECIPE.EVER! 😮 No kidding! These Oreo Cream Puffs are so delicious you will wonder how you’ve been able to live without them all your life. I mean it. I do.

banketbakkersroomintpngYou probably know how I usually don’t like the ‘instant’ baking products such as baking mixes because everything homemade is just much better? Well, I’ve changed my mind! Recently I received some products from Dr. Oetker for World Baking Day. They have this pastry cream which is awesome! It tastes just like the homemade one and it is much easier. Why using pastry cream in a bag? Because somehow I never seem to get the perfect pastry cream. I get scared whenever I have to use the stove because that usually doesn’t end the way I wanted it to be. That’s why this pastry cream from Dr. Oetker is the perfect alternative! I’m sure I’ll be using it some more 🙂

 

Aaand that pastry cream made it possible for me to make the perfect Oreo Cream Puffs! So good. (YES, it does look a little like poo. Just look past that. I can’t help Oreo’s being black…)
