PokΓ© Puff inspired PokΓ©mon Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes

Hi guys!

PokΓ©mon. It had to be on the blog eventually, right? With the game being such a hype and PokΓ©mon desserts popping up everywhere, I had to make one too. Besides, who doesn’t love Pikachu, Charmander or Squirtle? Or maybe, just maybe, you fancied Ash or Misty πŸ˜‰

White Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Hi guys!

There are certain food combinations that always work. White chocolate and raspberries are no different! I love sweet raspberries but this cake actually needs the less sweet ones. They are the perfect counterparts forΒ the sweet white chocolate. I know it’s true because my mom often says my desserts are too sweet and she didn’t say it this time πŸ˜‰

Raspberry Cheesecake Bites

Hi guys!

Dessert comes in all possible sizes. These Raspberry Cheesecake Bites might be the smallest ones I’ve ever made. But small desserts can be as yummy as large ones. In fact, these little cuties are like a kiss from an angel. Heaven on your tongue. Especially if you cover them in chocolate. Yummmm.

These Raspberry Cheesecake Bites could make the perfect dessert after a BBQ, whereΒ you’ve possibly ate too much to handle a ‘normal size’ cheesecake πŸ˜‰

Raspberry Banana Smoothie

Hi guys!

I had some raspberries left from my Cheesecake
So I decided to make a smoothie!
I love smoothies…

Smoothie banaan-framboos

This smoothie is a little bit bitter but I like it πŸ™‚
I used the raspberries that I had left (a little bowl full) and two bananas.
Then I squized some oranges.
Put it all together in a blender and BLEND!

Enjoy!

I used to make smoothies quite often but my blender is dying a little so I’m a bit afraid to use it that much…
The rubber isn’t holding the juice anymore so my smoothies kind of run all over the place when I want to lift the blender from the motor…
Yeah, it sucks because it is just so sticky 😦
This time, it didn’t spill so much so I’m guessing that if I wouldn’t lift the blender, the smoothie may actually stay inside πŸ˜€
I’ll try that next time.

Now I’m just going to enjoy my smoothie πŸ˜‰

p.s. I made smoothie popsicles with some of the smoothie πŸ™‚ But that’s for another post πŸ˜‰

Have a delicious day!

Fiesta Friday #23: Raspberry Cheesecake

Hi guys!

I LOVE raspberries! Don’t you?

I was looking for the perfect Summer dessert besides ice cream and I have found it!
Really, this Rapsberry Cheesecake is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO delicious!
No, I’m NOT exagerating! AT. ALL.

Raspberry cheesecake 3

If there was one recipe you would try from my blog, try this! Please!
You won’t regret, I promise.
I was never a fan of cheese or cheesecakes but this…
I think I could easily eat the whole cheesecake by myself!
Thank God there isn’t too much sugar in it…

The first time I ate this DELICIOUS cheesecake was at my boyfriend’s house. His mom made this.
Oh it was so, SO good!
I then decided to make one myself!
One year later, it happened!
I must say, if I had known that my cheesecake would turn out to be so good, I wouldn’t have waited a year to make it!
I guess I was afraid that my cheesecake wouldn’t be as good as hers… (his mom is such a great cook!)

My parents love this cheesecake. My dad doesn’t really like cheesecakes but this one, he thinks is a “toppertje” πŸ˜€ (= a great one!)
Even the neighbours loved it!
I often give them some of my desserts because I always have so much left…
We’re only three (or four if my boyfriend is here)…

Now, let me introduce you to the amazing Raspberry Cheesecake!
I thought it would be the perfect treat for Fiesta Friday πŸ˜€
Thank you Angie at The Novice Gardener for this awesome party and of course also a big thank you for the co-hosts!
Let’s party!

What do we need:

  • 160g Biscoff (speculoos)
  • 160g butter
  • 500g raspberries (I used frozen ones and fresh ones to decorate)
  • 1 lemon
  • 350g cream cheese
  • 200ml cream (to whip)
  • 6 sheets of gelatine
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 bag of vanilla sugar (+- 8g)
  • spring cake tin

How to:

I put a sheet of baking paper (cut out in a circle) on the bottom of the spring cake tin.
Melt the butter. Crunch the Biscoff. Blend these two with your hands. Fill the bottom of the spring cake tin with this mixture.
Make sure it is spread equaly.

Mix the cream cheese together with the sugar and the vanilla sugar until it is nice and smooth.
Soak the sheets of gelatine in cold water. Squeeze the lemon and heat the juice a little.
Squeeze the sheets of gelatine and add them to the lemon juice. Stir until the gelatine is completely absorbed.
(This may take a while. If it is not hot enough, put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds.)Add it to the miture of cream cheese and blend well.
Whip the cream and blend it with the cream cheese mixture.

Put some raspberries on the cookie crust.
stap2
Put the cheesebatter on top of it.
stap3
Decorate with the fresh raspberries and leave it to chill in the fridge for about 2 hours.

Enjoy!

I was wondering the other day why Fiesta Friday lasts until Wednesday…
That means we only get one day to recover from our MAJOR hangover!
Perhaps because Fiesta Friday is all about enjoying and sharing and that should be happening every single day!
The one non-Fiesta Friday-day is probably a day to make Fiesta Friday an actual party…
Because it wouldn’t be a party if it happened every day, right?

If you have any idea or thoughts on this question, please share it with me! I’d love to hear your opinion!
Happy Fiesta Friday!
Don’t forget to take a glass of bubbles!

Have a delicious day ❀

Raspberry Merengues

Hey Hey Heeey πŸ™‚

This might be the easiest recipe I’ve ever tried.
Really, it CAN NOT fail.

My mother loves merengues very much. We had a family dinner and she asked for something light.
(My chocolate cake can be very heavy…)
So I immediately thought about merengues. I knew I had some raspberries left, so I decided to put them in πŸ™‚

meringues4
I can’t really tell how many merengues you’ll get out of this recipe because it depends on how big or small you make them.
I had 12 merengues with this recipe.

What do we need?
– 260g sugar
– 8 egg whitesΒ Β Β  – a pinch of salt
– raspberries
– a piping bag + decoration tip
– a tray
– baking paper

First, we mix the egg whites and the salt until you get it nice and fluffy.
Then, you add the sugar while you’re still mixing. The sugar needs to ‘stick’.
You’ll see what I mean if you add the sugar one bit at the time πŸ™‚
Now we add the raspberries. Make sure they’re cut into tiny tiny pieces. If not, they’ll get stuck in your piping bag and the merengue won’t be able to come out of it.
If the merengue is smooth and sticky, it’s time to pipe it!

Choose a decoration tip you like and fill the piping bag. (I’ve used decoration tip 2D by Wilton)
Put some baking paper on a tray. Pipe the merengue in any size you like.
Put it in the oven for about 70 minutes on 100Β°C.
meringues
When they’re done, check it. A merengue should sound hollow if you tap on the bottom.
Inside, it needs to be sticky. But you can only find out by tasting one πŸ˜‰

See, told you it was easy!

Have a delicious day and enjoy your raspberry merengues!

p.s. You can add any flavour you like to the merengue πŸ™‚ Sometimes, it’s better to use a powder instead of a real piece fruit. For example a kiwi. I think kiwis are too liquid to use for your merengues.
