POLISH VERSION

Short but reeealy intense need to make some cheesecakes! That is why, two cheese-recipes coming up :)

Seriously though, there were several things that made me prepare this cheesecake… Firstly, never have I made mascarpone cheesecake sooo… high time :) Secondly, never have I made no baking cheesecake soooo… high time? :) Thirdly, the moment I saw the recipe and the photo presenting this cake, I knew it would be impossible to refrain oneself from making it, not to mention eating it! And finally, all the ingredients were patiently waiting in my kitchen to use them in a reasonable and… yummy way :) Coincidence? Doubtful :)
Oh, and above all, this cake was made to convince an Anti-Cheesecake Lady to cheesecakes in general! Was it successful? I guess it was :)

Toffi Cheesecake is quite creamy and very sweet :)
One piece of it will satisfy your belly for sure :)

If you have a really sweet tooth, this cake is certainly for you!

Just before Christmas I wanted to stop by, add a recipe and share some thoughts with you.

Stopping by – a tick.
Adding a recipe – a tick (in a second)
Sharing – in progress :)

Christmas cakes are almost ready. One cheesecake is still in the oven… but almost done.
Not sure how it’s with you but I’m literally surrounded by sweets! How can I say no to them? Well, I can’t. And I don’t want to.

But coming back, I’m here to wish you beautiful Christmas. Full of peace.
I guess that’s what we all need the most nowadays. I’ve noticed so many people wishing peace to each other. We lack it, that’s for sure.
When I look at myself… last six months… I don’t know when it’s passed. I really don’t know. I’m trying not to waste time. To use every single hour, every single minute of the day… and still, something is slipping through my fingers. I can feel it.

Pay attention to little things. Keep your eyes open.
It’s good to see things. It’s better to notice them.
Good to listen. Better to hear.

Have a beautiful time.

PeanutButter MiniCheesecakes

It’s been a week or more now since I started eating peanut butter regularly. By saying regularly I mean… everyday ;)
Sometimes I’m trying to pretend that it’s only an addition to some wafers… But sometimes this pretending is pointless – I just eat it straight from the jar… My jeans started protesting.

Because of my new eating habit, I realised I forgot to post one of the recipes based on peanut butter.
I’m doing it right now… getting down to some new recipes :)

Long time and… finally, cheesecake :)
With some warming up ingredients, out of which cinnamon is the winner.
Peanuts match the cheesecake in a perfect way. Actually, I dare to say they stole people’s hearts more than the cake itself ;P

Well, this cheesecake:
is express to make.
looks pretty.
has a unique taste.
Why not to make it right now? :)

Brownie with Drunk Prunes

POLISH VERSION

And yet another idea for a very good and heavy portion of a chocolate cake.
You know what I think about Brownies… I’ve said it so many times… Baking this cake only confirmed what I thought before – Brownies The King of Chocolate Cakes :)
And let me underline (subjectively so) that this cake is way better than the oatmeal one :)
Adding prunes made the cake more creamy and wet, which is really really good :)
You know me, I tend to panic for no reason. At first I thought the cake was not ready yet… as if it were still raw… And then it occured to me that these are prunes which give this creamy feeling… Gosh, one day I’ll be totally lost in this world ;P

I’ve got my own bakelist and I’m trying to keep it up-to-date… This time I also decided to check to exact date of adding this recipe to my list… and it turned out it was a year ago… Time flies ;)

Maja made a richer version of this cake. Me, the lazy one, tried to make it simple ;)

Totally.
One of the most delicious accidents ever ;)

There are several recipes waiting patiently to be posted but… I’ve chosen this one. The one I discovered today. The one I got to know accidentally. The one that came to my mind while preparing something else :)

Such a delicious dessert accompaniment.
Pure deliciousness.

My love for treacle is a neverending story :)

I’m here just to say that this meringue is better than the cinnamon one. Well, that’s the truth. If you’re thinking now which one to make, I’m telling you – this one. With all certainty. It’s way-out. Delicious in all possible meanings of this word. No joke. I’ve made it twice during this week and I plan to make it again – it says it all, I think :)
Big thank you to Dorota for this recipe. Big big thank you :)

Recently, I’ve managed to get some new testers of my baking, which makes me really happy :)
By the way, they ate this Dacquoise and they’re all alive. Till now ;P

And the meringue…
Very sweet, very good, very favourite :)
You should not forget this recipe. Trust me.

Long time not done.
I’ve made a really really delicious something recently. I hope to post it soon :) But in the meantime, because of this something, I had some whites to experiment with :)
I chose this meringue and… I have to tell you, it was SO SWEET! And to tell you something more, sometimes no sweet limit is a good decision :)

The best thing is that I’ve got some spare whites again… So what kind of meringue should I make next time? :)

Banana Bread

A lot of working recently. That’s good.
Less time for baking. That’s really bad.
That is why now I can really appreciate these moments when I can unwind spending my time in the kitchen, mixing, cutting, stirring… and of course, tasting!

Browsing through some baking websites, I found several cakes looking so interesting (taste-wise, obviously) that I had to spend some time thinking which one to choose… Well, after a long fight with me, myself and I, the decision was made – I’d make something else ;)
This something else is a cake. I mean, bread… I mean, a cake… Hmmm, that’s the thing – hard to say if that’s more like a cake or bread :) Let’s assume for a moment it’s bread. Well, that’s a sweet one, perfect for coffee. Now, one can say it’s definitely a cake. Really? Everyone who saw it said it was bread, bread for sure! :)
I chose to call it bread as… it’s my Sarenka and well, I can call it the way I want ;)
I’m not a big fan of banana baking therefore it came as a huge surprise that I liked it so much! My taste, absolutely. Banana Bread is quite heavy and wet in its texture. Yes, my taste :)
I found it on Asia’s blog and introduced tiny (really really tiny) alterations :)
