Versunkener Apfelkuchen – Sunken Apple Cake

Growing up apples were one of those fruits I ate because it was seen as a treat not because I genuinely liked them. Sure, they are plenty adaptable and ‘one a day, keeps the doctor away,’ but I never awaited their season with excitement like nectarine or feijoa season (only the best fruit around and…

Rote Grutze – Berry Pudding

Cannes film festival allowed for an interesting interview with Julianne Moore where she mused on the characters she has played and how no one is truly ordinary. Reading that quote reminded me of a conversation with a friend who is my father’s age and a rather memorable character. In fact with his white upturned mustache,…

Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate pudding is one of those simple, buy-in-the-store kind of things. It comes in plastic and when you scoop it out it tastes like chocolate milk that’s been thickened. It’s an easy snack and something that I was only introduced to at eight years old on my first trip overseas. It involved twenty seven hours…

Soft Pretzels
