Week 170: Lemon and raspberry Swiss roll

Lemon and cream cheese has always been one of my favourite combination. So I decided to incorporate it into another one of my recent favourite – a Swiss roll. While I was back at my parents’ place, mum and I made a couple of Swiss rolls and the more I made ’em, the more I like ’em!

Week 168: Bounty

Week 167: Rye sourdough cheddar loaf

I have not seen a perfect round nicely scored loaf come out of my oven for the longest time! So this is a much needed inspiration. As some of the cubed cheddar has risen dangerously close to the surface of the loaf, I opted for a simple scoring pattern and was surprised that it paid off nicely.

Week 166: Japanese strawberry shortcake

It is strawberry season in Europe. While there, I saw more strawberries than I can ever imagine. Sometimes, there are even random stalls setup in street corners, selling only strawberries. It’s a pity I couldn’t bring them back.

Week 166: Black forest double fromage cheesecake

Once you’ve gotten used to eating homemade desserts, you realise it is so much harder to satisfy that sweet tooth. I have been craving some chocolate cheesecake so I thought I’d do a Blackforest version this time.
