always the same...

... yes I wanted to post and guess what? the usb cable for my camera was away again :-/
but now my newest post: chocolate hazelnut biscotti adapted from veganomicon and glutenfree, which I baked today. I won't post the recipe, because it still has to be improved (unless someone wants to help me)...

One post after another

I really hope that this will not be the last time that one post comes after another and I will post more often. At the moment I have so many ideas and I'm dreaming of publishing a cake book in German (maybe it works - we'll see, if I have enough time and ideas). So here is my cake: Portuguese cinnamon cake! It's so delicious with just the right amount of cinnamon and your kitchen will smell like it's Christmas time.
