Welcome to my blog!
I’m a foodie, who loves baking and all things sweet. I thought of writing a blog as friends often ask me for recipes, which I collect from all over the place, such as my vast array of cookbooks and magazines, my German gran and of course other food blogs. People also always suggest that I should open a breakfast cafe (or tea room)…maybe some day, for now I just like long breakfasts whenever time allows and they therefore often turn into brunches.
What I like most for my brunch are sweet pancakes, waffles, muffins and cakes. Yep, nothing’s wrong with the occasional cake first thing in the morning! Admittedly, some may be a bit rich in calories and sugar but don’t be put off, they’re a treat. And, just think, if you’re having them for brunch you’re saving one meal that day, so it’s not as bad as having afternoon tea on top of breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If you’re not be able to face sweet treats, such as cupcakes or sweet pies, first thing in the morning you can course enjoy them any other time instead, for dessert for example.
My plan is to post a new sweet brunch recipe every week, so you can try them out for your own weekly brunches. As a Berliner, who has lived in London for over a decade and loves New York City, all three cities influence my cooking & baking. I also like to try and keep seasons in mind for my cooking – strawberries in the deepest winter won’t do it for me.
Well, I hope you enjoy my blog and find inspiration from my brunch delights.
Thanks for reading,
In a few months when I’ve had sweet brunches every week I might have to throw in the odd Eggs Benedict or salmon bagel – and occasionally I may get brunch cooked for me in a nice restaurant, which I might then review for you. Both will be the exception though!
