Summer Berry Bircher Müsli

I was recently working in the offices of a newspaper that had a staff canteen. As well as lunch, they also served breakfast which is a great thing, when you’re running a little late in the morning and don’t have time to make any food, which, of course, never happens to me… It’s can be […]

‘German’ NY Cheesecake with a cherry topping

I have to admit that I’m starting to get a little bit bored of the limited choice of ‘winter fruit’. European winters are that little bit too long. Luckily, there is preserved fruit from the summer and even luckier I found some, in form of a jar of cherries in cherry juice, in the back […]

Valentine’s Fromage Frais Waffles

  Happy Valentine’s Day… To be honest, I’m actually not much of a Valentine’s Day fan. Having grown up in Germany when it wasn’t yet a thing over there I can still happily do without the rather commercial fuss.  But I decided to use today’s date as an excuse for a breakfast of heart-shaped waffles in […]

I have made oat based pancakes before and also tried out a few cottage cheese pancakes, such as the blueberry one you […]

Banana Granola

Black Rice Pudding with Coconut Milk

Ladies and Gentlemen, please, may I present to you my vegan, gluten-, dairy- and even sugar-free brunch treat that I have been announcing in the last two posts: black rice pudding with coconut milk. I have only once been to Thailand and only for a stopover but I still made sure I had some of the […]

Greek Yoghurt Pancakes

Happy New Year my dear readers! Since it’s January and everyone is on a bit of a health kick I was thinking of posting a super healthy and energy boosting receipe as the first one in 2015 here but… I’m not. Maybe for my next post I will but for this one I ended up making pancakes as I wanted […]
