Hamburg Franzbrötchen

Attention for all non-Hamburg people (by the way, in Hamburg those people are called “Quiddje”): Although the name sounds like a sort of bread roll (Brötchen means roll), Franzbrötchen actually have nothing in common with rolls. It is a sweet, buttery pastry with cinnamon. In Hamburg people like it for breakfast.

Cinnamon bun (Franzbrötchen)

(approx. 16-18 pieces – needs 1.5 h time for rising + 20 minutes baking time each tray)

Attention: during baking a part of the butter leaks on to the baking tray. Don’t worry, that’s normal. After baking, take the baking tray out of the oven and leave the pastry on it for another 10 minutes, then a part of the butter has been absorbed again.

Pasta makes you happy

Spaghetti Bolognese – that’s where it starts. Only in Germany this spicy tomato-vegetable sauce with minced meat is called like this. The Italian calls it “Ragú” and there are thousands and a recipe variant. In search of meatless recipes, we simply replaced the minced meat with lentils. And lo and behold? No Bolognese, no Ragú – but delicious!

BBQ with deer

I like deer so much that they can eat everything in our garden almost unhindered,  without really taking any serious action against it – from the tulip to the apple tree, from the phlox to the cranesbill.
