Rhubarb sour cream cake

April 23rd, 2018 | sweets

As children, in spring we held the huge rhubarb leaves from Grandmother’s garden like elephant ears and found it hilarious. At some point, our kids had the same fun on the giant leaves with the red stalk. And so are the photos from childhood days similar from generation to generation

Rhubarb sour cream cake

Rhubarb unfortunately does not thrive in my garden. What a pity! How I would like to cook – like my grandmother – strawberry-rhubarb jam, rhubarb compote and red fruit jelly with the beautiful red stalks from my own garden. Fortunately, you can now buy rhubarb again at the markets: regionally and seasonally, as we like it.

The following rhubarb cake tastes particularly good the next day, when it is well pulled through – ideal for guests!

Madeira: Kebabs, Poncha and Bolo de CACO

We ate the best Bolo de Caco on the village square in Monte above Funchal on Madeira island. The atmosphere there was special. It was lunch time, we were – away from the hustle and bustle of basket sled tours and cableway – alone in the square, apart from some mangy dogs hanging around and taking sometimes a sluggish effort to chase a pigeon. And there we discovered BOLO DE CACO.

Fish market? No, homie, „FrischeParadies“ [paradise of freshness]!

Thirty years ago you could buy super fresh fish directly at the fish market in Hamburg. Today, only a handful of cutters are pinning at the pontoon of the fish auction hall. So where do the Hamburg people buy fish today, especially if they don‘t want to get up Sunday morning at 4 o’clock? I swear on FrischeParadies. Nowhere else in Hamburg you’ll find such a well-stocked and wonderfully presented fish display as in FrischeParadies. And where do you find this paradise for foodies? Of course, in the Große Elbstraße [Great Elbe Street]. Where else.

All cookies already eaten up? Bull’s-eye poppy seed biscuits

This year’s first advent coffee party and all cookies already eaten up?
