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.

Braised veal cheeks – tender as butter

This dish is my absolute favourite for a festive multi-course meal. It is a bit time-consuming, but you can prepare it already days before your guests arrive and freeze it. As a side dish dumplings or Spätzle and a salad of lamb’s lettuce with roasted bacon and walnuts are a perfect match. The effort is rewarded by a super tender meat and incredible aromas!
