It's also called the sugarbomb in some countries. Regardless, this is a fairly simple dessert, and an usual crowd-pleaser. It easily fits into a summery menu of some sort. Granted, you won't look your best in teeny tiny little bikinis after that, but let's face it, your best is far, far away. Embrace it and move on.

Yeah so let's not pretend this is me making a durable return to updating this blog. It's just that I actually kind of like being the obnoxious baker that once every blue moon posts something. This time, I come to you with a pie that's not really a pie, and that's a subtle hijack of a much more difficult piece of baking: a peach and almond pie.

Because sometimes people ask you for "a chocolate cake" and you feel like you've been insulted. You're a diva that way. You need to make things a bit more special. So there you are, berries.

So far, this Spring has been pretty shitty. If you're in Western Europe, you're having thoughts about finding the nearest weather drone and kick its metaphorical teeth in. However, let's not spoil our fun: some of the summery food and treats are there and we should use them. Therefore: strawberry tiramisu, yes, let's do that.

Let's make this simple, I have been away. It's not that you didn't deserve me, it's just that you didn't quite make the cut. It's not you, it's me. Let's just be friends. I'm doing this for you. And now that we've had our fill of clichés, I suggest we move on to this soft and sticky goodness of a cake up there, yes?

This is not for the feeble at heart. You know the Belgian people. They are fierce, blood thirsty and they've all been trained in the secret arts of assassination. They're also the masters of waffles, and one can't help but think they can't be so innocent in that enterprise either.

Apple and Gingerbread Tiramisu is one of the best desserts I've tasted. It's also quite perfect for Fall. You know, Fall, that time when poets tell you about freaking leaves and stuff. Fall isn't about that, it's about people giving you truckloads of apples, and you've got no idea what to do with it. So here I am, a true poet, and I offer you this
Baozis are a perfect autumn and of course winter treat. They are little steamed brioches that melt in your mouth, little pieces of couldy pastry which fills you with warmth. It's also quite versatile, and depending on what you've got in store, they can be as sugary or savoury as you want. But this is autumn, so I went with delightful chestnut jam.

I wanted to tackle the challenge of macarons. Long story short, I did it. Yeah, it's been a while but I'll try to post a bit more. So about the macarons. They're not as tricky as they are said to be, if you have enough prep time and the right tools, you can't really mess them up that much. You have to know what you are able to do and stick to that.
