But then I also do have a very weak spot for easy sheet cakes. Usually prepared for a larger crowd, they were regulars on our table during my childhood. One of the nicest traditions. I do thank my grandma for her unwritten law that there had to be at least one home baked cake each weekend.

Our friends Sherry and Bob had taken us to Bi-Rite Creamery, where we had tried different flavors from the sample spoons they very accommodatingly handed over the counter until we stopped at balsamic strawberry, salted caramel and roasted banana.

Getting the taste of your very first [almost] flourless chocolate cake, there’s no way back. It is a regular on our table, my friend Kristin serves it (with even more butter ) in her coffee bar next door and my grandpa’s girlfriend who is in her 80s fell for the recipe, too.

Now that this years carnival season has come to an end, I wanted to try my luck with my very first homemade Krapfen. Fully custom designed: Smaller in size than off the shelf ones (so you could have more without feeling guilty!) and of course filled with my favorite rose hip jam.

Spotting Mav’s cookie recipe (herself inspired by Camilla), the sloppy piles on my desktop all of sudden became less important… Christmas cookie baking was overdue! Totally overdue. My annual routine…

Clearly more on the skeptical end, I was quite intrigued by the chocolate & olive oil combo. And stepping on uncertain ground once more paid off, I was very positively surprised by the recipe’s outcome.
