Angelfood cake is one of those ubiquitous delicacies we all had in one for or another, sometimes so moist and delicate it left lasting memories, sometimes so dry and unremarkable we learned to hate the sponge cake.
But if you learn to make it fresh, any negative connotations you had before about it will melt into its soft crumb. Paired with this moody compote of blackberries and blueberries marinated together and garnished with a punch of licorice-laden tarragon, you have the makings of a very memorable dessert. Dollop the best organic whipping cream you can find alongside, and your guests will be talking for weeks about the meal.
Slow Cooker Blueberry and Cinnamon Swirl Bread is a great homemade slow cooker meal that is sure to please you and the whole family. This recipe is even great for those times when you need to take a dessert into work or to a gathering. This bread is not just an average bread recipe as it has blueberries in it and a cinnamon swirl that twists and winds throughout the bread itself. I absolutely love making this recipe because it is not too difficult at all. In fact, prior to this recipe, I always had a hard time making bread in the oven. It would either burn or not be cooked enough in the oven or it would just not taste the way it should.
I can’t think of a dessert more appropriate for summer than ice cream. It is refreshing, delicious and, best of all, extremely easy to prepare. The following creation is based on my mother’s ice cream recipe. She only prepared this recipe and my whole childhood I ate a marvelous chocolate ice cream. If someone had offered me another kind, I would have refused. This was the ultimate ice cream for me back then.
I have discovered a lot of other great recipes since then, but I still have a nostalgic feeling when I remember that great taste. And I still use this recipe as a base for many of my ice creams because you may add anything you want and the result will remain amazing.
I must confess that when it comes to Italian food I am completely helpless: I love almost everything about it. Tiramisu is an Italian desserts with a coffee flavor which simply melts in your mouth. Since Italians are drinking coffee all day long, most probably they thought of bringing it in desserts, too. A little bit extra coffee won’t hurt for sure.
A great alternative for the classical tiramisu would be the fruity one, which can be made with any kind of fruits, but the most popular remain berries and tropical fruits. So I thought of making a combination between those two and it turned out to be delicious.
They always say simpler is better and this recipe is a testament to that! Crumbles are my favorite way to utilize my favorite fruits of the season, especially when I have guests over and am crunched for time, this comes together so quickly and everyone enjoys it. This is an even overly simplified version, which you can gussy up by mixing more fancy fruits in, adding fresh herbs, or even a shot of alcohol like whiskey into the whipped cream!
