Tiramisu cupcakes

A wonderful small cupcake to put in a large paper cup, Katerina's recipe that I've slightly changed. :)



3 eggs
100 gr sugar
50 gr wheat starch
50 gr flour
1 tblspn vanilla pudding powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2 cups espresso coffees
500 gr mascarpone cheese
90 gr powdered sugar
200 ml whipped cream
bitter cocoa powder

Whip the whites of the egg and slowly add sugar. Slowly add one at the time wheat starch, flour, vanilla pudding powder, baking pouder and the yolks. Place the mixture in the muffin cups, but leave them half empty and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 20 minutes. This recipe should make around 20 muffins. 
Make the coffee and when the muffins are cold, perforate them with a fork and put 2 teaspoons of coffee on each muffin. 
For the decoration whip the cream and slowly add sugar. At the end add mascarpone cheese and gently mix together until smooth. Now you can either use a knife or a sac a poche to put the cream on the top of the muffins. Before you put them in the fridge cover them with some bitter cocoa. The muffins should rest in the fridge for at least 15 hours to get the best taste. 
I hope you'll like it, me and my friend certainly did! :)

Huge soft chapati filled with zucchini&onion

When your boyfriend's grandparents grow too much zucchini, this is what you can do: eat them! :) Unfortunately it's very difficult to take pictures when you're sooooo hungry, so this is what I've got... it was soooo tasty!!


80 gr wholewheat flour
80 gr white flour type 400
125 ml natural yogurt
pinch of salt
1 tbspn olive oil

Zucchini (depends on the size and how much you're hungry)
Onion (depends on taste)
1 hot chili
olive oil

Mix the ingredients for the dough and leave aside for about 30 minutes.
Cut the vegetables and fry them in a pan until they're tender.
Take the dough and roll 2 big chapatis. Cook them in a large flat pan.
Put the vegetables into the chapati and roll it.

The simple thing you can do, when you don't know what to cook for dinner!
Simple, ah? And soo tasty! :)

Zucchini and peas risotto

300 gr rice (roma)
4 small zucchini
1/2 onion
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 fresh chili
olive oil
200 ml tomato sauce
water (as needed)
parmesan cheese

Cut the onion and fry it on the olive oil. Add the cut chili, zucchini and peas. Mix from time to time and when the zucchini are a bit softer, add the rice and mix. Add the spices and the tomato.

Pizza with sesame dough

The summer just doesn't want to show up and I'm getting more and more stressed, but at least I can do some creative work in the kitchen. This time I've tried to bake a special pizza.


250 ml lukewarm water
13 gr salt
13 gr sugar
200 gr wholewheat flour
100 gr flour type 500
100 gr flour type 400
20 gr yeast
30 gr olive oil (approximately 3 spoons)
30 gr sesame seeds (approximately 3 spoons)

200 gr mozzarella for pizza
200 ml tomato sauce
1 tblsp olive oil
6 cherry tomatoes
a few leafs of fresh basil

Melt the yeast in the water and add it to the flour that you've previously mixed. Add salt, sugar, olive oil and sesame seeds. Mix everything in a bowl, then cover it with a tea towel. Leave it aside (you can put it inside your cold oven) for at least 2 hours.
Roll the dough in the baking tray. Mix the tomato sauce, olive oil, oregano and salt in a bowl. Put it all over the dough (from this recipe you'll get dough for two trays). Bake in the oven at 180°-200°C, after 10-15 minutes add the mozzarella cheese, that you've previously cut into pieces. 5 minutes before it's ready, add the fresh cherry tomato cut into half.
Serve with some fresh basil on the top.
