We had a bunch of people for Easter, I figured I should provide some cupcakes.

A week ago I was making a cake for my sister in law’s baby shower. Unfortunately the cake broke and I was left with various pieces and no way to fix it. Reason for that “disaster” was too much shortening. I still have to get used to the measuring over here and when the recipe is asking for 1/3 cup oft shortening I shouldn’t use 3/4.
I made a chocolate cake for a baby shower. The Canadian Cook Book by Nellie Lyle Pattinson provided the recipe
The most North American dessert I can think of: Apple pie. This was a real challenge as well because I made the dough myself. I’ve seen the pre-made shells at the store but I feel like it’s not genuine if I don’t make it myself. I don’t even use cake mixes (except for buttermilk pancakes, I should look for a good recipe).
Fall is a great season because you can do so many exciting things with apples. I was born in October and I love apples, naturally, I had to make some apples muffins.
My mother-in-law had her birthday and I offered to make the cake. Buttercreme Torte is a family tradition when it comes to birthday cakes, thus I though I should provide my new family with this delight.
I thought I separate my baking and cooking from my regular blog so I can keep track of it.
My original blog is: http://lachenannun.blogspot.com
There you will find thoughts on my life in Canada, the differences and joys I encounter and how I am coping with the whole thing.
Soon you will find German and North American recipes here and how I am baking through it all.
I am always happy to hear comments, suggestions and whatever else you might want to tell me.
