After a lovely week, I’m back in Finland again. This time I didn’t go so crazy with eating all the sweet things like in the autumn.. ..or that’s what I’d say. Only a baking per a day!
Was nice to see that there were different things on offer this time and could try out new stuff. There were some bakings that looked a lot like finnish pullas, but boah – those tasted totally different. It still seems that the Germans just don’t know how to use cardamom and the flavour of yeast was somehow too strong. Or then it’s just the way people over there like it.
But there were some yummy things too. My “cakery” (Haertle konditorei) didn’t let me down this time either – got some super-yummy Egg liquor and Mocca cake from there. Here’s a pic:
Also tried Apple strudel for the first time in my life, but well.. was quite tasteless the one I got. I also got my first Churros, but humm.. I think they weren’t quite the real-deal. Been made a bit too fast, they were thin and curly – not what I expected. But oh well, still of course I ate them all!
But ho-ho, also found something super-yummy. It’s kinda sad, ’cause this is so easy to make at home and all but.. it still took my breath away: Peanutbutter-Nutella filled bagel! It was served warm and just.. it was perfect! The place was called Phil’s – can’t wait to visit it again.
Here’s a random lemoncake from Milkau (this bakery is all over Braunschweig). The cake was ok, just like all their products. Nothing super special, but the prices are reasonable – 3€ for this chunk.
And guess what else – I also got to bake! We got Carlos a mini baking oven, and ta-da I made my first bread in Germany – the white with overnight sponge. Worked great even with less tools! In the recipe I replaced 30g of flour with 60g of wheatflakes to have something to chew on. Here are couple pics, it was served with super delicious Mincemeat-potatoe-leek soup we cooked:
But yup, I guess those are the highlights of the bakings I met this time. Next time I’ll get there it’s gonna be summer – can’t wait to taste all the weird ice creams!
Ps. Also the yoghurts in Germany are fabulous – among others I met tiramisu, marzipan, peanut and poppyseed yoghurts. Cherry is still my favourite flavour, though!
