Strawberry Sour Cream Cake

, , ,

Finally!! The strawberry season is open! There are a few strawberry fields in the region, where we go pick as much as we wish.
Then we have our first Strawberry Sour Cream Cake.

Easy to prepare and really delicious. The right cake when its warm outside.

For this cake we use “Schmand”. A typical Bavarian sour cream with a fat rate of at least 20%.
If you can’t get any “Schmand”, use half Creme fraiche and half Sour cream.

Rhubarb sour cream cake

, ,

Spring is here! Its rhubarb time! As a kid we loved to wear the huge rhubarb leaf as a hat.

Unfortunately we don’t have rhubarb in our garden, fortunately we have markets selling regional fruits and vegetables.

Actually rhubarb is a vegetable, but it is mostly used in sweet dishes, or as juice, marmalade, jam and in cakes and tartes.
