About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I don't like cooking very much, but I love baking - and everyone says I am making great cookies. I love trying new baking recipes and I am not making the same cakes or cookies often - it get's boring.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandma made great cakes. My mom didn't like baking, so I started making our weekly saturday afternoon cakes when I was about 14. My Grandma's sand cake was the best! I never managed to get close to that.
My cooking triumphs
I made my sister's wedding cake with four layers, decorated with white sugar frosting and red marzipan roses which my mom and my little sister made themselves.

Light Wheat Rolls
I don't know what went wrong,but I had to add way more flour, about two cups. Apart from that,the rolls did rise very well and were very good.

Bourbon Chicken
My friends used to eat bourbon chicken in the malls nearly every day when we we were in the US for holidays. As this doesn't exist in Germany, I looked for a recipe o surprise him and he was overwhelmed! I am a vegetarian, so I split the marinade and poured half of it over 300gram of chicken breast and the other half over diced tofu. I prepared both separately in pans (fried 1/2 chopped onion in some olive oil first, then browned the chicken or tofu, then added the marinade and cooked for further 5 minutes) and it was awesome served with instant asia noodles. I had to fry the tofu longer than the chicken, though, because it soaked up much of the alcohol. But the taste vanished when the tofu was dark brown. I used about 1 ounce of soy sauce less as it was very salty the first time I made it.

Burnt Sugar Cake II
A great recipe! I didn't frost the cake - it was moist and fluffy. As I took it to my work, my co-workers asked what tasty spice it would contain - they couldn't believe it was just burnt sugar. The taste reminded of German Spekulatius. To prevent the crust from tasting bitter, you should be careful not to let it get too dark. And one of my co-workers suggested to make the caramel syrup by cooking the sugar with the water from the beginning on, as I told her it bubbled up very high when I added the water to the boiling sugar. I would definitely make the cake again and try the suggested caramel procedure. Thanks for the recipe!
