Apart from my proudest moment of attempting to bake the fame Blackforest Cake, partially succeeding in it and fulfilling a guest post promise about the cake here, I finally get the chance to meet up again with our Mandarin teacher turned good friend over a cup of coffee and a slice of cake. Her son has growned leaps and bound and is adorable as ever. It is good to catch up instead of couping up at home alone. And as a reminder, it is something I should do more often too! Thanks KY for coming over :-D
This recipe is a handwritten recipe from hubby´s old German cookbook. How authentic is that?! Since it is in German and the recipe is written in a totally different format versus all the standard cookbook format I´ve used and read, I am glad I managed in the end. The cake proved to be as delicious as how it is suppose to be. With lots of Kirchwasser alcohol in it, it is actually not a cake to be enjoyed as a family! This is the real deal. So do check out DesperateHousewifeinHolland from time to time for the recipe.
Oh yes, incase I forget to highlight to you again, today is German Thursday. The cake part was not planned because sorta impromptu as it is a public holiday here and we had guest. But dinner was planned.
We had Currywurst. It is a standard snack food which apparently originated from Berlin but had since surface in every corner of Germany. Currywurst is essentially Grilled Sausages, sliced up and served with tomato base gravy and a dash of curry powder. It is a very simple snack but nevertheless fulfilling at any time of the year :-D
