The secret of the amazing flavour of this cake lies in the long process of maturing and only natural ingredients such as honey and spices. I prepare the dough on stir-up Sunday and let it sit in the fridge for almost a month. After the long rest, the cake is baked, sprinkled with Amaretto Liqueur, dressed up with layers of plum jam and marzipan, tightly wrapped, and left in the fridge for another week. Just prior to the festivities or one day before Christmas, Polish Traditional Gingerbread Cake needs only a shiny coat of chocolate ganache. Find the recipe here….
Rich, creamy and super fresh cream cheese that tastes heavenly. You can’t buy this little wonder, but you can make it home. It only takes two ingredients- full-fat milk, lemon juice, and a dash of salt (if you like slightly salty cheese). Homemade Cream Cheese is super delicious and can be eaten plain, topped with fruit jam or mixed with herbs, dill, chives, spring onion and spices for a different flavour. Spread it on a bagel, a slice of sourdough bread, a bun or toast. Find the recipe for Homemade Cream Cheese here.
