Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes

This has been my go-to pancake recipe for years. Thick and fluffy pancakes with bursting blueberry pockets. Who wouldn’t love that?

 

The recipe is simple, fuss-free, and only needs one bowl and a few ingredients. I love to add the blueberries directly to the pancake batter but if you don’t have blueberries on hand, or if they are not in season, simply use frozen berries or omit them. The pancakes will taste great anyways.

Delicious plum dumplings reicpe

Traditional Austrian plum dumplings, known as Zwetschkenknödel, are great as a dessert, or a sweet and meatless main course. I love to eat them for lunch!

Plum dumplings are common throughout Central and Eastern Europe. Being Austrian, I grew up eating plum dumplings every late summer and fall.


These dumplings are made by stuffing damsons or small plums into a potato-based dough. Then they are simmered in water and covered in sweet, buttery, and nutty breadcrumbs. Cutting the dumplings open and making the plum burst open will give you a weird satisfaction :-)

Moist zucchini chocolate cake recipe

This easy and moist zucchini chocolate sheet cake is my favorite. You only need one bowl and no electric mixer. The grated zucchini will make the cake moist but you won’t taste it in the cake. It is the magic ingredient.

Easy sheet cakes are my favorite: no-fuss, one bowl, no electric mixer, and no decoration. They are also perfect to bring to potlucks, BBQs, or gatherings since they are easy to transport. Sounds good? It gets better: This cake is tender and has a rich, decadent chocolate flavor!
