I don't like making yeast dough. Waiting for the dough to rise irritates me. I like eating cakes, small buns with fruit and other kinds of filling.

Today I decided not to give in to laziness and to celebrate Children's Day with pretty, small buns with raspberries, cottage cheese and a crumble topping. My children were delighted and I felt like a child when I relished the small, warm, soft bun with a sweet and sour filling. After all, in each of us there is a little bit of child, isn't there?

Ingredients (8 buns)
250g of flour
7g of dry yeast
1 egg
75g of sugar
125ml of milk
40g of butter
a pinch of salt
40 raspberries
8 teaspoons of cottage cheese
1 teaspoon of potato flour
2 teaspoons of caster sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence


My son fancied orange kissel for dessert. I like making my children's little dreams come true, so I decided to do it. I try not to use readymade kissel. I make it by myself from fresh fruit. I had a little problem with the oranges though, because I simply didn't have any left in the kitchen. So I tried using processed orange juice not clarified with pieces of fruit, and it turned out to be a great base for the dessert. The process only involved heating up the juice and adding potato flour with a bit of cold juice. A little heating up and the dessert was ready. Necessity is the mother of invention... even in the kitchen Uśmiech

500ml of orange juice
3 teaspoons of potato flour
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
fruit for decoration


Aside from all the negative effects of the coronavirus epidemic, the best thing in my family is the time we're spending together. We always felt that we were missing this, and now we almost have too much of it. We more often eat meals together, we have time to talk, play board games or watch another episode of our favourite series. If we eat together, we feel as if it was the weekend every day. And if it's the weekend... there must be dessert. Today I offer chocolate cake with blueberries. It is strong chocolatey, plump and moist. It is perfect for relaxing with afternoon tea on a sunny terrace.

Ingredients (bread pan)
180g of flour
100g of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of cocoa
80g of melted butter
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
220ml of hot water
half a teaspoon of cinnamon
a pinch of salt
150g of blueberries
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of potato flour
50g of chocolate drops


My mood during social isolation during the coronavirus epidemic is great one day, motivates me to work and play with the children, but the next day I have to sit on the couch under a blanket with a glass of wine. My children don't let me give in to temptation and hide under the blanket in a bad mood, and wine definitely has to wait until evening. But sometimes I try to improve my mood and with the family I prepare something delicious, colourful and ... best of all with chocolate. Delicious and with chocolate – a brownie of course. And colourful? It is also possible. Just add sugary spring decorations or colourful m&m's. If like me you need to cheer yourself up, make this brownie – it's not much work, you can bake it in no time, and even the aroma will make your day better. Enjoy!

200g of flour
150g of brown sugar
50g of peanut butter
50g of cocoa
120ml of melted butter
300ml of milk
100g of chocolate drops
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of vanilla essence
a pinch of salt


Until we have fresh fruit at the market, we have to use up what we have. My children always choose tangerines, grapes and apples, so they are always in my kitchen. I regularly buy blackberries, but because of their price only for eating, not baking. This will come later. Today I offer an almond oat cake with a lot of dark grapes. So it would be much tastier, I added some cashew nuts to the crumble topping. Prepare it by yourself, it is an easy and delicious cake. Cheer someone up who is worried about being in quarantine.

Ingredients (20-cm cake tin)
130g of flour
60g of ground almonds
100g of rolled oats
150g of butter
130g of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 tablespoons of chopped almonds
2 tablespoons of chopped cashew nuts
300g of red grapes
1 tablespoon of potato flour
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
