Today I prepared strawberry tapioca pudding with white chocolate. The beginning of the holiday was excellent, because my children love tapioca pudding. I have already prepared many versions of this dessert: vanilla, coconut, and chocolate. Every time it is really great. Many types of fruit go well with this dessert, but especially slightly sour ones.

60g of tapioca
420ml of milk (any kind of milk)
half a teaspoon of vanilla essence
50g of white chocolate
500g of strawberries


Muffins are the nicest cakes. Everybody likes them, especially children. They are excellent for lunch, afternoon tea or for a school integration party. You can bake them all year round. In the summer you should have them with fresh fruit. In the winter add spices. They will warm you up with a nice Christmas fragrance. Muffins also have other advantages. They are swift: a few uncomplicated ingredients, which you only need to stir and put in the oven. We like cake like that, don't we? The only problem is whether to make a double serving at once?

A few days ago I bought some apricots and peaches. Although they look nice, they are sour and my children didn't want to eat them. Fruit are excellent ingredients of muffins. The muffins were moist and nicely sweet-and-sour. They were great in the warm summer afternoon.

225g of flour
180g of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 banana
150ml of milk
175ml of oil
a pinch of salt
1 peach
2 apricots
caster sugar


We ate our first strawberries of the year at the beginning of May in Spain. It is hard to believe that they were the same Spanish strawberries which in Poland are fit only for decoration because they taste nothing like strawberries. In Spain they were beautiful, sweet and juicy, but it is not surprising that strawberries ripening on bushes in glorious sunshine are so delicious. Those which ripen during transport don't have a chance.

We already have beautiful, juicy and sweet strawberries in Poland. Even though the price is far from ideal, I couldn't resist. We will gladly eat the first strawberries fresh. When there are a lot of them and the price is much lower, we will put them into desserts, jellies and cakes. Today I have a recipe for a simple dessert in which strawberries are merely an attractive addition.

Ingredients (5 flowers)
1 pack of French pastry
2 tablespoons of milk
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
150g of mascarpone cheese
2 teaspoons of caster sugar
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of lemon peel
5 strawberries
3 tablespoons of chopped pistachios


The sour pink-green stems of rhubarb are one of the symbols of spring. You should pick rhubarb at the turn of May and June, because the amount of calcium oxalate is low in young spears. In the course of time this amount is higher and the rhubarb can be impaired.

Today I used rhubarb to make a cake with budino and a crunchy crumble topping. It was yummy, moist, refreshing and excellent for a summer tea party. I will make it more often, because as well as its excellent flavour it has a couple of other assets: you don't need any sophisticated ingredients, you can prepare it easily and fast, and you can use any seasonal fruit.

Ingredients (20x20 cm cake tin):
200g of flour
1 tablespoon of potato flour
1 big tablespoon of peanut butter
100g of brown sugar
150g of butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 teaspoon of baking powder
a pinch of salt
vanilla budino
350ml of milk
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 long stems of rhubarb
200g of raspberries
caster sugar


Today I would like to share with you the recipe for nut and chocolate flowers with French pastry. I made them because we immediately wanted something sweet. It is good to have a pack of chilled French pastry in the fridge. Then you need some chocolate, jam or some fresh fruit to conjure up a swift dessert. On the internet you can find a lot of instructions on how to artfully roll French pastry to make great cookies. Try it; it is easy! These freshly-baked French pastry flowers with melted chocolate inside are excellent with fragrant coffee and an interesting book.

Ingredients (8 cookies)
1 pack of chilled French pastry
8 teaspoons of peanut butter
150g chopped milk chocolate
1 tablespoon of milk
caster sugar
