New ideas want to be tried out constantly and can be found bit by bit in my Kochblog.

Fast Desserts are my World!

As a Bavarian and Viennese by choice, I love the simple Bavarian dessert ideas just as much as Austrian dessert variants. International desserts, desserts in a glass, warm and cold desserts can be found in my recipe collection.

A dessert is the last highlight of a meal, a dessert should glide gently over the tongue like a lemon butterfly and should not strain the stomach under any circumstances. The sweet finish must go well with the menu, must not be too light – one would forget that immediately – the dessert must be perfectly balanced. One should have the impression that the sweetness would not make fat – otherwise the pleasure is not great.
