Rosa Cooking


a recipe I copied a long time ago from an old cookbook. it is very generous and not too demanding.

Preparation steps

  • Prepare the yeast.
  • Beat butter, 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons sugar, add yeast.
  • Add alternating milk and flour and orange and lemon peel.
  • Leave covered in a warm place until the dough doubles in size. Separate small balls the size of half a hand (larger or smaller if desired) from the risen dough. Lightly roll them out by hand, fill them with half a teaspoon of jam, close well so that the jam does not come out.
  • Arrange the finished balls next to each other on the shape of your choice (round or square for cakes). Put a small sheet of butter on each (I use a potato peeler).
  • Bake for about 15 minutes at 180 ° C until slightly browned. Sprinkle warm with powdered sugar.

Poppy seed cake

Along with more sumptuous walnuts and hazelnuts, and poorer carob pods ground into locust beans, poppy was common in leavened cakes, strudels, pies and cast cakes. The famous Viennese cuisine and the kitchens of the Germanic peoples in general celebrated it with a cake.

Tipsy trifle

The imaginative English trifle tasted a bit of homemade brandy and became tipsy, or as we would say - "scrambled". Don't worry, you can only try the perfect blend of biscuits, bananas and cream.
