So this is my 100th post since I started in February and I’m so happy I’m doing this and I can share with you. I’m so grateful to you guys who are with me on this amazing journey. And because we have Easter and big eating 9 (and crappy weather) all around I made a bit of a different post today. Hope, you’ll enjoy it.
Actually I’m not a big cook but I like to cook or bake things once in a while especially for special occasions. So I made these things yesterday:
Ok, this is the dough under our Tube map tea towel.
If somebody had said me a few years ago I’d make yeast dough I wouldn’t believe it. I was all over about simple just stir and bake kind of things. But everything’s changing – including me – so few weeks ago I made my very first ‘pogacsa’ which is kind of a scone this time with cottage cheese and sheep cheese. And yesterday I made my very first ‘fonott kalacs’ which is translated plaited loaf.
Pogacsa/scone looks like this. This is not mine though. Apparently I forgot to take a picture of them but luckily Google is my friend.
Fonott kalacs/plaited loaf after plaiting (which I need to practice) and after baking.
Fonott kalacs is a classic, sweet loaf which actually we can eat all the time in Hungary but it’s unmissable at Easter like hot cross buns here in the UK I guess. Funny thing we bought cross buns too but they’re way too overload with raisins which I don’t like at all. 🙁
And because if Easter then bunnies and if bunnies then carrots I had to make a carrot cake too. This is more like the stir and bake category and I did it before so there was no challenge here. 🙂
Our favorite pictures. The top one in the middle was taken 11 years ago it was the very start of our relationship. 🙂
And do you remember the frame what I bought? Finally the pictures have arrived (as we have no printer) and this is the result. I love it so much.
Finally our house bunny (and dog, squirrel, monkey, piglet aka Mushu cat) and Sari the sheep just because of Easter. 🙂
I hope your Easter is going well too.
