Lenten Chocolate Cake

Lenten Chocolate Cake
Chocolate cake and fasting with aromas of citrus have the dominant discourse. Simple and swift procedures without using a mixer, without eggs without butter.
Simply mix the ingredients of the cake with a spoon, add the mixture by the scoop to the form, creating a checkerboard pattern alternating the chocolate and the white mixture. As we do with the zebra cake. Optionally you can flood with a velvety chocolate ganache. Garnish with rolls of orange zest from Orange Spoon Sweet and enjoy it with less… remorse.

Apple Strudel

Apple Strudel
Although the contenders of its origin is the Austrians and Germans it does not concern us here, since pretty much all Central Europe and the Balkans have to show similar "pies" in roll form and fruit inside. Infinite variations but the combination of thin, crisp pastry in layered form of the roll and the soft, sweet fruit inside is the winner of taste.
Wonderful aromas mild acidic flavors, sweet surprises from the presence of the jam and raisins and very crispy sheet make this dessert excellent. The marzipan offers refined tones on the palate.
