Chocolate Pancake Cake


This is a very healthy dessert with nearly no calories at all.

It’s almost like a tic tac.

Okay, that’s not true… but wouldn’t it be awesome if it was?


You know what?

Around this time of year people often ask me: “Petra, why each year in February you die and then come to life again in March?

And I say to those people: “I dunno, but do you have some chocolate for me?”

That’s exactly what happens. Exactly that.

So yes, it’s chocolate that makes me crawl through the end of winter each year.

Like, for example these chocolate pancakes with lovely whipped cream filling that I had for breakfast today.

Let’s just hope that our door frame will have mercy on me and will still keep me letting out of the flat.

Let’s hope…



Here’s what you need if you want to commit this sweet sin too.




1. First, combine the dry ingredients: 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 4 tbsp cocoa, 1/2 cup granulated white sugar and 1/4 tsp salt.

Chocolate Silk Pie


I know what you’re asking.

You are asking: ‘Petra, if I eat this, when am I allowed to eat next? In seven days? In two weeks? A year? It looks so rich.’

I truly don’t know the answer to that question.

But what I do know is that St.Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and on that day all things luscious and sinful are more than allowed.

Luscious and sinful, that’s exactly what this dessert is.

And here is how you can make it too…



This is what we need.




To make the crust:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C).

2. In a food processor, pulse the nuts and cookies until small crumbs form.  Melt the butter and add it to the nut-cookie mixture.

Chocolate Cookies With Nuts And White Chocolate Chunks


I am definitely making these chocolate cookies for Christmas.

You know, we have a very serious chocoholic in our family.

It’s my Mom.

My beloved Mom.

And because my love for her is so big, I always try to include as many chocolate recipes in my holiday baking list as possible.

I am sure my Mom will love these. Totally and completely sure.

In my humble opinion, these cookies taste just amazing – with their wonderfully soft centers, crunchy edges, full chocolaty flavor which is perfectly balanced with white chocolate chunks and delicious nuts, they have a strong potential to be perfect and genuine crowd pleasers.

Here’s how to make them…

The Holiday Season is here.

I have generously granted myself the right to post recipes for Christmas cookies here, on this little site of mine, well before the actual Christmas day arrives.

I do it all for the sheer good it can do to mankind, you know. I need people to know what my favorite cookies are, how else could they possibly go on? My sweet tooth plays no role in this game. Although, it might play a little role, if you insist. Okay, it plays a huge role! So now you know it!


To kick it all off, I have made my very favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies today.

I will definitely be making these this month again. Mostly because they are just awesome! Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, full of chocolate deliciousness – pure heaven!
