I first tasted this dessert at our favorite Indian restaurant after my husband insisted that it was very good. I immediately liked it since the taste reminds me of Turkish desserts like baklava, revani and Kemalpasa. Since then, I have tried to make Gulab Jamun multiple times at home. It is a very simple dessert, but I admit that it took me at least 6 tries to make it the way it is supposed to be! This is a step-by-step recipe, so please follow all of the steps carefully and look at the pictures as a reference.
My mother-in-law gave me two dessert recipes for us to enjoy (actually, I begged for them myself :D). They are both her signature desserts. I loved the way the recipes felt when I read them. Yeaaah, I can imagine the dish or the dessert just by reading the recipe! :) The first one was “Black Cake” – I will post the recipe of it sometime next week. The second recipe was this one.
Don’t you just love the colors of this roll?! If you decide you want to make it, you will first have to finish reading my tiny entry about my everyday life :)
This particular recipe of Foret Noire Cake is very close to the Schwarzwäld cake and as I heard, is very popular among French and Germans. There are different methods used in making the Black Forest Cake, as it seems that the original version has been changed many times. I chose this particular one since I came to love it very much.
We love home made Tiramisu. I think we make it more than any other dessert. This Tiramisu recipe will definitely rock your world. I researched the origin of this treat and found a lot of different information about it. A very interesting one came from my sister Kamola, who knew the wife of an Italian ambassador in Uzbekistan. According to her, Tiramisu was first prepared by wives of soldiers. They would prepare this desert for their husbands because it was filling and contained ingredients (eggs, cream, strong espresso) that kept soldiers energized and ready to fight and protect. Most likely by now you have already tried some type of tiramisu recipe, or maybe you’ve tried it in some Italian restaurant. I urge to give my tiramisu recipe a try!
