Usually we have one or two homemade chakes available, to enjoy with your tea or coffee.
Cake is a really scrumptious thing, especially together with one of our fine teas or a cup of our Cuban coffee. Of course it's not just any cake, but homemade goodness!
Our cakes we bake ourselves - either modern fusion recipes like Japanese cheese cake or matcha roulade - or we dig them up in our ancient, partially handwritten family heritage cookbooks. Bishop's bread for instance or my mom's apple cake. (My all time favourite by the way - working a day next to that one requires more willpower than a dwarf needs next to a keg of ale!)
We are a family and we bake at home, so sometimes the days can get quite stressful. If we really cannot make it to baking a cake, we get some pastries or croissants from our traditional bakery. That happens rarely, but it happens.
During winter, we also have biscuits and cookies. Here, too, we try to keep up our Eurasian fusion mix - Taiwanese pineapple biscuits for instance, or Austrian Linzer eyes? Yep, it pays off to drop by from time to time. Even if we don't feature a huge selection (that would only result on food wastage), there might be something waiting just for you.
Here we feature a Gugelhupf, a typical Austrian type of cake - from the outside and from the inside:
Or what about a really juice poppy seed cake?
