This recipe has been in my drafts for nearly 8 months. Last April I missed taking part in the mega BM and this was one of the recipes I prepared even before deciding not to take part. So I had it in the drafts and was waiting for a reason to post. This month’s Bread Bakers theme is international breads and what a perfect theme for this cinnamon rolls! So I decided to post these cute rolls this month. This month’s host Wendy of A Day In The Life On A Farm selected the theme International breads. And I can’t wait to see all the breads the members are going to post this month.

For the fourth week of the month long Blogging Marathon, the theme is Breakfast Recipes around the world. Again I wanted to try some new recipes for this theme and my first dish comes from Germany. Apfelpfannkuchen also known as Dutch baby in US, this is a sweet pancake baked in oven in a iron skillet. Made mainly with eggs and apple, this pancake is soft, slightly custardy with a nice crispy crust. As you know I love baking without eggs and I really wanted to do this recipe. Though the egg version is so bit different to look at, this pan cake was so wonderful. I ate two wedges in a go and I am craving for one more. It is so soft, mildly sweet and the mild hint of cinnamon it absolutely lovely. If you have a cast iron skillet, do use it for baking. As I didn’t have I used a cake tin for baking. And for the substitution I used a secret home made ingredient. So, do you want to know about the secret ingredient? Read on to know about it. It is quite interesting.
Even though I started the New Year with a nice note and started taking part in group challenges, there were some problems with my internet connection. My 3G data card started behaving weird. It worked when others used it but whenever I sat before my PC, it stopped working. I tried and tried a lot to post this but after a week of struggling with the data card, I just stopped trying. Till now hubby is clueless why it is not working for me. I think my data card doesn’t want me to blog!!!! Today surprisingly it is working and I am not going to waste a single second….
Steph of Stephfood challenged The Daring Cooks to prepare home made noodles and pasta. There are so many recipes and methods for preparing pasta at home. I tried German Spaetzle (pronounced as Shpeht-Slee) with mint flavour. I also prepared it eggless.
There are various methods of preparing spaetzles. One instrument resembled the murukku press. So I used a murukku press to press out the dough. The dough should be soft to get soft spaetzles. If not, they will come out harder. It came out so delicious and the preparation time is also very less compared to noodles and other pasta.
