When I first started this blog, I had no idea of what to expect in terms of followers. Did anyone even want to read my posts and try my recipes? Turns out, there are actually people that do!
As my follower count was slowly creeping up, I was thinking that I had to something special when I reached 100 followers. Ofcourse, once you set a goal like that, it seems as if though there’s no progress being made at all. Thus, I decided to just not check my count ten times a day.
And then there I was, just casually checking my blog, when my eye fell on the follower count.
You guys make me so incredibly happy, you have no idea. The thought alone that there’s all these lovely people from all over the world reading my blog means so much to me.
A million thank you’s!For the something special. I made an Autumn Coffee Cake for you. It’s getting colder (sort of), there’s all kinds of autumn-, or even winter- themed products in the supermarket. It’s coming, you guys. And I could not be happier. The next six months, when it’s cold and dark outside, but warm and cozy inside, is when I am at my best.
One of the perks is that you can eat all kinds of sweet things and not feel guilty at all, because it’s cold and you want food, which is actually a valid excuse.
Anyways, back to the cake. The fact that I am making a cake like this is so rare, I mean it has butter in the batter, it has butter in the filling, it has hazelnuts, it has chocolate, it has sugar. It is so sinfully good.
I must warn you beforehand, the batter on its own is already so velvety and smooth and delicious, that speed is definitely required to prevent eating it all at once.The batter is the same as for a sponge cake or pound cake, or whatever it’s called where you live. You just add some espresso. Basically, the easiest cake recipe in existence.
You could of course decide to not add the filling and hazelnuts, which certainly makes the cake a lot lighter and somewhat better for your diet, but does it necesarilly make life better for you? Don’t think so.
Make a cup of tea (or a glass of wine) sit back in your comfiest chair with a good book, take some time to relax. Don’t think about work, about chores at home, and most of all, don’t think about your diet.
Just enjoy the moment. You deserve it.
And again, thank you so much for following and reading :)!
