TWD 12 - Semolina Bread with Wild Garlic Pesto

I really love this bread.

First I was bit in trouble what semolina is, as some sources told me that it is the German "Grieß", which we have also in Hungary, other sources told me that it is a kind of durum wheat flour.

At the end I chose the "Grieß", although I have never heard from any Hungarian that you can bake a bread out of it. But this is why I like TWD BWJ as you can try a lot of things out. :)))

Chocolate Mousse aka Snickers Cake

New opportunity to bake a cake. :))

One of my dear 
colleagues, Eleftheria celebrated her birthday on Monday and I baked this Chocolate Mousse Cake a.k.a. Snickers Cake as she asked for a chocolate cake. 

The initial idea of this chocolate mousse cake came from another dear colleagues, Evi. After I heard that the wish is chocolate cake, I immediately thought of this recipe to start the thinking. I also had some left over (approx. 100 g) roasted peanuts from the Hazelnut Biscotti. Tadaaaam. Here comes the Drunken Snickers Cake with just a hint of rum. The cake has 4 parts:

TWD 11 - Hazelnut Biscotti

I have to say I was very excited to bake these Hazelnut Biscottis, as I have been always fascinated by Italian food.

I also have to be honest. I have never tried either biscotti or cantuccini, so I had no idea what to expect.
