    Banana raisin cake

    Banana, cinnamon, raisins and some chocolate sauce… Mmmm, sounds amazing, right? Well, it tastes even better. This banana raisin cake is super delicious and very easy to prepare with a handful of ingredients.

    Vanilla custard slice

    This vanilla custard slice is a very popular Romanian dessert. It is made with vanilla custard and puff pastry and, optional, with whipped cream.

This vanilla custard slice is also incredible easy to make, of course, if you decide to use¬† commercial puff pastry. You also have the possibility to prepare puff pastry from scratch but it takes a lot of time. I have to admit that I prefer the faster and easier way: I call my husband and ask him to buy a pack of frozen puff pastry :).…
