Pumpkin Spice & Pie

Pumpkin Spice & Pie

Yesterday was Friday the 13th and it’s mid October, so this calls for a pumpkin recipe! I wanted to make pumpkin pie for almost two years now, but somehow never got around to it. Pumpkin pie spice is an American spice mix commonly used as an ingredient in, […]

Blueberry Pie

Blueberry Pie

Happy π-day everyone! I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last posted a pie recipe, shame on me! Even more because pies are my favourite thing to bake. This pie is a combination of an American classic, the blueberry pie, and a southern Dutch pie. […]

Gooseberry Meringue Pie

Gooseberry Meringue Pie

Gooseberry meringue pie, my hubby’s favorite of all Limburgian pies. Gooseberries are available from mid June until the end of July. I made one in May, so I used canned berries but recipe remains the same. Adjust the amount of sugar to the acidity of […]

Apricot Pie

Apricot Pie

Can you tell I love pies? I really do.. Luckily it’s what my region of the Netherlands is known for! This time I’ll share an all-time favourite: Apricot Pie. It’s simple, it’s delicious AND it’s orange, the national colour of the Netherlands.  Ingredients Filling 500 […]

Cherry “Linzen”Pie

Cherry “Linzen”Pie

“Linzen” means lentils in Dutch. It’s unclear where the name comes from, however it’s got nothing to do with lentils! The first “Linzen” pie was probably made in Linz, a small village in Austria, but it could also be derived from another Austrian recipe, the […]

Custard-Crumble Pie

Custard-Crumble Pie

Another Limburgian classic, custard-crumble pie! It has taken many tries with more pies chucked in the bin than i’d like to admit, but the results are a fail proof recipe that’s delicious and totally worth it. Ingredients Dough 300gr flour 50gr sugar 1 1/2tsp vanilla […]

Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

Strawberries and rhubarb go together like apples and raisins, banana and coconut, caramel and salt.. It’s one of those things you either love or hate, and I absolutely love it. The Dutch have a saying: April does what it wants and it does prove to […]

Black Plum Pie

Black Plum Pie

Happy π-day! I will be celebrating pi(e) day with this gorgeous black plum pie, or as we call it: Sjwatse proemevlaai! If you don’t like plums you can substitute them with dried apricots. Ingredients Filling 500gr dried black plums water to soak 100gr sugar Coarse sugar […]

South-Dutch Donuts

South-Dutch Donuts

Poefele and Nonnevotte.. Most Dutchies won’t even be able to tell you what these are. This is because they are a variety of the oliebollen I told you earlier about, but only eaten in the south of the Netherlands, Limburg. They are enjoyed during Carnaval, a Christian […]

South Dutch pickled meat

South Dutch pickled meat

Zuurvlees, or zoervleisj as it is called here down south, is a dish traditionally made of pickled horse meat. Nowadays the horse meat is usually substituted by beef, which only slightly alters the taste. Some of you might know this dish as “Sauerbraten”, a German […]
