This recipe has been a family staple since my mom received it as a newlywed from her landlady and friend. It’s also versatile: my sister likes it best without the cherries, while my husband prefers it with mixed fresh fruit. The panel is inspired by my grandma, who never decorated for the holidays the same way twice, but whose favorite color was plaid!
Hand made illustration, I'm rememberying my feeling of pick up cherries when I was a child, I just to love to go to my grandaunt's house and picked the most delicious cherries, so my illustration has all the things and lovely family that were there.

In Azerbaijan, food is the center of everyday life and people here love eating. Since, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, they know how to add variety to it. For starters a well prepared tea is a must. Usually, it`s a black tea that can be flavoured with a slice of lemon, cloves or wild thyme. Other basic elements of a Azerbaijan breakfast are bread and cheese. Tendir is a bread made in a clay oven. Lucky you if you had a chance to try it right after it was baked! Cheese is another important part of the breakfast. Usually you can try 3-5 varieties during the meal. Also, you can enjoy freshly baked bread with farmed made butter and honey. Yum! And, for sure, you have to save some room for the main dish of the breakfast: Pomidor Yumurta - eggs and tomatoes, sautéed in butter. After that a long Azerbaijan breakfast should end with a cup of of the black tea in a traditional tea cup - armudu.
Food Memories -My dad was the cook in our house growing up, always a home cooked meal each evening, I don't think I knew about take-aways until I left home. Puddings were served on Saturday evenings and Sunday lunchtimes either rice pudding or apple crumble and then every now and again, as a treat, Manchester Tart.
This cake is a very fond memory of mine and it is also a local speciality from where I grew up, in the south west of Germany. I tried to translate its name „Kirschplotzer“ and I hope it conveys what it is: a juicy fruitiness combined with cloves and cinnamon that add a mysterious hint of christmas to the late spring season when cherries are abundant and everyone who owns a tree is trying to pack as many as possible into this wonderful recipe – I hope someone tries to bake it!
