Pretzel & Pear Cake, Berlin, April 2010

Pretzel & Pear Cake, Berlin, April 2010

This was my Easter Sunday breakfast, eaten al fresco at a cafe beside a pond, in the middle of some woods in the Tiergarten, Berlin. We’d already walked a few miles that morning, around the back of the zoo where we saw elephants and flamingoes through the fence, and by the time we found the cafe we were ravenous.

Huge mugs of coffee, even huger pretzels topped with great big boulders of salt and heavy, sticky cake with whole pears embedded in it.

We ate with little birds pecking at the crumbs by our feet, rosy-cheeked from the April air and energy restored for a long day walking through the city.
