Lots of people don’t like Valentine’s day because they consider it a commercial holiday. They don’t need a special day to show their love – they do that every day! Perhaps they just don’t like sugar-coated cards and pink hearts. But you don’t have to buy champagne, red roses or heart-shaped chocolate (you certainly can if you want to!). Try simply doing something nice. Send a friend a sweet and thoughtful card or make your husband his favourite food.
My husband’s favourite cake is a Linzertorte and he often makes it himself. There is no better way to show my love than to make him just that cake! My husband’s family is German and this is an old family recipe. It is named after the Austrian city of Linz. There are lots of variations, but we always make it with hazelnuts and raspberry jam.
