Vegan Pomelo-Lemon Tart

So we probably all know and love lemons. I almost always have one in my fridge because I use them so much. We probably also all know their sisters orange, grapefruit, lime and tangerine but I got the feeling that not so many people know pomelos. This might be because they mostly grow in Israel and South Africa. I myself got to know them when a friend of mine introduced me to them a few years ago and fell in love straight away. … More Vegan Pomelo-Lemon Tart

Vegan Plum & Lemon Cake

As August came around the plums in our garden started ripening and we had them at the market for the first time this year. Exiting times for a plum fan like me! Many of them didn’t make it into the kitchen and were devoured straight away, but luckily we had enough so that I could start experimenting with them. As it’s still quite hot here in Switzerland (and probably everywhere where it’s still summer) I went for a light combo with lemon. I do find that lemon peel makes even rather sweet cakes lighter, but I also just love their taste in general. So here it is: a juicy plum & lemon cake! … More Vegan Plum & Lemon Cake

Vegan Banana-Coco-Lemon Popsicles

Since I was a kid I always made popsicles in the summer. Nothing too fancy, just a few ingredients that we had at home mixed together and put in the freezer. Such a simple pleasure. As I got older I started experimenting with different flavors. Recently I stumbled upon a really delicious mix that I wanted to share with you! It’s perfectly sweet and fresh at the same time. Plus the recipe only contains four ingredients. Just how I love it! … More Vegan Banana-Coco-Lemon Popsicles

Vegan no bake Raspberry Cheesecake

Here in Switzerland it’s been quite hot for the last few weeks and all I’ve been thinking about was how to cool off. Obviously the first thing that came to my mind was cool foods. I’ve been experimenting with no bake cheesecakes for a long time and so my go to recipe evolved over time. I’m really happy with the outcome these days so I thought it was about time to share it with you. It’s the perfect dessert on these hot summer days and I can’t tell you how addicting the base is.. I can only recommend trying it for yourself. … More Vegan no bake Raspberry Cheesecake

Fruity Elderflower Galette (with vegan option)

this weekend I finally took on the challenge to make one of those beautiful galettes I saw for months (or years?) in my Instagram feed. And it wasn’t a challenge at all – it’s so easy to make! And I bet you have all the ingredients it takes at home, as you only need flour, butter, water, salt, sugar and literally any fruit you have on hand. It almost can’t get any simpler! So if you’d like to impress someone with a fancy looking breakfast or dessert, that’s actually super easy, I’d recommend you to try a galette. My version is with elderflowers as they are all over the place at the moment and their smell is insanely delicious. Hope you enjoy it! … More Fruity Elderflower Galette (with vegan option)

Vegan Nectarine&Poppy-Seed Cake

When I was about 14 I had a really intense Cupcake phase. I remember trying out almost all of the recipes in this one book I had around that time until my family urged me to stop as they couldn’t handle more sugar and our neighbors had their faire share too. One of the recipes I tried out was with poppy seeds – which was new to me at that time. If I remember right it was with a lemon butter cream frosting, which was great but what I liked most, was the crunchy texture of the cake. So when I was brainstorming for last weeks cake recipe this came to my mind. … More Vegan Nectarine&Poppy-Seed Cake

Smoothie Ice Cubes three ways

As I live in Switzerland, I don’t have access to local exotic fruits such as mangoes or pineapples. But because I love these fruits so much I treat myself a few times a year and buy one. Sadly, they do not taste anything like when you’re somewhere where they grow locally. The closest I get to the sweetness level and taste of locally grown fruits is with dried ones. It took me a while to find some, that are not overloaded with sugar and other additives but now I’m really happy with the ones from Fru&Nus, as they taste great! … More Smoothie Ice Cubes three ways

Vegan Berry&Rhubarb-Crumble-Cake

At the moment I’m really over the moon with rhubarbs but also that berries are finally coming into season. I could basically live off of these! Last weekend the very talented Olga from …magazin was talking about crumble, and as I haven’t made one in a way to long time, I felt inspired to do so. Obviously I had to make one with rhubarbs and berries.. because, you know, it’s super delicious! But as you maybe know from previous posts, I bake for MaxMoriz (it’s a vegan ‚Mittagsbuffet‘ in Aarau, Switzerland), so it had to be a cake. I simply made a less juicy (but still juicy) crumble on top of a fluffy and light vanilla cake base. Turned out really delicious and it’s the perfect alternative if you want to have all the perks of crumble minus the mess.. Have a nice day! … More Vegan Berry&Rhubarb-Crumble-Cake

Vegan Rhubarb & Coconut Cake

Last weekend I was working at the market and there were these beautiful rhubarbs. I immediately knew, I had to buy some and cook something with them, as I just love rhubarbs! As a kid, I used to pick them fresh from the garden, dip them in sugar and eat them raw. I tried this last year again, but it was way to sour. So now I mostly make compote out of it and eat it with my breakfast bowl. But as you know, I love to bake and this is why – obviously – I came up with a rhubarb cake recipe. It’s fluffy, not too soggy or too sweet, with just a perfect amount of sourness. … More Vegan Rhubarb & Coconut Cake
