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
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)
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
As you probably know from my Instagram or previous posts, I work at a farmers market. We sell all kinds of local veggies and fruits and this week we had the most beautiful pink apples. They’re called Crips Pink, which is the weirdest name for an apple, that I’ve ever heard. Nevertheless they have a very beautiful pink peel with tiny white-ish dots on it and they have a really nice sweet taste and they’re perfectly crunchy and juicy. Normally I prefer sour apples but I thought these were perfect for an apple tart. And they were! They don’t get mushy and have a perfectly balanced taste between sweet and sour after baking. If you want to make something a little more special for easter (or for no specific reason) I’ll really recommend you trying this rose apple tart. Quite meditative to make and tastes heavenly! … More Vegan Rose Appletart
Passionfruit are weirdly beautiful fruits. Their skin has a whole color palette from red and green to dark brown or almost grey, and on the inside they surprise you with a bright yellow or orange. Even tough this wrinkled fruit with its slimy center puts off a lot of people, it hasn’t the same effect on me. I just love the taste and consistency so much! Unfortunately these little delicious fruits aren’t local where I live, so I almost never buy them. But this week I couldn’t resist them and I turned them into a crunchy-sweet cake recipe. … More Vegan Vanilla-Passionfruit-Cake
As you’ve probably noticed, I have quite the big sweet tooth but this week I was in the mood for something slightly less sweet. Even though I named this recipe ‚classic grandma bundt‘ I’ve never seen my grandmas making this cake. I guess it’s just a picture I have in my head from movies or books. But anyway. I love this bundt because it’s not to sweet and it tastes great with butter and jam (so you can eat cake for breakfast which is a pretty great start to any day). Have a lovely week folks! … More Vegan Classic Grandma Bundt
As of late I’m really looking forward to summer. As I’ve written in my previous post (this one) it feels pretty spring-ish around here and that really makes me miss summer. So in honor of my favorite time of the year I made a raspberry and coconut cake. Doesn’t it sound like summer in your ears? Also as an old german proverb says ‚sour makes funny‘ and frozen raspberries definitely are at least a tad bit sour.
Also featured in this post are flowers my boss from the market I work at gave to me. I mean.. isn’t that color just lovely? But not quite as lovely as she is.. I adore people that radiate so much love around them. Hope you’re having a great weekend and enjoy the recipe! … More Vegan Raspberry Coconut Cake
This past days have felt pretty spring-ish. The sun was out most days, birds were chirping outside my window and it was so warm. Quite early, but still, I enjoy it a lot! I’ll admit it, I’m just a warm-weather person. I can’t help but love it, even tough I know it’s not a good sign.
But let’s return to happy thoughts. As it felt so spring-ish, my body started craving fresh sweets. So this week it’ll be a very lemony lemon cake. And as I’m having more time on my hands due to my semester break I really enjoy spending more time with my shoots (therefore the overload of pictures in this post). Happy weekend friends! … More Vegan Lemon Cake
As it was my birthday yesterday, I wanted to make a special cake this week. When I was a kid, my mum asked me every year what cake I wanted for my birthday and every year I wished for her chocolate cake. When I got older, I started baking my own cakes and experimented with all different kind of flavors. But this year I had big cravings for a chocolate cake. I didn’t take my mums recipe (which is absolutely great and I love it) because I wanted something chocolatier. So I came up with my own recipe and it turned out to be my favorite cake I’ve ever made! It is so rich in flavor, perfectly moist and I wish I could eat it all day. I know this sound exaggerating but it is *so* good!
I really hope you give it a try and love it as much as I do. … More Vegan Double Chocolate Cake
For some odd reason I don’t like to drink coffee, but I love all desserts involving coffee, such as tiramisú, mousse or cakes. And for some unclear other reasons I had set to my mind that I had to make a coffee cake this week. Maybe I needed the energy for my final submissions for uni? It’s all over now (finally!) and I had the time to sit down and prepare this blogpost. Hope you enjoy it! … More Vegan Coffee Cake
