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
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
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
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
Every year when we visited our great grandmother around Christmas she used to serve us Russenzopf. It’s a traditional cake in western Europe and I love it with my whole heart. It’s perfectly moist (you probably know by now that I love moist cakes), it has a delicious hazelnut filling and is a little sour on top – just how I like it. I was pretty proud how my own take on it turned out – very close to the original. If you want to treat yourself to this delicious cake, give it a go! … More Vegan Russenzopf
Every year I’m really exited for citrus season to start. I love the smell and taste of every single citrus fruit, but oranges do hold a special place in my heart. Probably it’s my fathers love for them, that he passed on to me. Every winter he would buy big bags full of oranges and store a few of them in the fridge, because they taste better cold. During advent season I squeezed the peel so it would squirt into the flame of the candles, that we lit up every night. What a wonderful scent!
So now that we started selling oranges at the market I of course wanted to make an orange cake – and so I did. I’ll promise you – your house will smell delicious (and you’re taste buds will also be delighted)! … More Vegan Orange-Ginger Cake
With the first snow laying on the ground I realized that I’m not quite ready to let go of autumn. I just love the rustling of the leaves, the crisp air and sunbeams peeking trough the trees – but of course also the cozy evenings inside with a hot tea, snuggled up to my love. So I made a cake, that captures all these feelings. Juicy, sweet pear mixed with the hearty flavor of vanilla. If you’re in for a little more autumn – go give it a try! … More Vegan Vanilla-Pear Cake
