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

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 Vanilla-Passionfruit-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

Vegan Classic Grandma Bundt

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

Vegan Raspberry Coconut Cake

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

Vegan Double Chocolate 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

Vegan Coffee 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

Vegan Russenzopf

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

Vegan Orange-Ginger Cake

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

Vegan Vanilla-Pear 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
