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

Coconut-Strawberry-Granola

As a student I oftentimes don’t have a lot of time to prepare food. Therefore I’m always thankful for my past self if I prepared something in advance. For example homemade granola. It’s so freaking delicious, quite easy to make and stored right, keeps up to three weeks. Perfect for busy mornings (or as a late evening snack). So when I got the opportunity to create a recipe for Fru&Nus I immediately thought granola. They have a big variety of nuts and dried fruits (and they don’t add sugar, flavorings, sulfur dioxide, dyes or acidifiers) which didn’t make it easy to choose. In the end my desire for warmer days won and I chose a coconut and strawberry base and added a few other yummy nuts to the mix. It turned out perfectly chunky and crunchy. Give it a try and let me know how you like it! Happy weekend folks! … More Coconut-Strawberry-Granola

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 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
