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
So it was spring equinox and our forests start blooming and getting all green again. This means a very happy me! Obviously I had to go for a long walk to fill my lungs with that fresh spring air and soak in all those soft sunbeams. On our way trough the woods, we passed a spot, where my brother and I used to drive around with our bikes. It’s such a magical place with a lot of very small paths and every spring it was filled with a ton of wild garlic and flowers. We harvested quite a bit of the garlic on the way home and I made a fresh garlic pesto that night. I think it tasted even a bit better, because it was from this magical childhood place. … More Creamy Wild Garlic Pesto
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
As I named this blog ‚Breakfast Stories‘ originally, I thought, why not actually share one of my favorite breakfasts? I’m a big fan of red smoothie bowls (other colors are great too, but no-one can beat the red one), so I’ve made quite a few of them over the years. My recipe is ever-changing but is sticking with me for over three months now, so I thought it was about time to share it with you. It’s very simple and doesn’t need fancy ingredients but it’s oh-so delicious! It also gives me the feeling of a light spring day which I was looking forward to for at least these three months. … More My Favorite Red Smoothie
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
