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

Smoothie Ice Cubes three ways

As I live in Switzerland, I don’t have access to local exotic fruits such as mangoes or pineapples. But because I love these fruits so much I treat myself a few times a year and buy one. Sadly, they do not taste anything like when you’re somewhere where they grow locally. The closest I get to the sweetness level and taste of locally grown fruits is with dried ones. It took me a while to find some, that are not overloaded with sugar and other additives but now I’m really happy with the ones from Fru&Nus, as they taste great! … More Smoothie Ice Cubes three ways

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

My Favorite Red Smoothie

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

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 Lemon 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

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 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

Vegan Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

My Instagram feed has been filled with pictures of cinnamon buns lately and since they look so darn delicious I really wanted to make them myself. But because it’s pumpkin season I also wanted to make something with pumpkins – so why not combine it? And let me tell you – if you’re only going to try out one of my recipes, I strongly recommend this one. It turned out perfectly fluffy-pumpkiny-moist if I say so myself. … More Vegan Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
