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 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

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
