Marbled Chocolate and Turmeric Bundt Cake {VEGAN}

Turmeric in a cake? YES! I just love the colour that this wonderful Indian spice has. And I thought it would be a great idea to spice up the traditional German Marbled Cake with turmeric. The colour of the cake batter was really yellow, however the cake itself turned out to be rather orange. Kind of a “tiger-cake” – do you agree or do I just have too much imagination?…

Coconut Macaroons {GLUTEN-FREE & VEGAN}

These vegan coconut macaroons are incredibly delicious! They were my second time using aquafaba. I first used this form y vegan and gluten-free cinnamon star cookies. I was so impressed that I had to try a different recipe with aquafaba straight away! I decided to make coconut macaroons – traditionally made with egg white. My version is vegan of course. Also there is a gluten-free option. You can make this…

Can you believe it’s Christmas in less than a month? In case you fancy some gluten-free and of course vegan Christmas cookies, I’ve got what you need! These cinnamon stars are a traditional German Christmas biscuit, traditionally made with stiff egg whites. As a vegan, this clearly wasn’t an option.

Recently I posted a recipe for a vegan gingerbread-spice cake. There was NO butter, margarine or oil in it at all. I also made these little bundles of cuteness from exactly the same recipe: tiny bundt cakes! I only used about a third of the recipe, though. I was able to make 6 tiny bundt cakes from this dough. The diameter of my silicon shapes was 7 cm. In my…

Hazelnut and Chocolate Tarte {VEGAN}

I love chocolate. However, I’ve never made a (vegan) chocolate tarte before. I was so impressed with my first chocolate tarte. It has a hazelnut crust and it is filled with a dark chocolate and coconut milk mixture. To add another, different taste the tarte is decorated with chopped almonds. Can I emphasise once again that this tart is VEGAN. If it is possible to make a vegan chocolate tarte,…

But hey, there’s no oil, margarine or butter… so let’s just pretend it’s healthy. Also it is filled with all the spices one could wish for in winter. I can’t wait to share this vegan recipe with you. I know it’s only…

Plum Cake with Crumbles {VEGAN}

I call a lot of cakes “my favourite”. However, if I had to chose one, just one cake, then it would be this traditional German Zwetschgendatschi. This cake is traditionally made with damsons, but plums work as well. The cinnamon in the crumbles gives the whole cake a little bit more of an autumn feeling.   Equipment A rolling pin Following ingredients Ingredients Plum Cake 350 g     flour 21 g        fresh…
