This used to be one of my favourite vegan cakes. Now, after numerous tries, I’ve found a way of re-creating it into a gluten-free version. It is quite rich and very filling. It is also proof that vegan baking can be soooo yummy! 🙂 Continue reading
With some rhubarb left over and thinking about new ways of using it, I came up with this nice combination. It actually works very well with vanilla pudding. And the strawberries are the perfect topping to make for a yummy flavour combination 🙂 Continue reading
New season, new crop. I do miss summer already, but I love how each season has it’s own very special harvest. For example figs. Yummy and such healthy little things. I’ve had a few dishes containing figs in the last week. Continue reading
I can’t deny it anymore: autumn has arrived here in New Zealand.
The raspberry vines that I planted in spring had their second harvest and have now clearly finished fruiting. So I wanted to do something special with the last ones. And this dish does them justice! 🙂 Continue reading
It is autumn time here in New Zealand. Days are getting shorter, mornings are a bit more chilly. So it is a great time to have a warm breakfast.
Rice porridge loaded with fresh local, organic fruit is my favourite breakfast when touring with my bicycle. But now I also have it for breakfast at home quite often as it is such a flavourful and warming dish – a perfect start to the day! Continue reading
No, there is no end in sight yet. I have a few more ideas for my no bake cake series 🙂
This time I’ve tried a combination of chocolate and vanilla – because I love them both! And I’ve added some sunflower seeds. They add a very nice nutty flavour. Gluten-free, vegan and without added sugar. Yum! 🙂 Continue reading
It is the season again! The season of apples! Yay!
Apple cake was one of the first vegan recipes that I learned 16 years ago. Before I baked my own apple cake I never really was a fan of this dish. But sometimes nothing tastes as good as good old home baked treats! 🙂 Continue reading
I’m a big fan of bananas! And I love their versatility! They’ve make up a substantial part of my baking as they are great to replace sugar and also add perfect moisture and texture to the dough.
So I thought it is time to try a blueberry muffin. It took me a few goes… But once I tried adding banana, they came out really good! Continue reading
When it comes to vegan bread spreads you won’t find much on offer in New Zealand. I’ve been spoiled for choice when living in Germany. You can buy so many different vegan options. Tofu with all sorts of flavouring and spices. Heaps of different luncheons, savory, as well as sweet spreads etc… Continue reading
Woohoo! I’m on a roll with my no bake cake series – you can expect to see a few more recipe variations in the next months 🙂
This time I wanted to create something mocca-ish with a bit of chocolate too. I’ve also used some hazelnuts which add nicely to the coffee flavour. Yum! Continue reading
The strawberries in my garden are starting to slow down. So, before they’re gone, it’s time to celebrate by using these pretty little fruits in a special dish! 🙂
If you don’t have a vege garden yet I can only recommend to start one! The most easy things to grow are tomatoes and silverbeet, just to name a few. And my silverbeet is thriving this season! Continue reading
I just love summer – and I love people that share their crops 🙂 Some friends of mine gave me some of their plums. I just had to use some of them to make a crumble.
And it worked out well with the first try – yay! Hard to believe that it is vegan, gluten-free and very low in sugar! Continue reading
I don’t know about you, but in my garden it is cauliflower season! Cauliflower is soooo underrated! Check it out here.
Last year I posted a cauliflower potato casserole, but I’ve decided to replace it with this much better updated version: vegan and gluten-free cauliflower potato casserole that you will not forget! 🙂 Continue reading
