Thanks to a friend who made a (very similar) cake for my birthday, I really got inspired and was excited to experiment with vegan cheesecakes again. Dankeschön, Sean! And here’s what I made with the help of his recipe for my birthday celebration at home – a double-grandma-approved, vegan berry cheesecake which even has some healthy ingredients in it. It’s my favourite cake at the moment – I hope you like it, too!
Do you also like a good old, outside-crunchy-inside-soft cookie? My recent trip to the US really inspired me – I loved the cinnamon raisin bagels everywhere and I’ve also seen a lot of oatmeal products. Back at home, I thought I’d try to combine these flavours as a nice way to be reminded of my last holiday. I also aimed for a healthy, pure recipe, so I chose whole-grain flour and nuts as a base, just a bit agave syrup instead of sugar and the overwhelming natural sweetness of the raisins. It worked out perfectly!
As I’m writing this post, there’s a wonderful pink and purple sky outside – perfect time for a quick and healthy, fruity and creamy pink dessert! From September to November, figs are sold everywhere in German shops, fresh from nearby France. So I grabbed a pair to combine them with berry sorbet and soy-yoghurt. That’s it!
Quadruple C – what a name! Sorry, but I just love creating silly names for new recipes, and this is kind of a continuance of my ‘Triple C – Chocolate Cranberry Cake’. I’ve baked the Triple C for an x amount of times and I’m still lovin’ it, but to not get completely fed up with it, I felt the urge to create a new cake recipe and – really uncommon for me – without cocoa or chocolate. Well, this is the result, and for a cake without chocolate, I think it’s very delicious, almost a bit healthy and the spices get you in the mood for the colder time of year.
After trying these, you’ll wonder why you ever baked a cake in the oven. And why you used sugar. And white flour. And not fresh, raw ingredients that are actually good for you and taste amazing. I made these delicious avocado chocolate cupcakes for my family when I was home last week.
