Spiced hot chocolate with salted caramel sauce

Posted in: Food, Sweet stuff · 30 November 2017

Sometimes you have to face reality: Winter can be cruel, dark, cold and disgusting. Not even lit christmas trees, candle light and 1-m-long scarfs can help that fact. However, that is exactly where spiced hot chocolate with salted caramel sauce gets into the game. It warms our souls and has an unhealthy content of sugar, which makes us all the more happy, I am sure. Take that, winter!

Good morning Sunday, let’s make this one a lazy one – with a delicious breakfast in bed and possibly an autumnal walk in the nature later today. How does a vegan banana peanut butter bread sound for breakfast? It’s quick and easy to make, and doesn’t require many ingredients. Enjoy!

Spiced vegan pumpkin pie with whipped coconut cream

Posted in: Food, Sweet stuff · 9 October 2017

I won’t say it out loud yet another time that I love pumpkin endlessly. In fact, I would go so far to decide on pumpkin if I was to decide for just one vegetable which I was allowed to eat until the rest of my life. Instead, I will post the recipe for this spiced vegan pumpkin pie with whipped coconut cream quietly, and hope that you, too, love the bright orange vegetable and this pie as much as I do! Here’s to pumpkin!

Happy Birthday – and a goat’s cheesecake with caramelised peaches and pistachio brittle

Posted in: Food, Sweet stuff · 24 August 2017

It was my birthday four days ago (finally! Why does this only happen once a year!?), and I took the occasion to invite my family over for a birthday brunch. Among others we celebrated with a goat’s cheesecake with caramelised peaches and pistachio brittle. Trust me, this is a dream of a cheesecake – particularly thanks to the goat’s cheese!

Chocolate walnut Gugelhupf and a give-away to celebrate my book launch

Posted in: Food, General, Sweet stuff · 1 May 2017

Oh wow, it’s happening this week, on Friday, 5th of May, to be precise: My book “Happily Healthy“ is going to be released in Germany! I’m using this occasion to give away three signed copies of the book, plus – why not celebrate with a cake!? There’s actually nothing healthy about this chocolate walnut Gugelhupf, but don’t you agree that that’s entirely ok for a little celebration!?
