Rhubarb Cashew Cream Cake

Rhubarb Cashew Cream Cake – A Creamy Dessert

This is a plant-product only (vegan) cake. It resembles a cheese cake, but while I had the intention to make it somewhat resemble so we can have a nice cake as dessert after dinner, I wanted something that is just very yummy in its own right. Plant-only food is like that, if you know how […]

Autumn Maple Pecan Kiss Gelato – Vermonster – Hand and Homemade

So busy I was, I couldn’t post, part of it because we had a pest infestation, which took weeks to clear. Not pleasant, but I will dwell on this later – it’s solved now for good it seems. However, I also loaned my ‘Monster‘ to a friend who was instantly convinced she needed ‘something’ like […]

Trial III Red Velvet Cake Baked Cut I

Experimental Food – My Red Velvet Cake Quest IV

IT IS RED!!! Ah – well – reddish at least!!! YAY!! It works. It is a little more subtle in colour than expected, but it works. YAY for trying out and getting a result!!! This is part IV of the quest and as always, the ‘final’ recipe will come when the trial phase is over. […]

Trial III Red Velvet Cake Pre-Bake

Experimental Food – My Red Velvet Cake Quest III

*nomnomnom all the experimental cupcakes have been eaten. Back to the baking board and making a new batch of trial cupcakes. This time I focus on the Raw Cacao, on the question whether I have mixed up the cupcakes, whether beetroot smells funny and is redder than the cacao…

Experimental Food – My Red Velvet Cake Quest II

A cake. I wanted to make a whole cake. With the wonderfully sounding ‘Ermine’ icing/frosting/filling. So I did. And it was better than the cupcakes before and that was mostly due to a change in ingredients! This is part II of the quest and again, the ‘final’ recipe will come, once I am happy with […]

Velvet Cupcakes Compared

Experimental Food – My Red Velvet Cake Quest I

Broken Glass Red Velvet (Dexter or Halloween) Cupcakes, what an awesome idea. I saw them, was intrigued and wanted to make them. But not from a cake packet and when I learned how much food colouring went in and about the myths, I started digging a little myself!

Going Nuts One More Time – Hazelnut Gelato – Hand and Homemade

Just because – a little Christmas special! This is amazing. I never knew how easy it is to make homemade gelato (which translates to ice-cream). Having an ice cream maker at hand is not even necessary, even though the results get somewhat better, but not to the point where it becomes a major problem without […]

Homemade Nutella Ingredients

Going Nuts Again – Homemade Nut-Chocolate Spread “Nutella”-Style

It’s addictive and full of energy, but not necessarily the kind of energy source you need more of. Nutella is full of simple sugars. However, about twice a year I have an episode where I eat a jar. This recipe allows me to get a bit more control over what I spread on my piece […]

Pancakes or Pikelets – wheat, dairy, baking powder free

This is my first post, so I just go with what I whipped up today. Balance and diversity is healthy and some of my friends reduce wheat/gluten/dairy in their diet for various reasons, so I was curious if I could come up with a recipe of pancakes that’s edible and has a good texture as […]
