• Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake

    Once again lemon. Once again poppy seeds.But what can you do if this is the ultimate combination during the summer months? This cake is for those days when it’s hot, you don’t want to move too much but want something sweet that isn’t ice cream. It is easy to make as you pretty much only have to mix all ingredients together, pour the batter into a loaf pan and wait an hour for it to be baked perfectly. Then you will have a slice of increadibly lemony fluffiness in your hand. Try it. Basic ingredients, simple process, amazing result.

  • Rhubarb Crumble Cake with Lime Cream

    Just at the end of rhubarb season, I finally manage to get this recipe up on the website. During the past weeks I have been trying all different kinds of rhubarb cakes and pies, some yeast based, some with crumbles, one with a vegan meringue on top. I love the sour taste of rhubarb that makes it such a wonderful companien to very very sweet things. And after a lot of trials, I finally found the most perfect recipe.

  • Summery Layered Lemon Poppy Seed Cake with Blueberry and Black Currant Jam

But after having tried one slice of this wonderfully summery cake, I immediately went back for seconds – and thirds… This cake was borne, more than anything else, out of the “need” to procrastinate.

And even if I manage to sit down and write for a few hours, I definitely need some diversion…

  • Marbled Peanut Butter Muffins

    What a wonderful recipe to kick off this new project of mine. These muffins are without a doubt as delicious as the name suggests. And they are so easy to make that even within the busiest of weeks there always seems to be enough time to make a batch. And this will definitely make any busy week better! As I am still new at this, please let me know whether the instructions are clear and sufficiently detailed. And I would love to see a picture of how these muffins turned out for you. — As you are probably the only person reading this, Celeste, these last two sentences are directly…

  • This blog

    Because of popular demand (ha), this will become a blog filled with tasty and (mostly) simple plant based recipes. While it seems like there are a gazillion of them out there already, my goal with this blog is, not only to share my recipes but also to simply celebrate vegan life and the amazing food possibilities it comes with. Oh, and of course, this blog will also act as a distraction from (and procrastication tool for) my master thesis. Enjoy, malinski.
