Chocolate dome with vanilla cream and cherry-kiwi-puree core

I hope that every one of you had some amazing Christmas days, even if it wasn’t as big as we are used to!

For my Christmas dinner I made a dessert, that I’m quite proud of!

It was a chocolate dome with a vegan vanilla cream filling with a core of cherry-kiwi-compote.

To create the chocolate half sphere, you’ll need a silicone or three-piece mould and your favourite dairy free chocolate.

Melt the chocolate (in your microwave or in a water bath), layer it in your form (not too thick though, you still want to be able to break it with a spoon later) and let it cool in your fridge.

Whilst the chocolate is cooling, you can start preparing the vegan vanilla cream.

You’ll need 4 egg yolks, 60gram sugar, 250ml of your favourite dairy free milk, 200 ml vegan whipped cream (mine was from “Schlagfix”), 3 white gelatin sheets and a teaspoon of vanilla essence.

Soften your gelatine in cold water for 5 minutes. In a pod add milk, sugar, vanilla essence and bring to boil. Put the egg yolks in a bowl and add the vanilla milk, whip until creamy. Then add the softened gelatine sheets to this mixture. Let it cool down and add the whipped cream to it. Then it needs to rest for like two hours.

If you want you can already fill it in your chocolate half spheres at this point, or just leave it in a bowl to rest in the fridge.

The last thing you will need is the cherry-kiwi-puree.

I used half a glass of cherries and two fresh kiwis (without the skin obviously). To make sure that the vanilla cream wouldn’t get ruined by the kiwi acid, I boiled the cherries and kiwis before puréeing them. Once that cooled down a bit, I used a silicon mould with very small half spheres to freeze the purée.

After everything cooled and chilled enough, you just have to assemble it. Fill the chocolate with the vanilla cream and use two of the frozen purée half spheres and put them in the middle. Then arrange on a plate, and you’re done. Easy as that. 😂

The last apple solution: Small and easy Apple Crumble

The other day I tidied up our fridge and I found an apple. That poor apple still looked okay, but neither me or Alex were in the mood to eat it like that.

The day after that I was on the phone with my mum going through some recipe books that I got from her and there it was. A recipe for Apple Crumble!

In that moment I knew what to do with my sad little apple and went on to work straight after the phone call ended.

So if you have sad apples in your house that no one wants to eat, don’t throw them out – make a nice apple crumble instead!

Little Lemon Bites

I admit, this Blog is supposed to have a lot of healthy recipes as well, but baking is just way to much fun to stop!

This time I made my Little Lemon Bites with colorful sprinkles.

You can find the full recipe at the end of this post, but the recipe asks for Buttermilk, so how convenient is it that I already wrote you a post about how to make Dairy-free Buttermilk yourself! 😂

In Germany we call this shape of Cake a “Gugelhupf“, so in this case I used a Mini-Gugelhupf silicon form, to get this shape, but really any mini cake form will do.

Super tasty Vanilla Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream

So I had a dentist appointment the other day and going to the dentist is really stressing me out! When I’m stressed – I bake! So here is my stress baking recipe.

It makes about 12 cupcakes and as I couldn’t eat all of them alone, I took them to the office, where they were gone within a few minutes.

One of the main things when baking cupcakes is, that all ingredients need to have the same temperature (best is room temperature) with that the products combine a lot easier and you can avoid over mixing a little bit better!

Feel Good Summer Treat

Yummy Ice Treats without added sugar or added flavour is hard to find for you? Well why not make it yourself?
I tried myself on a Mango Ice Pop today and look how well it turned out:

 

All you need for this very simple Summer Treat is
1 Mango
1 Banana
125 ml Oat Milk (or Almond Milk, Coconut Milk, etc) and
125 g Ice (Or cold water).
First you peel the Mango and Banana, then you throw all ingredients in your blender. Blend until smooth and then fill in your Ice Pop Form or in a little box.
Now you just need to let it stay in the Freezer for about 12 hours and voilà you have a tasty and healthy summer treat.
P.S: Why not share this awesome recipe with your friends, there is a Share Button on the bottom left corner of this post.

Super Easy and Quick Chocolate Banana Muffins right here!

Enough facts for now! I can bore you with facts later on again.

Today I want to give you a super easy and quick recipe for Chocolate Banana Muffins, prepared in a Blender!
 
Here is what you need for 12 muffins:
  • 3 large, ripe bananas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 165g almond butter (or peanut butter)
  • 85g honey
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 50g dairy free chocolate chips
Instead of the dairy free chocolate chips, you can of course break you favorite dairy free chocolate into little pieces and use that.
 
Once you gathered all the ingredients you should preheat your oven to 200°C and line your muffin tin with paper liners.
Then blend the bananas, eggs, almond butter, honey, baking powder and vanilla extract in your blender until smooth. After that you can divide that among your muffin cups and sprinkle them with your chocolate.
Your muffins are ready after they baked in the oven for about 16 – 18 minutes they should then be puffed and lightly browned.
