True friends bake cakes:)

Every single year my friend Bea bakes a vegan birthday cake for me and also one for my husband’s birthday. Every single time a different one. Every single time her cakes are not only super-tasty, all vegan and organic, but they always are true eye candies. I even have  created a Facebook album just for all her creations.

This year’s cake was especially pretty with it’s blueberries, coconut topping  – and a filling of avocado, peanuts and raspberries.

Bavarian Cheesecake

It looks like I am currently hooked up on sweets! I have the urge to bake a cake a week. I hope this will be over before I get really fat:)

My husband loves the classic American Cheesecake. But me, having grown up on the Bavarian countryside, I miss the typical Bavarian Cheesecake, which traditionally is made with curd cheese.

I recently  found a nice vegan recipe in Nicole Just’s La Veganista. I did change it a bit (less sugar and with whole grain) and it really turned out fantastic!

Heavenly Dessert: Avocado- Chocolate Cake

A few days ago I spend a wonderful time with two vegan couchsurfers who did come to visit in Munich. While strolling through town and dropping by at Munich’s vegan hotspots like Max Pett and Tushita Teahouse, we have been discussing on how to impress not-vegan friends with some delicious vegan desserts. I did promise them the recipe for the avocado-chocolate cake from Surdham Göb’s “Meine Vegane Küche”.

So here it comes – For Alysa & Alessandro! I hope you had a nice weekend in Munich and will come and visit us again soon!

Truly Turkish: Spinach-“Cheese”-Börek

They come in all sizes and shapes, with a huge variety of fillings: böreks are one of the most ancient elements of Turkish cuisine. If aliens would land in Turkey and have to bring back “the one dish”, it would be börek they choose.

Böreks mostly have a filling of cheese or meat. So if you are visiting Turkey as a vegan you may miss out on one of the most quintessential food Turkey prides itself. That would a pity! The solution: Do-it-yourself!
