Cherry pudding pie

Sweets - Desserts

 

I grew up in the Netherlands and in every nice mall, there is a shop Hema and Mutlivlaai and these shops had the best pies!!!! We were raised vegetarian and most of the pies had eggs (not anymore, yay!) Now living in Belgium, it’s hard to find egg-free dessert, to just have comfort food. One day I was just thinking to make it myself and where do you find inspiration to cook something you never tried, yes! YouTube!. I found a good recipe, but it contains eggs and I replaced the eggs with yoghurt and it worked. The pie was just so yummy and now my kids LOVE pie too. Parenting win!

Christmas sprinkle cupcakes!

cake, cupcakes, Sweets - Desserts

Do you feel the holiday spirit?? Well here in snowy Belgium we do. It makes me wanna bake all day. The warmth of my oven is like a warm hug. Every other week I supply cupcakes to our local vegetarian Restaurant. And these cute cupcakes were one of them.

My Christmas sprinkle cupcakes : vanilla chocolate chip cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. The Christmas trees, are just something cute I found in my favorite Action store.

Vanilla Chocolate chip Cupcake Recipe

approx.18 cupcakes

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 20gr baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla aroma (not essence)

Mix them all and scoop them out ( Tip: use an ice cream scoop to get equal portions). Bake at 170 degrees celcius for approx. 20/25 min ( Tip:  Just stick a toothpick into the center of your cupcake. If there is wet batter still on the toothpick, it needs more time in the oven. If it comes out clean, your cupcake is done)

Vanilla Buttercream Recipe

Enough for 18 cupcakes

  • 250gr Butter (room temperature)
  • 250gr powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp Cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla aroma

Beat the butter first on high. After add the icing sugar bit by bit. Add the remaining ingredients, until u get a smooth mixture.

After piping the buttercream I have dipped the top with sprinkles in a bowl ( easy and mess-free)

Happy Holidays!

Buckwheat baked donuts

Ekadasi, Sweets - Desserts

Every Ekadasi ( Grain free day) I crave for something sweet! Because lately i have been making a lot of donuts, I desired donuts so much! I accepted the challenge and tried to figure out a ekadasi/ glutenfree donut recipe.

It is based on my Glutenfree buckwheat cupcake recipe. I have a donut oven tin which I bought cheap and thought let try this. I spray some oil in the tin and piped the batter in there. Make sure to not fill it until the edges, half full is perfect!

Now I will share the buckwheat baked donuts recipe:
