Festive Sacher Cake

sacher_cake-5

Not the most traditional cake for holiday season, but you can never miss with sacher cake. Especially if you want to feed me :D. And it always reminds me of Vienna, a beautiful town I visited a few times in winter time. I’ sure you know where it is :). So yeah, this was supposed to be a recipe for a usual sacher cake, but then I accidentally spilled too much rum in the mixture and I decided to go with the flow and added a bit more rum than usual in the filling. Jack Sparow would love this cake. And my friends also liked it so it was gone in one day. I need to make a new one soon.

Granola over and over again

IMG_7560

After a while, I decided to make my favourite breakfast again. Time kind of stops in December. I find myself not caring as much about my college obligations as I should and instead of that, I want to meet my friends, take some time for myself, bake something good, spend an evening wrapped in a warm blanket, watching a movie. It feels like I have time to do anything. Even time to slowly eat breakfast for a change 🙂

Let’s Learn How To Make Cake Pops!

Let me clear something important first 🙂 This is not a recipe or instructions how to make cake pops. This is just a post about my decision to learn how to make cake pops and my first steps. Through time, I will post some more photos, and hopefully become better and better, until I’m able to do something like this:

Chocolate Star Banana Vegan Muffins

I’ve been having this association with bananas lately …

Well, this post won’t be about this cute yellow beings (even though you have to see the movie! ;)) It will be about something most of us also adore. Food! 😀 To be more specific, muffins. I know it’s been a long time since I posted a recipe, but I have some more I want to share with you. Some are just waiting to repeat them so I can take photos of the final product before we eat it all. Well, I didn’t allow anyone to eat before I took photos of these. It’s actually an adaptation of my Banana Bread Recipe, but I think it works excellent with muffins. It has fruit in it so technically, they can be classified as breakfast

Secret Ingredient Pretzels

Pia’s bakery is back in business, taking care of her best customers: her family, boyfriend and friends. Who ever gets to the kitchen first. 🙂 I baked these pretzels for a road trip but … Well there were no more left when we got in the car. I think that self control isn’t possible when the kitchen smells of fresh baked goodies.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Swirly Muffins

I’m a little bit late with this post, but most of you probably remember (maybe a bit blurry:)) that people around the world were celebrating Halloween on Friday. In Slovenia, Halloween in mostly celebrated by students, as it gives us a good excuse for a party, but it’s actually a new thing around here. I don’t know if Slovenian kids nowadays go trick or treating, at least I’ve never heard a knock on the door. And why is it like that? Why don’t kids around here go trick or treating? Well, it has nothing to do with health or not wanting them to eat too much candy :). We actually have another holiday, when every kid and a lot of students and grown ups dress up. It’s on different date every year, I think it has something to do with the date of Easter which also changes each year, and the best thing is it lasts more then one day, as there are different events through the week. It’s named Pust and it celebrates the passing of the winter and beginning of spring. And on this holiday, kids go from house to house, where people give them candy and sometimes some change. Which is really nice if you come from a small village, I loved that holiday when I was a kid, and even now it’s more likely that I’ll dress up for Pust than for Halloween.

Choco-Coco Vegan Pie

I’ve had these two gorgeous pie plates for about a year now, but they were just stuck in the cupboard, waiting for the perfect moment. And the inspiration finally appeared in France, where I saw a lot of mini pies, beautifully decorated and even more tasty. I got home and … Oh look! The coconut butter expires in 5 days! Let’s use it while I still can without worrying about stomach problems!:) I did some internet research to find inspiration no. 2 – some vegan pie recipes. After all, his was the first (I’m not kidding, first) time I was baking a pie and I had no clue what options I had. And I felt like eating chocolate and raspberries, one of my favorite dessert combinations. So after I got a feel what I can do and what to do to make this pie delicious I got to work and made a mess out of my kitchen but oh well, the result was worthy of all the cleaning up. And I have a dishwasher 🙂
