Spelt Flour Cinnamon Buns With Apple Filling
Happy breakfast people! These buns are totally winners, vegan, cinnamon filled. The perfect seasonal treat collab with @thelittleplantation and @twiggstudios two of my favourite galls. Kimberly just hit her 30k super deserved and Aimee... well she is the best stylist I know personally in UK. So grateful to know these galls . My gratitude is also going to Dearna @tohercore for making possible for a mum of 2 with a tight schedule of work and children to study Lightroom with a complete flexible and accessible online course that she developed. She also include styling, camera basics and all you need to make your feed glow with a consistent and professional look. Have a go and you will not regret it! A big hug to @akanias that is a bit unwell.
Fruit Tart
Hello folks, here my first attempt to make a crust. Forest fruits tart with a surprise ingredient in place of the bottom cream. Well, actually 2 surprise ingredients ? :). Also turned out so so good, a very lucky attempt, uplifting after I failed an apple cake ( yes an apple cake, I know plz don't tell me). This is a classic Italian cake often made in individual little tarts . I am very pleased with the crust as I didn't want to follow any recipe but make my own vegan version of the rich Italian classic "crostata". So yeah! Also pretty rustic cake for me, just to try something new! I would love to add something intelligent to my post tonight but the truth is that I have energy only to sit on sofa. After a beautiful day at Kew Gardens with treetop walk, Hive, climbing trees, and a.lot.of.running. I also bought a lovely plant sold in a compost pot! Waste free mood uplifting!!! Have a beautiful night?. Hugs, Silvia ( who doesn't need hugs? I need some extra tonight, so sending one to you too!)
Watermelon Layer Cake With Fresh Berries
Baking in this warmth? Naaaa My son favourite cake: fruit stuffed with fruit layered in fruit and topped with fruit. To go on it I make a sauce of extra virgin coconut oil, sprinkle of raw coconut sugar and some lime. Delicious and easy! Today I had a day for myself. Very needed! I cannot recall last time that happened to be all by myself! The rest of the family is having a forest adventure.Today I didn't bake, as you can see, but we have a small gathering next week and I really hope it gets a bit fresher or they will see this cake on their plates! Happy sat night!! .
Vanilla Protein Cake With Whipped Cashew Cream Frosting
I am camping again! I underestimate how much work in between two camping sessions with children. Especially if your little one decide at 4am is a good time to wake up for the day! Ahahhaha! I enjoyed beautiful sunrises anyway. But I didn't had the chance to complete my blogpost I am afraid. My apologies. I will be away for few days again and then back with some recipes and lovely collabs. Stay tuned. Now pitching...
Gluten Free Protein Almond Cake
Gluten free almond cake. Also, I would love to hear from you mothers, how do you handle kids and personal time: self care, blogging ... All that is not ruled by appointment or dead-lines. Not complaining, but I feel I need some motherhood inspiration here. Most of you are mothers and some of you have more kids than I do (@missmarzipancom !!) do you have a couple of tips on how to carve or organise you private time Thanks a million for spending the time to answer me galls.
Chocolate Layer Cake With Creamy Cauliflower Frosting
Guys I am making myself company with a cold, so my tones are lower than usual. And with so much time to waste in bed I am here writing again (oh my). Well. You see, after I moved to this country where I didn't know anybody, merely able to express myself, I started to crave community more than anything else. A part from my real life in the outer world, here, I found lovely people and a mutual, honest support. I might be super naive and yet I don't think so. I love the work of the people I follow, I take some inspirations and tag when I do. I link the props makers to support them. And I have a wonderful guidance through your response to my picks. Learning never being so fun. Said that. I choose the chocolate cake as it is easier to decor than the pink one, which will on the blog super soon anyway!!! But only after I decided what does not appeal myself about that pink piggy cake. And now it is the time, ladies and gentlemen, as I need to tag my inspirer, I am going to reveal the sexy super smooth frosting secret ingredient!! The secret ingredient is ....( probably I am the only one excited here).... : cauliflower !!!! Yes it is! Inspiration came from a semi raw cake from @unconventionalbaker genius! I changed some ingredients and the proportions to make it firm at any temperature, so you have the smoothest, lighter, firmer frosting ever!! Hope you are at least half excited than I am.
Rainbow Nice Cream Parfait
Nice cream featuring coconut cured milk, (aka yogurt) , activated raw oats and slices of banana hidden inside. Inspired from the colourful @vegankrizzleybear. I made this nice cream in a glass and not as a cake, because it needed to be less cold for my toddlers to eat it. My son was asking for so long to have some gelato... Is winter- mum would say- but do you know any toddler who would care at all. So I treated him with this recipe inspired from @vegankrizzleybear 's rainbow cake. Only I made it with the ingredients I happened to have in my house. GREEN : banana spinach hemp proteins and avocado. YELLOW : mango and banana with a sprinkle of tumerick + pinch of salt. PINK beetroot and cashew. PURPLE : achai and a sprinkle of coconut sugar. Did you know that frozen yogurt maintains the probiotics alive. So it is still alive food and is therefore more digestible than regular coconut milk. ________________________________ Lately motherhood completely absorbs my energies. My son needed some extra attentions and I am more than happy to devote myself to my little children during their early years, they will pass too soon. However I miss to post regularly my styling, I love this work so much. But I honestly cannot handle all at once at the moment. So, to cut the story short, I will redo amazing recipes of amazing people here and style them with my own taste. This should make possible to be more active and relaxed. And enjoy the styling while I learn even more! ;)
This past 30 days has been the busiest and in some ways the most stressful with ups and downs. And I am most thankful for the downs as I couldn’t learn this much without them! Yin and yang 💪🏼 This pumpkin and coffee cake with vegan mascarpone is on the blog archives and is so far my fav flavour combination. Hope you had a productive Monday! Happy week! . . . . #veganuk #feedfeed #feedfeedvegan #kovacfamily #f52grams #bestofvegan #livethelittlethings #salvialimone #bragyourplate #gloobyfood #foodphotography #whatveganseat #thekitch #healthytreats #plantpowered #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #gatheringlikethis #veganbaking #theartofslowliving #thatsdarling #darlingweekend #healthyliving #thebakefeed #foodphotography #herbivore #postitforaesthetic #healthylifestyle
My aim for Sunday evenings is coziness. During the weekend we still have much to do but somehow we pose and manage more gracefully, the hours become slow. In the evening I lower the lights, have some lounge music on the background and we just chat or play on the carpet. I even do all the cooking beforehand (Macrobiotic cooking is a lot of work). The house is calm even with two small kids. Cosiness for me is our presence to each other, the softness of our love for each other. Lights and music are just icing on cake. How is a real cozy evening for you? . . . . #veganuk #feedfeed #feedfeedvegan #f52grams #bestofvegan #livethelittlethings #salvialimone #bragyourplate #gloobyfood #foodphotography #whatveganseat #thekitch #healthytreats #plantpowered #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #gatheringlikethis #veganbaking #theartofslowliving #thatsdarling #darlingweekend #healthyliving #thebakefeed #foodphotography #herbivore #postitforaesthetic #healthylifestyle
Going through the archive I have one this lovely bergamot cake with @_twome amazing cake topper. I think I want something like that on cake for Christmas! I hope you are having a great Friday folks! I love Fridays evenings, who doesn’t!? We get late to bed with children and I prepare a massive breakfast for the next morning. Ours hit lately are millet and oat pancakes with jam and coconut oil, turmeric latte or spirulina hot chocolate. (During the week we have oat porridge and miso soup). What is your fav weekend treat? . . . #veganuk #feedfeed #feedfeedvegan #f52grams #bestofvegan #livethelittlethings #salvialimone #bragyourplate #gloobyfood #foodphotography #whatveganseat #thekitch #healthytreats #plantpowered #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #gatheringlikethis #veganbaking #theartofslowliving #thatsdarling #darlingweekend #healthyliving #thebakefeed #foodphotography #herbivore #postitforaesthetic #healthylifestyle
