Lemon mousse pie

I have made this pie only once so far, but I already know it will be one I will be making lots of times again ๐Ÿ™‚ Made this when we had friends over for dinner, and everyone loved it! Beware: making this pie requiresย advance preparation (soaking the cashews and cooling the pie and the topping in the fridge so it can stiffen). You need a large springform pan (23 cm / 9 inch). Ingredients vegan lemon mousse pie For the crust 1 + 1/4 cup finely grated vegan crackers (230 g or about 7 packs of double crackers, I usually use kamut crackers). 3 tbs sugar 4 tbs melted cocount oil 1 tbs soy milk For the pie 1/2 cup cashews, soaked until very soft (I ususally leave these to soak overnight) 400 ml coconut milk 1/2 cup almond or soy milk 1/2 ts agar agar powder 2/3 cup sugar 3 tbs coconut oil 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice 2 tbs lemon zest 2 ts vanilla extract For the topping 3/4 cup water 1 tbs …

Vegan chocolate cream

This is a very simpleย and straightforward recipe for chocolate cream. You can use it as topping for cupcakes, on top of pies, or in smaller portions as a dessert on its own. And it’s without refinedย sugar, you can choose between maple syrup or agave syrup, whichever you like best! Important though is that it requires advance preparation. That is, it needs some time in the fridge to set. At least half an hour, but better still an hour is best to make it stiff, espcially if you want to use it for cupcake topping. Silken tofu is very smooth tofu. It is much softer and ‘creamy’ than regular tofu. You can easily cut regular tofu into cubes, this doesn’t work with silken tofu. In Belgium, I’ve only seen it available in organic shops. Ingredients vegan chocolate cream 1 package silken tofu (400g), drained of excess liquid 1/4 cup soy milk 2 tbs agave or maple syrup 1 ts vanille extract 12 ounce (370g) vegan black chocolate chips Preparation Crumble the silken tofu in a blender. …

Frangipane muffins (almond) with apricot jam

These are definitely one of my favourite muffins, and I have yet to encounter the first person who doesn’t like them (except for the odd person here and there who doesn’t like jam filling)! Frangipane cakes are available in practically every bakery in Belgium, so the almond cakeย isย very well known around here. Most often, they are also filled with apricot jam.ย These vegan frangipane muffins have a lighter texture than the traditional (non-vegan) frangipane cakesย sold in Belgian bakeries. A perfect muffin to convince those that remainย skeptic ofย vegan baking and insist that you need eggs or dairy for traditional baking recipes. Not! You can easily replace the traditional sugar with the same amount of coconut sugar, giving you a dark brown coloured muffin. Ingredients frangipane muffins with apricot jam (vegan) 1 cup + 2 tbs all-purpose flower 1 + 1/2 ts baking powder 1/2 ts salt 1/3 cup almond meal 1/3 cup canola oil 3/4 cup (coconut) sugar 1/4 cup yofu (soy yoghurt) 2/3 cup almond (or soy)ย milk 1 ts vanille extract 2 ts almondย extract 12 ts …

Coconut lime muffins

These are my new favourites! I’ve only made these coconut lime muffins once so far, but I’m sure I will be making them many more times again! A pretty straightforward classic muffin recipe, with a tropical twist. Close your eyes and think lime cocktails, beaches with coconut trees, and enjoy your muffin ๐Ÿ™‚ Ingredients coconut lime muffins (vegan) 1 cup all-purpose flower 1/2 ts baking powder 1/2 ts baking soda 1/4 ts salt 1/3 cup coconut oil 3/4 cup sugar 1 cup coconut milk 1/4 cup soy milk 1 ts vanille extract 1 ts coconut extract 1 tbs or more grated lime zest 1 cup dried shredded coconut Preparation Preheat the oven to 180ยฐ (350ยฐ). Put paper liners in aย muffin tin (12 muffins). In a smallย bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan. In a large bowl, mix the sugar with the melted coconut oil. Add the wet ingredients: coconut milk, soy milk, vanilla extract, coconut extract and lime zest. Add theย dry ingredients …
