OK, yesterday is was sunday. And on sunday’s we have the tradition of getting up late. Going to a bakery. Buy some buns and sweet-buttery things. We have a name for them in dutch ‘ontbijtkoeken’. In a literally translation it would say ‘breakfastcookies’. But they are not exactly cookies, it’s more like rolls, filled croisants, … Of course these things aren’t vegan. So, the last months I didn’t buy them anymore for myself. But the rest of my little family was still having them.
Yesterday I decided to make a sweet, buttery, vegan thing for myself and for the rest of the family. In this way they would have a vegan sunday breakfast too. And the more vegan food you can put in other’s people mouth, the less space they have left in their stomach for non-vegan food.
Oatmeal raisin rolls
I used the recipe from ‘My sweet vegan’. They were fulfilling, sweet (but not to much) and not to hard work. So, yes, they were worth to get up early on a sunday for serving them as a good sunday breakfast.
Oatmeal raising rolls
for my birthday girl. And 14 years of receiving a lot of sweetness. I’ll let the pictures speak:
The cupcakes couldn’t have any other source than ‘Vegan cupcakes take over the world’. And the Whoopie pies are from ‘My sweet vegan’.
For the hardest french study-weekend ever, what else would satisfy then a sweet treat with lots of chocolate.
It’s the SILKEN CHOCOLATE MOUSSE CAKE from My sweet vegan!
I liked it a lot (but I’m a chocoholic anyway). Teenage judge gave it only a 7,5.
Next time I really have to do better.
Good for a 7,5 to 10.
I used the ‘ Apricot-glazed almond cupcakes’ recipe from (what else?) Vegan cupcakes take over the world. But without the apricots.
For the ganache I used a recipe from ‘My sweet vegan’. It did turn out a little bit strange. As you can see on the pictures. The teenager wanted to write some things on the cupcakes, but with this kind of ganache it would never work out. How do they do that????
For these cookies I used the recipe for “Sesame Oatmeal Cookies” from ‘My sweet vegan’. Only I didn’t had any sesame seeds in the house, but luckely enough chocolat-chips. I followed the recipe exactly but replaced the sesame seeds with the chocolate chips:
I never had a cookie which has banana in it before. Well, it’s not my favorite taste for a cookie. Maybe the combination banana-chocolate is too much. Next time, I’ll try them with the sesame seeds.
My computer is finally fixed. Well, it was already fixed on wednesday. But when I came back home with the thing, I found out that I had forgotten the adaptator. I could only go back on friday, only to returne home in the evening. The computer has been formatted, so I spend a few hours to put some essential software back. And then came saturday, my big day of turning 40.
And yes, two books from the top of my wantlist became mine finally.
I’m now a very proud owner of:
The last one was given by my teenage daughter. She’s a fan of Bittersweet.
