VeganMofo 12: pancakes


I wrote yesterday about a quick solution for when  it’s to rainy to go outside in a search for bread:  you make some scones.  The following day I found  myself  troubled with the same problem.  So again I grabbed my ‘Vegan brunch‘ to see what Isa would do.  It turned out that this time pancakes would solve the problem:

VeganMofo 11: scones


Last days we’ve been having terrible weather.  It didn’t stop raining.  On fridaymorning I was getting hungry but didn’t feel like leaving the house in search for a bread.  I thought a quick baking would solve the problem.  And it did, with these scones from Vegan Brunch:

On saturday I faced the same problem but found another solution. See my post tomorrow!

VeganMofo 5: raised waffles


I only have one tradition in my life, on november the 1st I bake some waffles.  When I was a child we used to visit my grandparents on that day.  Afther the anual visit to the graveyard all the family would come together at my grandparents house.  The dough was always prepared in advance and when everyone had arrived my  grandfather would start to bake.  Usually he handled two waffle irons.

I thought this year I should make some waffles for which the dough needed some time too.  The raised waffles from Vegan Brunch turned out an excellent choice.  And if you think this photo is not a very beautifull one, well that’s because my family didn’t allow me any time for a photoshoot.  They just wanted to start to eat, right away, the waffles were just looking to delicious :-)

A very special muffin (and experience)


These look like very normal vegan muffins.  And they are.  You find the recipe for these coffee chip muffins in the Vegan Brunch.

But with one of these muffins happened something very special.

I baked them for our trip to the 3 day Pukkelpop festival.  One of the bands playing overthere were The kooks

Well, I’m not going to explain here how it happened exactly, but one of these muffins ended up being eaten by The kooks leadsinger, Luke.    And he found it very good.

Very nice, but unfortunately I made the mistake to  leave the waffles not long enough in the  iron. That is the main reason they do not look so perfect. A clear sign that I need to practice more with my waffle iron.

These waffles require little preparation and can quickly be made.
