After numerous more or less successful tests, I'm finally able to post the delicious recipe of these vegan matcha and almond shortbreads. Let me tell you, vegan baking is not always easy, especially when you try to invent new recipes from scratch.
Looking for the perfect vegan sweet treat to indulge in without regrets? Well, I think I’ve got you covered. This recipe is super simple and foolproof, the cookies come out of the oven with this perfect fluffy texture. Mmmmmmmh! I always do big batches whenever I cook, not because I'm afraid of starving but because I can enjoy leftovers for a longer period of time! I’m definitely not a morning person and really enjoyed having these cookies on hand for breakfast for an entire work week.
I have this thing with Italian food that does not fade away. Baking this flavourful cake virtually brought me back to Sicily where we spent our holidays a few years ago. I have so many culinary memories from this place, the almond wine, the pastries and pasta were just mind-blowing. Have you ever been to Italy? If you’re a foodie like me (and if you NEED sunshine), you should definitely add this country onto your bucket list.
Hello lovely people! Wondering how to transform your weekend breakfast into a lavish experience!? Well, the good news is: it’s easier than you think! Fresh orange juice, a delicious homemade vegan London Fog (here is the express recipe for it: Earl Grey from Taylor’s of Harrogate + a few drops of almond milk + 2 tbsp. maple syrup) and fresh fruits are a great start to prep your morning feast. Baking your own buns will just be the cherry on the cake...
I used to keep my baking power in the kitchen cupboard for special occasions. These days are gone! Since starting this blog, I enjoy a very diversified diet and baking lavish cakes on a regular basis is just part of my landscape now. Francois doesn't have a sweet tooth so he isn't really of any help getting them eaten so we always end up giving away half of my yield. But what do you want, it's a nice feeling!
My first time eating carrot cake (well actually zucchini cake) was in the beginning of fall a few years back in Quebec. We’ve got family there. Our host had replaced carrots with zucchinis because she had so many in her garden that she didn’t know how to get rid of it. Side note: it tastes almost the same as carrot cake and the ingredients are very similar. I remember asking her right away the recipe because her cake was scrumptious and ended up eating half of the cake on my own...
One of the best feelings in the world is to wake up on a Sunday morning with the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. I’ve followed the recipe of the Vegan Queen – Angela Liddon – step by step, except for the vegan cream cheese frosting as it would have been too sweet for me. Her blog “Oh She Glows” is a gold mine of delicious recipes I will probably never get tired of. What about you lovely people, what are your favorite cooking blogs!?
I’ve kept my breakfast routine very simple lately and for a good reason….I can’t really stand complex/strong tastes in the morning and toasted bread with vegan butter is about the only thing I can swallow. However for the weekends, I love starting the day with something a little bit more fancy than just bread while I watch my favorite French show (On n’est pas couché) to keep myself up to date for my next Skype session with my family!
