Vegan Chocolate Bundt Cake

Bundt cakes are Slovak Sunday’s classics. Quick and easy to make – dry and wet ingredients simply well mixed together and poured into a greased Bundt pan. My personal favorite is the plainest version of Bundt – either chocolate or marbled chocolate & vanilla cake. A piece of bundt is a real treat with a…

Krupica – Traditional Breakfast Porridge

Krupica (also known as a Cream of Wheat or Semolina Porridge) is a delicious breakfast porridge, a morning staple, and a widely enjoyed breakfast choice (and often a quick & easy dinner as well) in most households back home. I and most kids in Slovakia were served Krupica far earlier than we even knew how to…

Quick Gingerbread Roll

I came across this brilliant recipe on one of my favorite Slovak food blogs and fell in love with it right away – I had to try to make it. It resembled everything I love about Christmas (I know, it’s only mid-November), minus the ton of work. Gingerbread – this Christmas staple is a must…

Red Wine Poached Pears

Luscious & decadent dessert that can be served warm or cold. Poached Pears is a traditional French recipe that was originally developed to consume unattractive-looking fruits with a grainy flesh in a fancier way (kind of zero-waste recipe of old times, wasn’t it? 🙂 Preparation is very easy and can be very quick as well…

Silken Tofu Mousse

As always, the simplest things are usually the best one, and frankly, this is so far my favorite non-baked vegan dessert of all. Creamy and rich yet light and delicate, sweetened just a little to appreciate the flavor of ingredients like Bourbon Vanilla and dark chocolate. This dessert is texture-wise something between the mousse and creamy custard, having…

Orange & Olive Oil Muffins

Sweet and tangy. Simple yet sophisticated – Sunday morning & Friday night. That was just a few words that described those refreshing (and pretty) summer muffins that are, straightforward – enjoyed more by adults than kids. Strong flavor and aftertaste of olive oil is what makes them insanely delicious, irresistible, and kind of adult-ish. Your…

Vegan Koka Cookies

Koka Cookies or perhaps Koka Biscuits? They are full of rich cacao powder, crispy on the outside, and because of the banana, soft and chewy-ish in the center. Cookies contain just a small amount of coconut sugar and besides being vegan, they are naturally gluten-free as well. They taste best with a cup of dark…

Vegan Chocolate Mousse A.K.A Aquafaba

Delicious, a miraculous vegan dessert prepared from the most basic ingredient that’s always in stock at home-canned chickpeas. I love preparing recipes where nothing gets wasted and you use the most of each ingredient. This is a perfect example. From one can of chickpeas, you can make hummus and a delicious dessert at the same time. Wonderful, isn’t…

Flummery with a Fruit Sauce

A great dessert with a weird-sounding name will surprise you with a great taste, fast preparation and minimum ingredients needed. As at the moment we are limited with a variety of ingredients, semolina, milk or fruits can be interchanged for anything you have at home right now. My flummery recipe is made with semolina –…

Chocolate Mousse with Berries Puree

Ready in 15 minutes and so delicious. It’s creamy&rich and refreshing at the same time. A great dessert for days like these, when we should track how much sugar we intake more than usual – as we don’t move too much during this lockdown. As always use what you have, if you don’t have berries,…
