Spelt pancakes served with hot maple syrup strawberries! Ooh yes!

Yesterday at lunch, I invented these lovely spelt pancakes served with hot maple syrup strawberries for Peter & I. It was more like a brunch. We slept in & wanted something special for breakfast. So, I made these beauties! I had some strawberries lying around that I had to use up & invented this lovely strawberries in hot maple syrup to serve with these tasty pancakes! ;) Yum, Yum, I say! :)

Perfect for brunch!

Perfect for brunch!

Now, you want the tasty recipe, don’t you?

Yummm!

Yummm!

Recipe: For 10 medium-sized thicker pancakes

Ingredients:

* For the spelt pancakes:

2 organic eggs

360 ml unsweetened soy milk

140 gr organic white spelt flour

100 gr wholemeal spelt flour

2 teaspoons of baking powder

50 gr coconut sugar or less,…because the topping itself is sweet.

baking margarine or butter to fry your pancakes in

* For the strawberries in hot maple syrup:

200 gr fresh strawberries, hulled & each cut up into 2 or 4

80 ml ( 1/3 cup) maple syrup

Method:

1. In a large bowl, add eggs. Beat them loose with a fork. Add soy milk & whisk together.

2. In another large bowl, add 2 spelt flours, baking powder & coconut sugar. Mix well with a spoon. Add this mix to the bowl with beaten eggs & milk. Mix well with a wooden spoon or with a whisk. The batter will be a bit thicker & darker in color. Place a medium-sized non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Add a knob of margarine & let it completely melt. Swirl it around the base of the pan. Let the pan heat up. Pour 1 small soup ladle of the batter into the center of the pan & let the batter swirl around. Let the batter bubble well for about 2-3 minutes until you carefully flip the pancake over, to fry this side of the pancake. I test with a fork, to loosen the sides of the pancake & so you can see if the other side is brown & fried enough. Everytime, you flip your pancake over, lower your heat. This side only needs 1-2 minutes of frying. I put a heat resisted plate on low heat & turned the heat off. I put my fried pancakes on top of each other & place an upside down plate over them to keep warm.  Do the same with the rest of the pancake batter & serve them warm. When your 4 last pancakes are frying, place your cut up strawberries in a fitted cooking pot & pour your maple syrup over it. Turn heat on medium-high heat until your strawberries are soaked up with maple syrup & are denser. Stir often!The maple syrup will be a bit more syrupy but not too much. If you want it to bind more, cook it longer on the heat. When done, wait for a few minutes not to burn yourself on the hot maple syrup. Serve a pancake & pour that lovely strawberry maple syrup over your pancake. See that you have a few strawberry pieces onto your lovely pancake. Peter & I each, devoured 3 pancakes! :) The others, we ate the next morning & reheated the pancakes in the microwave. Enjoy, my sweeties! :) xxx

Strawberry rhubarb crumble served with hot Devon custard!

A few days ago, I invented this lovely strawberry rhubarb crumble! We harvested fresh rhubarb stalks from our own allotment! It was 638 gr in total! Ooh yes! I made it twice this week, each time, I used 318 gr  to use up my lovely rhubarb! :) The crumble itself is completely vegan but what I serve with it, is not! That is dairy-full so not vegan at all! You can make it completely vegan by serving a vegan hot custard! :)

Heaven!

Heaven!

You can taste the lovely speculaas cookies in the crumble top & ginger & cinnamon in the filling too! You still see pieces of cooked rhubarb in your filling, not fallen apart at all! That is what you want! :)

MMM!

MMM!

Recipe: For 7 portions

Ingredients:

* For the topping aka crumble:

100 gr cold vegan butter, straight from the fridge, cut up into smaller pieces

100 gr white spelt flour

75 gr coconut sugar

75 gr speculaas cookies ( biscoff), crumbled up into bigger & smaller pieces.

* For the yummy filling:

300 gr fresh ripe strawberries, each hulled & cut into 2 or 4

300 gr fresh rhubarb stalks, cleaned & each stalk cut up into longer pieces, each max 2 cm

1 teaspoon ginger powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 tablespoons water

75 gr coconut sugar

* To serve: Hot custard like Ambrosia Devon custard, heated up, until hot, stirring often. Or use a vegan hot custard! :)

My favorite English custard!

My favorite English custard!

Method:

1. Make your crumble topping first. Take a medium bowl & ad spelt flour & coconut sugar together. Mix well with a spoon. Now, add knobs of vegan butter & the crumbled speculaas cookies. With clean hands, mingle everything together until it looks like smaller & bigger bread crumbs! see picture! Set aside.

2. Preheat your oven to 200°C ( 400 F ) for about 10 minutes. Now, make the filling! In a medium cooking pot, add rhubarb pieces, ginger powder, cinnamon, coconut sugar & water. Mix well on low-heat until it all caramelizes & until your rhubarb is starting to soften a bit. This will be after 5 minutes or so. Turn heat off & set aside. In that same pot, add cut up strawberries & mingle together well. Try not to damage the strawberries. Place this mix into a fitted oven dish & crumble your topping on top, evenly divided. Place into the hot oven & bake for about 20 minutes. After 13 minutes, I turned the oven temp lower on 175° C ( 350 F) ! Because the coconut sugar & speculaas cookies will caramelize & the crumble topping will be darker in color than normal white sugar. So, check often! You don’t want it to burn! ;) !!!

3. After 17-20 minutes of baking, the filling will be bubbling & check with a fork to see if your rhubarb has been cooked through. My crumble was ready after 17 minutes of baking! Turn oven off & take crumble out of the oven to cool off for 5 minutes. Take lovely dessert plates & scoop a big piece of your lovely crumble with the juices on your dessert plate! Pour some of your hot custard besides it so that it ends up near & over your crumble like picture above! :) When you serve this rhubarb strawberry crumble, you surely need this hot custard alongside it! Peter, my parents & I can’t eat rhubarb crumble without it! ;) MMM!

Strawberry cream cheese ice-pops! Vegan & Gluten-free!

IMG_0521watermark-2

Yesterday evening, I invented these lovely creamy vegan gluten-free strawberry cream cheese ice-pops! I am pretty new to creating tasty ice-pops but inventing these beauties was so easy to do! I had the vegan gluten-free tofutti cream cheese in my fridge, wanted to use it & had also fresh strawberries to use up! So, just look at the yummy ingredients! :)

MMM!

MMM!

Recipe: For 5 ice-pops

Ingredients:

2 cups (270 gr) cleaned, hulled strawberries, each cut up into 2, measured when cut up

3/4 cup (150 gr) vegan gluten-free cream cheese, I used tofutti

1/8 cup (30 ml) maple syrup

1/8 cup (30 ml) unsweetened soy milk

Method:

1. Take your beloved Vitamix & place your ingredients in this order in it. Place tamper into the fitted lid & blend on full-speed & on high, by using your tamper to push the ingredients into the running blades. This will take about 10-15 seconds. Taste! You must taste the yummy ripe strawberries first & then the creamy tofutti cream cheese!

2. Pour into ice-pops until nearly all full & place the cap on. Place into fitted stand & place it all in the freezer until your ice-pop are firm. This will take at least 4 hours or so. Take one out of the freezer, about 10 minutes before indulging & keep them under a tap with running warm water for 30 seconds to 1 minute or so, on both sides :) Enjoy! You won’t be disappointed! My husband Peter gave them 10/10 yet again! ;) xxx

Home-made Vegan white chocolate coconut bars!

Yesterday, I invented these delicious vegan  home-made white chocolate coconut milk bars! The topping is super delicious aka it is home-made vegan white chocolate & the cooked cookie base is really yummy too! Between these 2 layers you taste the lovely coconut milk with added vanilla seeds! Really delicious! :)

_1340318watermark-2

The topping is not pure white because of the used vanilla seeds & used maple syrup in here! Nevertheless, they are really super! They are not too sweet either! You can really taste the coconut first, then the lovely home-made white chocolate topping & then the tasty cookie base! Ooh yes! One bar is really filling too! Grab one before you go to work or enjoy 1 or 2 with a good vegan café latte or with a lovely coconut tea, why not indulge yourself?  These are fun to make, reasonably healthy & super yummy too! :)

Raw Vegan Gluten-free lemony hemp protein smoothy!

This morning, I made this delicious Vegan & Gluten-free Lemony Hemp protein smoothy! I added a few other healthy things & drank 1 big smoothy as a nice drinkable healthy breakfast! You see?

_1320712watermark

What is Hemp protein, I hear you say?

Raw 100% organic hemp protein powder is a raw powder from hemp seeds. After the raw hemp seeds are cold pressed & gently milled, the resulting fine green powder can be easily added into your daily breakfasts, smoothies etc.

_1320729watermark-1

Hemp seeds are very healthy & an excellent source of minerals, fatty acids & proteins. It is also a healthy source of dietary fiber, chlorophyll, and minerals including magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium. This finely milled powder has a rich, nutty flavor that is ideal for smoothies, baked goods or any recipe that could use a protein and fiber boost.

But wait, there’s more!

Vegan Christmas stollen, my way!

Hey folks,

I just love the few weeks before Christmas, don’t you? It is my favorite time of the year,…ho,..ho,..ho,..!! How about you? T’s the season to be jolly,…falalalalaaaa,..la,..la,..la,..laaa! :) I put on some great old Christmas songs of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole of Ella Fitzgerald,…In Belgium, we didn’t grew up with these cool old-fashioned great Christmas songs! :(

Every year, my husband Peter & I get a real cool Christmas tree & we decorate it with gold & red balls of glory! Last year, we got this new wooden crafted Christmas Stable,…Just look at it: pretty cool, hey?

My new ecological wooden carved out Christmas Stall!

My new ecological wooden carved out Christmas Stall!

This fantastic home-made Vegan Christmas stollen was all invented by me, myself & I aka 2 years ago, but because it is so delicious & amazing, you all must make it this Festive Christmas Season! Even, if you are not a vegan, you will love it! It is a more healthy recipe with a bit of a twist! ;) A little bit naughty but nice,… Like you all know me!

An excellent food gift!

An excellent food gift!

Normally, a Christmas stollen has dried glacé cherries, nuts, candied peel & dried fruit like sultanas in them. I don’t like a lot of these ingredients so I had to make & invent one, my way. Every Christmas, I have to make this for my hubby Peter & family members,…It is not a request, it is a necessity!  I know that you all will love it too!  :)

Normally, a Stollen is a fruit cake, more like a bread, containing dried fruit and often marzipan and covered with sugar or icing sugar. The cake is usually made with chopped candied fruit and/or dried fruit, nuts and spices. Stollen is a traditional German cake, usually eaten during the Christmas season. It is made with yeast, water and flour, and usually with zest added to the dough. Candied orange peel and candied citrus peel, raisins & almonds, and different spices such as cardamom & cinnamon are added. Other ingredients, such as milk, sugar, butter, salt, rum, eggs, vanilla, other dried fruits, nuts and marzipan can also be added to the Stollen dough. Except for the fruit added, the dough is quite low in sugar. :) The finished cake or bread is mostly sprinkled with icing sugar. The traditional weight of a Stollen is around 2 kg, but smaller sizes are now available. I didn’t add icing sugar on top! I did it this way:

Vegan spelt pecan pie!

_1310855watermark-1

This morning, I made my first invented pecan pie! I saw many unhealthy recipes on the internet & on other blogs so I tried to make it much healthier & I think I succeeded! The only not so healthy ingredient in here is vegan butter! ;) This is a pure sweeter indulgent of a fine dessert, something new in flavors for Peter & me! I didn’t make it too sweet. I don’t like my tarts to be too sweet. Instead of corn syrup I used maple syrup, grade C!

The next time, I will make it into a tartlet tin with loose bottom, much easier in getting the pie aka tart out of the pan!

This is a tiny all vegan shop in the city center of Leuven. Shavt stands for Simply Healthy And Vegan Things! I was there yesterday. In a future post, I will review this tiny cool vegan shop.

But because these are a bit creamy, very healthy & a bit filling, you can easily savour these as a nice breakfast! So, these make a delicious dessert and even breakfast, how good is that, hey? ;)

A lovely flower patterned Vegan & GF ringered rhubarb panna cotta! :)

A lovely flower patterned Vegan & GF gingered rhubarb panna cotta! :)

Yesterday, I invented these tasty vegan gluten-free gingered rhubarb panna cottas! I used my flower patterned silicon baking mats to make them in! This way, when the panna cottas have set, they are easy to remove & you end up with a lovely flower pattern on the outside! Just look at this beauty! You must taste the ginger & then the rhubarb with a hint of coconut in the end. In the other same panna cottas, I didn’t taste the coconut. So maybe, next time, I will use unsweetened soy milk???? I used 5 ingredients in these beauties! :)

Vegan vanilla almond cream!

Vegan delicious vanilla almond cream!

Vegan delicious vanilla almond cream! Raw apple sliced dipped in this! Yummy!

Today, I invented this tasty Vanilla Almond Cream! All vegan goodness! If you leave out the vanilla extract it is also raw! ;) This is made by soaking whole almonds in clean water for about 48 hours!

This is a bit more thick than normal cream. You can make it to your liking & you can choose how thick you want your almond cream to be. You can add whatever you fancy with it, like cinnamon, or vanilla, like I did or raw cacao nibs or more sweet, by added 1 or 2 more pitted dates. It is up to you! :)
