Vegan Blueberry Tiramisu

Vegan Blueberry Tiramisu

This, my friends, could possible be one of the best desserts I ever made!

I am not joking the feedback I got was amazing. And guess what Its NOT my recipe.

The blueberry bit is, but the rest belongs to Amrita www.crazyvegankitchen.com or @crazyvegankitchen on Instagram.

Ever since I saw her original Vegan Riramisu recipe I really wanted to make it but was too lazy to make a sponge for it. Well then I saw her Match Tiramisu and I was totally in love with it. I had to make it. 

Unfortunately not everyone loves matcha I had to come up with something else, heres where the blueberries come in. My freezer was full of blueberries (Im the kind of person who buys them every time I do the shopping, which is quiet often) so I thought lets try blueberries.

Guess what it turned out beautiful. I made it for a birthday party and I came home with one (they are big portions those glasses I had).

I was very tempted to devour it myself (remember I am still on my sugardetox) but had a tiny teeny bit of the cream and gave the rest to my cake loving colleague.

So here we are thats the story of the Blueberry Tiramisu and below all this talk is the recipe.

Enjoy

Rocher Cakes

Rocher Cakes

Although I am on my sugardetox I couldnt help but make cakes. I just love making cakes and I much too rarely make chocolate cakes.

So here is one that ive been thinking of making for a long time but never got to it.

The Rocher Cake (or tiny cakes in this case).

This will make about 5 small cakes depending on the size of your tins. I have made several different sizes so I wont give you guidance on the measurements.

As always if you recreate anything you see on my blog please tag me on Instagram. Id love to see your creations.

Sugarfree Pecan Hazelnut Biscuits

Sugarfree Pecan Hazelnut Biscuits

Ok so Im on a sugardetox. Did you ever try that? Its not that tough at all. Maybe because I dont eat much refined sugar anyway but I was told Ill have a crash about 10 days into it…and I havent yet. Ive been doing it for about 12 days now so we will see right?

Anyway the toughest thing about it is that you cant have fruit and you cant have dried fruit. But because most my desserts have dates in them I thought it wasnt great, so I had to come up with a biscuit that has no dates in it and here it is.

It is absolutely delicious and totally sugarfree (except the naturally occuring sugars in nuts) and just the right thing for a midday snack.

I hope you like them and if you do make them please tag me on Instagram Id love to see your creations.

Instructions
  1. Place the first seven ingrediets in a food processor and blend until combined and sticky. Refrigerate until firm.
  2. While the cookie dough is firming up, blend the remaining ingredients in a food processor until very creamy. Also refrigerate. It has to be frm enough to pipe but not too firm.
  3. Now roll the dough between two sheets of cling film, it will be hard to roll out and will crumble. Get a cookie cutter and cut an even amount of biscuits.
  4. Remove the beetroot filling from the fridge and pipe onto half of the biscuits leaving a bit of an edge. Place the other half of the biscuits on top and press gently down.
  5. Warning you will have some filling left but hey you can always spread it on toast and have pink toast right. These will ot keep for long, maybe 4-5 days as the filling will go sour. So enjoy within that time.

Gingerbread Cheesecake with Lebkuchen Pieces

Gingerbread Cheesecake with Lebkuchen Pieces

I am so so late with this. christmas is over and i am only now posting a Gingerbread Cheesecake recipe. I am actually not sure you can get the ginger biscuits and German Lebkuchen anywhere this time of year, but maybe you can try and if not youll just have to wait until next year. Ah well sorry.

So what is different in this cheesecake from the one I posted a while ago.

Well first of all it is less healthy and loaded with sugar from the biscquit base and also the Lebkuchen pieces. The other difference is of course the addition of a biquit base and the Lebkuchen pieces inside. I though it just made such a lovely surprise when you take a bite and there are small lebkuchen pieces that you didnt expect.

Anyway guys if you make it as always let me know how it turned out and also if you were able to sort the christmassy ingredients.
