Five minute preparation, amazing taste. I really needed a recipe quick and easy, without any milk :) Oh just to tell, this particular recipe passed both my mother and mother in law prejudges on vegan stuff, they simply didn’t notice any differences with my regular ones.

Time: 30 min –  5 min. preparation

Ingredients

  • 150 gr plain soy yogurt
  • 110 gr organic brown sugar
  • 100 ml sunflower oil
  • 60 ml water
  • 170 gr spelt flour
  • 16 gr baking powder
  • 1 tbs vanilla flavor or vanilla sugar
  • 20 gr cacao powder (unsweetened)

1. Pre-heat you oven at 200°.

2.In a bowl mix all ingredients ( no particolar order needed) with a whisk till everything is mixed well and without lumps.

(3.)I use silicon muffin-pan, so I don’t need to grease them, if you don’t, make sure to do this passage :)

4. With a ice-cream scoop I fill ¾ of them and cook in the oven for 30 min. No more, or they will burn or become dry!

Buon appetito and happy weekend to everyone!

Easy Vegan Banana Pancakes

vegan_pancakeWeekends start beautifully: pancakes! I find them very close to their non-vegan brothers. I hope you will enjoy them, as much as we do :) I usually prepare the mixture inside a fridge container with a top lid, so I can directly save what’s left in the fridge for the next day. It will be as good as the day before, just….darker color thanks to the banana’s oxidation.

Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:   [9 pancake]

  • 2 and ½ banana
  • 2 cups soy milk
  • 2 cups white flour ( o 1  whole, 1 white)
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • a pinch of salt

1.Smash the banana with a fork. In the meanwhile, pre-heat your non-stick pan with medium-high heat. I find no need of butter or oil.

2.Add 2 cups of milk, coconut powder, baking soda and salt.

3. In small amount, add 2 cups of flour: keep stiring to prevent any lump.

4. Put on the heat and cook until some bubbles will appear on the surface. When they do, it means they are ready to be flipped. Cook for a moment the B-side of your pancake.

They need to be brown both sides, but still kind of white and uncooked in the middle. At least, this is the way I like them!Garnish with everything you like and buon appetito!

Chocolate Cookie

chocolate_cookieSince I moved out of Italy, there is something that I really miss finding in the supermarket: cookies. We have a wide range and assortment; on the contrary, here in Germany cookies are often disappointing :( The one  you can find in a bakery are not, but often, they are quite expensive and taste awful. So I decided to self-make them more often, or at least try to.

Time:  30 minute preparation + 20 min cooking

Ingredients:  20-25 cookies

  • 110 gr butter
  • 220 gr 50% dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs ( both white and yolk)
  • 100 gr white sugar
  • 220 gr white flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

1. Melt the butter and the chocolate previously cut in small pieces with low temperature.

2. In a bowl, mix eggs and sugar with a whisk.

3. Add in the bowl: melted chocolate, flour and baking powder. Cover and let it rest in the fridge for 15 minutes.

4. Make little balls with the help of a scoop and place them on a baking sheet tray.

Cook for 20 minutes for 180°c and Buon Appetito!!!

Yogurt Cake ~ Recipe

yogurt_cakeI originally saw this recipe in one of Bendetta Parodi tv show, but I realized that I changed it during the years, to suit me better. This is one of those cake that all kids like. Very simple, but very soft and tasty, perfect for breakfast.  My husband love to cut the slice in half and put some jam in it. You can fill it also with some Nutella, but definitely it won’t be healthy anymore…^-^””

Another advantage: we don’t have to divided yolk from white albumen. It take 7 minutes to make the mix and no butter!! Buona colazione! ( have a nice breakfast!). You can use the same yogurt container as measurement cups. Always happy when I have less dishes to wash :D

Time:  7 + 35-40 min cooking

Ingredients:  for 26 cm round baking

  • 250 gr plain yogurt  ( 2 yogurt tub)
  • 300 gr white flour ( or 3 tub)
  • 3 eggs
  • 220 gr sugar (1 ½ tub)
  • ½ tub vegetable oil or olive oil ( around 4 tbs)
  • 1 bag vanilla flavored baking powder ( 13 gr ~ 1 full teaspoon)

1. In a bowl mix yogurt with 3 eggs and mix with a whisk.

2. Add sugar, stir till it is incorporated.

3.Add flour, oil, baking powder for dessert. You don’t need to sift it. Put the mix in a 26 cm round baking pan covered with baking sheet (so you won’t need extra butter and extra cleaning :).

Cook for 35-40 min for 180° static oven. Check with a toothpick if it is ready: stick it inside in the middle, if it is wet, it needs some extra minutes. Spread some powdered sugar on top of it, when it is fully cooled down.
