Cocoa Waffles with Whipped Coconut Cream

This was originally going to be red velvet waffle receipe which I was going to post – nicely timed – on Valentine’s Day.  But when I started making the waffle batter and it came to adding the red food colouring I realised I didn’t have any! I was a little disappointed at first but then […]

Black Rice Pudding with Coconut Milk

Ladies and Gentlemen, please, may I present to you my vegan, gluten-, dairy- and even sugar-free brunch treat that I have been announcing in the last two posts: black rice pudding with coconut milk. I have only once been to Thailand and only for a stopover but I still made sure I had some of the […]

Chocolate-Pecan-Oat-Coconut Cookies

I know I said that I might give you a receipe for something healthy this time… And I actually made a dairy-/ gluten-/ sugar- free rice pudding that I will tell you about very soon but I didn’t have time to photograph that one yet, so instead here’s one more naughty treat! I recently saw […]

Coconut Pancakes with Mango

I’m back in New York right now but I have one more post from my time in Berlin – funnily enough it is featuring American pancakes. I made these for my sister’s boyfriend’s birthday breakfast when we were all in Berlin this summer. We liked the idea of some fresh mango with our breakfast pancakes […]

Baked Cheesecake with Passion Fruit

For the last two weeks I have had the pleasure of having a houseguest: the lovely Annelise came over – all the way from New Zealand! We’ve known each other for over 10 years, when we met as she and her husband lived in the Big Smoke at the time. A lot has changed since […]
