The best vegan recipe I’ve tried so far |Glücksgeist

I am obsessed with the little blog of vegan. This girl has so many amazing recipes and it’s so hard to choose the next one I want to try. But I decided to go for the lemon cupcakes and this was one of the best decisions ever.

A chocolatey Valentine’s day collab |Glücksgeist

Angela from LifeofAngela asked me on Instagram if I wanted to join her Valentine’s day baking and of course I had to say yes. Personally I don’t celebrate Valentine’s day, but who doesn’t love to eat some baked goods especially if it’s chocolate.

We both have Rosanna Pansino’s cookbook so we really wanted to use a recipe from it. Angela went for the chocolate cupcakes and I had to follow because chocolate is my favourite. I am really excited to see what Angela made out of this recipe.

I thought a little bit on how I should decorate my muffins, but my family and I actually aren’t the biggest fan of icing believe it or not. Mainly because my icing never turns out that good so I thought as I am baking for the day of love I actually treat my family, so I didn’t go for icing in the end. Instead I used these super cute muffin cases. My sister got them for me a few days ago, she’s just so cute.

The are in this lovely pink with hearts on them, so perfect for Valentine’s day. They also turn a boring brown muffin into a little piece of art, so I was really happy with them.

My family absolutely loved these and they were gone in a day. I think there’s no better present than something baked because it shows the effort you put into it.

Don’t forget to check out Angela’s cupcakes! Thank you so much Angela for doing this with me, I had so much fun!

Cupcake cones

I saw iJustine and her sister making these and loved the idea behind them. These cupcake cones look so so adorable. I really wanted to make my own and I had so much fun doing this. In summer I eat ice cream every single day but now I don’t fancy something so cold anymore, the solution: cupcake cones. They look like ice cream but taste like cake, just amazing.

Making cupcake cones is so easy. You take your ice cream cones and place your muffin batter in it. And then you bake them in the oven like normal muffins in a muffin tin. After that you can add your icing. I wanted them to look like a real nice soft ice.

I died my icing purple and piped it onto my cones. After that I added a few sparkly unicorn sprinkles for some finishing touches. I am so happy with them! I think they turned out so amazing.

My family absolutely loved eating them. These cones are a perfect little snack as well as an amazing party snack idea. And you can take some pretty cool pictures for Instagram with them.

Blueberry muffins

Quelle: Blueberry muffins

I love baking and I love trying out new recipes. But there’s one recipe I shared here in the past which is one of my favourites. Blueberry muffins. I spotted some blueberries in my supermarket and just couldn’t resist buying them to make some blueberry muffins and they turned out so amazing!

Because of that I wanted to share my recipe again with you. I hope you enjoy and let me know if you can recognize this post.

My best friend and I love to bake together. We discovered our love for Cupcakes about three years ago I would say. Within those three years we tried out a lot of different recipes. Last year we didn’t do a good job at baking anymore… . The cakes just didn’t go well, so we said we do a little break. But now: THE BREAK IS OVER <3. And before my amazing friend goes away for one year we need to bake so much we have never ever baked before (didn’t tell her that … :D).

So we tried out a recipe for Blueberry muffins and omg, they are so delicious :). I’m so happy they turned out good because I wanted to make some for sooo long and finally managed it.

  • 150g sugar
  • about 8g vanilla sugar
  • 2 eggs

Then add the eggs and mix.
Mix the flour and baking powder in an other bowl and add the flour mixture bit by bit to the main mixture in turns with the milk. (Or you put everything in one bowl like we did :D).

After that you need to add the blueberries and carefully fold them into the mixture, so that they don’t break.

Line up a muffin tin and put about one tablespoon of mixture into each muffin case.

Then bake the cakes for 25 minutes at 150 to 175 degrees Celsius.

And then ENJOY 🙂
