Granola Crust Tarts with Lemon Curd Filling
Next to actually learning how to bake, writing a cookbook also has the advantage of expanding your tastebuds. One thing I didn’t know before starting to work on Fuck Diet! was how much I actually love lemon as part of a cake. It all began as a research project on how to do vegan pasteis de nata or pasteis de nata at all for that matter. As I used to live in Portugal and was already back in Austria for a while, I really started to miss my favourite mini-cakes. But instead, another tart caught my eye and led me to discover a recipe for vegan lemon curd, that I use not only to make tarts, but also to dip any cookie within reach into the leftover curd for the next week or so.
Kiwi Chocolate Cake
Ladies and gentlemen! May I introduce you to my favourite cake ever? I see this one as my ultimate staple cake. The chocolatey smoothness, zesty kiwi and down to earth coconut semolina make it a birthday favourite but I have to admit I have a hard time not eating it straight out of the pan every time I get to make it.
Grandma’s Vegan Peach Coconut Cream Cake
My Grandma does a mean, mean Peach Cream Cake. Why is it mean you say? Well because it makes me lose every last ounce of self control I have ever had in front of cakes. I am talking of having 6-7 slices as opposed to two or so, so I couldn’t resist the temptation to get her recipe and to try to make a vegan version of it.
