Vegan Banana Bread

Vegan Banana Bread

This cake is definitely the best way to use overripe bananas. And even if you have just bought bananas that are not ripe enough, you can cook them for about 20 min in the oven at 130˚C to soften them. So no excuse to not […]

Halloween Brain Cake

Halloween Brain Cake

  It’s Halloween again !!! The only time of the year when I can bake something really gross (visually…) and the only time I allow myself to work with fondant because it does not have to look perfect. I have never been a fan of […]
