CAKE RECIPES

And with “Cake” I mean, muffins, mugcakes, raw cakes & slices, banana breads, healthy oil-free cakes, gluten free or nut free cakes, indulgent chocolate cakes, cakes for birthdays, cookies for breakfast or afternoon tea or coffee… in case you still miss something, pleeeaaase let me know!

BREADS

And with “breads” I mean breads with delicious, tasty fillings, breads without fillings and breads in special shapes & forms. In the “Bread” category you can also find recipes for spreads, dips & sauces which can be served with all these yummy breads to make a perfect snack, side dish or even a quick lunch or speedy dinner.

SMOOTHIES

These nutrient-packed smoothies are the perfect addition to my cakes, cookies or breads and make a great breakfast, pre- or post-workout snack or can occasionally even replace a lunch or dinner in case you have one of these ultra-busy days.
