This winter doesn't really feel like winter but some mornings remind me for short time of fairytale winters of my childhood...
Just like on any other weekend this Sunday I was looking for new breakfast ideas, something special and still easy to make. Besides I wanted a vegan recipe. Not an easy task... but on this page I got lucky:
I took this recipe by Maria Sorokina and I was really happy with the result. So happy, that I will make them again righ tomorrow! Here is the recipe:
70 g flour
110 g brown sugar (I took 70g and they were still realy sweet.
I think I'll take only 40-50g next time)
1 tea spoon baking powder
1/3 tea spoon salt
1/3 tea spoon ground cinnamon
tiny pinch of ground nutmeg
1 tea spoon vanilla
70 g vegetable oil (rapeseed oil works great)
45 g orange juice
90 g rolled oats
60 g raisins, small sized or chopped (optional) (I took dried cranberries & dates)
30 g walnuts, chopped (optional)
Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices. Add oil, orange juice and vanilla and mix till combined. Mix in the oats and raisins and walnuts if using (highly recommended).
Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes. (I didn't chill it at all and it was no problem) Using your hands and a tablespoon form balls around 3 cm in diameter and place them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Leave 5-6 cm distance between the balls to let them rise.
Bake at 175C for 10-12 minutes. Take out of the oven. Leave on the baking sheet for additional 5 minutes and then let cool on a rack. These are all yours now.
And here are the pictures:
Even though I have been trying to eat more and more vegan lately, there are things you can not say NO to... Cheese is definitely one of these things. France is not that far away from where we live which means that we get a great choice of tempting French cheese on the farmer markets. Today we visited a farmer market in Constance which resultet in this very late and extremely decadent breakfast: French Weinbergkäse (cheese), fresh German peppercress, flower salt, brown button mushrooms, cocktail tomatoes and Italian bread... la Deutsche Vita! Or may be la vita europea?

There is hardly something as exciting as hunting for treasures at German flea markets and second hand shops. From time to time I work voluntary for a local Christian organisation. It happened so that today we visited a second hand shop to get in touch with its customers. Who would have thought that on this occasion I wll become a customer myself? I fell in love at first glance with this piece of furniture. Being a DIY freak I wil certainly repaint it but I promise to treat it with respect as this treasure easily might be around 100 years old!
Did I mention supermarket roses in the last post? Well, here they are. With some evergreens from the garden and a touch of gold they look pretty decent!
Even if it doesn't feel like winter these days, I know it's to early to think of flowers. However the Christmas deco is gone and the heart cryies for colors. I sinned and bought a 3-Euro-bunch-of-roses at the supermarket but it's another story. Luckily a couple of weeks ago on a Christmas market I discovered wonderful watercolor prints & cards by a Canadian artist Vanessa Pasqualetto who moved from Canada to Constance, Germany. Just considering buying one or two prints of hers.
Ok, the last one is not exactly a flower but isn't it still gorgeous?
oh, that moment!
