Dresden Stollen (Raisin Stollen)

December 18 2016 seitan is my motor 

Recently there was an interesting studio discussion on the radio. There were a couple of experts discussion marzipan. They were talking about traditional ingredients and methods of marzipan production. It was absolutely amazing. People were calling in, asking questions or sharing their methods and tricks. They sounded so respectful towards these old methods and recipes.Read more The post Dresden Stollen (Raisin Stollen) appeared first on seitan is my motor.

Ritter Sport’s New Vegan Chocolate {Review}

November 5 2016 seitan is my motor 

Those who have been following this blog for a while know how much I love everything sweet. Especially chocolate. When I went vegan (almost 10 years ago!) Ritter Sport had a couple of vegan options in Germany. Their semisweet chocolate (50% was vegan) and so were their marzipan and peppermint bars. When they changed theRead more The post Ritter Sport’s New Vegan Chocolate {Review} appeared first on seitan is my motor.

Raspberry-yoghurt-dices

April 16 2015 Veganpassion 

Raspberry-yoghurt-dices Lately I was invited over for a cup of tea. As I am too much into bakery for showing up empty-handed, I just whipped a little something. Fast and simple are these delicious raspberry-yoghurt-dices and who likes can bake them also to a cake instead of dices. Of course these little ones are full of the finest organic ingredients - and that is what you taste ;-) For a 6x6 inch (15 x 15cm) spirngform: 5 oz. (150g) spelt flour (type 1050) 2 oz. raw cane sugar (50g) pulp of a vanilla pod 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 tablespoon starch 2 tablespoon soy yoghurt 1 teaspoon maple syrup 1 dash lemon juice 1 fl. oz. oil (30ml) 4 fl. oz. water (120ml) 5 oz.  raspberries (140g) 3 oz. marzipan/­­almond paste (80g) 1-2 tablespoons raspberry jam 5 oz. chocolate (150g) 5 fl. oz. oat based cream /­­ soy cream (150ml) Mix the flour, sugar, vanilla, baking powder and starch. Stir with yoghurt, maple syrup, lmeon juice, oil and water to a smooth dough, then add the raspberries. Pour the dough in a greased and floured or with baking paper lined pan and bake it at 330°F (170°C) for about 25 minutes (test with a skewer!). Let the cake cool well. Then spread it with the jam. Roll the marzipan to a square of 6x6 inches (15x15cm) and place it onto the cake. For the ganache chop the chocolate and mix it with the cream. Warm the chocolate carefully till it's melted. Spread the ganache all around the dice then put it into muffin cups. Decor with some sugar flowers, crumbles or brittle and finally serve on the laid coffee table. Ready for a nice cosy chat?

Vegan Fl?deboller (Soft Marshmallow Treats)

March 27 2015 seitan is my motor 

Vegan Fl?deboller (Soft Marshmallow Treats)Since my last post I have been experimenting a lot with turning chickpea brine into different kinds of egg white based things. All these years there has been a cheap and easy alternative to eggs and egg replacers and most of us didn’t know about it. I still think this is the most amazing food and baking related thing I ever heard about. So while I was determined to come up with a vegan macaron recipe, a couple of my German readers asked for a recipe for schokokuesse (chocolate kisses). And yes, why not? A schokokuss is a pile of marshmallow fluff or soft (unbaked) meringue that sits on a thin wafer and is covered in chocolate. They are similar to mallomars, but taller, looking like a bowler hat without the rim. In Denmark a very similar treat is called fl?deboller (cream buns). The meringue or marshmallow fluff is piped onto a cookie or a disk of marzipan and then covered in chocolate. In Germany schokokuesse are very popular for children’s birthday parties, where they are used for eating contests: The kids are not allowed to use their hands while eating a schokokuss and the person who eats the fastest wins. The best part of this being the kid’s pictures, of course. If you have never had a schokokuss or a fl?debolle I must warn you though. When I ate one yesterday I was remembered how sweet and rich they are. Even though I have a massive sweet tooth I can’t eat more than one at a time. That’s why I decided to keep the yield reasonable here. The recipe makes about 7-8 schokokuesse, which can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a maximum of two days. Although these meringue treats are usually made with gelatin, I based my recipe on a version that did not call for a gelling agent. It is easier this way but since I was working with chickpea brine instead of egg whites, the result wasn’t as stiff and mousse like as the omni version. They do keep their shape perfectly but the texture of these vegan schokokuesse is a bit softer. It’s like whipped cream that is not perfectly stiff yet. To me it was close enough though, especially because they taste exactly like an egg white and gelatin based version – as far as I can remember. And F can confirm that these treats are perfect for any kind of birthday party eating contest: “Mum, if you eat this, the filling squeezes out and it’s all over your face!” Yup, quite true.    A couple of notes: Usually schokokuesse are made with thin round wafers. I didn’t have those on hand, so I used baking wafers with a diameter of 50 mm. If you cannot find those, you can use any kind of thin wafer or cookie as an alternative. This recipe uses hot sugar syrup that is poured into the chickpea meringue. Use heatproof equipment (bowl and whisk attachments) and work very carefully so that you don’t burn yourself. I used a handheld mixer for this but if you have a stand mixer, go for it, it’s probably better. Print Vegan Fl?deboller (Soft Marshmallow Treats) 7-8 marshmallow treats Ingredients60 ml (1/­­4 cup) chickpea brine from a can 1/­­4 teaspoon guar gum 1/­­8 teaspoon cream of tartar or 1/­­2 teaspoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/­­8 teaspoon ground vanilla 125 g (1/­­2 cup plus 2 tablespoons) sugar 1 tablespoon water 7-8 baking wafers or thin round cookies 150 g (5.3 oz) dark chocolate 1 tablespoon refined coconut oil InstructionsTo make the filling, combine chickpea brine and guar gum in a tall and narrow heatproof bowl and whip with a handheld blender for 2 minutes. Add cream of tartar or lemon juice and vanilla and whip for another 5 minutes or until them mixture is very stiff. Set aside. Combine sugar and water in a small pot and slowly bring to a boil, while stirring constantly. Cook into a syrup over high heat for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat Briefly whip the chickpea mixture up again. Now carefully pour the hot sugar syrup in while still whipping. Make sure your bowl is very steady and take care not to burn yourself. (If you have a stand mixer its probably better for this step than a handheld one.) Whip until everything is well combined. Place 7-8 baking wafers or thin cookies (about 50 mm in diameter) on a piece of parchment paper. Scoop the meringue mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip and pipe a generous amount on top of a wafer. (see picture) To make the chocolate coating, finely chop the chocolate. Combine with the coconut oil and melt in a water bath. Use a spoon to pour the chocolate over the marshmallow treats. Make sure not to miss a spot. Let rest for 5 minutes then use a dipping fork or a very thin spatula to transfer to a cookie rack. Move every 10 minutes or so so that the chocolate doesnt stick to the rack. Let dry completely.3.1 http:/­­/­­www.seitanismymotor.com/­­2015/­­03/­­vegan-floedeboller-schokokuesse/­­ Copyright (C)2015 All rights reserved. www.seitanismymotor.com P.S.

Zuckerguss Zine -- Free Vegan Holiday Baking Ebook

December 4 2014 seitan is my motor 

Zuckerguss Zine -- Free Vegan Holiday Baking Ebook  For us Christmas season starts two or three days before Christmas. Before that we dont bother with Christmas at all. We know were going to be welcomed in perfectly decorated houses and we just have to fall into line with our families schedules. We know whats going to happen and when. Theres not much to be done for us. Except for baking. My family doesnt bake much and even though my father makes vegan meals during the holidays he leaves the vegan baking to me. Our other relatives also dont do much vegan baking. So every year before we travel all over Germany I spend the last few days in the kitchen. Its messy and chaotic and I usually do five things at a time. But in the end I can leave with a suitcase full of homemade treats to share with family and friends. I am thankful for the fact that the people I care about love my food. I know vegans who have a hard time during the holidays and its sad to hear that someone refuses your cookie just because you didnt use butter. I have made those experiences too, but most of the time people go out of their way to whip up a vegan treat for me. And if they cant they ask about recipes and baking tips. Its a great way to break the ice and start a conversation about veganism. I try to do the best I can when baking and I try to give out samples to as many people as possible. I know its only a little start but I think its great when I can convince someone that baking without eggs and butter is not rocket science and that vegan cookies taste as good as every other cookie. This year I thought Id hand out some recipes with my treats. Of course everything got a little out of hand and as a result I am exited to share my first ebook with you. Zuckerguss means sugar glaze. Its what makes every cookie even sweeter and more beautiful. For me, its the best part about Christmas baking. It makes me happy like maintaining this blog makes me happy. So this book is not only for people who ask me about recipes, its also a big Thank you! for everyone who reads my blog, takes the time to comment on my entries, and tries out my recipes. I really do appreciate the time you spend here and it always makes me happy to hear back from people from all over Europe, Northern and even South America. The ebook contains 15 baking recipes plus 4 basic recipes for spice blends, a chocolate hazelnut spread, and my favourite spice cookie recipe (spekulatius). I know its probably not necessary if youre a regular reader of this blog but Im still gonna warn you: Almost all of the recipes do contain white wheat flour, white sugar and soy. Many of the recipes also call for nuts. I mostly use refined coconut oil for baking which is a very cheap staple here and (with some adjustments) a great alternative to margarine made with palm oil. Like everything on this website this ebook is free. I would be very happy if you would spread the word and please feel free to share the link to the Zuckerguss Zine with your family and friends and on social media or your blog. Developing the recipes, taking the pictures, and assembling the contents was great fun but also much work and it took a lot of time.

Marzipan Cheesecake Brownie Bars

February 4 2015 seitan is my motor 

Marzipan Cheesecake Brownie Bars This year I haven’t baked much so far. I admit that I needed a little sugar break after I had finished my e-book on holiday baking. I didn’t really crave a lot of sweet stuff until I saw a picture of a marzipan cheesecake bownie cake. I saw it and wanted to have it on our dessert plates right that moment. But that’s the problem with pictures and with the internet, too. You can stare all you want, that cake is not going to appear in front of you. Plus, it wasn’t even vegan. If you’re going to veganise a cheesecake, there are two methods, depending on what kind of cheesecake you’re making. If you are making a US-style cheesecake, vegan creamcheese is the substitute of choice because most Northern American cheesecakes are made with creamcheese. If you’re going for a German/­­Eastern European cheesecake, many people these days use drained soy yoghurt, because traditional cheesecake recipes call for curd cheese (quark), that is often drained. The recipe I was looking at was made with creamcheese and sour cream. I can get vegan versions of both these things, but I went with a mixture of drained yoghurt and cashews instead. It’s totally weird but whenever I use vegan substitutes for my recipes I feel like cheating. After going vegan I “grew up” making my own substitutes and now that most people can get them, I don’t need them anymore. And isn’t it funny that I consider creamcheese and sour cream substitutes but yoghurt and soy milk not? Yeah, it’s weird. Anyway, I veganised the cake with ingredients I am most comfortable with when it comes to baking. By comfortable I mean these are ingredients I know good enough so I can make a new recipe from scratch. If I would have used creamcheese, I probably would have had more work and maybe I would have been forced to make some changes. Or maybe I wouldn’t have liked the taste? I don’t know and it doesn’t matter. These bars came out so wonderful. They have a moist crust and the filling is creamy with a hint of marzipan. They are best eaten on the day they were made, right after they have cooled down.  If you store them in the fridge make sure to take them out one or two hours before serving. Marzipan Cheesecake Brownie Bars (makes one 20 x 20 cm or 8 x 8 inch pan) For the brownie crust: 120 g (4.2 oz or 1/­­2 cup) firm tofu 6 tablespoons vegetable oil 6 tablespoons non-dairy milk 100 g ( 1/­­2 cup) sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or 1/­­2 teaspoon ground vanilla 120 g (1 cup) all-purpose flour 1/­­2 teaspoon salt 1/­­2 teaspoon baking powder 170 g (6 oz chocolate or 1 cup chips) dark chocolate, melted For the cheesecake filling: 500 g yoghurt, drained over night (see note) 175 g (6.2 oz or 1 1/­­4 cups) raw cashews 110 g (1/­­2 cup) melted margarine or refined coconut oil 120 ml (1/­­2 cup) non-dairy milk 125 g ( 1/­­2 cup plus 2 tablespoons) sugar 150 g (5.3 oz) firm marzipan, finely chopped 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/­­4 teaspoon ground vanilla Note: To drain the yoghurt place a sieve over a bowl and a large cheesecloth over the sieve. Pour in 500 g of yoghurt and let sit in the fridge over night. There probably won’t be much drained liquid in the bowl as the cloth will soak up almost everything. The next day, scrape the yoghurt into a bowl. It should have a creamy consistency similar to greek yoghurt or sour cream. Use immediately or cover and store in the fridge until ready to use. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 inch) square pan with parchment paper. To make the crust, combine tofu, oil, milk, sugar, and vanilla in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Place flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl and mix well. Pour in tofu mixture and stir well. Fold in chocolate. Pour into the prepared pan and use a spatula to smooth down the batter. To make the filling, combine yoghurt, cashews, margarine, milk, and sugar in a blender and process until smooth. Add the marzipan and blend again. This will probably take a while. Make sure your blender doesn’t get too hot. Once the marzipan is blended in mix in cornstarch and vanilla. Pour on top of the crust and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the filling is nicely browned. If it browns too quickly, place a piece of aluminium foil on top. Let cool before serving. Tip: For decoration you can use chocolate shavings or cut out marzipan and powdered sugar.
