Another Blog birthday and therefore another exciting Blog event 🙂 This time it’s Angie from Bissen für’s Gewissen, who invited everyone to bake cakes for the occasion of her 2-year blog anniversary. Congrats to your blog’s birthday, Angie!
Thanks to Angie pushing back the due date of the competition, I had enough time to participate and I once more tried out my (rather poor) baking skills.
The result was:
Fig-Macadamia-Cakes with white Chocolate coating
This is how it goes:
Ingredients (for 10 cupcakes)
- For the dough:
- 3 fresh figs
- 1 dried fig
- 8 macadamia nuts
- 1 organic lemon
- 100g vegan margarine
- 2 teaspoons No-Egg
- 200g flour
- 2 heaped teaspoons of baking soda
- 1 Dash of salt
- For the coating:
- 200g vegan white chocolate
- 1 tablespoon vegan margarine
- 2 tablespoons plant-based cream
- For the decoration:
- 100g soft vegan margarine
- 180g icing sugar
- 1 teaspoon plant-based milk
- Vegan decoration flowers
- Cakes: Wash the fresh figs and cut them into cubes. Cut the dried fig in fine small pieces. Grind the macadamia nuts. Preheat the oven to 180°.
- Wash the lemon with hot water, dry it and grate half of its peel off. Stir it with the margarine until creamy. Mix with the No Egg powder and 4 tablespoons of water. Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt. Put the dried and fresh figs and the ground macadamia nuts under the dough.
- Put the dough in the preferred baking form and bake it in the oven for at least 20 minutes. See if the cake is done by sticking a wooden toothpick in the dough. If the dough sticks to it, it still needs baking, if it doesn’t, the cake is done! Let the cakes cool down for a bit and then get them out of the form.
- Coating: Melt the chocolate. Mix margarine and plant-based cream under it. Cover the cooled cakes with chocolate coating.
- Decoration: Mix the margarine until creamy. Then stir in the icing sugar. After a few minutes, put in the plant-based milk and mix until the icing sugar has dissolved. Then fill it in an icing bag and decorate the cakes, also by using the flowers.
- Done 🙂
I hope you like my little cakes!
Definitely have a look at the other contributions! There are some true master pieces included! Even though mine cannot keep up with them, I hope there are many more and fun blog events to come and someday I might become a master at baking 🙂
I wish you all a wonderful and delicious day! 🙂
