Avilia’s recipe: Vegan Fig-Macadamia-Cakes with white Chocolate coating

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:

Avilia’s recipe: Vegan Fig-Macadamia-Cakes with white Chocolate coating

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
  1. 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°.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Coating: Melt the chocolate. Mix margarine and plant-based cream under it. Cover the cooled cakes with chocolate coating.
  5. 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.
  6. 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! 🙂
