Hello Lovelies, now that the girls birthday celebrations are over I can move on and totally get involved and enjoy all Christmas related things. I’m currently working on recipes for a delicious vegan Christmas menu and will hopefully share them with you soon. It will include ideas for a soup, salad, main dish and desert- everything vegan of course. And I would also love to create a festive cocktail. So I might shorten my writing here a bit and post more recipes, but I mean thats what you are here for, right?!
So the first recipe I want to share with you today is for a Christmas inspired cake, that is very close to my heart. It has been my Dad’s favorite cake and I can’t even tell you how many times he made it. We all really loved it and that’s why I really wanted to create a vegan version (the original recipe was from one of those woman magazines, hehe my Dad always bought them because he liked the crosswords – and the recipes :-). I had to exchange a lot off ingredients and also improves a bit. We changed the canned apricots that the recipe asked for to fresh persimmon, since I never use canned fruits (except jackfruit)! And the result was surprisingly very delicious from the first attempt. My mom and I have been very happy and it was as good as we remembered it to be.
So here is the recipe:
The cake tastes even better on the second day and would also be a perfect desert for a Christmas dinner or makes a perfect serving for any coffee date in December. You can add as much gingerbread spice as you prefer, we wanted it to have a strong flavor, thats why why added that much. The fresh persimmon goes so well with the custard creme and the spices and cut out with cookie cutters makes such a lovely decoration as well.
I really hope I could get you in the mood to try this cake, you will not regret it. I’m always happy to see your recreations, please don’t forget to tag me in your pictures, so I don’t miss it. Or sent a picture to my email address.
Enjoy the pre-christmas season and stay tuned for more delicious Christmas recipes.
