Swedish Apple Cake Gluten Free + Vegan

IMG_3224.jpg

Hi guys! It's been a while since last. I've really missed being in the kitchen and sharing my recipes with you. But to be honest, blogging has felt kind of overwhelming lately. Like you guys probably know, I write this blog and share my recipes in 2 languages. I started out almost 3 years ago, and I was manly writing in English at the beginning. At that time 80-90% of my readers were from English speaking countries. But then I made two separate blogs and started to focus more on Swedish readers and today 70% of all the people who visits this site are actually Swedish!

Even though I love writing in English and connecting with you, from literally all over the world, Swedish is my native language and writing in Swedish takes a lot less effort for me. So what I've decided, since I really wanna continue both, is to be continuing to share my recipes here, in english, but it wont be any long posts with lots of extra information about techniques or ingredients or anything like that, simply just the recipes.

I hope you guys understand and still appreciate the recipes. If there's any questions you can ALWAYS leave a comment or just send me an email. I'll be happy to help if I can! And also, there's always this smart thing called google. Just one click away :P

  7. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Raw mango & passion fruit cheesecake

I love passion fruit! Ever since I discovered it about 15 years ago it has been my absolute favorite fruit! It is perfect in desserts combined with mangoes or enjoyed just as it is!

Hello!

I have been terribly bad at updating the blog lately... I know and I'm sorry. I have several recipes that are just waiting to be published and also lot of recipes that have been requested by you guys, this is of them actually...

This cake is one of the first cakes I ever created! More than 7 years ago, it is mostly thanks to this cake that I fell in love with raw foods and that way of baking and cooking.

This cake becomes a favorite to everyone who taste it! It is incredibly fresh. Sweet and sour with tropical flavors of mango and passion fruit! Enjoy!

Pineapple Twister swirl cake

Pineapple Twister swirl cake

This cake is something I made in the beginning of summer. It was inspired by my favorite Swedish Popsicle called Twister! I made another swirl cake in April, earlier this year! It became an instant success and I believe it has been shared over 40k times on Pinterest!
