Eierkuchen are flat cakes (German crepes/pancakes) made out of a starch-based batter. Eierkuchen are a staple I feel every country has in some kind of variation. The French have their Crepe, the Americans have their Pancake in Spain they have Tortilla, in Japan Okonomiyaki. It’s truly fascinating how food connects us! Our neighbours Switzerland and Austria call them Plinsen. In northern Germany, we call them Eierkuchen in the southern part they are known as Pfannkuchen. I am from northern Germany Berlin, so Eierkuchen it is!

Eierkuchen German Pancake Crepe

Eierkuchen is one of my childhood staples. We had them in kindergarten on very few occasions. The way I eat them is traditionally with cinnamon and sugar and apple sauce. Nowadays I put fruits or Nutella on it as well and I even made a crepe cake ones.

This is my mother’s recipe she usually has several pans on the stove and makes several at the same time. This is the Eierkuchen I grew up with it and got in my lunchbox occasionally. It brings bake quite a lot of fond memories. My classmates always used to admire me for my lunchboxes and the same goes for the lunchboxes of my little sister. My mom always spends a great deal of time on making healthy and tasty lunchboxes her kids would enjoy. I think her biggest concern until today is that we would be bored because she herself gets bored with the same dish quickly.

German Crepe

So here you go with my childhood recipe:

Valentine’s day is rolling in and I wanna share the recipe of the cake I made for last year’s Valentine’s day. It’s this moist and dense “Vegan Beetroot Coconut Cake”. And if you are looking for a fluffier cake I will have to guide you to this carrot cake I made a few week ago ;). Give this beetroot one a chance though!

Beetroot is high in fibre, is a good source of iron and folic acid and is also anti-oxidant rich. Recent studies have even shown that regular consumption of beetroot can also help lower blood pressure. So this is one vegetable that we definitely should be eating more of.

Furthermore, beetroots are a wonderful source for natural food coloring and give you this natural vibrant pink color. Depending on you it can turn your food into a deep velvet red for velvet cakes or make it a soft pink. Since coming to Sweden I have found my new love for beetroot anyway so I will probably make something beetroot related for today evening.

The almond here is very unrelated to the cake xD. I just had this one almond left and wanted to have it with the cake. Don’t feel pressured to have almond with the cake haha.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200° celsius.
  2. Peel the beets and chop each one into small pieces. Boil them in a pot.
  3. Meanwhile mix the remaining ingredients together in a bowl – except for the coconut milk. Starting with the dry ingredients and gradually adding in the moist ones.
  4. After the beets are cooked, get them out of the water and let them cool down. Afterwards put them in a blender or processor and blend them until you get a puree consistency. Add the coconut milk.
  5. Add the beetroot mixture to the other batter. Pour everything into a cake form of your choice.
  6. Put the cake into the oven and bake for around 35-40 minutes. After you put the cake out let it completely cool down. Garnish with strawberries for a sweeter and fruity cake. And leave it in the fridge when you don't eat everything.

Moist Carrot Cake Recipe

One of the nicest things in Sweden are their endless national pastry days. We had Cheesecake and Kladdkakka (chocolate cake) on my blog so far. Well, on the 3rd of February is Sweden’s carrot cake day. Naturally, Jakob and me had to meet up and make some carrot cakes!

So here comes the adapted version from inspiredtaste’s recipe as a base. We managed to make two small cakes out of the batter, six muffins and 12 flat small cookie muffins. You could probably make six additional normal sized muffins out of the flat ones.

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200° degrees.

  2. Prepare the cake batter: Mix all dry ingredients together. Add all remaining moist ingredients for the batter. Mix everything until the batter is even.

  3. Bake the cake at 200° degrees for around 35-40 minutes.

  4. While the cake is baking. Prepare the frosting. We had a rather fluid frosting since we used sour cream, if you want it to be denser, use cream cheese.

    Dense cake frosting:
    Mix the powdered sugar with the cream cheese. That’s it.

    Fluid cake frosting sauce:
    Add the powdered sugar to the sour cream. Melt 100gr butter and add to the mixture. Put in the fridge until you are ready to frost the cake.
