Coconut Flour Banana Cake with Chocolate Rum Ganache

We couldn’t resist to put shaved coconut on top. Just for a bit of coloring. As we have many (cheeky) monkeys in the BUX office, we run out of banana’s so we had to leave them out of this recipe. We can imagine the cake taste ever nicer with the banana’s, but without it was…

Mixed berry filo millefeuille

Baking the filo millefeuille was easier then I thought it would be. As I had to make dessert for many, a made a huge one instead of cutting it all in rectangles. The mascarpone with the yoghurt, double cream, lemon and icing sugar is just divine. Instead of the pistachios we used shaved almonds ;-),…

CHOCOLATE PEANUT SLICE !

Now, making dessert in the BUX office is a big thing. Thursday dessert day is the favorite day of many BUXsters, so no pressure for me cooking that day πŸ˜‰ This week I decided to make this great recipe. I went completely over the top by adding more and more ingredients to the dish. I…

Croquembouche

Dulce de leche filling & chocolate sauce This Croquembouche didn’t really work out the way it was planned. As one of my colleagues said: a D.I.Y. dessert! As my buns turned out fine, the dulce de leche was not what it supposed to be like. I will definitely try this another time, and boil the…

Orange and cinnamon syrup cake

For sure something different, the almond meal and the buckwheat flour make the cake heavy but very satisfying to eat. And on top of that, the smell in the kitchen was like autumn: cinnamon & oranges. – enjoy – INGREDIENTS (Serves 8–10) 2 medium oranges 3 eggs Β½ cup (85g) rapadura sugar 1ΒΌ cups (150g)…

Pancake cake

I have to say, the whole thing fell apart as I was cutting the cake in smaller pieces. It was for sure my own fault as it was so fresh and the cream wasn’t thick enough. Next time the cake will need a little more rest in the fridge and the double cream will be…

Not just “a chocolate mousse”

It took a little time to set, but o boy, when it was ready to be eaten… colleagues were elbowing each other over the chocolate mouse bowl to fill their little cups till the brim and top it up with raspberries. Another Thursday dessert day feast in the BUX kitchen. INGREDIENTS (Serves 2) 200g dark…

OMG! Irish Cream Tiramisu

Not being funny, but this is the Tiramisu of the Tiramisu’s. The Queen of dessert. The most heavenly taste ever. Baileys is the trick, and of course the Sabayone or Zabaglione as the Italians say. (the eggyolks with the sugar and the booze). Do try this at home. You owe it to yourself πŸ˜‰ -enjoy-…

Chocolate fruit and nut crisp

Chocolate, orange and almond biscotti

Not So Red Velvet Cupcakes

Thursday Dessert Day! Haha, Nigella says it herself in the Method, the color of the cupcakes turn out not to be so red after all! But they are velvet, for sure. We had some little meringue toppings left so that’s what we opted for, instead of chocolate sprinkles or red sugar. They taste delicious. I…

Raw snickers bar

Many people think snickers bars can be unhealthy. But when you eat these gorgeous homemade treats full of energy, that thought will drift away quickly. We did not only add dates to this recipe but many more dried fruits, like apricots, raisins and cranberries. For the puffed brown rice we used rice krispies. RAW is…
