Hello, my friends,
its a bright evening here and I am sitting in our office with no lights on for now . That’s the good part of changing the clocks last night. I can see this warm pink glow in sky and there is a lot from it to come in the next few months. Hope spring is here , even if its still a bit cold.
Do you see that pale pink light just after the sunset? This shade of pink I love. And that is where I got the idea to make the pink icing on my Easter Egg-free buns.
I woke up this morning with lots of fresh energy. Today also the daylight saving time change took place. In my opinion this tradition is not as useful as was originally planed , but anyway.
No matter how hard I try and force myself I could never follow a food recipe step by step. I would always add something, remove something and so on. Once I read a recipe once I go into this cooking mode state where I am totally in a mood for cooking and everything I make turns out delicious.
So this is what happened today. I wanted to make something colourful so I made those buns. The recipe I read was about making easy vegan cookies , but I felt like making something softer today, so I came up with this recipe.
Here is how to make “Sunlight Buns” . You need :
1 cup of strong flour
1 cup of plain flour
1 cup of almond milk
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 cup of raw sugar
1/2 cup of melted coconut butter ( I use the cheaper version as it has a very mild flavour)
6 spoonfuls of milled flax seeds
12 spoonfuls of water (to mix with the flax seeds)
2 spoonfuls of “Camp” (chicory essence)
2 spoon fulls of cinnamon
1 tea spoon of nutmeg
1 tea spoon of cloves
1 tea spoon of ginger
For the icing
Vegan Spread (I use “Pure”)
orange essence (for the yellow icing )
5 strawberries with a squeeze of lemon juice and a spoonful of a beetroot juice for the colour
You will also need a large mixing bowl, a small mixing bowl, a spatula and 2 baking trays.
First mix the milled flax seeds with the water and let it absorb all the liquid. If it goes too dense add a spoonful or two of water to accomplish the gooey texture.
Preheat the oven to 200C for a fan oven and approx 220 for an ordinary one.
Next mix all the dry ingredients in the large mixing bowl-that’s the flour, sugar, baking soda, all the spices and mix well. In the bowl with the flax seeds add the chicory essence and mix.In the same bowl add the melted coconut butter and mix. In the large bowl where you have all the dry ingredients add the milk and the other bowl and mix . The mixture is very sticky so I kept some of the coconut oil to put on my hands in order to make the shapes with.
Then sprinkle some flour on your baking tray and place the buns. They take approx. 8 minutes to bake. They are ready when you put a wooden stick through them and it comes out dry.
To make the icing you need an ordinary food processor. Its so simple just mix 100 gr. of vegan spread with the sugar and the orange essence to make the first one. Blend for about 30-40 seconds. Then to make the pink one repeat the process after you clean the blender.
Once the buns are cold they are ready to be decorated. Use your imagination and enjoy them!
