There’s magic within you + Vegan Apple Gallete

Happy weekending friends! Today I have a poem for you and a beautiful rustic vegan apple gallete. I have had trouble stringing coherent sentences these days amidst job applications. It takes a very long time to fill one job application and to my dismay, I haven’t heard back from any. It’s not a good feeling and it makes me feel like I’ve lost hope. But I guess with these things you have to throw your nets as far as possible and hope that one catches. One afternoon I simply couldn’t fill out an application any longer and decided to bake. I’m glad I made the choice because this apple gallete has the tartness of the apples combined with the buttery soft sweet pastry as the crust. and I love the crust. Whenever I eat a cheesecake, I always always eat the crust last, because it is the best part of the cake! The childlike nature in me refuses to lose hope in this job hunting season. Perhaps it’s something else that you’ve been working on …

There was also a part of me that was craving routine. When traveling, you lose yourself in the constant change of moments, of places, food, time, people, language. As exciting it was, I couldn’t wait to be back at home, to be able to predict what goes on in my day, to know what I was going to …

Simple Swedish Chocolate Cake Kladdkaka

Hi everyone! i hope you guys are having a relaxing weekend. Today I have this simple most delicious Swedish Chocolate Cake for you. There’s a story behind this Chocolate Mud Cake. I must say it was the highlight of my otherwise quite stressful study period. So, I was taking a study break and was walking to one of my favorite cafes in Edinburgh called Peter’s Yard. and right sitting on top of their counter was this Chocolate Mud Cake dusted with a light coating of icing sugar. Without even thinking anymore, I immediately bought a slice and the moment i bit into it ….. *(get ready for theatrical descriptions of chocolate cake)* I was greeted with taste sensation of layer and layers of smooth indulgence. First there was the bitter-sweet chocolate. I literally mean bitter then sweet, because it was the bitter dark intense chocolate that hit first, and it finished with light sweetness enveloped with smooth vanilla tones. I bit into it again and this time i could taste some espresso flavour in the …
