Easter is just around the corner and while I love a simple carrot cake for Easter brunch, this year I want to make something less traditional and extra special: Mini tiered cakes made of a lemon poppyseed batter, covered in a simple lemon-sugar icing. May sound complicated, but they are much easier to make than you think ;) Continue Reading…

Inspired by my favorite healthy snack bar from the UK, Nakd’s “Cashew cookie”, I wanted to create a raw carrot cake version for Easter.

It does not have to be carrot cake. I just thought that this was appropriate because you know Easter – bunny – bunnies eat carrots :D
