Keeping it cozy

It’s this time of year where even a snow enthusiast like me is craving for the first springy precursors. However, sub-zero temperatures seem to have settled in Amsterdam, so a cozy weekend was calling once more. As pancakes are a loyal companion on my photos and so many of you have asked me as to how I prepare them, find my recipe below this time. Otherwise feel free to indulge in those comfy pillows, strong cups of coffee and cabin-like wood details as I’m used to these days. Rural pancake recipe for the perfect cottage day at home: 1 egg 0,1 litre of almond milk 1 tsp. chia seeds 1 tsp. hemp powder (can easily be left out) 3 tablespoons of coconut blossom sugar 1 tsp. baking powder as much flour as needed to get a viscous batter (I like my pancakes to be thick but fluffy so the mix shouldn’t spread too much in the pan) any add-on or -ins you can think of (e.g. frozen berries, fresh fruits, nuts, cocoa nibs, granola …) …

Hello October

It’s beautiful to see what lies just in front of you: hectares of nature just ten minutes by subway from the town centre of Hamburg! Hundreds of trees, deers and such fresh air. Always an autumn child, I found myself back in childhood memories. I collected chestnuts, let my feet brush the golden leaves and felt – what was natural as a child but we now call – mindful. Towards nature and towards me. I took some deep breaths in times when I really need them. It’s so relieving to keep one’s smartphone mute in the backpack, to not have a plan and just wander. And something else so tempting about cold season: Having some soul food when getting back home. In my case that was buckwheat pancakes with roasted granola. Autumn, I’m so ready for you!

Birthday Breakfast at Kalaset

I’m back from a week in Copenhagen and I had a hard timing leaving this beautiful city. From our tasteful AirBnB apartment in hip Vesterbro to wonderful shops in Norrebro to cute little cafés all over town – Copenhagen has so much to offer! Of course, it was particularly the cafés that monopolized me. And as I spent my 25th birthday on the trip, it called for the best pancakes in Copenhagen. I’m pretty sure we found them. At café Kalaset in the very town centre. Even though I’m used to avoiding the typical tourist path when travelling, the inner city was a must for a heavenly breakfast. And beautiful decoration. Come sit down with my at one of the colourful vintage tables! I had very fluffy blueberry pancakes and a soy yoghurt with fruit. So good! Look at all those vintage radios on the wall! I wish I had such a proud collection. Kalaset Vendersgade 16 Copenhagen More impressions and photos from my Copenhagen trip to come! Have a cozy Sunday, Juna

Pancake Party

Goal! Goal! Goal! What the….? Okay,that was pretty awesome. It was 10 o’clock in the night when Germany faced Brazil in the World Cup and I had felt astonishingly tense in advance. To draw the line back to food: I came home quite late due to the scoring, was craving for some food and promised my body: “You’ll get a biiig stack of pancakes in the morning.” I kept that promise. These pancakes are glutenfree, full of protein and if you want also vegan. The recipe 2 eggs (or flax-eggs if vegan) 1/2 cup of almond milk (or any other milk substitute) 1 tsp of hemp protein powder (mine is from Govinda) 1 cup of soy meal 1 cup of buckwheat meal coconut oil Stir the eggs (or flax-eggs = 1 tsp flax seeds and 2 tsp water) in a mixing bowl, then add the milk. Now mix hemp powder and meal into it little by little so that you get a thick creamy batter which won’t go runny in the pan. Warm up a pan on a medium …
