This week was a real turmoil in the vegan scene, why? A major burger chain has launched something very special. A vegan burger! I ask myself, why not one vegan cake ? For example, such a delicious blueberry pie, because it works without any problems without Egg and milk. So dear burger chain, if you might want to add a few more vegan items to your lineup, please contact me. Joking aside, I make my Burger myself and my Cake of course. Today we have something delicious. So, let’s go (as we Bavarians say!).
I ask myself every time after I have baked a Cake baked, where it goes so quickly? Of course, I have to test one piece and then my husband (who also has to test), my brother, my father and so on and so forth. Well, I don’t need to be surprised in any case, that in spite of vegan food no six-pack comes to light. After all, we are talking about cake here and there is oil and sugar in it. After all, there are such low-calorie protein cakes, but hey! No thanks, I treat myself then but rather a really thick piece me really calories.
The blueberry cake comes with a few ingredients. Almond milk , lemon juice, baking soda, frying and baking oil, coconut yogurt, spelt flour, baking powder, raw cane sugar, lemon zest, bourbon vanilla, a pinch of sea salt and blueberries. Here it does not matter if the blueberries are frozen or fresh, both work.
ARE BLUEBERRIES ACTUALLY HEALTHY?
I can clearly answer yes to this question, because they contain:
- many antioxidants, more precisely anthocyanins (the color of the berries are virtually the antioxidants)
- up to 10 times more antioxidants compared to other fruits
- Vitamin A, C, E
- Iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium
I always recommend buying berries in organic quality, especially because they have a very thin skin. For this reason, they absorb pesticides much more intensively than fruits, with a thicker skin. The blueberries lose some of their nutritional value when baked, so just snack on a handful of fresh berries every now and then.
The simple vegan blueberry pie is:
- Pleasantly sweet
- Oil reduced thanks to coconut yogurt
Let’s get started with this juicy blueberry pie. I hope you enjoy baking and of course about a review at the bottom of this page. If you post a picture, use the hashtag #veganevibes.

- 12 g Lemon peel freshly chewed or dried
- ¼ tbspn Bourbon vanilla ground

- Preheat oven to 175 degrees and fill a king cake pan (loaf pan) with some Grease oil and dust with flour (optional). Alternatively, like me, work with baking paper and line the mold with it. Trim off any overhanging ends, otherwise they may overlap the baking pan in the oven and interfere with the baking process.

- ALTERNATIVE: Place all ingredients in order in a high-powered blender (e.g. Blendtec) and process with the dough program to a homogeneous dough.
- The dough should be neither too solid nor too liquid and should be easy to pour into the baking pan. If too firm, a little more Almond milkIf too liquid, add a little more flour.
