Singlemade: easy homemade brioche buns

Easy brioche buns

This week is ’real bread week’ so Singlemade will be all about fresh and homemade bread. I looked for another simple and single-proof bread recipe and found these fun buns. It’s a recipe for 8 buns which might be a bit too much for a single sitting but you can easily freeze the leftovers or …

Singlemade: Homemade Nutella

Homemade Nutella

On the 5th of February it’s World Nutella Day and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by making my own Nutella. After several failed attempts I managed to make a hazelnut paste that’s not only healthier but also even better than Nutella. We haven’t bought any ever since! :-p On Pinterest …

Singlemade: Homemade mueslibars

Homemade muesli bars

The other day, I went shopping for groceries while hungry. Always a bad idea, I know, but I had convinced myself I wouldn’t give in to an unhealthy craving, so I bought a muesli bar. It took away the hunger but that doesn’t mean I enjoyed it. Already at the first bite, I thought to …

Irish soda bread

The Irish food culture revolves around potatoes. They even make potato bread. But they’re even better known for their soda bread! And as it turns out, it’s the easiest bread to make yourself, ever! Breadmaking doesn’t really match the strict Singlemade criteria. Even though the ingredients are simple enough, it’s a lot of work. Kneading …

Singlemade: homemade granola

Homemade granola

For a while now I’ve been known among family and friends for my ‘Minnemade’ granola. I’ve spent a long time finetuning the recipe and it’s been worked out to within grams and minutes. But the recipe has a lot of ingredients and takes a lot of work, so it isn’t single-proof. A poll on Instagram …

Singlemade: hangover fixer elixer

Hangover fixer elixir

It’s almost New Year’s Eve! That means toasting to the new year and maybe going a bit overboard with the drinks. The odds are that you’ll wake up on the 1st of January with a bit of nausea, a headache and a sensitivity to light… In other words: you’re hungover! I did some research on …

Singlemade: avocado-marzipan tater tots

Avocado-marzipan tater tots

Marzipan tater tots are without a doubt my favourite tater tots! 🙂 And this time of year, you can get them everywhere, because Saint ‘Nicolas’ and his ‘zwarte pieten’ are coming to town. It’s a shame you can’t get them all year round, but maybe that’s a good thing, because they’re full of sugar! I’m …

Pumpkin pie in a mug

It’s pumpkin season and Instagram is flooded with pictures of pumpkin pie for 4, 6 even up to 10 people. But a pumpkin pie recipe for 1 person is nowhere to be found. Time to make a change! 🙂 I have to admit I’d never really had pumpkin pie before, let alone made one. That’s …

Singlemade: Tips & Tricks canned pumpkin/ pumkin puree

Tips & Tricks: pumpkin puree (as an alternative to ‘canned pumpkin’)

You need to go Stateside if you’re looking for pumpkin-spiration :-). Pumpkin pie, pumpkin hummus, (scary) pumpkin soup, pumpkin chili, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pasta… There’s no end to it. But when you look at the ingredient lists, you’ll almost always find canned pumpkin there. Unfortunately, we’re not in the US and canned pumpkin is nowhere …

Singlemade: Homemade pastries (with jam)

Homemade pastries (with jam)

Making your own puff pastry dough is not Singlemade’s thing. It takes a lot of work, concentration and just the right kind of butter… In other words, it’s something for professional bakers or the advanced amateur-patissier. Because we like things quick and easy, ready-made puff pastry is an ideal solution. You can find high quality …
