Chocolate cake with caramel frosting recipe

I remember making a chocolate cake for my birthday last year, and I don't think I've had it since then. So, this was long overdue. I baked my sweet potato because I think it's tastes best cooked this way, but if your chocolate cake cravings are too strong you can always just boil it. You... Continue Reading →

Eating our weight in vegan food | Food festival

It's that time of year again when our town has a food and drink festival. This year they had an entire vegan hall. Do I hear some oohs? There were about 5 vegan stalls out of 30 or so total, plus loads of other stalls had vegan options, so we had a field day of... Continue Reading →

Rhubarb and orange cake loaf recipe

I hope you like rhubarb because here's a second rhubarb cake to indulge in. This time paired with orange, because when I looked up what goes well with rhubarb, orange popped up. And, yes, they do go very nicely together. Makes: ≈10 slices Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 45 minutes Ingredients For 1 portion of... Continue Reading →

Rhubarb and ginger cake slice recipe

I like to cook a much larger batch of stewed rhubarb and just use 75g for the cake because what's better than stewed rhubarb eaten straight out of a bowl? Makes: 9 slices Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 30 minutes Ingredients For 1 portion of stewed rhubarb: 75g rhubarb, peeled and sliced 15g sugar... Continue Reading →

Courgette muffins recipe | 2 ways

Savoury cakes are a thing. I actually dig the savoury muffin more than the sweet one. Although, it's hard to compete with broccoli! I made the sweet muffins again recently and added sultanas for something extra, and they were very tasty. So, if you want to amp up the texture a bit, feel free to... Continue Reading →

Almond slice recipe

It's been a while since I've baked a cake (well, a month) so these were definitely overdue. These went down a treat with the fam, even the non-vegan members! Makes: 15 slices Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 35 minutes Ingredients For the pastry: 150g self-raising flour 45ml olive oil pinch of salt 3 tbsp water For... Continue Reading →

Visiting a food festival

Our little town had a food festival the other week. I went down without much expectation of there being anything suitable. But boy, was I surprised. There was so much vegan food! And so, I treated myself... This was from a raw plant-based stall. All their cakes looked so good, but I couldn't resist a... Continue Reading →

Apple and poppy seed cupcakes recipe

I was in the mood for a raspberry sponge cake, but when I planned to make it the shops didn't have any raspberries (disappointing, I know). Move on to option 2: poppy seed cupcakes (probably just as good as the raspberry cake would've been, and easier because there's no cream!). To make it a bit... Continue Reading →

Carrot and walnut cake recipe

I'm so pleased with how this turned out. Carrot cake is my partner's, and now my, favourite baked good. He doesn't like nuts though, but he still found this delicious. My record was eating three slices in one day–I don't regret it at all! I found that the coconut cream began to separate when left... Continue Reading →

Blueberry Bakewell Tart Recipe

It's been so long since I've had a Bakewell tart, so after my partner suggested that we make one, naturally, I was really looking forward to having it again. We just used blueberries out the freezer (originally from the garden-there were loads so they've lasted a while!) but fresh will work too. I would've put... Continue Reading →
