Vegan ginger bundt cake with lime glaze and macerated strawberries – a moist, spicy, easy to make cake served with juicy strawberries; perfect for afternoon tea! Post sponsored by JING.
Flavour pairings is a fascinating subject – working out what ingredients go together, whether complementary or contrasting; and what should be served with what for the best possible combination and taste experience. It is a topic that I enjoy researching and experimenting with, so when the lovely people at JING Tea asked me to come up with an afternoon tea recipe to pair with their new Green Apple and Hibiscus herbal tea, I happily took on the challenge and came up with this vegan ginger bundt cake.

Vegan banana cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting – easy to make, fluffy, moist banana cake filled with smooth, creamy peanut butter and chocolate buttercream. The perfect cake for all occasions!
The weather has been so hot recently that every time I buy bananas they ripen so incredibly quickly that we are unable to eat them all before they get too ripe. For me, once they have got black spots they are just too ripe to eat as they are. They are excellent for baking with however; and an excess of blackened bananas is the perfect excuse to make this vegan banana cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting. (more…)
Orange and almond cake with chocolate buttercream – three layers of moist, flavourful vegan orange and almond cake with vegan chocolate orange buttercream, chocolate drip and candied orange slices. Easy to make and perfect for celebrations!
It was my birthday at the weekend (32 in case you were wondering) and while I am not really fussed about having a large celebration; cake is absolutely a must of course. I would happily eat pretty much any and all cake flavours which makes narrowing it down to one choice of cake pretty difficult! (more…)
Vegan chocolate sheet cake – a soft, moist, delicious chocolate traybake cake topped with rich, smooth vegan chocolate coconut milk ganache. Perfect for feeding a crowd!
If I had to pick a favourite cake flavour, I don’t think I could. But the cake that I crave most often is definitely chocolate. Specifically a dark, intensely chocolatey chocolate cake with a not-too-sweet ganache topping. (more…)
Vegan lemon blueberry rolls – soft, sticky vegan sweet rolls filled with juicy blueberries and topped with a tangy lemon glaze. With step by step photos!
When recipe brainstorming recently, I realised that it had been quite some time since I last baked any bread (Easter to be precise with my chocolate orange hot cross buns). Obviously that had to be remedied and I have been really loving blueberries recently and thus these lemon blueberry rolls were born. (more…)
Vegan fruit and nut flapjacks – easy vegan oaty flapjacks (oat cookie bars) filled with dried fruits, nuts and seeds. Perfect for snacking, lunchboxes and hiking!
Flapjacks have to be the ultimate in simple yet satisfying treats. If you are feeling low on energy then a sweet, chewy, buttery flapjack with a cup of tea is just the thing to perk you back up again. Here I have veganised them and added a tasty mix of dried fruits, nuts and seeds (mostly because I wanted to clear some odds and ends out of the cupboard but the result is delicious!) (more…)
Vegan chocolate raspberry scones – tender vegan scones made with coconut oil and filled with chocolate chunks and raspberries, topped with a raspberry glaze. Easy to make and amazing for breakfast, brunch or a snack!
While I do love a plain scone, split and spread thickly with jam and cream; sometimes a flavoured one is what I want. One that has enough taste and sweetness of it’s own that it needs nothing more than a smear of butter to really make it shine. (more…)
Blueberry pie with coconut oil crust – an incredible vegan, egg and dairy free lattice topped blueberry pie made with coconut oil pastry. Includes step by step instructions for making coconut oil pastry and lattice.
It has been an absolute age since I last made a pie, so when I found blueberries on sale last week I couldn’t help but make a blueberry pie with them. I’ve been meaning to experiment with coconut oil pastry for a while now so this also seemed like the perfect occasion to try that out too and I am happy to report that it turned out fabulously! (more…)
Vegan ginger cake – a moist, sticky, spicy sheet cake that is full of flavour, easy to make and perfect for snacking on. Egg and dairy free.
I know it isn’t really the right time of year for ginger cake, it is much more of an Autumn/Winter kind of thing; but we have been having a lot of dreary weather recently and I have just been in the mood for comforting bakes and warm flavours. (more…)
