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…)

Vegan chocolate chip banana bread – a vegan version of everyone’s favourite bake. Easy to make using storecupboard ingredients, packed with chocolate chips and topped with a blueberry glaze; this banana bread is seriously good!
Banana bread has to be my all-time favourite bake. My mum used to make it regularly when I was growing up and now I make it whenever there are blackened bananas in the fruit bowl (either that or they go into a smoothie). I have been trying to eat plant based most of the time recently so I wanted to make a vegan version of banana bread. The good news is that it is really easy to do and it is indistinguishable from the regular kind! (more…)
