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…)

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…)

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…)

Have you ever tried making your own nut milk? It is easy to do, and while it does require some preparation as the nuts need to soak overnight, it results in a much creamier, more flavourful milk than those that you can buy at the store. You can also flavour it as you like, as I did here with this delicious mocha hazelnut milk. (more…)

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…)

I had one of those days at the weekend where you just don’t know what you are doing with yourself. I didn’t want to do any of the things that needed to be done round the house so instead I was just faffing about doing nothing at all. To pull myself out of the mood I decided to bake some cookies; and that ended up turning into a testing session to perfect my vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe. (more…)

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…)
