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…)
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!

Sweet potatoes have got to be the most versatile vegetable. I use them all the time, in everything from curries to cakes; and most lately, in these delicious sweet potato waffles. (more…)
Vegan chocolate chip cookies – crispy round the edges, chewy in the middle, loaded with chocolate chips and really easy to make; these cookies will become your new favourite recipe!
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…)
Vegan lemon almond cake with coconut whipped cream and macerated strawberries – a light, moist vegan lemon and almond cake topped with a cloud of coconut whipped cream and sweet macerated strawberries. The perfect cake for Spring!
This vegan lemon almond cake is really quick and simple to make, but it looks very pretty topped with it’s cloud of whipped coconut cream and mound of juicy strawberries; no decorating skills required! It would be a lovely cake to make for occasions such as Easter or Mother’s Day, not that it needs a special occasion to be baked at all. (more…)

Thick, creamy vegan gingerbread hot chocolate – rich and lusciously thick vegan hot chocolate with gingerbread spices; refined sugar free.
The weather has been pretty grim recently – wet and cold and miserable. As such, I’ve been drinking rather a lot of hot chocolate in the evenings. I am usually happy to have a regular (almond) milk and hot chocolate mix one but occasionally I am in the mood for something a bit more decadent which is when I make this thick, creamy vegan gingerbread hot chocolate. (more…)
Vegan lemon curd -a sweet, creamy, intensely lemony spread that is totally vegan and ready in under ten minutes!
I first made this lemon curd some time ago now to fill my vegan lemon curd layer cake, but I felt like it deserved it’s own recipe post. Recently Damian has been trying to cut down on dairy as it isn’t very good for his stomach (a problem that a lot of people have I think), so I have been trying to join him. Seeing as I am already vegetarian, this has meant that I have been making a lot more vegan recipes so expect to see more of them on here! (more…)
