Sweet potato waffles – make your waffles healthier by adding sweet potato! These delicious waffles are light and crispy with a lightly spiced sweet flavour and the added benefits of sweet potatoes and wholemeal flour.
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…)
Vegan crepes with berry compote and chocolate sauce – easy, tender, egg and dairy free pancakes with a delectable chocolate sauce and mixed berry compote. Perfect for pancake day!
I realised today that it is very nearly pancake day and I hadn’t made any pancake recipes for the occasion. Thankfully I already had all of the ingredients needed to whip up these easy vegan crepes with chocolate sauce and mixed berry compote. (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.

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…)
A light poppy seed sponge cake with juicy fresh plums and a review of ‘Wild Honey & Rye’ by Ren Behan.
How much do you know about Polish food? Probably not a huge amount; it seems to be somewhat of a ‘lesser known’ cuisine and beyond pierogi I have very little knowledge of what Polish food actually involves. Ren Behan aims to change that with her new cookbook, ‘Wild Honey & Rye’, which was released today. (more…)
The other day I shared my recipe for tangzhong burger buns and promised I would be sharing a burger recipe to go with them; well here it is – sun-dried tomato chickpea burgers. These are totally vegetarian/vegan burgers that are easy to make, delicious and very satisfying. I served the burgers alongside some amazing home-made beer battered onion rings which were utterly addictive and so much better than shop bought ones. (more…)
Vegan lemon curd layer cake – easy, fluffy vegan lemon cake layered with vegan lemon curd and vegan lemon buttercream, perfect for any occasion!
I’ve been meaning to do some dabbling in vegan baking for a while now; veganism is becoming increasingly popular and while I myself am not vegan (I’ve been vegetarian my whole life), I do know several vegans and am attempting to cut down on dairy myself so it only seems fair to have a few vegan versions of bakes up my sleeve. (more…)
Can you believe that until I made these manuka honey coconut ice cream sandwiches I hadn’t had an ice cream sandwich since I was about 13 years old?! That’s nearly twenty years – unacceptable! I’m not sure why, I guess they just haven’t really been on my radar; which is a shame because after making these ones I was reminded of just how good they are, and how much fun they are to eat. I promise not to leave it so long this time before I make them again. (more…)
