Hi and welcome to Domestic Gothess!
I'm Hannah - professional blogger, aspiring food photographer, cake fanatic and goth behind Domestic Gothess.
I live in Birmingham UK with my husband Damian (who helps out a lot with the techy side of the blog and testing my cakes!), my Jack Russell Ringo (who doesn't help much but likes to watch me cook), and my cat Skitz (who doesn't help at all and mostly likes to walk across my photo set-ups and knock things off the counter top...).
I started Domestic Gothess in 2015 as a way to document my baking and cooking creations and after a lot of hard work I am now fortunate enough to call it my full-time job.
I was mostly vegetarian most of my life and became vegan in 2018, therefore most of the earlier recipes you will find on this site are vegetarian and all newer recipes are vegan. All vegan recipes are clearly labelled as such.
All of my old non-vegan recipes aren't going anywhere, but all recipes going forward, as well as all of my recent recipes, will be entirely vegan.
What Can You Expect To Find On Domestic Gothess?:
Baking is my passion and I'm on a mission to show people that vegan baking isn't difficult, you don't need lots of weird ingredients to make delicious things, and it tastes just as good (or even better) than non-vegan baking! My recipes are designed to satisfy everybody!
If you want to make delicious, easy vegan cakes, cookies, pies, bread, desserts and more then you are in the right place!
One cannot live on baked goods alone however, so you will also find recipes for delicious vegan meals, snacks and drinks.
All of my recipes are well tested to ensure that they work and I never sacrifice on taste to make something vegan – all of my vegan recipes are as good as (or better than!) the original versions.
As far as possible I try to only use readily available ingredients, or ones that can easily be found online. But as I live in the UK I can only speak for what is available here.
Due to popular demand I provide US cup conversions for all of my recipes, however I cannot guarantee their accuracy. I strongly recommend investing in a digital scale; cups are far too inaccurate for baking and you will get better and more consistent results if you weigh your ingredients instead.
