Cheat’s Portuguese-Inspired Custard Swirls

Cheat’s Portuguese-Inspired Custard Swirls

I’m almost embarrassed to share this, as it isn’t really a recipe at all. Created in the spirit of Eurovision – this year held in Lisbon and on the tellybox tonight – this is a thrifty three-ingredient, no-effort and strictly tongue-in-cheek homage to the famous […]

Cardamom & Vanilla Scones With Lemon Curd

Cardamom & Vanilla Scones With Lemon Curd

What pops into your head when you think about traditional English baked goods? I immediately think of Victoria sponge, closely followed by sticky toffee pudding, shortbread and scones! Scones oozing with jam and cream is the version we all know but I’ve really enjoyed playing […]

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies – Vegan

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies – Vegan

Prepare to be popular because these bakery shelf-worthy chocolate chip cookies are universally loved by young and old! Both soft and crispy, vanilla scented and packed with chocolate chips – these gorgeous cookies are the definition of I-can’t-believe-they’re-vegan dreaminess! This is a bit of a cheat […]

Very Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes

Very Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes

Cupcakes. The trend that never really fell out of favour. They are everywhere – incredible sky-high swirls in every flavour and colour from pastel to neon, yet the simplest and fairest of them all, fluffy vanilla sponge topped with a slick of creamy vanilla frosting […]

Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! (Happy St David’s Day!) I love these traditional little Welsh treats which are synonymous with 1st March and the prospect of spring just around the corner. Despite being sold every day of the year in every bakery in Wales, it’s Welsh law (sort […]

Icelandic ‘Happy Marriage’ Cake | Hjónabandssaela

I’d been itching to try this recipe for ages. Look at the whimsical name! I was instantly intrigued. It’s a bit of a misnomer really though; it isn’t a cake at all, at least not in the traditional sense. It’s actually the perfect cross between […]

Veganising Nigella: The Ginger & Walnut Carrot Cake

Veganising Nigella: The Ginger & Walnut Carrot Cake

Sound the fangirl klaxon: Nigella Lawson is a bit of an idol of mine. I love reading her books and it feels a bit slack simply calling her a food writer – frankly, she’s the doyenne of modern food literature. As a child, my grandparents […]

Chunky Best-Ever Vegan Macaroni Cheese

Chunky Best-Ever Vegan Macaroni Cheese

Macaroni cheese was always one of my favourite dishes when I was vegetarian, and I wasn’t about to give it up when I ditched dairy! I make this quite a lot for my daughter when she has a friend over for tea and I’m always […]

Happy New Year! How’s January going for you so far? (Doesn’t it feel like the longest month EVER?!) I hope 2018 will be a great year for all of us. January has kicked off with a record-breaking number of sign-ups for the annual Veganuary – […]

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding – vegan // slow cooker

It’s nearly Christmas! How’s your December going so far? I know I say every year how much I enjoy the festive season but I really do. Twinkling fairy lights and the smell of cinnamon wafting through the air makes me feels so warm and cosy […]
