Lemon Curd Blondies

Lemon Curd Blondies

I have my Mum to thank for inspiring this recipe. Thank You, Mum! Lemon curd blondies weren’t even on my radar until she mentioned them. Now that I’ve made them, I want to know how did I ever live without these little squares of sweet, […]

Malabi Rose & Raspberry Vegan Pavlova

Malabi Rose & Raspberry Vegan Pavlova

Stockpile the snacks and prepare to sofa-shimmy to the beat: Eurovision is here again in all its deliciously awkward and sequinned glory! I don’t really like the term ‘guilty pleasure’, but can safely apply it to Eurovision, which is simultaneously spectacular and toe-curlingly bizarre. I’m […]

Speculaas-Spiced Marzipan Muffins

Speculaas-Spiced Marzipan Muffins

Hope you’re all enjoying a lovely Easter break! I made these very recently using marzipan leftover from a fruit cake and they were so delicious I couldn’t wait to share the recipe! If you’re not a fan of marzipan this definitely isn’t for you, but […]

Vegan Pecan Pie

Vegan Pecan Pie

My husband turned 50 last week. Part of me is still picking myself up off the floor and dusting myself down from the shock of being married to a fifty-year-old; the other part of me simply laughs in the face of age; it’s never bothered […]

Perfectly Fluffy Banana Pancakes – Vegan

Perfectly Fluffy Banana Pancakes – Vegan

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to share my beloved pancake recipe with you, but then it’s fair to say I’m a notoriously slow blogger. I hope you’ll agree that this one is well worth the wait! We love a pancake breakfast more […]

Double Chocolate Cookies // Vegan

Double Chocolate Cookies // Vegan

Did you take part in this year’s record-breaking Veganuary? Congrats if you were one of the 250,000 people that did just that – you guys ROCK! To those who simply embrace it as annual challenge then go back to your usual way of eating – […]

Warm-Me-Up Indian Spiced Lentil Soup

Warm-Me-Up Indian Spiced Lentil Soup

Happy New Year! I don’t know about you, but January is mostly about survival for me. After the fairy-lit fun of Christmas, the rest of winter can seem like a vitamin-d deprived, slightly damp drag. Perhaps it’s a seasonal affective disorder (SAD) thing – I […]

Speculaas-Spiced Christmas Granola (Oil Free)

Speculaas-Spiced Christmas Granola (Oil Free)

Granola is one of those things you quickly stop buying when you realise how simple and inexpensive it is to make your own. I’ve never been much of a breakfast person (unless it’s a Special Weekend Breakfast when pancakes or waffles play a part) so […]

Snow-Topped Festive Tiffin – A No-Bake Christmas Cake!

Snow-Topped Festive Tiffin – A No-Bake Christmas Cake!

I’m going to jump right in here and declare my new-found love of tiffin. I always thought this traybake treat was something other people made – people who couldn’t bake maybe – and was of the opinion that it was a bit rubbish as every […]

Veganising Nigella: The Spruced Up Vanilla Cake

Veganising Nigella: The Spruced Up Vanilla Cake

…also known as Drop Dead Gorgeous Yogurt Cake in this house! This beautiful Christmassy-looking cake is inspired by Nigella Lawson’s original recipe, which is available on Nigella.com or found in her book, the magical Nigella Christmas. It’s the ideal cake for those of you who […]

Yes They’re Vegan: Best Ever Chocolate Cupcakes With Fudge Frosting

Yes They’re Vegan: Best Ever Chocolate Cupcakes With Fudge Frosting

These are only a slightly altered version of my Very Vanilla Cupcakes, but they are so yummy I really thought they deserved their own post. I’ve mentioned my daughter’s love of chocolate many times before – these cupcakes are almost always the first thing she […]

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Waffles + Quick Chocolate Sauce

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Waffles + Quick Chocolate Sauce

Probably the last of the pumpkin recipes for this year, I give you a sweet-toothed vegan’s champion breakfast – pumpkin spice waffles and a bonus chocolate sauce! Waffles are still a novelty in this house; I make pancakes a lot for special family breakfasts (that […]
