Vegan Carrot Cake

My first ever taste of carrot cake was revolutionary. It quickly become a solid favourite. There’s just something so amazingly satisfying about the texture. It’s thick and dense but not so much that it feels heavy to eat. It also has one of your 5-a-day, so that makes it somewhat healthy, yeah? Anyone?? And the…

Vegan Matcha Cookies

Green tea and chocolate – a matcha made in heaven, no? I’ve recently acquired something of a matchaddiction. I can’t get enough of the stuff, and the endless list of health benefits aren’t helping me stop. If you aren’t familiar with matcha, it’s basically super concentrated green tea – think 10 cups of green tea…

Vegan Irish Soda Bread

Ahh a taste of my childhood. I used to eat this toasted and smothered in butter before setting off for school. I didn’t realise how much I appreciated the stuff til I moved to England and couldn’t find it in the shops. Cry. Traditionally, Irish breads are made with buttermilk, and require no time to…

Best Ever Bagels

Bagels, bagels, bagels!! WE WANT BAGELS. My cinnamon sugar doughnuts recipe caused an influx of ‘I love you for these but I also hate you’ comments. So I thought, I need to give the people what they want, and they clearly enjoy round-beige-bakes-with-a-hole-in-the-middle. The humble bagel was the answer – and when is it not?…

Creamy Almond and Coconut Butter

What do you do when you find a giant bag of almonds shoved to the back of your cupboard? – Ya make that goooood nut butter. I wanted to give this almond butter some sort of twist. I remember picking up a jar of Meridian Coconut and Peanut Butter a while back and being so…

Vegan Creamy Baked Asparagus

Gimme da greens!! In celebration of the Spring Equinox yesterday, I give you creamy baked asparagus, because nothing says springtime like these gorgeous little green spears. If someone says they don’t like they don’t like vegetables, first, tell them to grow up, and second, give them this. Usually, I love to flash-fry asparagus in a…

Vegan Choco-Banana Walnut Loaf

As the story goes with almost every banana-featuring bake, I had spotted some browning bananas on my windowsill. This is something I tend to get nerdily excited about as I explore the possibilities of what they could become. I love the versatility of bananas and I tend to use them in a lot of my…

Fudgy Vegan Brownies

I spent yesterday on trains all day getting back from London to Manchester. Wistfully looking out the window I thought I couldn’t wait to bake something the moment I got home. “What could I bake that won’t take very long and I already have the ingredients for?” – BROWNIES. To be completely honest, for some…

Zingy Vegan Lemon Cake with Candied Lemon Slices

Nothing works quite as well as an afternoon pick-me-up on a rainy day as a slice of lemon cake. It’s not dense like a chocolate cake, and not as sickly sweet as a traditional vanilla cupcake – a perfect in-between. I love working with citrus fruits in bakes. The citric zing they gift to sweets…

Cheat’s Ramen

There’s something about ramen that’s just so wholesomely satisfying to eat, especially on a gloomy day. I’ve tried to make the broth the traditional way in the past, but always found it too technically demanding. So here’s a much simpler version for you that can be whipped up in under half an hour. I hope…
