Banana & Peanut Breakfast Loaf

This is a delicious breakfast loaf. Serve with dairy free butter or margarine, and spread thickly. It’s great with a hot cup of Earl Grey tea. It’s child friendly, and you’ll really love it at that time of day when you feel like a carb boost. You can use other nuts, or even chopped dried fruit in it if you wish.   INGREDIENTS 150 ml (5¼ fl oz) soya milk 2 tsp apple cider vinegar […]

Luscious Dark Chocolate & Carob Pudding Cake with a Rich Chocolate & Carob Glossy Frosting

Here’s a fantastic ‘must-keep’ recipe I created for you. Again, ideal for Birthday parties, a Christmas tea-time surprise, Thanksgiving, or any other festive occasion that calls for celebration. This cake is luscious, moist, fresh, very chocolaty, and rich in a light kind of way. I created a glossy frosting, which is beautifully decadent. Once you make this, there’s no going back. I love carob, and that is why I added it to this cake (if […]

Ultimate Carrot & Coconut Cake with a Soft Vanilla Frosting

This is definitely the best carrot cake I have ever made – not visually, but as far as taste is concerned. We couldn’t stop indulging, one bite after another and well, it was so addictive. I really am totally chuffed by the result. So, go make, bake, shake and enjoy because you will love this treat.   Make your frosting first.   INGREDIENTS FOR FROSTING 150g vegan cream cheese, pre-chilled (I used Tofutti) 4 Tbsp […]

Vegan Raw Chocolate-Carob Swiss Roll Roly Poly Log

With Thanksgiving round the corner, it’s time to start getting cosy round the hearth, and reach out for the comfort foods – without getting to comfy round the girth, I hope ! This is a totally irresistible chocolate log, though I chose to use carob in this instance, which I thoroughly recommend because of its amazing flavour when incorporated in this way. It’s another of those raw desserts that’s right up there, rubbing shoulders with […]

Mousse au Chocolat with Air Bubbles ! (Chocolate Mousse)

This sure is a breakthough in vegan cuisine.   A short while ago there was talk on FB somewhere that if you beat the liquid from a can of chickpeas (called – aquafaba), then it will froth into a meringue, and they weren’t wrong either. I adapted this theory, and was not interested in just making a meringue. I had done that a year or so ago with other ingredients, but I was intrigued with […]

Chocolate & Cream French Toast With Pan Seared Bananas, Cinnamon & Salted Peanuts

There is no getting away from the fact that this is decadent in the extreme, and . . . well . . . very, very naughty. But what the heck, the festive areason is round the corner, we’re wrapped up inside for a cosy winter, and this is exactly what we’re craving at this moment – even if it is contrary to all our dietary instincts. It’s actually very simple to make, and my take […]

My Vegan Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon meringue is an old English favourite, and for me it is so reminiscent of childhood.  As with so many nostalgic recipes, I had it marked down on my list of ‘must veganize’ dishes.  Well this one has really surpassed all expectations, and has all those yummy qualities of the original.  With the help of egg replacer, I managed to recreate a light meringue, and also the wonderful lemony filling.  Once again proving that, although […]

Double Devilled Choc N Orange Mousse Cheesecake

This recipe was inspired by the famous Terry’s Chocolate Orange, which we used to enjoy as children. A combination that works so well, that I had to base my next vegan cheesecake around it !   INGREDIENTS FOR BASE 1 cup pecan nuts (you may slightly toast these if you wish) ½ cup toasted sunflower seeds 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (natural cacao powder can be purchased from here in the US, or from here […]

Orange & Chocolate Cheesecake With A Fruit & Hazelnut Crust (No Bake)

One of the most more-ish non-bake desserts ever.  The key to the success of this dessert is good quality chocolate, and to refrigerate it overnight.  It’s an impressively delicious masterpiece – easy to make, and won’t disappoint.  Great to serve to non-vegans who won’t believe such decadence and deliciousness is even possible.  Moist and smooth in the mouth with it’s wonderfully contrasting texture at the base, although the base is surprisingly moist, and almost slightly […]

Rose-Infused Blackberry & Apple Almond Christmas Crumble – Gluten Free

This year, 2013, my soul has craved a change for many reasons, but we won’t go into all of that.  Suffice it to say, my head has been whirling ideas around that I have just felt compelled to follow.  Textures, colours, and aromas float above my eyes, and what I see makes my mouth water.  To that end, I bring you a most sublime Christmas (and gluten-free) dessert that will have you singing songs of […]
