Carrot Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting: vegan

A very brief post to update an old recipe: It was The Boy’s birthday at the weekend and I promised I’d bake him whatever he wanted. He chose my carrot cake, but unfortunately I was missing a few vital ingredients and didn’t fancy another trip to the supermarket. So this is an update to an…

Vegan Double Chocolate Cake

In honour of National Chocolate Day this week, I shared a pic on Instagram of a dairy & egg free chocolate cake I made recently. I had a few requests for the recipe, so here it is folks, enjoy! Cake Ingredients 340g self raising flour 60g cocoa powder 240g caster sugar 2 tsp baking powder…

Peanut Butter & Banana “Cheesecake” – vegan friendly

Who doesn’t love a good cheesecake? Creamy, rich, indulgent… And you’d have thought that being vegan means giving up on decadent treats such as these, but you’d be wrong. I love finding a dairy-free, vegan friendly alternative to some of my old favourites, and this one is sure to impress even your non-vegan friends. The…

Vegan Spicy Carrot + Walnut Cake

Vegan Spicy Carrot + Walnut Cake with Zingy Lemon + Cashew Frosting The original version of this recipe produced 12 deliciously spicy Carrot & Walnut Cupcakes, but more recently I’ve been turning it in to a slightly more grown up cake. The recipe remains fundamentally the same, however I swapped the gluten-free brown rice flour…

Coco’s Honest Kitchen

Last weekend I finally did something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I spent 13 hours baking on Saturday, then on Sunday I sold the results of my hard work at my very own market stall at Palmer’s Green’s Market N13.    Everything I sold was homemade, organic and of course, most importantly, vegan….

Vegan (but very naughty) Chocolate Chunk Cookies

It’s been a week of birthdays at work, with one more still to come next week; mine! So I’ve been baking a variety of sweet vegan treats. I went mainstream (read “sugary”) with these chocolate chunk cookies. I find they go down the best with non-vegans and proves that it is possible to have your…

Vegan (almost raw) Chocolate Orange Tarte

I made chocolate brownies not so long ago, and whilst I loved them – chocolate, what’s not to love, right? – the boyfriend wondered if they might have been better as a pie/tart/torte, something to do with the density. So I have created my Chocolate Orange Tarte and am going to share the recipe with you. Although…

Vegan Homemade – no added sugar – Apple Sauce

This weekend I will be baking vegan carrot cake cupcakes, to give to my local coffee / cake shop, a bit of an experiment – and I might even share them with my yoga gang during our course on Saturday. Now usually I would use shop-bought (shhhh!) apple sauce, this time however, as I had a little…

Vegan (Superfood) Chocolate Brownies !!

So I’m not going to lie, I like sweet things. “Sweet tooth” doesn’t quite cover it, but might go someway to explaining why I jumped at the chance to eat 9 (!!!) consecutive chocolate bars, when challenged by a “friend” at college –  added bonus, my “friend” even provided the bars. This tendency to over…
