How To Make Candied Citrus Peel

How To Make Candied Citrus Peel

Making candied citrus peel sounds a lot more daunting than it really is. It’s time-consuming, yes, but it’s not that difficult. Not only is it a really yummy thing to eat, but it’s also a great way to use up citrus peel that might otherwise be […]

Windfall Apple Galette With Date Caramel

Windfall Apple Galette With Date Caramel

My mum has two apple trees in her garden; one eating apple tree and one cooking apple tree. The trees seem to take it in turns to be loaded with apples each year, so we always have an endless supply. She also managed to get […]

“No-Bake” Fig & Frangipane Tart

“No-Bake” Fig & Frangipane Tart

Welcome to what is essentially my ‘No Bake’ Bakewell Tart: The Fig Edition. I’d like to take this opportunity to clarify that this is a raw cake, not because I have anything against regular cake, but just because I am a rubbish baker. It’s also […]

Rhubarb & Orange “Rose” Tart

Rhubarb & Orange “Rose” Tart

Okay, I’m going to praise myself a little bit here. This dessert is great!! Mainly because it’s actually very elegant and I typically am… not. Ha! But also cos it tastes damn divine.  The rhubarb is arranged like a rose, with thin strips of rhubarb […]

Strawberry and Rhubarb Tartlets

Strawberry and Rhubarb Tartlets

The rhubarb in my garden has gone wild.  Cue these perfectly imperfect strawberry and rhubarb tartlets, with a chickpea crust. Yes, they’re a bit burnt… because I was responding to emails and I forgot about them! I did consider making them again for photography purposes, […]

Vegan Rhubarb & Strawberry Cheesecake

Vegan Rhubarb & Strawberry Cheesecake

I am a huge cheesecake fan. I love cheesecake. But I do prefer to make vegan cheesecakes at home, purely because it’s more of a challenge to make it actually taste like cheesecake. But this!!! This is the best vegan cheesecake I have ever made. […]

Chocolate Orange Nice-Cream

Chocolate Orange Nice-Cream

Nana ice-cream, nice-cream, vegan banana ice-cream… whatever you want to call it, it’s amazing and it’s perfect for rescuing reeeally over-ripe bananas. In fact, the riper the bananas the better! Just slice them and freeze them; preferably in one flat sheet, so they don’t all […]

Layered Almond Butter Brownies

Layered Almond Butter Brownies

Like my peanut butter bliss balls, these layered brownies are easy to make in a large batch and are suitable for freezing. They also travel well, making them great for lunchboxes. Naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free, these delicious snacks are suitable for coeliacs and vegans. […]

Super-Smooth Peanut Butter Bliss Balls

Super-Smooth Peanut Butter Bliss Balls

As much as I hate the name “bliss balls”, it is what these are. To me bliss balls sound like something you’d be given to hold while you’re being healed with crystals and chanted at. You know like those yin and yang balls that chime? […]

“No-Bake” Bakewell Tart

“No-Bake” Bakewell Tart

Bakewell Tart is my second favourite dessert of all time; second only to lemon tart. Traditional Bakewell Tart is just… something else. But some of us are not gifted bakers. Ahem… Correction: I am not a gifted baker. My cakes always come out flat and my bread […]
