Buckwheat Pancakes with Vegan Nutella

It’s finally Veganuary! An excellent excuse for me to get back on the blogging scene. We had an amazing Christmas holiday in Mauritius this year, and one of the highlights for everyone was the hotel pancakes. It was actual pancake mania – pancakes at breakfast, pancakes at lunch and pancakes at 4pm to tide you…

Vegan Keto Crackers and Cheese

I’m skeptical about this whole keto thing, but I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from those on it around me, so I’m giving it a go. I have been told that it’ll be near ‘impossible’ to do keto on a vegetarian diet, never mind vegan. So I say “challenge accepted!” 🤗 My previous knowledge of…

Vegan Garlic Naan

Indian food is amazing. It’s actually incredible. So much flavour, so much heart, so much spice. My two favourite ( and embarrassingly simple) things to eat when going for an Indian are: A: Poppadoms & Mango Chutney – I count this as one thing as the two are inextricable soulmates in my eyes. B: Garlic…

Vegan White Chocolate and Raspberry Sponge Cake

What do you do with yourself on a rainy day? Relentless precipitation can leave you feeling sluggish. Like there’s nothing in the world that can be done that doesn’t involve going outside. I urge you – BAKE! Last Saturday was one of those exceptionally gloomy days that would make you forget sunshine ever existed. But…

Vegan Hot Cross Buns

It’s almost Easter! Superfluous heaps of chocolate is just around the corner!! Like almost every other national holiday, Easter is a time for celebrating togetherness while eating shitloads of unhealthy food. Who can complain? I do love how the seasons weave in and out, and bring with them an excuse to make something I’d never…

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?…

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 Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts

HOLY HOLE IN A DOUGHNUT!! Seriously though, these are the holy grail of deep-fried confectionary, if you think such a thing could exist. You know those doughnut stalls that give you a bag of five for a stupidly low price? The ones that tase ridiculously good? Well these are THAT. This was my first time…

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…
