Everyone loves a good chocolate cake. And this Easy Vegan Chocolate Layer Cake (Dairyfree Eggfree) from The Peachicks' Bakery is definitely a very, very good chocolate cake! Lets face it having an allergy to dairy and/or eggs shouldn't stand in the way of anyone enjoying a good old slice of cake with their cuppa. Neither should you need a host of fancy ingredients just to make it. This cake is exactly what you want in a chocolate cake, just without the dairy, eggs or soy! AND its really easy to make too! This is my go to recipe for baking with the kids because the vegetable oil and milk make it really easy to stir the ingredients together. Plus it looks amazing and tastes even better!

These Dairyfree Sultana Teacakes are made with a dough enriched with sultanas, Koko Dairyfree and Vitalite Spread, making them dairyfree, eggfree and suitable for vegans too!   April is here and I actually can’t quite believe I am saying this… not only is Easter is nearly upon us but The Peachicks’ Bakery is officially 5 years old!  Yikes!  It wasn’t that long ago that Daddy Peacock casually suggested I replaced all my scrappy old recipe notebooks with a website and the rest as they say is history!  You can read the first post here.  So much has changed around here, not least in that we now have 3 Peachicks… each as crackers as the next and each with a list of allergies as distinct as their personalities!  The milk, eggs and soy are common to them all, its just some of them tolerate it better than others.  Happily it […]

Need a speedy midweek meal, using store cupboard essentials that is full of veggies that the little people will love too? Then look no further because my Millie has the perfect recipe for you. I give you Millie's Marvellous Minestrone served with crunchy Parmesan crusted courgette wedges. Jar to table in no time at all, leaving time free for all that last minute homework the Peachicks suddenly remember needs to be done! Full of aubergines, mushrooms and a great way to use up all those left over tiny pasta bits; it also has added dairyfree milk so is a great way of getting vitamins as well as calcium into the little people! It is Vegan and easy to make Glutenfree too, just swap the pasta.

Meal Planning Monday - Pancakes, Chicken & Muffins!
I've finally got around to joining in with Meal Planning Monday. On the menu this week is pancakes, Traybake Thursday (prob fish) and coconut rice! The question is will we stick to the plan or wander off on a tangent? Knowing the Peachicks there will be at least one meal on the menu that will have to be altered in some way!
