Can't decide between vanilla or chocolate cake? Why not have both with this Chocolate & Vanilla Vegan Marble Cake! Pretty, easy to make & sure to impress! All you need is a piping bag of each batter which you then Jackson Pollack into the tin and swirl together with a skewer or knife! Just fill with buttercream and/or jam plus some fresh fruit if you fancy it and you'll have a beautiful cake to share with friends. It definitely went down well when the Peachicks and I met up with some friends & their little people at the weekend!

Light and fluffy, Vegan Cheese & Chive Scones. Dairyfree but full of flavour thanks to the vegan parmesan & fresh chives! Most people will be familiar with those sweet or fruit filled ones but have you ever tried a Savoury scone? Yum! These Vegan Cheese & Chive Scones are great with slow cooker stews or even better a nice hot bowl of my Creamy Vegan Butternut Squash Soup.

These Vegan Olive Tomato & Basil Swirls are full of lovely Mediterranean flavours and perfect to show off the fruity flavour of Olive Oil. They are dairyfree, suitable for vegans and easy to make gluten-free by using suitable puff pastry. Gluten free pastry is becoming more readily available in supermarkets but check the ingredients its not always soyfree or vegan.

This Vegan Vanilla Victoria Sponge is super easy to make. It's also light and fluffy but sturdy enough to filled & covered in fondant for special occasions! This recipe makes one 20cm cake which you can slice into 2 or 3 ready for filling with jam & buttercream. You can also easily vary the flavour of this basic sponge recipe by using nut milks or adding coffee, chocolate or citrus zests! It is dairyfree, eggfree, nutfree and easy to adapt to Glutenfree, by replacing the flour with the same quantity of Doves farm glutenfree flour.

Essential Allergy Friendly Recipes - Vegan Chocolate Muffins 23
Who doesn't love a good chocolate muffin, they are an easy to grab breakfast or mid-afternoon chocolate hit. But why settle for those dry, crumbly ones off the shelf, when you can so easily make your own! So here it is - my Essential Vegan Chocolate Muffins recipe! Soft, dark and gooey as well as dairyfree, eggfree, soyfree and vegan friendly (for all of you taking part in Veganuary!) What more do you need?! Cupboard to mouth in about 30minutes (less if you make mini ones!) And did I mention the coffee kick? It's just enough to enhance the chocolate flavour without overpowering it completely.

My Essential Vegan Christmas Cake Biscotti make very pretty edible presents. Christmas is a great time of year but with all those extra presents to sort out for the kids teachers, friends and other randoms, handmade gifts are an ever popular idea. My best advice is something that can be made in bulk, in advance and with extra ingredients that can be changed depending on what is in your cupboard! And here it is - my Essential Vegan Christmas Cake Biscotti Recipe, can be made in advance and kept in pretty cellophane bags ready to hand out (also makes lovely goodie bags!) These have all the flavours of Christmas Cake in a yummy, dunkable biscotti filled with cranberries, dark chocolate chunks and brazil nuts then topped with white chocolate drizzle and grated lemon zest!

This week is Chocolate Week and with the weather having turned considerably colder, what better way to celebrate it than with a lovely warming cake with beautiful Autumnal flavours.  This Vegan Beetroot & Ginger Chocolate Cake uses lovely seasonal beetroots which are great this time of year combined with a warming hint of ground ginger!  Beetroot and chocolate are such a fab combination and the gentle warm kick from the ginger ties it all together!  The best filling for this is a rich chocolate buttercream and a dark sweet cherry jam – yep cherries, ginger & beetroot – YUM! We are all suffering with the first snuffles of the season, so its a quiet weekend for us because as every asthmatic knows, wheezy lungs and Autumn snuffles do not mix!  In these situations its hard for my poor lungs as they object violently to both aerosol steroid inhalers and […]

These little Mediterranean Swirly Bread rolls, filled with garlic, tomatoes and olives, have quickly become a staple of Elodie’s Preschool lunchboxes. She especially likes them with cherry tomato pieces in them as apparently they go pop! These rolls have no salt in them, are dairyfree, eggfree & soyfree, and keep really well in a sealed container. The added bonus of making them yourself is that you can make them as big or as small as you like! These are small enough to fit inside the cups of a normal muffin tin and can be sprinkled with dairyfree cheese before baking for an extra crunchy top!  For a non vegan/veggie version wafer ham slices work well but I wouldn’t keep them as long.  These little swirls are a lunchbox saviour – I make a batch on Sunday et voila the Ginger Peachick has lunch for the week!  It makes lunch […]

Autumn is the season of beautiful fruits and this delicious Vegan Pear, Fig & Ginger Cake is the perfect way to serve up all those slightly over-ripe pears lurking in the fruit bowl! The warm hint of the fresh ginger works really well with the pears and figs without overpowering either of them. This cake is great served warm on a chilly Autumn afternoon with a generous scoop of dairyfree vanilla icecream! The best part of this cake is that it is quick to make, perfect for a last minute afternoon tea, as a lazy Sunday dessert or for warming up after a sunny stomp in the woods.  It would also make a great warming pudding after an evenings Trick or Treating or for a Fireworks Party!  It actually takes longer to grate or mash the pear to remove the skin than it does to mix the ingredients together […]
