The Peachicks are big pancake fans and they definitely do not let food allergies stand between them and a good pancake feast. They aren't fussy about toppings either; sweet, savoury or a mixture of the two are all devoured equally quickly! We have teamed up with a host of other bloggers to create The Ultimate Collection of Freefrom Pancakes. So if are catering for allergies or special diets this Shrove Tuesday then look no further because The Ultimate Collection of Freefrom Pancakes has got you covered!

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!

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.

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!

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 […]

Having a massive box of apples sat in the kitchen means lots of yummy baking and this Vegan Apple Crumble Pie is just one of the delicious things we have made with them!  My tangy apple sauce made with a hit of Apple Cider Vinegar was another one and I will add it to all our other apple recipes soon!  On a cold Autumn Sunday afternoon there is few things better than coming home after a stomp in the sunshine to a slice of warm apple pie or bowl of crumble and custard… In this situation though there is a traditional argument that erupts between those in this house that want pie and those that want crumble! Cue one Mummy stuck in the middle getting very fed up of listening to it et Voila – a fab compromise – this very lovely Vegan Apple Crumble Pie with caramel sauce! […]

Vegan Blackberry & Apple Scones 15
This week (8th-14th August) is both Allotment Week AND Afternoon Tea Week so what better recipe to celebrate both than a scone recipe using beautiful homegrown blackberries?!  And here they are, Vegan Blackberry & Apple Scones!  You’ve heard of self-saucing puddings well these are scones make their own jam! Ever since we have lived together we have always grown our own fruit & veg.  While we were at uni this was a couple of pots; mainly herbs on the windowsill, runner beans and strawberries.  These days, we live in a house with very little garden, chosen as I am sure a lot of parents do, for the schools it is in catchment for.  Our veggie patch is about 2ftx6ft plus a few pots, an upcycled pirate water tray and a GIANT bramble patch growing up an old tree!   Whilst we wait for an allotment* we make the best […]
