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!

Creamy Cheesy Vegan Potato & Kale Spring Salad, perfect way to banish those winter blues and full of immune boosting vitamins to keep the bugs away! This dish is freefrom most of the Top14 allergens as its freefrom dairy, eggs & soy as well as gluten (check cornichon ingredients) but noone will be able to tell the difference! This is a great stand alone salad that is delicious warm and even better cold the day after. It also makes a great side dish to your favourite grilled fish, meat or vegan alternative. The yoghurt dressing can be made in a big batch and kept for dunking veggies in for the rest of the week!

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.

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!

Peachick Approved: Vita Coco drinks! We are great fans of coconuts in this house and use them in a variety of forms; flour, milk, oil, you name it we use it!  So you can imagine how excited The Peachicks were when they received a pretty package of lovely Vita Coco Drinks! Coconut milk is a great dairy alternative and is fab in smoothies but somedays are just not smoothie days (although these make a great base for one!) Vita Coco drinks are made with a base of coconut water blended with coconut and/or fruit puree to make a variety of tasty flavours – we tried the pineapple, peach & mango, and chocolate drinks; alongside one of the Vita Coco Cafe drinks, containing coffee and skimmed milk. ** Images c/o VitaCocoUK ** These drinks come in a variety of sizes, the smallest being the 330ml cartons with screw top lid, perfect for […]

Christmas is nearly upon us… yep I’ve said it! And the weather, even down here, has turned cold. This One Pot Slow Cooked Ham in a Dairyfree, Creamy Sage Sauce is the perfect dinner to warm everyone up on a cold winters day. Peachicks are big fans of ham joints, you know the big ones that are roasted, basted & glazed for the Christmas celebrations! Well they are actually a really lovely, cheap and fuss free way to feed the family the whole year through.   Its also quite nice to arrive home from work and have food already sorted so happily this dish works as well in a casserole dish on the hob (1hour) or in a slow cooker left to its own devices for the day on low! AND bonus – not only does it all cook in one pot but this is a very cheap family […]

The Peachicks are massive Moo Free Chocolate fans so when we heard they were bringing out their Moo Free Baking Drops, the Peachicks were very excited!  Finding dairyfree, soyafree, vegan chocolate chips is ok as long as you want dark chocolate which works for some recipes (like these Hazelnut & Cranberry Biscotti) but sometimes only milk chocolate ones will do.  Obviously when trying out Baking Drops there had to be some cooking involved and I have been really impressed with just how much like ‘normal’ chocolate chips these behave!  You can find the recipe for our Pumpkin & Choc Chip cookies below and I will post the cranberry & choc chip scones soon! Moo Free Chocolates are made with rice milk and are freefrom dairy, gluten and most excitingly soya (insert fanfare here!!)  thanks to the use of sunflower and not soy lecithin!  Like all Moo Free Chocolates, these […]

The start of the year is always really busy for me on a work front so enjoy a guest post from Daddy Peacock himself and a recipe for the fab one pot Daddy Peacock’s Slow Cooked Chunky Chilli…   The end of August and beginning of September are very busy & celebration heavy in this house.  Our eldest Peachick is now only one year from double figures (where did that go?!) we have been married a bit longer and I, Daddy Peacock, have reached the halfway milestone of my thirties!!  We were in France for Alys’ celebrations which meant allergies were put on hold (We wish!!) because as many of you know you can just switch them off when you fancy something a bit special, or you’re en vacances?!  This is Alys’ Vegan Caramel Coffee Apple Cake! For my birthday, we were planning a barbecue with family.  Some fish (probably mackerel or sardines) […]
