Gluten-Free Vegan Cherry Bakewell Cake

Gluten-Free Vegan Cherry Bakewell Cake

This Gluten-Free Vegan Cherry Bakewell Cake is easy to make, tastes every bit as delicious as the traditional version, and is surprisingly healthy!  Cherry Bakewell tart has always been a firm favourite of mine, but I do find it a little too sweet – the layers of jam, frangipane, icing, the glacé cherries, it’s all a bitRead more

I can’t get over how delicious this Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Cake is – it tastes reminiscent of Nutella, it’s rich and indulgent, and perfectly soft and fudgy.

Earl Grey Blackberry Chiffon Cake

This Earl Grey Blackberry Chiffon Cake came about after I went for a long walk the other day and ended up picking these wonderful wild blackberries: I was so surprised to see how tiny they were compared to the massive blackberries you can buy in the supermarket.

Adzuki Bean Nutella Brownies (Vegan + GF)

Adzuki Bean Nutella Brownies (Vegan + GF)

I decided to make these Adzuki Bean Nutella Brownies because black bean brownies seem to be all the rage lately, but I thought adzuki red beans might be better suited, as they’re used in a lot of traditional Japanese desserts. Adzuki is a type of red bean grown in Eastern Asia that’s quite similar in size and textureRead more

Gluten-Free Vegan Pear Dark Chocolate Pudding

Gluten-Free Vegan Pear Dark Chocolate Pudding

This Gluten-Free Vegan Pear Dark Chocolate Pudding is rich and fudgy, and tastes much more indulgent than it really is! I’m pretty clumsy in the kitchen and what I dislike about baking is cracking eggs into a bowl of batter (and inevitably having to fish out bits of egg shell) and faffing about with a sieve for theRead more

Matcha Chestnut Cake (Dairy-Free)

Matcha Chestnut Cake (Dairy-Free)

I absolutely love this Matcha Chestnut Cake, because of the combination of the vibrantly coloured, light and fluffy sponge spread with a perfectly sweet, smooth chestnut paste. What I love most about this sponge, other than how delicious it is, is that you only need 4 simple ingredients to make it! It’s a Japanese-style sponge cake recipe that IRead more
