Salted Caramel Adzuki Bean Brownies (Vegan + GF)

Salted Caramel Adzuki Bean Brownies (Vegan + GF)

About a year ago, I adapted my Nutella Brownies slightly to make these Salted Caramel Adzuki Bean Brownies. I recently re-made the brownies, and realised that there were a few steps and ingredients in the old recipe that weren’t completely necessary, so I’ve decided to republish a new and improved version!  Just like my NutellaRead more

Kinako Latte (Vegan + GF)

Kinako Latte (Vegan + GF)

This 3-ingredient Kinako Latte is a great alternative to hot chocolate as it’s rich and comforting without being too sweet, and a fab caffeine-free option if you’re tired of herbal tea.  Kinako, which means “yellow flour” in Japanese, is roasted soybean flour (so it’s gluten-free), and is widely used in Japanese cuisine.  Kinako is traditionally used inRead more

5-Minute Vegan Eggnog (GF)

5-Minute Vegan Eggnog (GF)

“Vegan Eggnog?” I hear you ask. Yes, I know eggnog is usually made with milk, cream, sugar, eggs. But this version here is really healthy and because it’s  vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar free, it also suits a wide range of dietary requirements! I came up with this recipe because I love eggnog but can never be bothered to makeRead more

Homemade Pomegranate Juice

Homemade Pomegranate Juice

I love this Homemade Pomegranate Juice for its delicious flavour as well as its adorable baby pink colour. Apparently it was pomegranates (not apples, as commonly thought) that were the “forbidden fruit” described in the Bible. Given how delicious they taste and how beautiful they look, I’m not surprised! Not only is homemade pomegranate juiceRead more

Matcha Green Tea Granola (Vegan + GF)

Matcha Green Tea Granola (Vegan + GF)

It had been a while since I made granola, so I decided to give it a go again, and, inspired by my recent recipe for Matcha Overnight Oats, I came up with this Matcha Green Tea Granola.   Granola is one of the easiest things to make yourself and also one of the most rewarding. There’s nothing moreRead more

Vegan Black Sesame Latte

Vegan Black Sesame Latte

This Vegan Black Sesame Latte is rich, creamy and wonderfully indulgent, but it’s also naturally sweetened and really healthy! I’ve recently absolutely fallen in love with this Plenish unsweetened cashew milk and I’ve especially enjoyed using it to make Golden Milk. It’s become my go-to milk for making hot drinks (like hot chocolate and matcha lattes)Read more

Vegan Black Sesame Crème Caramel

Vegan Black Sesame Crème Caramel

This Vegan Black Sesame Crème Caramel came about as I was inspired by my Matcha Panna Cotta to experiment with other Japanese-flavoured European desserts. I originally planned on calling it Black Sesame Panna Cotta, but then settled for Black Sesame Crème Caramel, mostly because I realised the soft, custardy pudding paired with the thick date syrup closelyRead more

Strawberry Chocolate Crumble (Vegan + GF)

Strawberry Chocolate Crumble (Vegan + GF)

This Strawberry Chocolate Crumble is another perfect dessert for summer!  The oven acts as a transforming agent for the strawberries in this crumble, somehow managing to make them sweeter and more intense in flavour, whilst keeping them perfectly juicy but not watery. For the topping, I opted for my go-to combination of oats and ground almonds, and decided to add some cocoaRead more

Gluten-Free Vegan Gâteau au Chocolat

Gluten-Free Vegan Gâteau au Chocolat

I came up with the recipe for this Gluten-Free Vegan Gâteau au Chocolat almost by accident, but don’t know what I’d do without it!   I’m really happy with how this cake turned out: it’s gooey, fudgy, DELICIOUS, and a complete dream for lazy bakers like myself! I decided to post the recipe for this cake in celebrationRead more

Vegan Matcha Panna Cotta

Vegan Matcha Panna Cotta

Another summery dessert! This Vegan Matcha Panna Cotta with a strawberry compote is amazingly colourful, naturally sweetened and surprisingly healthy. As both the panna cotta and the strawberry compote can be made ahead of time, this dessert would be perfect for summer dinner parties, picnics and BBQs! This vegan version here is just as easy to makeRead more

Mango Cardamom Crumble (Vegan + GF)

Mango Cardamom Crumble (Vegan + GF)

A slight adaption of my Pear and Dark Chocolate Crumble, this Mango Cardamom Crumble is also gluten-free and vegan, and completely sugar-free!  And what’s more, this version here is actually easier to make than a regular crumble! You don’t have to spend ages crumbling butter into flour and sugar with your hands, just put all of theRead more

Mochi Dessert Pizza (Vegan + GF)

Mochi Dessert Pizza (Vegan + GF)

You might have heard of a dessert pizza and you might have heard of a mochi pizza, but have you ever heard of a Mochi Dessert Pizza?! Didn’t think so, because I hadn’t either until I made one myself. This creation came about after I saw online that you can make mochi pizza with just aRead more
