Pecan & Maple Spelt Bun Cake

I made these buns as an attempt to make a slightly more virtuous version of my cinnamon buns. Don’t get me wrong – I have no problem with allowing myself a treat, or 10, of an afternoon. But I thought I’d try a wholegrain, refined sugar free bun to see if it could hold it’s […]

Winter Waldorf Salad

Waldorf salad has always been a favourite of mine. I’m sometimes wary of fruit in savoury things but I love the combination of the crunchy cabbage and celery with the sweet apple and raisins. The toasted walnuts and creamy but tart dressing round off the range of flavours, which although varied and seemingly a bit random […]

Blueberry Pancake Stack

I love pancakes, love them. Although I generally tend to be pretty torn between my allegiances to both savoury and sweet I can never resist american style pancakes on a breakfast menu. Fat, fluffy, served with glugs and glugs of maple syrup and a side serving of fruit (to appease my healthy eating side) I […]

Mini Vegan Cottage Pies

The inspiration for these little cottage pies came from twitter, believe it or not. I’m not so great at the whole twitter thing. I mean, I’m not technologically incompetent – I understand how it works and everything. It’s just there are only so many hours in the day and between instagram, email, Facebook and other […]

Christmas Pudding Energy Balls

I’m a sucker for cute looking confectionary and when you add the Christmas element to the mix these little puddings are hitting all the baking bases for me in one! The idea for these was born out of buying the little holly and ivy decorations that you see adorning the tops, I thought how sweet […]

Bloody Mary Beans

Now I love a Bloody Mary as much as the next (hungover) person. Rich, savoury and just the right side of spicy; it quenches your thirst, replenishes your sodium levels and gets you very slightly drunk again if you have 2 and are a total lightweight like me. But the one thing a Bloody Mary doesn’t […]

Mulled Wine Spiced Buns

I have been working at perfecting my Christmas Bun recipe and with these beauties I think I finally have it. Baking them will make your whole house smell like Christmas, and then you get the joy of eating them too. If you’re not feeling festive yet then I urge you to get in the kitchen, put […]

Caramel and Peanut Chocolate Cups

This little creation is what I imagine the love child of a snickers and a peanut butter cup to taste like. Mini-muffin sized dark chocolate cups filled with salty peanuts and a gooey caramel – what’s not to love? Any they’re so dinky small that they can’t be bad for you, even if you do eat […]

Simple Vegan Meringues

Ever so simple, ever so sweet. This recipe is super easy and produces lovely meringues without even the mention of an egg. Instead of egg whites the recipe uses aquafaba, which is the water drained from a tin of chickpeas. I know, it sounds insane, and not a little bit weird. Who wants a meringue with an after […]

Fennel, Orange and Mint Salad

I’ve noticed that the recipes I make generally tend to fall into one of two categories: those that are naturally vegan and those that are a plant-based twist on a usually non-vegan dish. This recipe easily falls into the former. Juicy segments of orange, crunchy slices of fennel and a sharp and sweet citrus dressing with a […]
