    Earth Cakes

    You would think after so many variations I would be fed up with these little potato cakes by now but I’m really not. I keep finding ways to make them even more exciting and more nutrient rich and it all started with that first potato cake recipe. Since then I’ve created the following variations: Zesty Lemon, Banana & Cinnamon, Peanut Butter Matcha with Peanut Buttercream and now these bad boys make it number 5 and it’s certainly a doozy. They taste like a delicious combo of Peanut Butter and Banana as approved by my non-vegan husband. But, they’re so much more than that. As well as the peanut butter and banana they…

    Peanut Butter Matcha Cakes with Peanut Buttercream

    Are you as obsessed with Matcha as I am? I recently found a wonderful brand for my plain Matcha Tea or Matcha Lattes. I wanted to do something a little more creative though so I decided a safe bet would be to customise my original recipe for Peanut Butter Potato Cakes. I was surprised with how well they turned out! The Icing is completely optional as these are super tasty without. However, I feel they add an extra element to the flavours and it looks so pretty with the icing. The amount of Matcha in these doesn’t have a super strong flavour but still has all the benefits Matcha provides. As…

    Zesty Lemon Cakes

    The recipe has been adapted from the Peanut Butter Potato Cakes Recipe. They’re just as tasty, a little lower in calories and super zesty. Note – for this exact recipe I added a little icing on top made by combining 2 tsp Icing Sugar with 1 tsp Water and a little Vanilla Extract. Then topping with Lemon Zest.  These Lemon Cakes are dense, moreish, healthy and tasty. They’re Vegan and Gluten-free and super simple to make in just 30 minutes. The combination of the zesty lemon and the sweetness of the Golden Syrup make a perfect combination. If you enjoy these, make sure to try the original peanut butter version or the moreish Banana…

    Cinnamon Banana Cakes

    This recipe has been created from the Peanut Butter Potato Cakes recipe. The base for that minus a few ingredients makes for a wonderful backbone for many other recipes. Note – for this exact recipe I added a little icing on top made by combining 2 tsp Icing Sugar with 1 tsp Water and a little Vanilla Extract. Then topping with cinnamon.  These Banana Cakes are dense, moreish, healthy and tasty. They’re both Vegan and Gluten-free and super simple to make in just 30 minutes. The combination of Banana and simple Oat Flour mixed with a little sweetness makes these banana cakes short on ingredients but big on flavour. If you loved this recipe…

    Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

    Carrot Cake is a classic that holds a soft spot in my heart. The combination of sweetness and delicate fudgy flavours with a delicious Cream Cheese Frosting make this a superb cake for any occasion. If you like this recipe you should try the Chocolate & Gingerbread Silk Cake, lower on calories but just as much flavour. Or for something savoury, why not try the Jackfruit Pulled Pork. Fun fact, the popularity of carrot cake was revived in Great Britain because of rationing during the Second World War. Since then it’s been a favourite for many. I can’t say I blame them. The original recipe is by a lovely lady at ‘Eggless Cooking’ who made…

    Chocolate & Gingerbread Silk Cake

    The secret ingredient to this wonderful delight is Tofu. It’s creamy and sweet but not overly so and it’s light on the stomach. The ginger gives it a lovely warming kick while the chocolate adds decadence. Plus, the Tofu adds a healthy nutrient rich element. You could easily add soft cheese to this and make it into a cheesecake. It’s a very workable recipe. This would be the perfect accompaniment for some cookie dough peanut bites or for something a little more decadent how about the Chocolate Orange Cheesecake. Note – You can set in the fridge but it will remain slightly more sloppy so it’s best from the freezer…

    Chocolate Orange Cheesecake

    Disclaimer: The original recipe for this isn’t mine. It’s courtesy of a wonderful lady on Instragam @gingervegan. Check out her page for some wonderful content. This recipe is tweaked to my own liking from her original.  Upon posting this on my Instagram people went crazy for it. FYI I post regularly on my Instagram with plenty of food pictures and recipes. This recipe is moreish, delightful and pretty simple to make. The beautiful cheesecake is complemented hand in hand with the chocolate and orange. It’s sublime and surprisingly light on the calories for a cheesecake. If you like this recipe you will love the Chocolate & Gingerbread silk Cake. It’s just as decadent but even lighter on…
