S’mores Cake Bars

A while ago I was experimenting with brownies, but I didn’t have enough fat content and they baked a bit too dry. So, instead of lamenting, I blitzed them into brownie crumbs, and froze them for a later date. I knew they’d come in handy as a base layer for something. One day, while needing…

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I haven’t planned to make a bunch of vegan recipes, but I had the right ingredients lying around that needed using up. Plus, it’s always fun making cookies! The other beauty of this recipe is that it can all be made in one bowl, which makes for much easier clean up. You can change the…

Brown Butter Apple Cake

Sometimes I buy apples, eat a few, and then leave the rest bit too long so they start to get a bit soft. But fear not. There are plenty of delicious recipes that use up apples. This recipe is quick, easy and only requires one bowl to mix all the ingredients (if you can’t be…

Vegan Dragonfruit and Raspberry Ice Cream

No-churn ice cream means you can make your own ice cream without an ice cream maker. When I had an abundance of dragonfruit, I needed new ideas of how to use it. You need to leave the can of coconut milk or cream in the fridge overnight, so that it can be whipped into an…

Dragonfruit Cheesecake Bars

There’s just something so incredible about the pink flesh of dragonfruit. It’s so captivating and bright, it makes me smile. I know, that sounds weird – but it’s the truth. This recipe came about because, surprise surprise, I had random things in my house that needed using up. Dragonfruit is currently my Eat Fresh veggie…

Vegan Choc Chip Pumpkin Loaf

I never really understood the American’s love for pumpkin-based desserts. I couldn’t see the appeal. However, I will raise my hand up and say that I was judging a book by it’s cover. Adding pumpkin makes a baked good incredibly moist, and the spices added (those normally associated with pumpkin-based desserts) add such a great…

Sugar-free Peanut Butter Cookies

I know it’s been a very long time since I posted, but there is a very good reason for that. With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19, schools have been closed since the Chinese New Year holidays. This means we are now teaching online, supplying resources to carry out e-learning, and instead of…

Mint Chocolate Pots de Creme

It’s the last day of 2019. We’re entering a new year and a new decade. What better way to celebrate 2020, than with mint chocolate pots de creme? They’re easy to make, require minimal equipment and taste delicious. I used a mixture of skimmed and whole milk for the pots de creme, but you can…

Chocolate Sour Cream Cake

I love putting sour cream into cakes. It makes them so moist and delicious, it seems crazy that they are not a staple in all cakes. I know, some of you are going to be cringing at the word moist – but cakes need to be just that. Dry, crumbly cakes are not enjoyable to…
