Vegan Lemon Drizzle

Whoops. It’s been quiet here for a very long time. Where have the months gone?! Our family expanded with the addition of our beautiful puppy Arlo, and he certainly has been keeping us busy. Whilst running a business, working part time, and looking after a pup, finding time to blog has been hard; not only do you need time, you also need significant surface area (read… the floor!) to photograph the bakes which has been challenging with an inquisitive puppy!

My plan for 2018 was to post at least 1 new recipe a month… safe to say that being in March already, it hasn’t gotten off to a good start! But that being said I already have a few recipes in the pipeline for you ready to go.

For now you’ll still see a heavy vegan influence on my blog. My first attempt at reintroducing eggs was not much of a success, so for now I’m still egg free. That being said, I’m winning more and more every day at creating vegan bakes, so I feel like I’m missing out less and less.

All that said, here is my recipe for a vegan lemon drizzle. It might not be the fanciest of bakes, but I love a good, punchy lemon cake and it’s something I’ve really missed since going egg free. This recipe is loosely based on a basic cake recipe in Ms. Cupcakes Naughtiest Vegan Cakes In Town book. As I’ve said before, I can’t recommend this book highly enough for anyone starting out with vegan baking. This cake is light, fluffy, delicious and smack-you-in-the-face lemony. What’s not to like?!

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_7635

A great teatime treat, these vegan cookies will have even the most ardent peanut butter hater craving more! For non vegans and vegans alike, these cookies are sure to be loved by everyone. Make a double batch and watch them disappear!

These cookies are the perfect combination of caramel, peanuts and chocolate. I’m told it’s ‘just like a Snickers bar’ – but I honestly wouldn’t remember, it’s been so long now! Either way, these cookies are a really delicious, easy, one-bowl-mix-it-all-together recipe. They’re so good I may have eaten 3 in-between them coming out of the oven and being photographed… whoops!

Continuing my vegan baking streak, these cookies contain no dairy and no eggs, and you honestly wouldn’t know. With all the flavour and fat from the peanut butter, it’s one of those rare times you don’t miss the richness that dairy usually brings to a recipe.

You can use whatever type of peanut butter you have in these, and the end result will vary accordingly. I use an all natural, no added sugar, crunchy variety; I love the little pieces of peanut in the cookies and personally think the recipe is sweet enough. However, I’m really keen to try it with smooth peanut butter, and if you use a variety with sugar in it, consider reducing the sugar in the recipe a little.

This recipe is based on a recipe from a vegan baking book that I absolute love and would highly recommend – Ms Cupcake: The Naughtiest Vegan Cakes In Town. Full of all sorts of vegan sweet treats, I’m yet to come across a recipe that hasn’t been a roaring success.
