Labor Day Loaf (dairy-free, gluten-free, no refined sugar)

August is coming to a close and soon autumn will start creeping upon us. University has already started in the US and I’ve been watching the new freshmen move into their dorms and my roommates into their houses and it’s been painful. I’m counting down the days until Continue reading

Turning 21 with a Vegan Chocolate Birthday Cake

It’s pure fate that I left America at the bitter age of 20 and turned 21 here. 21 in England is only a milestone age because it came across the pond from America, you can’t do anything new. In America, 21 is when the world is suddenly Continue reading

California raisin protein granola (dairy-free, sugar-free, vegan)

I’m always on the lookout for healthy recipes and my sister suggested we make granola because it was easier and cheaper than buying the stuff, with half the sugar too! So I figured, why not make this a ‘Cali themed’ post with some healthy, refined sugar free granola, made with jumbo oats, protein powder, pecans, walnuts and california raisins. I find eating sugar makes me hungry again really quickly, while this granola is a lot more wholesome and filling, and makes a Continue reading

1st Anniversary Post: 2 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Mousse (and a showstopper cake)

Hello! So it’s apparently my first anniversary since creating this blog, would you believe it? I’m very sorry I’ve been a lazy git and have vast periods of inactivity, it’s not easy juggling university, essays, exams and a year long trip to America! I felt like I needed to celebrate this year and realised that I’ve had these photos sitting around on my laptop for a few months now. So, whilst I am ill and bed bound, I feel like it is time to give you guys another recipe thats worth celebrating! I also have exams looming to I’m really procrastinating to the max right now, so an even better use of my time is to at least make you salivate huh? .. Continue reading

Dairy free brownies

Mayonnaise chocolate brownies (dairy-free, vegan)

I hit a real wall this month. I kinda lost my liking for cake. Sure, it’s edible and all, but it just hasn’t excited me recently. I know, it’s a scandalous admittance, but it’s bumming me out as much as it is you, okay? I think me and cake just need a little break y’know? Some me time. Some time with the cookies and no bake recipes of the world.  I’m just going to have some time with my precious nutribullet smoothies that everyone thinks I’m crazy for liking. Yeah. Dear cake, I’ll come back for you on a rainy day. I’ll learn to cherish you once more someday…
P.S. Brownies are definitely a cake grey area/exception.

The 1,1,1,1 cup coconut creation (Vegan, Dairy free)

Um, hi. I know it’s been too long since I last posted anything here but with my hectic christmas baking and non stop working to pay the rent, time has been a little more precious than usual. I think we all know the feeling of collapsing into bed after being run off our feet all day. I neglected the gym (which is my life’s staple apart from baking), I ate far too much chocolate and food, and I lazed around. If I give you cake as an apology, do you think you have it in your hearts to forgive me? Please? I’ll give you a nice big slice 😛
