Recent Baking Adventures

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately. Things have been a little busy 'round these parts, & rather stressful too. I find baking to be fantastic for stress relief, & it's so nice to be able to share the results. Regular posting activity will resume shortly, but meanwhile, here are a few of my recent (vegan) baked offerings...

Cheesy Broccoli Tart with Almond Shortcrust Pastry

Cinnamon Coffee Cake from The Joy of Vegan Baking, with the addition of apples, & served with my own recipe for whipped cashew cream (that I'll be sharing on my blog soon!)

Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache, recipe from The PPK

Recent Kitchen Adventures

For the last couple of months I've been having a lot of fun trying out vegan recipes & experimenting with my own creations (some of which are best not talked about). I've bought a few new vegan cookbooks too (my favourites so far are Vegan Diner & Veganomicon), & I have to say, compared with some of the books I bought in the 80s & 90s, vegan cooking has come a long way! I thought you might like to take a look at some of my recent efforts... Anti-clockwise from top...chocolate tart, lime & ginger pie (with my own experimental soy cream recipe), grainy spelt bread (please excuse the messy kitchen!), basil mayonnaise, & roasted fennel pizza.
