Ginger and Apricot Breakfast Bread

Quarantine Kitchen Series Since the outbreak of Covid-19 I have been *more than usual* thinking about the types of food to feed my family. Although I have a small library of cookery books, it’s proving to be of little value since I can’t shop in the way I otherwise would. So I’ve been putting my […]

Date and Prune Brownies

Chunky but light! I believe this recipe was originally taken from the Vegan Society which *like most recipes* I have added, subtracted and generally done my own thing until I feel it reflects me and my naughty little taste buds.

Vegan Pistachio, Fig and Nutmeg Cake

This is a lovely tasty simple cake to bake. I have experimented with both fresh and ground nutmeg and both work well but if you really want that aromatic flavour I would suggest using fresh nutmeg. Unfortunately my photographs do not do this cake justice as the pistachios really give it a vibrant burst of […]
