Vegan Lemon Meringue Pie

Vegan Lemon Meringue Pie

WARNING! This is not a healthy cake! Its full of sugar and white flour.

But on the other hand its my little James’ favourite cake and I had to perfect the vegan version of it. So here it is your treat that is to be enjoyed sparingly but nevertheless enjoyed.

Aquafaba is very temperamental so let me know how it works for you. Every tin of chickpeas could be different in aquafaba quality so maybe try different brands if it doesn’t work well at first. I had a few terrible outcomes but this one turned out perfect.

So enjoy!

Raw vegan Chocolate Chilli Cake

Raw vegan Chocolate Chilli Cake

So I’ve been wanting to make this cake forever and never had the time or always forgot.

I’ve always loved the Chocolate Chilli bar by a well known brand when I wasn’t vegan and I always wanted to make a dessert that recreated that combination.

Now last week I finally made it! The Chocolate Chilli Cake. And I’ve been talking about it since…my colleagues will know all about the hunt for Birdseye chillies as well. All day Friday that’s all I was talking about. No I didn’t actually do any work but was looking for a place to buy them.  And do you know what by the end of the day I found a place only a 10 minute drive from work. Success.

Anyway some people weren’t convinced by the idea of quote “food that hurts you” combined with chocolate and some were intrigued.

So when I brought it in the following week all of them loved it. “Maria I have to say, compliments on the cake, I would never have ordered it if I had seen it on a menu, but it works so well”. Yaaaay that was the person who doesn’t like food that hurts.

The funny thing about this cake is and it is not intended whatsoever but I think that’s the combo chocolate and chilli, that you can only taste the chilli at the very last moment when the chocolate flavour is nearly gone and you get that kick, that tingles your mouth. Its unbelievable.

Please guys try it out, I think that’s my new favourite cake so id love for you to try it.

As always tag me in your recreations on Instagram, Id love to hear from you.

Mango Chocolate Cheesecake

Mango Chocolate Cheesecake

Do you like mango?

I absolutely love mango and I think even though it is not the most common combination, I think it goes very well with chocolate. But what doesnt go with chocolate right? So to give my new cheesecake a summery feel and taste I combined the juiciness and sweetness of mango with a dark rich chocolate and created the summer mango chocolate cheesecake.

This treat like any most of my other cakes is refined sugar free and uses only natural ingredients. But like any other cake it is a treat and shouldnt be eaten too often. It does contain coconut oil and cashews so its high in fat and calories. one small piece goes a long way and is rich and filling.

Please dont be put off though, it is delicious and I really hope you like it.

For this recipe I used Oatly Chocolate milk as well as Oatly Organic Milk and I absolutely loved it.

As always if you don try it, please comment below or tag me on in you photo on Instagram and let me know how you like it. 

Until then enjoy!

Vegan Blueberry Tiramisu

Vegan Blueberry Tiramisu

This, my friends, could possible be one of the best desserts I ever made!

I am not joking the feedback I got was amazing. And guess what Its NOT my recipe.

The blueberry bit is, but the rest belongs to Amrita www.crazyvegankitchen.com or @crazyvegankitchen on Instagram.

Ever since I saw her original Vegan Riramisu recipe I really wanted to make it but was too lazy to make a sponge for it. Well then I saw her Match Tiramisu and I was totally in love with it. I had to make it. 

Unfortunately not everyone loves matcha I had to come up with something else, heres where the blueberries come in. My freezer was full of blueberries (Im the kind of person who buys them every time I do the shopping, which is quiet often) so I thought lets try blueberries.

Guess what it turned out beautiful. I made it for a birthday party and I came home with one (they are big portions those glasses I had).

I was very tempted to devour it myself (remember I am still on my sugardetox) but had a tiny teeny bit of the cream and gave the rest to my cake loving colleague.

So here we are thats the story of the Blueberry Tiramisu and below all this talk is the recipe.

Enjoy

Oreo Mint Cheesecake Slices

Oreo Mint Cheesecake Slices

There is yet a person I have to meet (except my youngest monkey) who doesnt like the combination of chocolate and mint. Thats why I guess mint chocolate bars are such sellers, right?

Think after eight (I wish they were vegan) and me not liking chocolate by itself, minty chocolate is one chocolate Id always eat. Thats why I thought a minty chocolate cheesecake bar would be such a lovely idea. 

Although I am not the biggest fan of shop bought treats oreos have always been my favourite biscuit since I went vegan. When I then discovered that the new minty oreo is also vegan I had to try it and what is a better way to try something than out it into a cheesecake?!!??.

So here it is all you chocolate mint cheesecake lovers! The Oreo Mint Cheesecake Slice. As always when you make it please tag me on Instagram, id love to see your creations.

Vegan Tiramisu Cake

Vegan Tiramisu Cake

I really dont know how I didnt come up with this before. Tiramisu Cake, right, so so easy to veganise and so so delicious.

Maybe I didnt want to mess around with it or maybe I thought its too difficult to do or maybe i just didnt think of it. Weird me being coffee and cake lover…

But in the end I did come up with a recipe. Now this one doesnt have the booze in it so it really is a healthier version but it tastes just as good. I used Percol Coffee Beans which I absolutely love and which you can get here.

I will try create a boozy recipe but its hard when my kids are around and they want to try all cakes and wont take no for an answer. This is why this one was created at night and hidden straight away.

Anyway, I wont bore you any longer so here it comes. 

As always let me know what you think and tag me on Instagramm if you recreate it.
