Lavender & Ginger Biscuits (gf, df, sf, vegan)

These biscuits … Continue reading Lavender & Ginger Biscuits (gf, df, sf, vegan)

Dairy & Soy-Free Yoghurt Recipe

Sometimes it can be tricky or expensive to find a soy-free vegan yoghurt at the supermarket, even if there is a lot more choice now than there was 10 years ago when I first went dairy free!

Gluten Free ‘Breakfast Pastries’ (df, sf, gf, vegan)

My eldest requested I make 'Pop Tarts' a few weeks ago and well, I aim to please!

In fact I'm not even sure that my youngest has ever had … Continue reading Gluten Free ‘Breakfast Pastries’ (df, sf, gf, vegan)

Gluten Free Raspberry Brownies (gf, sf, df, vegan)

We're lucky that our garden came with raspberry canes and we always get a bumper crop from them.

Flowering Currant Frozen Dessert (df, gf, sf, vegan)

This delicately floral, pink dessert is not quite sorbet, not quite ice cream, so I've gone with 'frozen dessert' as the best way of describing it!

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins (gf, df, sf, vegan)

As I've mentioned before, I'm a bakery for breakfast kinda girl!
