Chocolate Chestnut Spread (df, gf, sf, vegan)

This recipe was an experiment on a dull day last week. 'Second Lockdown' had just begun in England, the US election was causing some unsettling background anxiety and I'd just had two fairly sizeable bad pieces of news (this is 2020 after all, nothing is allowed to go right is it?!). I'd foraged a bag … Continue reading Chocolate Chestnut Spread (df, gf, 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! My youngest child is both dairy and soy intolerant and so making my own soy-free yoghurt has been … Continue reading Dairy & Soy-Free Yoghurt Recipe

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! The regular toaster pastries are choc full of wheat, dairy and sugar and so they haven't made an appearance in the house for quite some time! 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.

Elderflower Drizzle Cake (sf, df, gf, vegan)

To me elderflowers herald the end of Spring and the beginning of Summer and their sweet and fragrant blooms are perfect for making cordial.

(Elderflower Ice Pops are also a winner in this house and these lolly … Continue reading Elderflower Drizzle Cake (sf, df, gf, vegan)

Rhubarb Upside Down Cake (gf, df, sf, vegan)

I love rhubarb and we were lucky enough to inherit a couple of crowns of the stuff in the garden of where we currently live.
