  • 30 ' Prep. Time

A sweet, crumbly, moist and moreish dessert is something you just can't ignore. This recipe combines the wholesome quality of a classic sweet loaf with the can't-get-enough-of-you hypnosis found only in the very best dessert, all in a cruelty free package.

  • 45 ' Prep. Time

Lemon cake is totally underrated. Sure, it's hard to go past a rich chocolate cake or a warm doughnut, but a nice lemon cake is fresh, light and has just the right amount of tang.

Sultana and Cinnamon English Muffins

Sultana and Cinnamon English Muffins

  • 2 h Prep. Time
  • 8 Serves
This is the second English muffin recipe I've posted today, which should give you a sense of how much I love bread. There's something particularly delightful about English muffins, versatile enough to use for sandwiches, as a scone alternative, and as a base for both sticky jams and savoury toppings.

With a sweet cherry filling, a creamy coconut layer, a soft chocolate sponge and a rich ganache drip, my version of the famous Black Forest Cake is the dessert your next dinner party, festive event or birthday celebration needs. It's vegan and easy to make, and can easily be made gluten free for your Coeliac friends. All of the elements can be made in advance and the cake and ganache can be frozen, making it stress-free as well as delightfully delicious!

Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka

Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka

  • 2 h Prep. Time
  • 8 Serves
Babka always makes a wonderful dessert, morning tea snack or sweet treat for sharing. It's made up of that winning combination of bread and chocolate, which are two of my favourite things, and is so versatile allowing for different types of fillings, spices, and flavours. If you're not planning on serving it for a group, cut it into pieces, place in the freezer and heat when you're ready to enjoy (the chocolate will melt a little too - yum!).

Vegan Opera Cake

Vegan Opera Cake

Vegan Opera Cake

  • 3 h Prep. Time
  • 12 Serves

I love coming up with decadent, extravagant and indulgent desserts, especially when the results are so fabulous! My Vegan Opera Cake combines a fluffy sponge, a creamy buttercream, a rich coffee syrup and a smooth chocolate ganache. It takes time, concentration and effort, but the results are well worth it. It's looks beautiful as the feature of a high tea, morning tea or party platter, and can be made in advance and frozen until needed. It's a rich and complex cake that will hit all the right spots. 

*Try not to confuse the layers. Your opera cake should be made up of (from top to bottom): croustillant, sponge, coffee syrup, buttercream, sponge, coffee syrup and ganache.

Super Soft Hot Cross Buns

Super Soft Hot Cross Buns

Super Soft Hot Cross Buns

  • 3 h Prep. Time
  • 12 Serves

I was speaking to a Ukrainian friend who asked what kind of food we enjoy in Australia during Easter. I thought about it and said, 'We don't really have any Easter specific food, except for maybe chocolate eggs.' Shameful! How could I forget about the magnificent hot cross bun! 

Store bought varieties of this soft and filling treat usually use dairy and eggs, and have loads of sugar added on top of the already sweet dried fruit. My Super Soft Hot Cross Buns are not only free of dairy and eggs, but are lower in sugar than your average bun. They take patience and a keen eye, but you'll be so satisfied when you smell your glorious warm buns in the oven (that sounds weird but I assure you I'm being genuine), and feel a fabulous sense of accomplishment. In my experience, any kind of bread or pastry making is really rewarding.

You can add extra dried fruit, mixed peel or whatever you have on hand, and more sugar if you like a sweet bun. They taste divine when warmed up, but can store in an airtight container for a couple days and freeze well. This recipe makes 12 big ones, but you can divide the mixture differently if you want them smaller - just heat them up when you're ready to eat, add a schmeeeeer of vegan butter go for gold.
