Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside and covered with sweet, flaked almonds, this recipe is the treat you need! My Sticky Almond Buns take a little longer than muffins or cupcakes and require a few extra ingredients, but they're worth it. They make a lovely dessert or morning tea snack, freeze well and have the moreish quality that make it hard to stop at one. As always, they're vegan but your non-vegan friends will never know!

I'm very excited to share this recipe with you, which is loosely inspired by Maggie Beer's Neenish Tarts, though with a few key changes and of course, veganised. These mini tarts are such a delightful treat, and although there are a few components, it's worth the time it takes to make them. This recipe includes a lovely pastry recipe that can be adapted for any recipe, a sweet cherry filling, a creamy buttercream and a chocolate glaze. Perfect for platters, parties and pig-out sessions.

I know people are very passionate about the type of brownies they like, and believe me, I'm not here to make enemies. For me, if it's packed with chocolate, it's a brownie worth meeting.

  • 50 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
As someone who usually orders desserts that have the word 'chocolate' in them, I often overlook and underestimate many other tasty options. But when I tried the Caramel Condensed SoyMilk from Vegan Perfection, I knew I had to make a vegan version of a banoffee pie.

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.

  • 30 ' Prep. Time
  • 12 Serves
I discovered the glorious, crumbly and delightful Lotus Biscoff during an afternoon tea, where I was scanning the ingredients list of a range of biscuits presented to me. I was about to give up and just sip on some black tea (yum!), when I discovered that these delicious treats are not only vegan, but versatile enough to make a range of vegan desserts.

Healthy Berry Slice

Healthy Berry Slice

Healthy Berry Slice

  • 30 ' Prep. Time
  • 8 Serves

As regular readers know, dessert is my favourite meal of the day. I often think about how surprisingly easy it was for me to become vegan, and yet how difficult I find it to skip dessert. Sure, dessert may not be the best thing for my teeth or waistline, but eating animal products has such a huge impact on the world around me, cutting it out and continuing to do so is easier than ever. As for dessert, we forge on!

My Healthy Berry Slice makes dessert much less sugary but still all kinds of sweet. The recipe uses very little sugar (but you can certainly add more, to taste) and is packed with wholesome, healthy ingredients. It freezes well and tastes great as a morning tea treat. 

Vegan Crepe Cake

Made with my lovely friends from Nature's Charm, this recipe is easy, tasty and the perfect celebration treat. My Vegan Crepe Cake combines a stack of crepes made using my classic recipe, layered with Nature's Charm Coconut Whipping Cream and topped with Nature's Charm Chocolate Fudge Sauce (links to products in the list of ingredients).

You can make the crepes in advance to save time before a special event, and serve with your favourite vegan ice-cream. Totally cruelty-free and delicious!

  • 15 ' Prep. Time

Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside and hot straight from the pan, weekend brunch just got a whole lot better. My Vegan French Toast is so easy to make it's ready in 30 minutes, and only requires a handful of ingredients you probably already have. While it's not the healthiest breakfast option, it is made with wholesome ingredients like banana, almond milk and linseed meal, can be created with that stale bread you're not sure what to do with, and makes for a perfect weekend indulgence. I drizzle mine with maple syrup but feel free to choose your own favourite toppings and go nuts!

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.

Apple Pastry Puffs

Apple Pastry Puffs

Apple Pastry Puffs

  • 4 h Prep. Time
  • 10 Serves
I love a good mini-pastry, for breakfast, dessert, as a snack, or for pretty much any meal quite frankly. This is a time consuming but easy recipe for a basic vegan puff pastry, with an apple filling that can be made without or without any added sugar. It's made with plenty of vegan butter and isn't so much a healthy treat, but if you avoid adding sugar to the filling it's a better option than many of the store-bought desserts. Feel free to experiment with fillings based on what you have handy!

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.

Vegan Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate Croissants)

  • 5 h Prep. Time
  • 16 Serves
Before I was a vegan I had a few lovely pastry recipes that I never expected to use again, and I pretty much gave up on enjoying store bough pastries as well. It wasn't until recently that I decided to attempt a vegan version of my favourite pastry, the pain au chocolat, which I'm excited to report turned out magnificently! This recipe is wonderfully easy to make but does take time and patience, and should definitely be enjoyed in moderation. Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate, jams or fruit, too! 

Chocolate Self-saucing Pudding

Chocolate Self-saucing Pudding

  • 15 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
One of the most common misconceptions about plant based food is that it never tastes as good as 'normal' food, and is made almost entirely of tofu and air. Anyone who has tasted well made vegan food knows this is so wrong, particularly when it comes to dessert. When you eat a non-vegan cake, are you enjoying it because you can taste the eggs and milk? Of course not! Not only are vegan desserts delicious and often even better than their non-vegan counterparts, they're cheaper and quicker to make.
