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!

Vegan Sticky Date Puddings

  • 01 h Prep. Time
  • 8 Serves
Although I try to keep a healthy, clean and wholesome diet, some occasions call for a rich, delicious and utterly indulgent dessert, and my Sticky Date Puddings with Whiskey Caramel Sauce falls right into that category. This dessert is made by combining a soft, sweet date pudding, a creamy vanilla buttercream, crunchy gingerbread snaps and a thick, whiskey infused caramel sauce. Served with vegan ice-cream, it's guaranteed to impress anyone with a sweet tooth, and is the perfect treat to present at special occasions, festive celebrations and dinner parties. 

Vegan Raspberry Turnovers

Vegan Raspberry Turnovers

  • 20 ' Prep. Time
  • 10 Serves
It's always exciting to create a recipe that includes vegan pastry, especially when it tastes as good as this one does! Making your own pastry does require a time commitment, but it's absolutely worth it and tastes just as good as the non-vegan versions you used to enjoy. This recipe uses my chocolate croissant pastry, but is filled with a sour raspberry filling and topped with a lemon glaze. I like to make a batch of these and freeze them for when last minute friends come by, or serve them for a lavish morning tea for vegans and non-vegans alike. 

Vegan Apple Pies

Vegan Apple Pies

Vegan Apple Pies

  • 1 h Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
Apple pie is one of those classic, hearty and comforting desserts that often takes me back to a particular time, place or memory. It's so yummy when served warm with a scoop of ice-cream, and there's not reason vegans have to miss out! My recipe is easy to follow and makes four individual pies or one small share pie, and uses the technique I read about years ago (I wish I remember where!) of microwaving the apple filling prior to cooking the pie in the oven, giving the apple an extra chance to cook through and leaving you with a soft filling and crunchy crust. It's another one of my recipes that also freezes well, so make a batch before a dinner party and reheat in the oven just before your lucky guests arrive! 

Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka

Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka

Chocolate and Cinnamon Babka

  • 02 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!).

They're easy to whip up and look fantastic as part of a morning tea or party platter, and in addition to being egg free, dairy free and vegan, can easily be made gluten free too. Once baked they can be frozen until ready to serve, or stored at room temperature in an airtight container.

Vegan Opera Cake

Vegan Opera Cake

Vegan Opera Cake

  • 03 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

  • 04 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! 

Vegan Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate Croissants)

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.

It's made with a rich brownie base, a chewy cherry and coconut filling and a creamy chocolate ganache. It's gluten free, and the brownie recipe can also be used to make regular brownies (just throw in some walnuts!). It's addictive, so eat at your own risk.
