Vegan Party Cookies

  • 25 ' Prep. Time
  • 20 Serves

Bite sized chunks of sugar, crunchy and plant-based goodies, this recipe is a staple for when I need a quick, crowd-pleasing treats. I used vegan Smarties, but unfortunately the only brand I could find locally didn't hold its colour, so they aren't as vibrant as I had hoped. Nonetheless, they're fun, easy to make and really tasty, which make them the perfect party treat! 

*And if you know of a great brand of vegan Smarties or M&M's, comment on this post to let me know!

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.

  • 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

  • 03 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. 

Acai, Raspberry and Chocolate Slice

Acai, Raspberry and Chocolate Slice

  • 02 h 40 ' Prep. Time
  • 10 Serves
I can never have enough healthy dessert options, particularly to take with me to events where my options are highly processed, non-vegan cakes, or a cold glass of water. This slice makes for a very mild, low sugar snack, that is made with wholesome, healthy ingredients and sweetened lightly with dates. It looks fabulous at high teas, kitchen teas or as part of a dessert display, and stores in the freezer so lasts for several months. If you have allergies, you can easily substitute the flour or berries with something more friendly, and decorate as you see fit. And if your sweet tooth needs a little more, simply add a few extra dates into the berry cream mixture and you'll be back on track.
