To protest the absurd decision of kicking Liam off The Great British Bake Off, I've decided not to remake anything from the show this week and instead make one of my favourite cakes in the whole world. (Also old-style traditional baking is definitely not suitable for vegans - 60 eggs!!) The classic Cherry Bakewell… Continue reading Cherry Bakewells!
Week 7 of the Great British Bake Off - Italian Week. Admittedly pizza was the easiest option of the week to recreate, but I don't think my university budget/schedule/kitchen would allow me to make sfogliatelle! Photography is super dodgy as my housemates and I had a whole pizza night so the priority was to get to the… Continue reading PIZZA!
Week 6 of the Great British Bake Off - Pastry Week! My housemates requested I make a savoury pie (they are my official taste testers) so I thought I'd interrupt the excess of sweet stuff and try my hand at a savoury dish. Joe ate about a 1/3 during dinner and another 1/3 the next day… Continue reading Curried Vegetable Pie

These are the answer to WEEK TWO Great British (Vegan) Bake Off challenge - the sandwich biscuits. They're sort of like an oreo with a ton more filling and a delicious mocha… Continue reading Mocha Sandwich Biscuits!
This is the first of the Great British (Vegan) Bake Off series! The idea is to remake one of the challenges on the Great British Bake Off every week but make it vegan! Just trying to show that it's super easy to make 'normal' food without the death etc. These cupcakes are a remake of… Continue reading Pina Colada Cupcakes
