Vegan Doughnut Holes

This was my final Veganuary recipe I made and I can honestly say it was also the BEST! I have made many vegan savoury dishes but haven’t really focused to heavily on sweet vegan recipes. I have tried vegan waffles and cookies which came out delicious but I still wasn’t convinced that those vegan desserts were BETTER than non-vegan ones until I tried these doughnuts. These doughnuts are honestly better than normal doughnut holes I’ve made before. They may not be as fluffy but they are super crispy on the outside, the taste is amazing and they are perfect to dip in all sorts of dips and I would choose to make these not as a “replacement” for normal doughnuts, but because this recipe is just delicious but also happens to be vegan at the same time!

Passion Fruit Macarons

If you follow me on social media you will know that I posted these at the beginning of Spring, around Easter time. There’s something about the sun coming out for the first few days since winter that makes me want to make something light and special!

GBBO Challenge Week Ten – Ginger Biscuits

Ah, the finale! What a series it has been. As much as I have loved this season, the finale didn’t have as many exciting bakes as it usually does, especially not to the creative bakes they’ve been tested on in previous weeks.

Cake Pops from Leftover Cake!

This is a super quick and easy recipe if you have leftover cake from trimmings or if you’ve made too many layers and want to use one to make something else! Whatever the reason, this recipe is for people who have none of the fancy cake pop utensils and just want something to make instead of throwing away good cake!

Caramel Week! A first for the GBBO and pretty new to me too. I rarely attempt to make caramel, too many disasters and too many burns when I do! But watching the episode made me feel inspired to give it another go. This cake is absolutely scrumptious! It is a perfect Autumn treat and would even go great at a Halloween party!

GBBO Challenge Week Two – Sparkly Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

It’s biscuit week! Whilst I love baking, I have got to admit… biscuits can be a little average and tend not to get the big “WOW” moment when you put a plateful down in front of your guests. However, this week on bake off Stacey’s chocolate sandwich cookies were covered in edible GLITTER!!! I mean HELLO could we get anymore snazzy?
