Nutella Bagels

Happy World Nutella Day! No real reason for this day other than an American blogger called Sara Rosso in 2007 who loved Nutella so much she thought it deserved a holiday and we do too! For this day, I wanted to make something a little different that was maybe more challenging than just Nutella brownies or cupcakes. It was then when I went downstairs to make breakfast when I realised I had no bagels left to eat that the idea came to mind.

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!

Vegan Peanut Butter Waffles

Hello Veganuary! Anyone else feel like Veganuary has become huge this year, 2019? With Greggs releasing their infamous vegan sausage roll that all of us were waiting for as well as large companies like Pizza Hut and McDonalds also adopting vegan dishes, the amount of vegan conversations I’ve seen on social media is insane!

For Veganuary I wanted to create something that even non-vegans would be tempted to try. These waffles look and taste just like normal waffles (if not better). They are more dense, like a sweet bread rather than light and fluffy but the peanut butter makes them sweet and nutty. These would be perfect on their own with a sprinkle of fruit (or any toppings of your liking) but I also made a Maple Peanut Butter Syrup to drizzle over… which believe me, makes this dish!

Lemon Macarons with Swiss Meringue Buttercream

After finally mastering the macaron after plenty (and i mean PLENTY) of tries and fails, I have FINALLY been able to actually test new flavours and fillings. After making my Passionfruit Macarons which turned out so delicious, I wanted to make another flavour which was just as tasty.

Thats where these babies come in. When I first thought of doing a lemon macaron, I wanted to have a lemon macaron shell and a lemon filling. One of the most difficult things to make is a macaron shell and when I started adding lemon zest to them, they came out all bumpy and liquid flavourings would make the mixture runny. I decided that the macaron shell itself needed to be a normal macaron shell, coloured yellow and then the filling is what will pack a punch of flavour.

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!

These macarons are one of the easiest recipes out there, which for macarons is usually difficult to find! Filled with a tangy passionfruit curd, these are perfect for spring/summer BBQ’s or a gift for a loved one and is the perfect base recipe for you to add different flavourings and colours so get creative!
