Orange and Lemon Cakes

Tried and tested vegan desserts

So I’m not much of a chef, but I love baking vegan recipes! Since turning vegan I’ve found it so hard to satisfy my sweet tooth, with most store-bought desserts containing either milk, butter or egg. Here’s some tried and tested recipes I’ve found from some wonderful websites and fellow bloggers.  My photos don’t quite do them justice, so please check out their websites using the links and give them a try yourself.

Lemon Cake and Orange Cake

The image above was my attempt at the Vegan Lemon Cake recipe from BBC Good Food I decided to make one Lemon Cake and one Orange Cake. Following exactly the same recipe just changing the fruits. I did put slightly more juice and zest into the cakes, and found I had to cook them for longer at a lower heat in my oven. The result though was beautifully fresh, zesty, moist cakes, probably a little more dense than the recipe intended but was lapped up nonetheless by my family.

Healthy Home made Twix bars

These are absolutely delicious and taste just like the real thing! Rachel from Bakerita has managed to create these twix bars, which are vegan, paleo and gluten-free!. The recipe is really easy to follow and they are oh so much easier to eat!

No Bake Chocolate Raspberry Tart

Another delicious recipe from Rachel at Bakerita this chocolate raspberry tart is again vegan paleo and gluten-free! So easy to make, deliciously creamy and chocolatey with a bite of fresh raspberry, what more could you want.

Vegan Peaches and Cream pancakes

Lauren from Rabbit and Wolves has created this light and fluffy pancake recipe which is completely vegan and uses plant-based milk, apple cider vinegar, flour and baking powder. I decided to switch it up a bit and instead of using peaches I used classic blueberries, with lots of maple syrup on top!

Peanut Butter Cups

These absolutely melt in your mouth! Demeter from Beaming Baker has created these creamy cups of goodness using just 5 ingredients. I used standard size cupcake cases but had to eat just half at a time as theyre so delightfully rich. Next time I’d like to make mini peanut butter cups for bite size cups.

Vegan Lotus Biscoff Cheesecake

Biscoff being accidentally vegan is a real treat, and Holly Jade from The Little Blog of Vegan is the creator of this knockout recipe. I made it recently for a family party and everyone was gobsmacked that it was totally vegan. The creamy cashews and coconut milk base with a hint of biscoff was melt in your mouth. Lets face it, who doesn’t love biscoff!

No Bake vegan chocolate cream pie

This was one of my first recipes I made when I became vegan, created by Natalie from Feasting on Fruit and was my first experience using medjool dates in a dessert recipe. *Warning* Please do not repeat my mistake and chuck them in the food processor without de-pitting them! They were whizzing around for about 10 minutes making a sound much like a helicopter before I realised what I had done! Once that disaster was closely avoided, the recipe came together beautifully.

So there it is, my tried and tested vegan desserts so far. Check out the websites for recipes and other inspiration and get baking!

If on the other hand you’d rather skip the making and head straight to the eating here are a couple of my favourite vegan sweet treats you should definitely try if you haven’t already: Nakd bars and creamy dairy free Baileys!
