Simply Vegan Baking is a fresh fun book by the first vegan contestant on Great British Bake-off. This Yorkshire lass is on a mission to show how familiar recipes can be made without eggs, dairy or butter. Use a silicone baking liner and vegan butters with no palm oil.
Most pastry contains palm oil, so make your own, which freezes well. Keep recipes from pets due to unsafe ingredients (chocolate, citrus, nutmeg, fresh dough etc). Read food safety for people and pets.
From simple cakes and traybakes and bread to desserts and showstopping cakes, the faff-free recipes include:
- Oat cookies
- Lemon meringue pie
- Carrot cake
- Salted caramel cupcakes
- Cinnamon rolls
- Banoffee pie slices
- Black forest gateau
- White chocolate raspberry blondies
- Triple chocolate cookies
