Vegan and Gluten-Free Forest Fruit Chocolate Cake

Love forest fruits? Love chocolate? I’m right with you. Combining these two great ingredients is something I’ve wanted to try for a while. There’s something very dark and earthy about it; a slight bitterness to the fruit that is deeply pleasant in combination with its indulgent chocolate surroundings. Harmonious, yet contrasting enough to arouse the…

With the summer comes the desire for light and delicious chilled puddings. Minimum fuss and maximum taste are a necessity as, in the warm weather, we want all of the pleasure and none of the work. This Vegan Chocolate and Hazelnut Butter Pudding ticks all the boxes. The only thing you really want to make…

Avocado Chocolate Cheesecake

If you want to impress family and friends with a chocolate dessert, this one will do it. This rich and creamy, beautifully soft chocolate cheesecake has a chocolate oat biscuit base and a deep, firm chocolate layer on top. This dessert is so chocolatey that I was able to say chocolate three times in one…

Four Layer Vegan Chocolate Oreo Cake

For most of the birthdays in the house I make some form of vegan chocolate cake. It’s almost always over-the-top extravagant, with its four layers of sponge and insanely-rich chocolate filling and surrounded by even more chocolate. The family love them, so I thought I’d share one of them with you here. I’ve used Oreo…

Vegan Chocolate Biscuits

Forgive my lack of posts recently. Launching my Vegan Cook School around the Christmas period has certainly taken up the majority of my time. Now that the school is open for business, it’s great to be back to writing recipes again. This is the start of Veganuary and the beginning of a vegan adventure for…

Super Easy Vegan Chocolate Mousse

Who doesn’t love the decadent feel of a spoonful of chocolate mousse on the tongue? As a vegan, you can’t just nip to the shops and buy one, but you can have one setting in the fridge a few minutes after you start making it, and that’s what we’re going to do here. For this…

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Caramel Slices

I made these for a buffet we were having recently. The idea behind them was a soft chocolate filling on pastry with a caramel topping, all cut into small squares for people to pick at as and when they wanted them. This is not a quick dessert to make, but the results are worth the…

Sticky Chocolate Pudding

This is essentially a gooey, sticky brownie, covered in rich chocolate sauce. Sound good? Read on. I wanted to create something that was similar to a sticky toffee pudding, only with chocolate, and that was also vegan and gluten-free. This dessert was the result. Soft and moist in the centre, extremely chocolatey, with a chocolate…

Double Chocolate & Pecan Cookies – Vegan and Gluten Free

These cookies are dark and rich, soft inside with a crisp outer coating. The essence of what a cookie should be, with the added benefit of being both vegan and gluten-free. The pecan nuts add an extra depth and crunch, something that appeals to me. If you have a nut allergy, though, these can be…
