• Leftover Chocolate Cake Cookies

    Don’t bake whilst under the influence of alcohol. I learned this the hard way: when I had to start baking a second birthday cake (for my mum), starting at 10 pm at night, after the first turned out too dry. Still, I found the silver lining to my baking debacle. Leftover chocolate cake cookies!

  • Lemon Drizzle Energy Balls (Nakd Copycat!)

    Hi my name’s Luci and I like to snack. There, I said it. If I can’t get my hands on an apple (it’s a real addiction at this point..) then I quite like Nakd bars – especially the “Crunch” ones but recently, also their new Lemon Drizzle bar. It’s like an actual lemon drizzle cake but in a bar. Made of nuts! But, they’re really hard to find (and also.. not cheap)! Ergo, I made my own lemon drizzle energy balls instead. You could easily shape them into bars if you prefer too.

  • Sinful Chocolate Fudge Muffins (vegan)

    Chocolate,let me count the ways I love thee. In cupcakes, in brownies, in pancakes, in porridge, in muffins, on its own… are there any other ways? Oh! In ice-cream, and in milkshakes. And hot. I can’t think of any more? That was basically the primary reason behind making chocolate fudge muffins. The second was that I had a bag of dairy free fudge that was just crying out to be used.

  • Mini Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies (gluten free , vegan)

    Last week, I really wanted some cookies. I know what started it – it wasn’t a random craving. At work there is a tin full of biscuits (similar to cookies, for the Americans among you but smaller, and usually with more of a crisp bite). The problem, as I’m sure you can imagine, was that I couldn’t have any! So there I was, 3pm, hankering for a biscuit with my decaf coffee and denied. Utter dismay! That evening I set about making my first batch of mini delights: these mini peanut butter shortbread cookies!

  • Homemade Vegan Scones

    The scone: something I always think of as quintessentially British. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like a scone and jam – but I know several (myself included) who don’t like tea. However, so far all of the supermarket scones I check the ingredients of aren’t suitable for vegans. Gah! It mean that in the last couple of years, I’ve had scones about… twice. Enter: making my own vegan scones!
