First Prize Vegan Chocolate Brownies

‘Hitch Codes’ editorial by V Carre, via Pinterest Hi everyone. Long time no see! Goddamn. So… what’s up with the hiatus? The last several months have been a roller coaster but I am back on track and back to Kitchen Rebellion. Skip the next paragraph if you kinda don’t care and just want to see…

Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am Banana Cake

  For the last six months I have had my head down studying Patternmaking at Fashion Tech. Today we graduated! This is the course that I had to leave, because of my health foibles, four years ago, so it has been a poignant day. I am proud of myself and excited for the present and…

Apricot & Berry Vegan Mini Crumbles

Image via Pinterest   Last night after dinner I was craving something sweet, but was in one of those moods where spending a lot of time making dessert happen was not at all on the cards. My solution? An easy, old school fruit crumble. The only hard part about this whole gig, is leaving the…

Before You Go Go Banana-Walnut Breakfast Muffins

Skate Rock Jam by Bicicleta Sem Freio |   I made a round o’ these last night and, oh man, the delicious, warm aroma of vanilla, banana and walnuts filling the room is something I need more of in my life! One of the best things about making muffins, cakes, cookies et. al, is that…

Sweet & Simple Vegan Raspberry Muffins

Art by Brian Ewing via Ant Baena   I love how easy these muffins are to throw together; I made a batch while prepping a quick sauce for tonight’s dinner (tofu-chili enchiladas – damn good, and resting happily in my belly as I type). Raspberries are definitely my go-to berry, but you might want to…

Vanilla-Lime Tea Cakes

Quote via Ffffound   I am going through a bit of a lime phase at the moment. Lime compliments so many flavours and it blends beautifully with vanilla in this recipe to make fragrant, light, tasty lil cakes. Awesomely, they take no time at all to throw together – the longest part will be waiting…

Chocolate-Pecan Brownie Loaf

Kielo S/S13 via VFiles   This recipe is a kind of Frankenstein creation, part loaf, part brownie. I can’t decide whether it is a brownie-style loaf or a loaf-style brownie. Either way, it tastes damn good! Chocolately, chewy, moist and delicious, it is perfect with a cup of Earl Grey, or underneath a big dollop…

Vegan Lemon-Lime Mini Cupcakes

Image via Laws of Modern Man   Mini cupcakes are the best! I can’t believe it took me so long to bring these bite-sized morsels into my life. This recipe makes around 2 1/2 dozen cupcakes. They bake up light and moreish with a subtle citrus flavour; the perfect post-dinner treat! If you can’t get…

Caramel Cashew Cupcakes

Art via Ffffound |   There is something about the combination of cashews and caramel that is just so, so right. This recipe has a bunch of steps (it’s really a three-recipes-in-one deal, after all) but everything is quick and easy to whip up. It won’t take nearly as long as you might think, and…

Big Shot Chocolate-Almond Fudge Brownies (Gluten-Free & Amazing)

Bowie, via Ffffound   There is something innately satisfying about a big, chocolate-y chunk of homemade brownie. This is my take on the Choctacular Brownies recipe over at Vegan Baking (which, by the way, is a jaw-dropping resource for dairy free bakers; vegan croissants, anyone?). My version is gluten-free, giving the recipe a knockout combo…

Gluten-Free Lemon Vanilla Cake with Creamy Lemon Frosting

Via Coco de Coeur @ Tumblr   This moist, moreish cake is my tweak of Sugar Mama’s Gluten-Free Vanilla Cake, an awesome recipe that I would recommend to everyone exploring the world of gluten-free vegan baking. It is also proof that, with the right combinations of ingredients, gluten-free baking doesn’t sacrifice flavour or texture at…
