What’s it about: Vegan and plant-based eating have continued to explode in popularity over recent years, and with the nation’s collective love of baking, it was only a matter of time before these two delicious worlds collided. In The Little Book of Vegan Bakes, author Holly-Jade shares 80 of her favourite cake, muffin, pastry and dessert recipes that explore the process of successfully transforming traditional bakes like Victoria sponge cake and scones into satisfying plant-based alternatives, and emphasise that there is no need to sacrifice texture or flavour in the quest for the perfect vegan bake.
There are familiar favourites for the beginner, like chocolate orange fridge cake and golden syrup flapjacks, and challenges for the more advanced cook, like churros and honeycomb doughnuts. No matter what your experience level, this book is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Plus, there is an informative section of essential foundation recipes to build your skill level, like step-by-step tips for cake decoration, and a fundamental guide to tempering chocolate.
