Can't believe I missed Christmas

Well, I was so busy over Christmas I forgot to blog about all the great food. Redwoods fake meats, roast potatoes, heaps of veggies, gravy, soup, pepperjack and breadcrumb cheezly (sooo delicious, but seems to be a seasonal product as I can't find it now) moo free chocs, vegebears, vegetable pies, loads of fruit, trifle, chocolate cake, custard, soya cream, sosage rolls, spring rolls, samosas, just one big lovely gluttonous feast :P

Now it's January, and my New Year's Resolution is to bake more. I made chocolate cake on the 1st, but haven't made anything since, but I have been eating plenty of cakes, like:

Mama Cucina Vegan Cheesecake:

Mr Kipling Treacle Tart:

Asda's apple and blackcurrant pies

For some ideas of other quick fix vegan deserts, on Hogmany we made a super quick trifle using nice biscuits as the base, strawberry jelly and a tin of fruit, let the jelly set for about an hour and a half, add alpro custard and thick vegan cream and a shaving of dark choc and voila! We also put cointreau in though and I think it was too much because it was all I could taste!

Here are other supermarket bought deserts for easy vegan sweet eating:

Ice Cream

Jam Tarts
I have been told co-op bakery donuts but not sure if that's still the case... if anyone knows, tell me!

Can hopefully post a fuller blog soon!


  1. Wow I had no idea Mr Kipling's Treacle Tart is vegan! As soon as Lent's over I'm going to get one! The Co Op's jam AND custard donuts are both vegan :)

  2. Amazing!! Thanks :) Yeah treacle tart is tha bomb with some soya cream... mmmmmm.

    Need to get me some donuts! Actually I ate two home made pain au chocolats and 2 montezumas praline mini eggs already, maybe should wait a bit for the donuts! :)

  3. Btw I don't know if you saw it already but my chocolate post was 'All because the lady loves'. I'm going to do my easter egg post soon! :)
