BLACK BEAN CHOCOLATE CAKE

I’m not really the type of person to pass on a piece of cake– the saying doesn’t exist for nothing, and I don’t think I’m alone in admitting that eating a piece of cake is a really easy (and delightful) feat. Cake is synonymous with indulgence and let’s face it, there’s something about being a little bit naughty that makes …

Now that the weather is warming up, who wants to use their oven? Spring and Summer are all about easy-to-make snacks you can store in the fridge or pantry, grab, go and enjoy. There’s honestly nothing easier than energy bars/protein balls/bliss balls… whatever you want to call them. Simply throw your nuts, seeds, dried fruit and various flavorings into a …

You know those friends who never invited you to their house, but happily accepted every invitation to visit yours? I’ve never been one of them. Quite the opposite really. My house has always been the drop in house of sorts– after school, on weekends when there was nothing to do… I suppose I get it from my Mum who has …

There’s nothing better than Darrell Lea rocky road…. That perfect combination of crunchy and salty peanuts, fluffy marshmallow and toasted coconut got me every time. Trying to replicate this perfect model proved impossible, because how can you make or find a vegan marshmallow without refined sugar, gelatine or egg whites? They say when you can’t beat em’ join em’, so I’ve …

COCONUT AND LIME AND PASSIONFRUIT CAKE

Kate Baked Goods, Cake, Dessert, Recipes, Sugar Free, Summer, Sweet, Vegan 4 Comments

Cake is really not healthy, and really not vegan. Refined white flour, refined white sugar, eggs, cows milk, mix it together, throw it into a pan, bake it and voila. I always wonder who came up with the idea of putting specific ingredients together for recipes we take for granted now, like cake. Did the person set out to make something ‘light, …

CHIA PUDDING WITH TAMARIND AND KAFFIR LIME CARAMEL

Chia pudding would have to be one of my favourite breakfast recipes. In 5 minutes, you have yourself a thick and moreish pudding that you can adapt to whatever flavour you fancy. The idea for this chia pudding came to me after a trip to Cabramatta. Walking down John Street is a feast for the eyes, mainly because of the …

My Mum hates eggplant. She has refused to eat it after a bad experience of eating eggplant antipasto style– too much olive oil. If you can remember my last post, growing up what my Mum didn’t like informed what I too didn’t like, plus more. The list was extensive; non-Cadbury chocolate, eggplant, olives, white chocolate, speckly bananas… I don’t remember when …

CHOCOLATE, CARAMEL AND BANANA ICECREAM BARS

Kate Chocolate, Dessert, Gluten Free, Raw, Simple, Sugar Free, Sweet, Vegan 2 Comments

I never liked Magnum ice creams. I’m not sure if it’s because I was never allowed them (my parents always maintained a $2.00 rule at the service station) or because my Mum had brainwashed me to only like Cadbury chocolate. Whatever the reason, I was 19 when I tried my first one and to be honest, it was pretty underwhelming. Don’t …
