#Breadbaking theme 20th November 2014

I’m sure the weeks get shorter. it doesn’t seem two minutes since I was writing the last theme up!

I am staying on theme with my baking today. I’m making some ‘milk rolls’ using soya milk. I’ve just adapted a none vegan recipe in the hope that it will work. It seems to be alright so far! It’s in the airing cupboard at the moment. I do like Thursdays. i have a short day at work and get to come home and do this in the Afternoon!

Lets have a look at what was shared during the #Breadbaking theme evening.

The ever lovely @Ephemerienne shared a great recipe for #pitta breads. #Apple butter #chocolate bread, My daily bread, Garlic breadAlmond Croissants, Pain “swirl” pommes cannelle, 

Kinda like bread baking.. @Leicveggie shared her Oatcake recipe. Another nice simple one here from @TheMoralMunch Chilli Gram Crackers.

Thank you to @Fettlevegan for sharing a yummy Cornbread recipe.  A lovely Spicy red and black pepper version! On yum, look at these #Lavender #scones.

Fancy Pizza? How about a #Calzone from @fullbelliesOAB. With a #cauliflower crust.  One of our favourites, Cheese, onion and ale bread.

This lovely recipe for #Focaccia from The edible craft was shared by @MarchpaneMedlar. It sounds so good!

Curry and Naan bread go together like…well.. curry and Naan bread! Check out this recipe from @vegsoup4thesoul and another Naan recipe here from @ChubbaNia.

A great pizza base recipe here from @PotatoStrong. I love this post from @vegancakeclub about their ever so tasty looking Bread Pies.

@PaulYoud has so many great Bread recipes, its a shame to list them. It’s better that you take your time and have a proper look at his #blog. Click  HERE for the link. Here are a couple of examples to whet your appetite Pain au Chocolat,

A nice short but sweet round up there!



#glutenfreebaking theme 30th October 2014.

Hello again! I hope you are well? If you are in the UK you will be well aware of the changing seasons! What happened!? T shirts on still, summer clothes still being worn and then oof… over night it was so cold! I’m going to complain…  ;o)

Anyway, lets have a look at some belly hugging recipes. That will surely put a smile on your face. the theme was #glutenfree baking. It was a slower night but we had some amazing recipes never the less! For this recipe round up, we are including Oats. You, as an allergy sufferer know what levels of possible cross contamination you have tolerate. It seems sensible to cater for all possibilities. This is a lovely #blog post from @Yogivegetarian about #glutenfree flours that they use.

Lets start with a recipe shared by our new friends @Spiceduk for their very own Oat and raisin cookies! Very nice!

Oat & Raisin Cookies

150g Gluten-Free Oats
150g Light Brown Sugar
150g Raisins
130g Margarine
90g Gluten-Free Plain Flour
90ml Unsweetened Soya Milk
1 tsp Gluten-Free Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5/190 degrees Celsius.
2. In a bowl, combine the oats, sugar, raisins, flour, baking powder and cinnamon.
3. Melt the margarine on a low heat and, in a separate bowl, combine with the soya milk and vanilla extract.
4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
5. Bake in 2 batches of 10 cookies on a silicone baking sheet for about 12 minutes. If the cookies fall apart when you try to remove them from the sheet, put them back in the oven for another minute or so.
6. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and leave to cool.
7. Enjoy!

I found this amazing recipe from @Ohsheglows. Gooey Pumpkin spice Latte Chocolate pudding sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it! Here is another one, this time it’s one bowl double chocolate chunk cookies. Yum! These #glutenfree cinnamon buns look rather tempting also! Or a lovely #apple #bread with #raisins and #pecans. Yum… sweet potato brownies! Lemony Vanilla cupcakes anyone?

How about a #blackbean #brownie as shared by #veganstella!

Thank you to @Fettlevegan for sharing this gorgeous looking recipe for Deep Dish #apple cinnamon skillet cake. Nom nom nom..I’m a big cinnamon fan.  This #Pecan studded #banana bread also sounds rather special! Or a savoury dish? Spicy red and black pepper cornbread. lovely! Dark #chocolate #rosemary cookies look divine!

This is another lovely suggestion from @VeganStella. #Polenta cake. Yummy!
