Double Chocolate Banana Cake {vegan, GF}

I decided to wing it with this one. After all, making cakes week in and week out gives one a fair idea of how to do it right… right?! Based loosely on my own adaptation of Tracy Benjamin’s Hippy Banana Bread, and loosely on my own ideas of how to make a vegan chocolate cake,…

Lemon Curd Frozen Yoghurt {vegan, GF}

Who knew there were so many ways to enjoy lemon curd? Aside from the obvious – slathering it on toast… or eating it by the spoonful… there was that Lemon Lamington Layer Cake, and now this – Lemon Curd Frozen Yoghurt. I have yet another recipe up my sleeve, but will leave that until winter…

Lemon Lamington Layer Cake {vegan, GF}

This all came about because I was trying to think of desserts that would be suitable for my father-in-law’s birthday party. His birthday is the same date as a rather controversial public holiday. Traditionally, if one is meeting with friends and family for a meal on January 26th, you would serve lamingtons or pavlova for…

Bittersweet Jaffa Almond Cake {vegan, GF}

This is my magical unicorn cake, my pie-in-the-sky, my nemesis; the cake that was destined never to work. I lost count how many iterations were tried, tested and failed… how many tins of beans were used in the quest for a vegan chocolate almond torte. And yet here we are, with the recipe for a…

Ah, New Year’s Eve! A time to reflect on the year just gone, and make goals and resolutions for the year to come. A time to clean up your diet and replace sweets with salad… maybe?! Maybe for someone else, that is! I’m not a great one for resolutions. I recognise the value of making…

Hello friends! Yes, it’s been a while between posts. That’s life, I guess, but it’s definitely life when every spare moment is spent preparing to launch a new business – brainstorming a name, starting up a new Facebook page, setting up a shop on the newly named Sweet Tucker blog, etc. a new business required…

Chocolate Fudge Dip vegan

5-Ingredient Chocolate Fudge Dip {vegan}

“Being on holidays from work is fun, isn’t it, Mummy?” said my 4-year old to me the other day. “Work?” said I. “Do you mean preschool?” “Yep.” said he. It had dawned on him that being home meant that he could ‘play all day with mummy’. Not having preschool three days a week meant we could spend…

Lemon & Poppy Seed Almond Cakes {vegan, gf}

How are your gardening skills? I tend to have a black thumb, but I do like a bit of pruning, so when a friend asked me to help prune her very tall, very laden lemon tree I jumped at the chance. I took over our pruning saw, got out the ladder and proceeded to do…

Flourless Peanut Butter Choc Chip Skillet Cookie {vegan, gf}

Flourless Peanut Butter Choc Chip Skillet Cookie {vegan, gf}

We go through a heap of peanut butter in this house! So much. And only two of us eat peanut butter. It’s really about time I started buying it in bulk. Even more so now that we have this skillet cookie on rotation! I had been dreaming of making a skillet cookie for the longest…
