It’s Easter at the end of the week, so we have a chocolate fudge cake recipe for you to make and share if you’re having a friends/family chocolate filled weekend.  The recipe is from Cookie & Biscuit, amazing baker of vegan treats.

Ingredients
220g white spelt flour
80g cacao powder
1tsp bi carb
1tsp baking powder
1tsp salt
240g coconut palm sugar
400ml non dairy milk
2tsp apple cider or white vinegar
2tsp vanilla extract
125ml melted coconut oil

 Frosting
200g vegan butter
200g icing sugar
80g cacao powder
1tsp vanilla extract

 Preheat oven to 165c, and prep 2 baking round 8inch baking pans.

Sift the flour then mix in all of the dry ingredients, making sure they are well combined.

mix together all of the wet ingredients,  apart from the coconut oil and add to the dry ingredients.  Mix together then add the coconut oil.  Make sure not to over mix.  Pour mixture into your two cake tins and bake for 20-25minutes.

Whilst the cake is in the oven, make your frosting and set aside or put it in the fridge until needed.  Once your cakes are baked and completely cool, sandwich the two together with some of the icing then cover the cake with the rest.

I added a couple of mini eggs to the top for decoration (optional).

Share and enjoy! x

** You can sub granulated sugar for coconut palm sugar, but I have not tried
it so I can not guarantee the results

Recipe Week – Cookie & Biscuit

Posted on by

Lots of people detox in January, make fresh starts, resolutions, or aim to shape up.  With all these good intentions that are hard to keep up when it’s cold, dark and sometimes hard to get motivated and inspired, I’m posting some recipes from lovely ladies, whose food is wholesome and always looks delicious.  It’s always good to have some new recipes that have been tried and tested, a bonus if kids love them too.

First up, with have a recipe from the clever lady behind Cookie and Biscuit Danae.  She was saving this recipe for her cookbook, but has kindly shared it ♡ Thank you lovely!

Nutty Nutty Goji Bars
raw, vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free

50g raw brazil nuts
70g raw pecans
30g raw sunflower seeds
150g medjool dates (room temperature)
1tsp vanilla extract
1.5 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
60 ml of melted coconut oil (50g solid)
100g jumbo oats
30g goji berries (or can sub dried cranberries)
2 teaspoons of chia seed

nutty goji bars close up

Pulse nuts 2-3 times in food processor, but not too much or it will turn to nut butter!
Add the dates, vanilla, maple syrup and coconut oil, mix until all ingredients are incorporated and a soft “dough” forms.  Remove blade and dump mixture into a bowl.  Stir in oats, chia & goji berries.

Press the mixture into a parchment lined 8x8inch square pan, or roll into small balls. Place in fridge for about 2-3 hours, then slice and enjoy!
you can also freeze them, toss in them in a pack lunch and they will defrost by lunch time!
