Nutty Sultana Banana Bread (GF, Vegan)

Cor, I absolutely love banana bread. It’s so hearty and indulgent, and incredibly easy to make. This is not my only banana loaf recipe on the site (see my spelt banana bread made in sunny St. Lucia for an alternative), but it’s a very different variety in terms of ingredients and flavour. This version is hearty,…

Raw Raspberry Ripple Cheesecake

As a child, a little pot of raspberry ripple ice cream after dinner was such a treat. The inspiration for this dessert, which we indulged in over the Christmas period, stemmed from that fond memory.

Vegan Chocolate Nut Butter Glory

The main element of this raw dessert is a chocolate mousse that literally takes 2 minutes to make and tastes amazing. It’s so dangerous that once I’d created it for the first time last Monday, I then ended up making it every night for the rest of the week…oops! I’ve adapted a Hemsley and Hemsley…
