Old Fashioned English Bread Pudding (Dairy Free / Egg Free / Vegan)

Today I’m delighted to be sharing the recipe for one of my favourite childhood treats – Old Fashioned English Bread Pudding. Its name certainly doesn’t do it justice though, as it tastes nothing like bread nor would I describe it as a pudding! Instead, it is more like a sweet, dense fruit cake. It is delicious served with a hot cuppa, and also makes a fantastic energy-boosting snack to stash in your backpacks for hikes and bike rides. I think this year, all of us have been spending a lot more time outdoors and we definitely need some tasty snacks to keep us fuelled and put a spring in our step. This bread pudding definitely fits that bill!

Pecan Topped Banana Bread (Dairy-free, Egg-free, Vegan)

I originally posted our Pecan Topped Banana Bread on the blog way back in 2015 and, to this day, it remains our family’s favourite banana bread recipe! It has a beautiful soft texture (definitely more cake-like than bread!) and cinnamon-spiced flavour. I especially love the pecan topping which adds a tasty crunch to every mouthful.

Vegan French Toast with Strawberries and Cream

Today’s recipe is for a deliciously decadent French Toast that’s just perfect for serving as a weekend breakfast or brunch. It’s really easy to make and the batter uses just a handful of ingredients. The real challenge at the moment is getting hold of a loaf of bread! (who would have thought eh?) But if you’re able to seek it out, I would highly recommend using sourdough as it takes this toast to the next level! ✨

Sunny Sri Lankan Curry (Vegan)

Today I’m sharing the recipe for a delicious plant-based curry that is filled with sunshine colour. The stars of this dish are butternut squash and red pepper, which are roasted in warming spices to bring a richness and depth of flavour. The sauce is coconut based, adding the touch of sweetness and creaminess that we associate with Sri Lankan curries. I’ve kept the recipe mild enough to suit all family members, but feel free to crank up the heat by adding some fresh chilli.
