Lemon and Olive Oil Cupcakes

So here is just a little vegan cupcake recipe for Mothers Day. These were some cupcakes I made for a baby shower last week and everyone,whether omni or vegan, loved them! The olive oil content of these cake keeps them from getting dry and the cake part is not too sweet, so is balanced nicely by the sweetness of the frosting. They are also again pretty straight forward to prepare… another case of simply mixing the wet and dry ingredients together. Try to get hold of cold pressed olive and avoid using ‘pure’ olive oil or olive oil blends… in fact sometimes the cold pressed, though much better quality, is cheaper at the supermarket. I know this was the case at Tesco. Have a scout around and see what is available to you locally. Have a lovely Mothers Day everyone!

Rosewater Cupcakes and Vegan Weddings

I am ashamed to say its been over 6 months since my last recipe post, which really is pretty bad. Over winter I found it really hard to find inspiration. Our house was like a building site, literally. We had no floor for the first few weeks, we had plaster crumbling off walls and a ton of wallpaper to strip. We are finally at a stage of having a more welcoming home… at least parts of it anyway, (still waiting on buying carpets, buying a bed etc.) Though I will never forget those few weeks when all we had was a camping stove to cook all our food on! Now summer is nearly here, the house is warm, the kitchen (almost) stocked its definitely time to start writing and cooking awesome foods again. I have been busy the last few weeks catering a few weddings which has been amazing. The wedding season is here and with over 1% of the population of UK now vegan its now more than ever important to cater for vegans at big …

Matcha Green Tea Cupcakes

Matcha Green Tea has a bunch of awesome health benefits. It has antioxidant qualities, can help with detox, boost concentration and give you a natural energy boost without the usual side effects like hypertension and nervousness of other stimulants. I also really just like the flavour! I have wanted to post a cupcake recipe for ages now, but could never decide what flavour to go for…. so I figured why not Matcha flavoured! Where the ship is now I can’t get hold of any natural sweeteners or unprocessed sugars, hense why this recipe just calls for straight forward regular crappy sugar alongside something awesome like Matcha Green Tea powder. So if you make these at home feel free to swap that out for a more unprocessed sweetener. I will definitely be trying so when I head back home.   Green Tea Cupcakes   1 1/2 cups plain flour 2 Tbsp corn starch 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 2/3 cup sugar 2 tsp matcha green tea powder 1 cup soya …
