My friend's having a party tommorrow and I stupidly said I'd bring something sweet for the (many) vegans attending.

I don't want something like fruit salad as I know she always makes loads.

I want some kind of little individual tarts or cakes or muffins.

I like baking but every recipie I find online has something weird in it like agave nectar, cow breath...or chicken's hopes and dreams....what can I make with easy to find stuff?

PAstry made with veg fat, jam, then a hefty mix of coconut for the top

I have made a vegan key lime pie before which was easy and tasty. Can't find the exact recipe but there are lots online if you google it.

This is my go to recipe. I also use it to make brownies by adding nuts, cherries and dark chocolate chips. Really easy and tastes amazing.

Vegan meringues. Dead easy and impressive looking.

Stick them on top a vegan cake. The minimalist baker has some nice ones

lemon curd pie? Very easy to make (just make pastry or use jusroll and make some lemon curd to pour in the middle). Tons of cake, biscuit and cookie recipes online. The Vegan Society has lots of recipes.

200g (7 oz) plain flour
200g (7 oz) caster sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
250ml (8 fl oz) water

Put dry ingredients in a bowl, add wet and mix. Makes awesome cakes everytime. Use dark chcoclate and red berries as a topping or vegan butter icing.

This is lovely and you could put in shot glasses for individual portions.

This is absolutely outstanding! Nondifficult ingredients (buy soy spread and very strong dark choc e.g. 90% but check its vegan on the label in Norma supermarket) and it's very easy to make. It tastes amazing and you would never know it's vegan! We regularly make it for non vegans as well as vegans and everyone loves it

Cocoa powder
Maple syrup

Mix in a blender, adding whatever quantities taste good. Dollop into ramekins and refrigerate. Garnish with raspberries and mint leaves, or whatever takes your fancy.

Mmmmmm. Creamy, chocolatey yumminess in 2 mins grin

Street Vegan (American vegan food van) has an amazing chocolate ganache tart that is v.easy. Otherwise Divine Vegan has a great (simple!) sponge recipe to accessorise with faux buttercream and jam.

You can sub in maple syrup for agave nectar/brown rice syrup etc, in my experience. And if it says evaporated cane juice, it means sugar. These wanky vegans eh grin I also sub in normal plain flour for most applications that call for ground up rare cactus marrow or some such!

Agave syrup is available at most supermarkets.

Here is the sponge recipe:

Stop looking for vegan recipes. There are loads of regular desserts that are, or can be, vegan. Ignore anything with eggs or milk (unless it's just a glaze, in which case user oil or don't bother with glaze).Anything that requires butter / marg, just use vegetable marg but do check it is vegan as some vegetable marg has small amounts of milk fat in. Some ideas...pastries, pies, crumbles, shortbreads...

LaContessaDiPlump Thu 16-Mar-17 08:12:37

Oh and THIS. This is a beautiful thing!

LaContessaDiPlump Thu 16-Mar-17 08:14:42

Sorry, multiple posts blush

Sainsburys own brand dark choc chips are vegan, so you could make the Divine Vegan recipe as cupcakes and drop choc chips in before baking. I did this yesterday and it was very easy!

I did lemon drizzle cupcakes at the weekend using the 'wacky cake' method that Supermanstolemypants has in their choc cake recipe and they were amazing. Mine were also gluten free and were much complimented

Jack Monroe's vegan banana bread (or muffins if you like) is really lovely - very light which you don't usually have spect from a banana bread:
