Thought this would be nice and we can maybe share recipes?
Made these cakes for the children today using marshmallow frosting (aquafaba).

(And any kitty/doggie pics too if you have any - fluffies and cake are my favourite things)

LordProfFekkoThePenguinPhD Sat 29-Jun-19 10:48:20

Can we have recipes please?

WatchingTheWheels85 Sat 29-Jun-19 10:45:36

Is it the buttercream using veg suet? It's basically your usual buttercream recipe but with equal amount of veg suet. I also add vanilla and use soya cream instead of milk smile

Oh wow! That butter cream looks great, what 's the recipe please?

Blondie I've made using left over white easter eggs

Some cupcakes I made yesterday for my daughter and her friend. Rainbow sponge with buttercream. If you use a small amount of vegetable suet in the buttercream it holds and sets amazing plus it halves the sweetness.

@WatchingtheWheels85 AMAZING! I bet your daughter was delighted! Happy birthday mini wheels!

@IveGotAlpen do you have a recipe for the cashew cream? I like the sound of that!

WatchingTheWheels85 Fri 07-Jun-19 19:07:13

It's my daughter 9th birthday today, this is the cake I made

My first time making cashew cream for my pizza! It was SO good ! Like how I remember having ricotta on a pizza !!! I never realised how easy it was either !

I also put a bit of Morrison's own vegan cheese on, tomato base, vbites ham, pepper, mushrooms, onion and sweet corn. With some paprika , mixed herbs and ground pepper.

This was my cheat meal for the week !

Sweetcorn fritters (I added cheese and nutritional yeast and mixed with soya cream). We add nutritional yeast to everything the children have and their b12 levels and iron are very high.

That was supposed to say 2 cups of vital wheat gluten. I buy in bulk from amazon.

@WatchingTheWheels85 also going to try your Seitan recipe 😋 thanks for posting.

WatchingTheWheels85 Thu 30-May-19 14:35:03

I have sweetcorn ready to make fritters today @IveGotAlpen!
Thank you @aliensprig I just wing my seitan to be honest. I base it around 2 cups of seitan whatever herbs that are suited to the style (I actually chucked in some gravy granules to give a meaty taste). Then in a jug I mix the wet stock with a 1/4 cup of oil, dash of soy sauce etc. Mix it all then wrap tightly and chill for at least an hour. Then I boil it in stock for 2mins. Again let it chill for at least an hour then slice and fry. You can also pull it apart to make chunks. For chicken style I add lemon juice, black pepper, onion powder and thyme.

@WatchingTheWheels85 your photos are amazing - wish I lived in your household haha! Just wondered how you make your seitan steak - we've tried it before and it was just too bready sad any tips for making seitan much appreciated!! DH and I are also vegan for the animals smile

IveGotAlpen Wed 29-May-19 11:30:41

Doesn't look very appetising but I made my 19 month old some vegan snacks ! I am also going to make him some lentil nuggets and some pizza swirls for the week.

Sweet corn fritters and banana and apple porridge bars smile

Not looking too appetizing but will add a photo once cooked. Made some steak style seitan for tea tonight.

@PurpleDaisies it's roughly this recipe but instead of cauliflower I mash a large jacket potatoe with a dash of vegan cream. I also add 50g vegan butter and about 30g of cheese. I brush the top also with the 'buttermilk'and sprinkle sunflower seeds.

WatchingTheWheels85 Sun 26-May-19 15:51:59

Fried donuts which are a huge hit with the kids. Have never made them before I'm pretty impressed with myself

PurpleDaisies Sat 25-May-19 11:04:44

Can I have the cheese and potato scone recipe please? They look amazing!

WatchingTheWheels85 Sat 25-May-19 11:01:47
