Vegan suggestions for vegan coffee time Plss.

I had a vegetarian friend that became recently vegan. I used to offer some cake with coffee when visiting for a girls catch up, now it seems that she doesn't have cake anymore (because of the eggs). I have checked Sainsbury's but I am a bit lost regarding what is available. I would really appreciate your suggestions on your best favourite vegan cakes, biscuits, cookies muffins (whatever) I could serve with coffee ( or tea) that I could find available at Sainsbury's, lidl, aldi (and the like, without the need of popping into an "specialised" health shop). Thanks in advance.

Depending on what you have in your cupboards, and how much you like cooking, you could make a cake?
Take a look at the Ms.Cupcake recipes online for the basic formula. (And if you don't have cider vinegar, lemon juice will work)

I make what I think must be vegan muffins for DD because she is allergic to egg and dairy. They come out ok. You use oil, baking powder and vinegar instead of milk and eggs.

I know you're after shop bought recommendations really so I'd suggest the 'free from' M&S chocolate brownies which tend to be nice and don't have milk or eggs.

Morrison's doughnuts are usually vegan (double check the ingredients though because occasionally they aren't depending on which store I've been in).

Easy options include Oreos and Hobnobs, both accidentally vegan.

The Ms cupcake basic cupcake recipe is really good. I've made them for work and had very positive feedback, even from people who were very unsure about trying vegan cake.

These are really nice. I use maraschino cherries instead of glace.

Morrisons do some jam tarts that are vegan, they're in the free from section as they're gluten free too.

sequins, I never tell anyone that they're vegan when I offer them to non-vegans. Nobody has noticed anything obviously different.

I'm currently dairy free due to my daughter's allergy. I eat bourbons and hobnobs. Betty Crocker does a wide range of dairy free cakes and you can add fizzy drinks in place of eggs and oil: m.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/easy-cake-recipe-use-soda-be-bubbly_n_5717767

I alsi live off dark chocolate as many brands are vegan.

All major supermarkets have a free from section with a range of cakes and biscuits - most are focussed on the wheat/gluten free market but many are also vegan so check the labels
Oreos are vegan too

Thank you so much for so many helpful suggestions. Yes, I was coming with the idea of getting something store bought, sometimes I can't find the time for so much cooking (and I am useless at cooking bakery tbh), but now I am soo spoilt for choice that although I will end up buying some of the suggestions I will end up trying to cook others (the 2 ingredients cake Shock or the Ms cupcake ). Lots of brilliant ideas now Smile

You can make it nut and soya free Grin It's a quite flexible recipe! INeedNew Here you go-

Ingredients: 150g. oat flour
150g spelt flour (or any type you like)
150g. carrots (chopped, steamed, left till dry then mashed) They're not necessary but make it nicely moist)
75.g molasses
75g honey
75.g olive oil or whatever oil\marg. you like
275ml. plant milk,
2tsp bicarb
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground ginger and or cinnamon
2 tabsp. linseeds and 2 tabsp. water (egg replacer) soaked and then whipped. till frothy

Method; use one large heavy saucepan on very low heat, slowly melt the honey/molasses, oil, ginger add the milk mix carefully, with the mashed carrots, (you could add some ginger pieces if you like) and allow to cool. Add the egg replacer mix properly, then sieve in all the dry ingredients mix till it's a "dropping consistency".

Bake at 170C degrees in a tart tin with an oiled base liner just above the centre of the oven for over 35 mins. Check it's just dry in the centre and coming away from the edges. Let it cool in the tin.

Bourbons usually are just check if there’s milk (it would be in bold). There’s a shortbread brand called Duncan’s of deeside (purple packet). Party rings are but might not be the style you’re going for Grin. Mr Kipling treacle tart is as are some apple and black currant tarts. Hope you enjoy/ enjoyed the tea!
