5 Bakes To Try Next Bank Holiday Weekend
A long weekend means more time to make some of your favourite treats. So, whether your go-to is a chocolatey delight or you prefer something fresh and zesty, here’s some inspo to make your bank holiday sweet.
This decadent pie is the perfect treat for this long weekend — especially for any children who you may have in tow. It’s no-bake, which is ideal when rustling something up with little ones about and is a great activity to keep everyone busy. Hack away at your bag of Oreos for the crust, whip away at the filling and get your artist hat on with the decorations.
For a pie that is maybe a little more grown-up (though just as delicious), try your hand at this zesty, sweet meringue pie. Serve this to people (it serves 8-10!) and they’ll question whether it truly is vegan; it’s sweet, sour, buttery and smells heavenly, just like the original, and isn’t anywhere as difficult to make as it looks.
If you’re like us, you’re always in the mood for soft, gooey cookies. These don’t disappoint, and they’re too good to be reserved just for St Patrick’s day. The Guinness deepens the chocolate flavour and makes every bite fudgy, moist and completely decadent. Whether you’re a beer fan or not, these are certain to still hit the spot.
The first peek of sunshine means a batch of fresh scones. We don’t make the rules. These are buttery, soft and flaky, and requires little effort for a very big, very satisfying reward. Top with your jam of choice and our easy and thick clotted cream for a true classic.
Carrot cake is always a crowd-pleaser, and this vegan version is spiced, fragrant and the perfect amount of sweetness. For cake lovers, this number is the only way you could make your long weekend even sweeter (especially when very, very generously topped with vegan cream cheese frosting).
