Five Vegan Treats To Bake This Weekend
Whether you’re solo vegan-baking or entertaining little ones, we’ve got some of the finest plant-based recipes to help keep you busy and well-fed this weekend. From vegan tiffin and cinnamon buns to a giant chocolate chip cookie, we’ve got you covered.
Sometimes a weekend baking session is just what’s needed. A few slow hours in the kitchen on a sunny afternoon with the radio on in the background. Then you’ll find yourself with freshly baked produce that’s perfect to snack on with cups of tea.
Planted vegan baking recipes
Here are a few of our favourite recipes that will turn your weekend into something special.
These plant-based cinnamon buns are soft, sweet, gooey and a great recipe to kick off this list of weekend baking ideas. We love to eat ours with a big pot of coffee to hand – we take ours with oat milk.
Disclaimer: there is moderate kneading and proving involved, but trust us, it’s worth every minute.
This sweet, nutty and flakey Bakewell tart is made up of three distinct layers: A crisp shortcrust pastry, sticky raspberry or cherry jam and irresistible frangipane. This tart is a nostalgic family favourite that packs as many memories as it does flavours.
Here’s another great plant-based recipe from Val – this time a rich, fudgy and chocolatey classic. This one’s a bit of a cheat because it actually requires no baking, very minimal work and can be adapted to what you have in the cupboards. Sub out cherries for any other dried fruit and even get creative with your biscuit choice too.
Yes, you heard that right. Here’s a recipe for the biggest and chewiest cookie you’ll ever need. It’s soft, crisp and designed to be eaten straight out of the tin with plenty of vegan ice cream in front of your favourite movie.
This list wouldn’t be complete without Val’s hit vegan brownie cookies recipe. They’re fudgy just like your favourite brownie, as well as crisp and chewy like all great cookies should be. Name a more iconic duo – we dare you.
All that’s left to do is narrow this list down to the vegan recipe you’d like to make first!
