Our Favourite Vegan Easter Bakes
The one-stop shop for vegan easter bakes — from traditional delights to decadent treats that you just have to make over the bank holiday. Fill your kitchen with sweet smells of cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate this Easter with these spiced and tasty treats.
Hot cross buns
Hot cross buns are a traditional bake many look forward too all year — and these vegan buns are worth the wait. They’re fluffy, sweet, and super soft — and this recipe makes 12, meaning there’s no reason why you can’t have one at breakfast, lunch and dinner! It’s bread-ish and it is brushed with orange marmalade, so in our books it is versatile to eat in the AM or PM.

Easter biscuits are another traditional route many would gladly take — and these melt-in-the-mouth goodies from Jo’s Kitchen Larder are perfect for making with children too. These gently spice biscuits can also be made in under 25 minutes, leaving plenty of time to rest and eat all the treats Easter has to offer.
Vegan carrot cake
This perfectly spiced carrot is the ideal bake for the Easter bank holiday weekend. Spiced and sweet, this cake is always a crowd pleaser — and just because it’s vegan doesn’t mean we don’t load it up with a very, very generous helping of cream cheese frosting. Enjoy a slice after your easter egg hunt or afternoon stroll and it’ll taste that much sweeter.
Vegan sticky buns
These buns are exactly what they say on the tin — sticky — but also sweet, gooey, fluffy and pure unadulterated bready goodness. Though not explicitly a traditional Easter bake, a dash of cinnamon for a gentle spice and a dash of pecans make this a bake that somehow works for all and every occasion — and we’re definitely going to make this a thing every Easter.

Simnel cake is a traditional Easter bake since the Medieval period, and in the 17th Century servant girls would bake it for their mothers when going home for Mothering Sunday. This vegan version from Domestic Gothess is just as tasty as the original, and a perfect bake for fruitcake lovers.
