Lemon curd waffles + lemon curd recipe

In a few of my previous posts I’ve put up pictures and recipes that feature lemon curd, like the lemon curd, meringue and raspberry cupcakes featured in my wedding post, but with no recipe for it. Here is that recipe. It is the only recipe for lemon curd you will ever need because itΒ is amazing and once you’ve made it I know you’ll feel the same. The curd is smooth, sweet and deliciously tangy and I love it on just about anything! You can spread it on some soft bread or use it as a topping for cakes and cupcakes or as a filling. The lemon curd recipe makes a fairly big amount but it does store well in the fridge. If you’re worried, just half the recipe. A simple but very yummy way to use the curd is to put it on some waffles. This particular post is a great example on how you can make something so damn good but really easily once you have curd. You don’t need to make the waffles, …

Vegan french toast with whipped coconut cream

I’ve been dabbling a bit in vegan cooking recently, trying new recipes and substitutions for favourites. So far I’ve learned that nuttelex is a godsend and almond milk always goes on sale the day after I buy it. More importantly I’ve learned that making a recipe vegan doesn’t mean you skimp out on taste and in some cases taste better than the original! An excellent example of this is french toast. I personally hate french toast, that was until I made this. I made this for some friends, and I kid you not, one of my friends (not vegan) said it was the best french toast he’s ever eaten. So what makes this recipe so good? Ripe mashed bananas, vanilla, cinnamon and almond milk are the only ingredients and they make the most delicious batter for your bread to soak up. The bananas give great texture and flavour, and the more ripe they are, the sweeter. The real secret here is to sprinkle brown sugar on the bread before you pan fry, that way they …

Breakfast Egg Bites

Sometimes eating breakfast can be such as hassle, especially when you were meant to leave for work 10 minutes ago. No time to sit there eating cerealΒ and watch the clock tick by. Ladies and gentlemen, I have the solution for you. I feel like I’m pitching some miracle tonic here, but seriously, these egg bites are the answer to your breakfast problems. They’re freezable, they’re full of protein, they only need a quick zap in the microwave, you can eat them on the go and last but not least, two of these babies will fill you up until lunch time, no doubt. This recipe uses chicken, tomato, cheese, onion and parsley as the main flavours, but you can change these ingredients to what ever you like! Feeling a bit Greek? Add some red onion, olives and feta cheese. How about some Spanish? Chuck in some chopped chorizo. You gettin’ my drift? Making a batch of these means you have a delicious, filling breakfast no matter how much time you have. Let’s make some! Preheat your …

Banana muffins

If you’ve got a craving for some super fluffy and moist muffins then these are for you! They taste soo good straight out of the oven, especially with my vegan nutella spread on them. These banana muffins are freezer friendly so you can keep them in the there and just take one out the night before for a yummy breakfast on the go. The muffins have a pinch of cinnamon, a splash of vanilla and some ripe bananas.Β You could add some choc chips into the mix or some strawberries if plain banana isn’t your thing. Grease a muffin tray and preheat your oven to 180C/350F. Place the ripe bananas in a mixing bowl. Mash well. I love the smell of ripe bananas! It’s hard not to spoon this on some toast with peanut butter. Add the egg, sugar, butter and vanilla. If your using hot melted butter, mix all the other ingredients and slowly pour the butter in as you mix. This prevents cooked bits of egg. Mix well. Sift in the flour, baking powder, …
