Baby Strawberry Scones {vegan, gf}

There are two types of mother according to talk-back radio, or so my husband tells me. There are those whose children are all grown up, who long to spend quality time with their offspring again, or re-live cherished memories of days long gone. Then there are those still in the early throes of parenthood, where…

Cruelty-free Marshmallow (Wagon Wheel) Slice {gf}

It’s taken me a while to get my head to agree to doing this. Several months of being inspired by the Aquafaba (Vegan Meringue – Hits and Misses) group – a positive, encouraging band of vegan bakers who try, try and try again to experiment with creating not just meringues, but all sorts of vegan products using…

Vegan chocolate cupcakes with maple buttercream icing {gf}

Vegan Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I was a teenager when I first tasted and fell in love with zucchini muffins. Muffins were not a big thing in Australia when I was a child, so it was only when I was older, and attending an international school with a largely American cohort, that I was introduced to my first muffin crush!…

Fruit and yoghurt slice {with gluten-free and dairy-free options}

Okay, we’re going super-healthy this time, and it’s ugly but oh, so good! It’s a slice that could be co-opted as breakfast food, or packed into the lunchbox as a healthy snack. Rules surrounding what one can consume at school are getting so rigid these days, but never fear! This baby is nut-free. It is…
