This traditional British pudding is delicious, comforting and warming on a cold winter’s day. There’s no need to use vegan butter on the bread, as the vanilla–marmalade custard absorbs and moistens it beautifully.
Since reaching the semi-finals of the 2017 The Great British Bake-Off, Stacey Hart has moved away from the icing coated cakes she was famed for and now creates healthier, but still just as delicious, bakes. Here she shares a quick and easy low sugar vegan bake, packed full of winter flavours.
It seems you can’t go to a Christmas party without a chocolate log appearing at some stage, but I always find them a bit heavy at the end of a big meal, so I’ve created this lighter lower sugar version.
There’s always a tin of shortbread kicking around at Christmas, but it’s such an easy biscuit to make and super simple to reduce the sugar in that there’s no reason to buy the sugar laden variety when this recipe is so tasty.
Whether it’s gingerbread men or German Lebkuchen, ginger is an essential flavour of Christmas. These simple Ginger Slices are virtually sugar free and are deliciously soft and gooey. Pop them in a tin and give them as a thoughtful homemade gift…or keep them all to yourself!
There was a spell in most people’s teens where we all ate far more Pop Tarts than we should have done. Now a little older and wiser I’ve realised that they’re not the healthiest snacks going, so I wanted to re-create something that gave the same taste satisfaction, but without all the sugar.
There’s nothing more traditional than a Christmas Cake, but a rich fruit cake is not everyone’s cup of tea and they are jammed full of sugars. Instead I’ve created a festive flavoured alternative, which can replace your traditional bake or simply be a nice addition on Boxing Day.
