My Goals for 2019

My Goals for 2019

At the start of every new year I try to make some new years resolutions. In the past I have made many and predictably, I have failed to make a lot of them come true or last long if at all. Nowadays, I prefer to call them goals as this sounds more achievable to me somehow, I think the whole new year new me attitude is more positive and more relatable to me personally, than using the term ‘resolutions’.

Heanton Court Inn – A review

As much as I enjoy cooking and baking for my family, it is always nice when I do not have to and to have someone else prepare a meal for me instead.

Nearly Vegan Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Bundt Cake

Nearly Vegan Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Bundt Cake

This decadent Nearly Vegan Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Overload Bundt Cake is a Reese’s peanut butter chocolate fan’s perfect cake! 

I call this cake Vegan because the sponge and frosting are egg and dairy free. However, Reese’s peanut butter chocolates, together with the milk and white chocolate drizzle toppings, are of course not vegan. Therefore if you wanted to make this cake completely vegan then you would need to find an alternative topping.  Nonetheless this delicious Nearly Vegan Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Bundt Cake was good enough for the person I baked it for.
