Vinegar is the ingredient that has restored my faith in gluten-free vegan baking – take this blueberry upside-down cake, for example.
These gluten-free, vegan, savoury breakfast muffins are the most moist I have ever come across. This is all thanks to almond meal, zucchini, tomatoes and – most importantly – caramelised French shallots.
Changing your diet to be one that is gluten-free, vegan and mostly refined sugar free when you have one helluva sweet tooth is a huge hurdle. I didn’t know what to do with myself for what felt like the longest time (OK, so it probably wasn’t that long).
But one day, I discovered raw desserts and boy, am I glad I did.
Yes, it’s raw as in uncooked, but it is not like the cheesecake you know. This one wasn’t meant to be cooked to begin with. I usually turn up to family gatherings with this bad boy in tow and let me tell you, this gluten-free vegan raw raspberry cheesecake is a crowd pleaser.
