Recipe Recommendation: July

These are the recipes that I’ve tried from other bloggers/websites that I haven’t altered that we’ve really enjoyed for the month of July. It’s nice to recommend others plus it’s also encouraging to know the recipe didn’t just work for the person posting it but for others too (I’ve tried so many recipes that just simply haven’t worked).

For our wedding anniversary we decided to have a picnic with the kids rather than go out for a fancy meal as i have to be super strict with no dairy and soy while breastfeeding Ava. Rather than a cake, i decided i wanted trifle so of course you cannot use the traditional jam roll that you buy from the supermarket if you cannot have dairy or soy! I made this cake for the trifle and while the recipe for the trifle as a whole needs tweaking, this cake was DELICIOUS!!! I even made it again as cupcakes and it turned out fantastically! Don’t mind my attempts at piping icing though 😉

Vegan Blueberry Muffins (Wheat)

All of our hens went into molt at the same time and stopped laying for over a month so we had no eggs for quite awhile. I wanted to still keep baking so researched different egg replacement methods. Obviously flax and chia are a popular alternative at the moment however i find that they yield quite a dense crumb, which is fine in heavier baked goods however i wanted light and fluffy, white flour blueberry muffins. Vinegar is in fact a substitute for eggs and this recipe is a testament to how well it works. Delicious! Kel preferred when i used a rye/barley mix instead of white flour (see below) however i prefer the white flour ones 😉
