A new Vegan Baking Guide explains how to create a range of tasty vegan bakes, from light, airy sponges, to traditional puddings and eggless meringue. Packed full of delicious recipes, the guide is aimed at care caterers, but is a valuable resource for anyone cooking for vegans.

Amanda Woodvine, chief executive of charity Vegetarian for Life, which has published the Vegan Baking guide says:

“Just because someone chooses to be vegan doesn’t mean that they should miss out on their favourite sweet treats. Enjoyment of food is such an important aspect of life and if someone is living in a care home, food can become even more significant. The smells and tastes of baking can evoke fond memories. If someone is struggling to eat and losing weight, providing a tempting slice of their favourite cake and a cuppa can be an easy, enjoyable way for them to get those much-needed extra calories.”

Vegan baking is enjoying a wave of popularity. In 2019, a number of ready-made vegan cakes launched in supermarkets – and many catering suppliers are now increasing their vegan ranges too. With the number of vegans on the rise – almost trebling in UK care homes, according to VfL’s recent survey – the demand for satisfying vegan desserts is increasing too.

VfL is a registered charity that supports older vegetarians and vegans and those who cater for them. VfL also offers one-day vegan baking courses for professional caterers. These will give catering teams the tools for success to use tried-and-tested egg and dairy replacements to create a variety of delicious desserts.

The Vegan Baking guide can be downloaded free of charge from the Vegetarian for Life website where details of the vegan baking courses can also be found, or order a physical copy for just £2 plus P&P.

We'll be publishing one recipe a day throughout National Vegetarian Week, so keep an eye out!
