There’s something so comforting about a steaming bowl of porridge, and that’s just how I started my day. Made with oat milk, cinnamon and maple syrup and topped with sunflower and pumpkin seeds. I always find porridge is really filling so I skipped lunch and made a smoothie with five strawberries, one banana and the juice of one orange late afternoon.
There’s something relaxing about zesting lemons, and combined with a Sunday sugar craving, vegan lemon cupcakes were a must. I used vegetable oil instead of butter but I’m not very happy with how they turned out: a little flat and oily, but taste-wise, delicious. Do you have any recommendations for vegan baking? I added fresh thyme and lemon juice to icing sugar to give oomph to the cupcakes. Served with a pot of green tea and yes, they’re almost finished!
How did you spend your weekend?
