I’ve been to loads of these and they are all great. I don’t even have a record player, nor a turntable, even. Records is not the reason I go. For me the Moseley Record Fair is all about the Cafe. The lovely dinner ladies produce fantastic cakes, many of which are vegan. These go great with tea.
Here’s an easy recipe from the fab Trishul Smith on her blog!

So here’s my first attempt at a Ms Cupcake recipe, which happens to be the Blueberry Lemon loaf cake rather than a cupcake! That might be cheating but I skimmed through the Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town cookbook, picked out a few appealing recipes that I kinda had ingredients for and got stuck in.

Lots of commercially available bread is vegan friendly but if you want to avoid wheat and yeast your options are drastically reduced.
However, the beeb comes up trumps with an easily adaptable Irish Soda bread recipe, which, I adapted! The only ingredients that really needs adapting are the flours and the buttermilk. Continue reading
I was sent a copy of Ms Cupcake – The naughtiest vegan cakes in town! to review on the blog! I’m not a huge cake eater and certainly not a cupcake fan, although I did have one at Veged Out just before Christmas last year. But as there were promises of easy recipes, no bake recipes and decadent cupcakes, all vegan and with the bonus of gluten-free versions, I was in!
Who is Ms Cupcake?

Ms Cupcake has been on the telly too! I don’t watch Britain’s Best Bakery but she’s been on it as well as Women’s Hour on Radio Four, while she has won the Rising Star prize in the Baking Industry awards. All good recommendations, I suppose. Continue reading
