One of my Christmas presents this year was a little Chocolate & Cranberry Christmas Cake from Spoilt for Choice. They’re a South Auckland based bakery specialising in allergen-free baked goodies. Though they don’t use the v-word at all on their packaging or website, most of their products just happen to be dairy-free, egg-free and suitable for vegans. They’re also gluten and wheat free. Their website has information about other products, stockists and mailorder options.
Even tastier is this Cathedral Cake, which my mum made for me. It’s so called because it’s mostly a matrix of dried fruit and nuts, and when you saw off thin slices, it looks like stained glass windows. There was an egg in the original recipe, but she used egg substitute instead.
I am a lucky vegan.
