A delightfully decadent vegan cake
V // Vegan // DF
Okay, so I have been on a bit of a baking holiday for a little while now. I have been working on a new side to my photography with another of my passions which is horses. Equine photography is always something I wanted to try since becoming a photographer and I decided to take a little time to give it a go. Please do check out my website Through A Looking Glass here.
To kick off my first recipe back, I wanted to do a delicious, rich and decadent chocolate cake… but this one has a little twist. It’s totally vegan and it uses avocado, so you could argue its actually pretty healthy!
We all know breakfast is the bomb, but this one literally is the bomb!

Now i’m usually more of a ‘drop scones, not bombs’ girl (blog to follow) however on occasion sometimes as in this case it really is the bomb!
This dish was inspired by a bacon wrapped number I had seen on YouTube by a West Hollywood Eatery called Estrella. You can watch the video here. I made it for my husbands birthday breakfast and he loved it. I having recently given up most meats I wanted a vegetarian alternative that still packed that ‘what’s inside here?’ excitement and obviously was a delight to eat.
I’d like to introduce you to the Breakfast Bomb. Here were removing the bacon and replacing it with a lovely soft tortilla wrap and an addition of sautéed spinach. To finish the dish the little bombs sits on a pepper ring filled with guacamole and a final flourish of garlic aioli. I’m really pleased with how this turned out. I hope you love it too!
Parmesan Breadcrumbed Avocado Chips
This recipe merges the boundaries of naughty and nice. Avocado is great for you, chips taste amazing… put those things together… avocado chips! Hell yes!!! This could easily be made vegan by omitting the egg, cheese and using a plant based mayonnaise. A totally delicious treat, but much better for you then popping down the chippy tonight.
You’ll definitely avocaDO with this delicious dish!
Avocado is just the best fruit! Not only are they full of health benefits and totally great for you. They also go with pretty much anything at anytime.
A quick snack when just seasoned and eaten as they are, or made into glorious guacamole, perfect for dipping, or even as a base for a vegan, raw chocolate cheesecake…. see told you they go with everything.
My personal favourite is smashed or sliced onto toast, seasoned and topped with a perfectly poached egg, simply divine.
