Feeling Autumnal?

 
 
 

The Great British Bake Off....

Vegan Week

Being a dairy free business, this week was preeeetttty easy for me as I’v got a whole load of recipes banked up, that i’ve made and experimented with over the past few years. This is one of the first ever bakes I sold on my stalls when I first started out. Hope you love it as much as me. The perfect autumnal bite.

Pastry Week

Pastry! Ooh I do love pastry. Did anyone else just cook a lump of pastry in the oven (the spare leftover from the pie) in a ball so it was crisp on the outside and soft on the inside and gobble up the whole thing? Also fight over the biggest portion of pastry when the pie was cut? I did!

Spice Week

We all love a bit of spice in our lives. Especially those warm autumnal spices. I’m talking pumpkin spice, gingerbread and of course chai. It’s become a big thing over the past few years, in lattes, bakes, teas and cakes. Try this nut butter version. It’s gorgeous on top of hot steamy porridge bowls, in bakes and spread on top of hot toast/banana bread.

Dessert Week

I do love a good dessert. My favourites have got to be a crumble, as it reminds me of my Grandma and baking with her when I was little or this chocolate date caramel bake that my Mum used to make all the time when I was younger. Best served with ice cream and hot out of the oven.

 

Customers Feedback

I am dairy intolerant which means a lot of the more exciting and special chocolates are no longer an option for me as they often contain milk in some form. That’s why I love Leitchy Creates chocolates, they allow me to experience chocolate as something special and exciting again
— Celine
When I went vegan the only vegan chocolates I knew about were by ‘free from’ brands that I saw in the supermarket, which were mostly full of sugar and lacking in flavour. I first came across Leitchy Creates in summer 2017 and have been buying regularly ever since! They have the look and taste of high quality luxury chocolates, without the sugar crash afterwards. The chocolates are delicious, vegan, allergy friendly, and to top it off they come from an independent business
— Hannah
They don’t taste dairy free like a lot of ‘free from’ chocolates from the shop do. They’re so indulgent and have really interesting complex flavours and they look appealing. You’d never know they were designed for people with intolerances!

Chocolate Themed Recipes...

Chocolate Ganache Tart

Well I do love a rich, indulgent and naughty, smooth and silky chocolate ganache tart with dairy free homemade shortcrust pastry and toasted crunchy flaked almonds. It’s unbelievable. I love to warm mine ever so slightly so it melts, just a tiny bit and then top it with a big lump of vanilla ice cream. Trust me, it’s incredible.

Rocky Road

Thick and crunchy rocky road with chewy dried fruit and crumbly nuts. Whats not to like? Made with my peanut praline bars melted down into a thick chocolate sauce before all the textures are folded through.
