There seems to be a raft of new vegan desserts hitting the supermarket! We have given them a test drive and here’s our thoughts on them before you spend your hard earned. Nothing worse than being disappointed by cake!
Just Love Food Company @Asda £7
The first supermarket chain to team up with a company and offer a Free From Celebration Cake. We haven’t tried it yet but will report back as soon as we do!
No Moo Chocolate Pudding £2 for 2
Available from the 8th April in stores across the country, Iceland’s new No Moo Chocolate Pudding is touted as being a vegan fondant. Unfortunately our oven seemed to dry out the oozy centre, although it was still moist and rich. Great to see a dessert without coconut! Read a review on our sister blog here.
Wicked Kitchen Charred Pineapple Dream Cake, £4.00
Made with coconut, my nemesis. Surprisingly, the pineapple balances that ‘Bounty’ taste and makes the dessert more palatable. Very summery in flavour.
Wicked Kitchen Red Velvet Brownie, £4.50
Served warm this is a decent brownie. The raspberry ganache is quite tart which cuts through the richness of the cake.
Gu Fabulously Free From
Available exclusively in Asda are also GU Fabulously Free From Cheesecakes. Priced at £2 we have reviewed them on our sister blog Vegan Womble. You can read more here.
Vegan Chocolate Caramel Pots
The salted caramel is decadent and almost compensates for the coconutty chocolate of the mousse.
Asda Extra Special Chocolate Torte
The nut base of this torte is a great balance against the dark chocolate of the torte topping. Very rich, even for someone with a sweet tooth like mine!
Asda Free From Cupcakes
Chocolate cupcakes topped with a mini gelatine-free marshmallow. The cake is a little dry and the frosting ratio is a bit off, but hats off for getting a cupcake that’s suitable for vegans on the shelves.
UK big four retailer Morrisons has extended its vegan range, including the launch of the new V Taste brand.
Vegan Red Velvet Cupcakes and Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes
Both sold in a pack of 2, they were the first UK supermarket to launch vegan cupcakes onto the shelves before Asda followed suit with a dupe suspiciously similar.
If all else fails, there’s always good old Betty Crocker and a can of something fizzy to whip up a ‘homemade’ version. See my post here as a guide.
