Summer Fruit Crescent Bowls

Hello My glamorous friends , I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far . In the London I can finally say SUMMER IS HERE ! (But I want to jinks it , but it could rain in a couple of days or so . ) As summer is here in full swing I thought it was wise to do summer themed food . So these Summer fruit crescent bowls can get messy due to the sugar sauce being on the watery side however , if you would like it to thicker you could add more chia seeds or add 1tsp of corn flour .  


Shortcrust pastry Ingredients :

175g plain flour
25g icing sugar
100g cold vegan butter
2-3 Tbsp cold water


Method :
Add  flour and icing sugar  into a large mixing bowl. Add the margarine or butter and rub in gently with fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add 3 tablespoons cold water until the pastry comes together in a ball. After that rap the  dough in cling film and place in the fridge for 1 hour .Preheat your oven to 180c or gas mark 4   , Once one hour has passed divide the mixture into four . Get a muffin or cupcake tin and place in face down .

sorry it was really hard to explain but I hope this helps .



 

Place in the oven and let it cook for 15mins , once its done let the dough cool for ten minutes . After that twist the gently anti - clockwise and there you have it your Crescent Bowls. Now the fruit part ...

Summer fruit sauce Ingredients :

1 cup water
150 g of caster sugar
2 cups frozen summer fruits
2 Tbsp chia seeds
 
Method :

Heat the sugar and water add the frozen fruits as soon as the sugar water mixture begins to simmer .
 Leave the mixture to bubble for 3-4 minutes to leach their juices and begin to soften. You still want whole berries where possible though. Pour the hot berry mix through a sieve so that the juices drain into a bowl. Add the chia seeds the fruit juice and leave for 15mins . Now you should have thick yet watery sauce . In a blender add the fruit juice and blend till the sauce becomes smooth . Place the fruits the you removed earlier into the fruit juice and mix till well combine. place the fridge and leave to chill for 30mintes . Grab your Crescent Bowl and place the chilled summer fruit sauce inside and serve .

Vegan Banana bread


Hello my glamorous friends I hope you are well . As most vegan's will tell when transitioning in to the vegan lifestyle bananas easily becomes your best friend , the versatility of the fruit is endless  . ( personally I do think we all underestimate the banana but we shouldn't !  ) The possibilities are endless when it comes to bananas as I said before but you can honestly do so much with a banana such as use it a an egg replacer , thickening agent in smoothie's and most of all banana ice cream !!
The list goes on and on when it comes to the uses of a bananas .


For the banana bread:
300g bananas
110gcaster sugar
320g plain flour
140g plant based milk
15g baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon

For the topping:
1banana (100g)
desiccated coconut
brown sugar

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (340°F).
  2. Roughly chop the bananas, place them into a bowl and thoroughly mash them with a fork to obtain a thick puree with no large pieces.
  3. Add in the sugar, the milk, the cinnamon and stir well to incorporate them.
  4. Add in the flour and mix it in a little at the time; we like to add it in 3 times to make sure it disperses properly before adding more. Whilst you are adding the second part of the flour, tip in the baking powder.
  5. Grease a loaf pan, pour in the batter and level it with a spatula.
  6. For the topping, lengthways cut half of a banana, and place the haled banana in the middle of batter . sprinkle desiccated coconut and brown sugar .
  7. Place the pan into the oven and start counting the cooking time. You want to cook the bread for 30minutes.
  8. At the end of the cooking process, pierce the bread with a toothpick to ensure it is cooked. If it is cooked, the pick will come out dry and with no mixture on it.
  9. Leave to cool and soon after serve .
