Long time no see!

Well hi everyone, I am so sorry I haven't posted in ages and when I have, it has been inconsistent. I have been incredibly busy with school, exams, work and more and I physically haven't had the time to blog or bake.

Also, I feel "Baking the Day" isn't me any more, you get what I mean?

If you follow me on Instagram -->nourishwithhappiness<--, you'll see that I post completely different things on there to what I post here; nice cream, waffles, pancakes and fruit, compared to cakes, cupcakes and brownies.

This is because, well, I guess "baking" really isn't my thing anymore. Plus, I prefer to eat and enjoy a bowl of banana ice cream or a stack of vegan pancakes than a cake or pie.

Eating more natural and healthy things makes me feel good and nourished with goodness, where as eating a cake or cookie makes me feel lethargic, bad and even a little guilty.

Anyway, what I am leading to is that Baking the Day is a not a good name for this blog. So, I am going to change the name of this blog to Nourish with Happiness, the same as my Instagram.

I feel the name reflects me and the blog more as well as the new content.

Please leave your comments down below.

Hugs and squeezes,

Chai Spice, Ginger and Orange Cake {Vegan}

This cake is Christmas!

Sweet and spicy as well as being egg and dairy free. This is just a very short post as I have been so busy recently with exams and work.
Anyway, this cake is uber tasty and perfect for winter. The warming ginger with the flavourful chai tea and sweet orange give the cake a lovely flavour.

Happy baking and hugs and squeezes,

Gingerbread Cookie Bars {Vegan}

Anyone feeling super festive and excited for the holiday season? I swear cinnamon spice and clementine zest are the only things I can smell right now!

So finally I have baked again, it seems so long since I last turned on the oven. For some, it may be way too early to get into the festive spirit but for me, I think this is the perfect time of the year to slowly get into the Christmassy mood. My first item on my "get into Christmas" check list is always to make some seasonal treats so ta dah!

2 Ideas for a quick lunch {Vegan}

Just to start of the post, I am sure you all know about what happened in Paris on the night of the 13th and the early hours of the 14th. This horrific and terrifying event has shock the world and it is so hard to imagine that only 11 months ago was the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris as well.

I love the city of Paris and France so it just seems very surreal that yet another attack has happened in the city.

Let's just wish for peace for the citizens of Paris, France and the world.

3-ingredient Banana Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce {Vegan}

These banana pancake are so delicious as well as being healthy. Topped with chocolate sauce, this single-serving breakfast is a perfect way to start your day.

How amazing do these pancakes look covered in chocolate sauce?

Answer - very amazing.

Sweet, simple pancakes, filled with goodness and plants, yum!

I cannot believe that it is so near the Christmas and holiday season, I can't wait! It is only 46 days (!!!) and I have so many festive bakes and makes this year, I'll have to start soon!

So, I am in love with breakfast recipe right now. At the weekends, I always treat myself, take my time and make an effort to make something super good for breakfast. Instead of muesli or porridge, I normally make variations of banana ice cream or pancakes. I say treat but to be honest, my nice cream and pancakes are packed full of nutrients as well as being low fat, no added sugars and fairly high carb, to keep you full and give you energy.

I am sure you would of seen these pancakes before on instagram, pinterest or just on the web. These pancakes are super easy and only contain 3 main ingredients; banana, oats and plant-milk as well as 2 optional ingredients; baking powder and vanilla extract. Even though the baking powder and vanilla are optional, I recommended you add them as they make them even tastier and fluffier.

These pancakes are so easy to make and really quick as well. As the main ingredients are oats, banana and plant milk, they are a cheap and healthy breakfast. Simply blend the oats in jug until they are powdery and add the banana and milk as well as the baking powder and vanilla if using, and blend again. The batter should be quite thick but pourable.

Once the batter is made, heat up a non-stick frying pan and cook the pancakes for 3-4 minutes until they are all bubbly on top and the edges are matte and cooked. Flip over and cook again.
