Natalia Lima, a Florida based baker is a fan of The Great British Bake Off and she is setting about “veganising” the show. She is making a vegan version of one of the desserts each week from the current Season 10, as reported by VegNews.
Each week, the baker chooses one of the recipes and gives it a suitable vegan makeover.
So far this has led to vegan versions of cinnamon rolls from the bread challenge week and a chocolate orange custard cake from the 1920s challenge week.
Lima films herself creating the recipes and posts the resulting videos together with her step-by-step guides on how to make the desserts in her Instagram stories series.
Anything can be veganized with some effort
“I’ve been a fan of the show for years and I knew I wasn’t the only one who was excited for the new season, so I thought it’d be fun for me to bake along—with the added challenge that everything I baked had to be vegan,” said Lima. “So far I’ve learned that indeed anything can be veganized with some effort, research, and stubborn will. It takes some adapting, of course, but the essence of the challenges are preserved.”
Given the popularity of the Great British Bake Off, it is hardly surprising that there is a huge demand for vegan versions of the challenges. Just watching the show makes the average person hungry and yearn to start baking. Since there is going to be a vegan version of just about any meal, making the inspiration of the show available to vegans is to be welcomed.
Lima is delighted with the response and is selling the cakes on her website. She is working on an e-book for the end of the show’s season that will include her veganized recipes. Should be essential reading for all vegan bakers. Good luck to her!
