I saw that Peta was running a Great vegan bake off and thought I HAVE to get in on that! A few months ago I saw this recipe by the amazing “Comforting Vegan” and thought it sounded amazing! I never got round to making it then this week I thought I’d have a go at making my own version as a challenge to myself!
