The Great Vegan Bake-Off 2014 Winner

Posted by on September 10, 2014 | Permalink

Vegan baking is clearly in! This year’s Great Vegan Bake-Off saw dozens of entries, including delicious breads, cakes, muffins and tarts, all made without eggs, dairy products or any other ingredients derived from animals.

From the 10 finalists, choosing the best was a difficult task, but your votes have been counted, and our judges have made up their minds.

The winner is …

Ombre Vanilla Dream Cake by Katy Beskow at Little Miss Meat-Free!

PETA UK Vegan Bake Off Winner

Katy is a self-taught home cook and blogger from Yorkshire, and her vegan vanilla sponge cake with strawberry balsamic jam looks delicious.

A classic cake that is light and airy with a delicate sweet flavour, Katy’s vanilla sponge hides lashings of strawberry balsamic jam and is topped with an ombre rose buttercream icing. The results may look difficult, but Katy has shared her simple techniques for how to make her gorgeous cake. Read her tips and see the full recipe, then have a go yourself!

Vegan Bake Off PETA Winner

Thanks to everyone who entered and the hundreds of vegan baking fans who voted to help us decide who we should choose as the winner. The winner was chosen by PETA based on several factors, including vote count.

Last year’s winner, Hannah Banana, came a close second with her banana split cake. In third place was the delicious-looking coffee-and-walnut cheese-less cake from Jennifer at PS … It’s Vegan.
