Welcome to the veg files.

As a longtime vegetarian I started this blog as a place to share tips, recipes and general knowhow on maintaining a healthy vegetarian lifestyle. When I first became a vegetarian I was pretty lost and confused about just how to make sure I and my family got the right amount of nutrition, so I hope that this blog will help anyone out there who is feeling the same way. Of course, I hope this blog is useful to the old hands out there too!

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I know I will enjoy writing it.

How to make a basic vegan sponge cake.

Making a decent vegan cake can be a tricky business, this is a good basic cake recipe that I have found to be tasty and simple to make.


200g super fine or caster sugar.
400g self raising flour.
200ml sunflower oil.
300ml soya milk
1 tsp lemon juice.
1 tsp good vanilla essence.
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda.


Mix the caster sugar and the flour together and then stir in the oil. In a jug mix the soya milk, the lemon juice, vanilla essence and the bicarbonate of soda together. Add the liquid to the flour mix and stir well. Pour the better into a greased cake tin and bake in a moderate oven, 180 - 200 c for around 40 minutes. If a knife pushed into the middle of the cake comes out clean then the cake is cooked.

You can add cocoa powder to make this a chocolate cake, or lemon zest and a little extra juice to make lemon cake. Let your imagination run wild and use this basic recipe to make any cake you fancy. Let me know how your cake turns out.
