PETA has launched their Great Vegan Bake-Off for the sixth year running, inviting bakers to put their vegan baking skills to the test. Twelve finalists will have their recipes shared by the animal rights organisation, spreading vegan baking joy and one baker will crowned the 2018 champion.
PETA director Elisa Allen, said: “It’s time for the UK’s top vegan bakers to show us what they’ve got. PETA’s Great Vegan Bake-Off seeks to crown the best cruelty-free confections, from egg-free meringues to coconut milk custard and beyond.”
PETA note that their vegan bake-off is beneficial to animal welfare, encouraging non-vegans to try new recipes that are free of animal ingredients, by not contributing to the suffering of cows that are separated from new-born calves and chickens that are kept in tiny cages on egg farms.
The benefits of a vegan diet are innumerable, but using animal-free ingredients in all lines of cooking reduces the risk of chronic health problems, such as heart disease, obesity and cancer –make sure you enjoy cake in moderation, though!
You can enter their Great Vegan Bake-Off and submit your recipes by 1st October here.
Last year’s winner, Lorna Songhurst, founder of Totally Nuts by Blue-Milk catering company in Kent, won the challenge with her raw chocolate orange layer cake, which is topped with a fluffy chocolate mousse – you can find the recipe here.
The Great British Bake Off is including a vegan week in their 2018 series, which is currently being aired.
