Allergy safe Marble cake



Having to be dairy free isn't the easiest thing sometimes, especially when all you want to do is indulge in cake and you can't just go out and buy one from a shop. This means I have to bake often to keep this urge at bay, which occurs a lot. My sister's gluten free (also not from choice) so I tend to bake for both our needs to allow us both some indulgence every now and again. I must stress that this is a Sainsbury's recipe however I've just adapted it to mine and my sisters dietary needs. This can be adapted further depending on your needs and I have used an egg replacement before which has also worked fine.

Ingredients (dairy free and gluten free):
225g Dairy free butter
225g Caster sugar
4 eggs
225g Gluten free self raising flour
3 tbsp of Soya milk/almond milk
1tsp Vanilla extract
2 tbsp cocoa powder/raw cacao
1 tsp Xanthan gum

Steps:
1. Your oven needs to be pre-heated to 180C/160C for fan ovens/gas 4. I used any tin I had in the cupboard and this mixture was fine in it. To be honest I totally winged this step so I will let you do the same ;) . Sainsbury's recommends a 20cm cake tin. I line my tins with greaseproof paper as I find it the easiest rather than buttering the tin and all that.
2. Beat the butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy, add eggs to the mixture one at a time and mixture after each one. FOLD the flour through, then add milk and vanilla extract, Xanthan gum and mix until mixture is completely smooth.*You tube video showing how to fold flour HERE.
3. Divide the mixture into two and put in separate bowls. Stir in the cocoa powder into one of the mixtures. Have two spoons and use to randomly dollop the chocolate and vanilla mixture into the tin. When it has covered the tin and you have used it all, take a knife or a kebab stick and swirl it around a few times to create the marble effect.
4. Bake your yummy cake for 45 mins or until a skewer or knife can be put into the centre of the cake and pulled out to reveal its clean. 

The obvious things to remember: Wash your hands first, keep in an airtight container for upto 3 days, and if freezing it can be kept for upto 3 months.

Now what are you waiting for????? Go make it and enjoy the fluffiest cake ever!! Please tag me in any photos taken of your marble cakes, and if using hashtags please use #JPMarbleCake

Much love

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
