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

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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
