2/3 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
 1 cup Pumpkin Puree
1+1/2 tsp Pumpkin spice
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 cup Soy Milk
1 tsp Vinegar
1/4 tsp Salt

Cream Cheese Frosting 
1 Tub Tofutti Cream Cheese
3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1-2 cups Icing sugar (powdered sugar)
2 Tbsp Dairy free Butter
Just combine with hand held beaters, chill till serving 

In a bowl add the flour, Spices, sugar, baking soda and baking powder and salt, now whisk it well.
Add the oil, vinegar, pumpkin and milk and mix well, It should be a thick batter consistency.
Add patty pans to a cup cake tin and scoop our almost a full scoop of batter to each liner, Pop them in a pre heated oven 170C till golden and spring back in the center when touched, Leave over night for best results.  Enjoy!  =) 

Easy "Vegan Peppermint Choc Chip No-Churn Ice Cream"

Here's one you DON"T need an ice Cream maker for and Just 2 simple ingredients gets you an easy ice cream base, And you can add any flavor you like to it after that! I don't eat ice cream very often, But Sometimes when I want some it's always so expensive
I decided to make my own for half the price and double the quantity of bought ice cream.

2 refrigerated cans Coconut Cream (water tipped off)
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk I use
Peppermint Essence
Green Food Coloring (optional)

Making sure the stand mixer bowl is chilled for best results, Add the coconut cream and mix on medium speed till it starts to thicken, Add the condensed milk now and mix again.
Now add the food coloring a drop at a time till the desired color, turn off mixer when it is fluffy. Add the choc chips now and stir through, Put into containers and pop in the freezer for 3-4 hrs. Enjoy!  =)

Halloween Vegan Kitty Litter Cake

I started making Halloween things last year and it grew popular, So I'm keeping the tradition going.
This is a basic vegan chocolate cake recipe HERE! but I poked holes into the cake after it cooled and gave it a good drizzle of Kahlua (is vegan) to soak up.
I used the glaze from the same recipe and then added Nice biscuits (is vegan) crushed on top, For the little poops I used Oreos (are vegan in AU) crushed with some tofutti cream cheese mixed and made by hand. Enjoy!  =)
