Ratlady’s Veghog Slice (I love the name!!)


8 oz biscuits, crushed (Hobnobs are best)

4 oz vegan marg

1 tbsp golden syrup

1 dessertspoon cocoa

2 dessertspoons drinking chocolate

1 dessertspoon sugar

100g bar of plain vegan chocolate


Melt everything except the biscuits and chocolate gently in a large pan. Take off the heat, add the biscuits and mix well.

Pile the mixture onto a small, greased baking tray and press down firmly with your hands. (If you haven't got a small baking tray, use a standard one but only press the mixture into half of it.)

Melt the chocolate and pour over the top of the cake. Put in a fridge or cool place for one hour to set. Cut into slices to serve. Yum!

300ml pineapple juice

15g dried yeast

50g soya flour, 50g millet flour 50g brown rice flour but have used both doves bread flour and their plain flour instead and seems to work

1 table spoon wheat free baking powder

2 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons sunflower oil

500g mix prunes sultanas raisins currents

125g chopped dates ( can miss these out and use more prunes or couple banannas don't substitute just mixed fruit as i did or doesn't work)

2 cooking (or 3 eating if needs be) apples peeled and chopped

Put yeast in pineapple juice and watch froth

Have got adapted bannana raisin loaf recipe that comes out more like a bread pudding too somewhere will dig it out if anyone wants it


Yes please Marmite

Interesting that the Ratlady’s Veghog Slice refers to vegan ingredients & then states hobnobs are the best biscuits to use - are they vegan?


I don't think UK Hob nobs are vegan - perhaps Ausie ones are!

There is my chocolate cake somewhere in the depths of the boards...



We regularly have to make vegan/egg /dairy free cakes for school.

We use Pure margerine and instead of eggs we use 25g silken tofu for each egg. It gives cakes a yummy rich taste.

Will try and find my wheat, egg, dairy free cake - I posted it on here years ago.



Chrissie, your recipe is here:


Wow lots of new recipes to try. Will have to try Ratladys Veghog slice, can tease the boys about the ingredients. Also will try the fruit cake as have half a butternut sitting in the fridge. Think will soon put back on all the weight that lost on the hospital diet. Thank you Kate and Marmite, my boys will be alot happier knowing that i will still be making cake. My middle son said this evening ' mummy you can still make us cakes but not eat them yourself'. But least with all these recipes i will be able to have a slice or two.


oooh, not thought of using Tofu as an egg substitute!

Have used it as a cheese substitute in cheese cake!

Keep the cakes rolling folks!

Love & cakes
