I don't just eat vegan cake and drink liqueur, but...
How long am I going to keep banging on about having a working oven? Well, the novelty's not worn off yet, sorry good folk of the internet, I just have to keep going on about it. Look at all the wonderful things you can make in an oven:
I can't remember what the one above is called, but it's basically a vegan lava cake. The packaging recommended microwaving the delicious goodies within, but I don't have one of them. You know what I do have? A WORKING OVEN! You're getting the idea now, I guess. A few minutes in a hot oven and there was an incredible chocolate lava cake, with all the sort of warm oozing middle and crisp outer you could ask for.
(Note the presence of a cake fork there too - a recent present from my mother in law. Cool huh? I don't know who thought the world needed a separate eating iron for dessert, but they're alright by me.)
Also from Lujuria Vegana, this (non-ovened) chocolate and hazelnut cake. Imagine the best Ferrero Rocher in the world, and you're half there.
London-based vegans, consider Lujuria Vegana a must-eat (is there such a thing as a must-eat? There is now if not). It's not cheap, but it's worth it. Fingers crossed Whole Foods put them in more stores.
On the homemade side of things this week, I've been attempting some liqueur making. Back when lychees were cheap, I bought a few bags and left them to steep in some vodka with some ginger and lime zest. I finally got around to decanting it and adding the sugar syrup recently.
It went this rather fetching pale peach-yellowy colour:
