The Best Vegan Recipe EVER!

How great does this look?

Hi Space
Just me again, checking in after a creative afternoon in my kitchen, which inspired me to blog on my creation, adored and rated by a non-vegan trifle lover! After I discovered a gelatine free jelly in the health food section of Coles yesterday, I came home to my partner dreaming of trifle, and I had a light bulb moment! It must be about 10 years since I have even eaten trifle, not that I missed it, but I had just bought gelatine free jelly and checked my cupboard for other ingredients, and wala!! Vegan Trifle was created, and it was a welcomed change on our menu! So I will share with you all my recipe incase you too are inspired!
So you need to make the vegan jelly found in Coles, no gelatine in this brand "Vitarum"
Can you believe people put the hooves of pigs in most of children's lollies and jelly's...I bet mothers would be horrified if their child tried to suck on the hoof of a pig, yet that is what "Gelatine" really is... a ground down pigs hoof!  Just a little sad knowledge for you all there!! Anyway....lets go back to the recipe without this sadness!
To make the sponge:
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup Castor sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp baking powder
Sift these ingredients then add,
  • 3/4 cup soy milk 
  • 1/4 cup canola oil.
Bake the mixture in any small tin and in the oven for approximately 20 minutes. It will need to be cut up or you can just break it up with your hands....
Then you need soy custard:
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1&1/2 tbsp raw sugar
  • 1 cup cold soy milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Mix cornflour to smooth liquid with little soy milk
Heat remaining milk with sugar. When it nearly boils, take it off and stir in cornflour.
Return to heat and boil, stir constantly and cook for another minute, add vanilla.
Then you just mix them all in together, the custard, cake and jelly in a clear bowl if you can to show off off the colours, and you can toss in some strawberries or raspberries or jam.Then top with Vanilla Bliss soy ice cream instead of the usual cream, and grate some of that vegan chocolate from Aldi, for $2.50 the peppermint version of "Moser Roth" works for me!!
Enjoy with your family, or take it to the next party!
