    We all want our children to be healthy. We all dream of getting extra veggies and nutritional goodness into them without having to beg and bribe. We all deserve a meal-time, which results in empty plates and compliments.

    And I believe it’s possible with the recipes within the 'Nurtured' eBooks.

    MY KIDS' JOINT PARTY + CHOCOLATE & STRAWBERRY CAKE RECIPE

    vegan gluten free dairy free chocolate strawberry cake

    On January 13th my firstborn turned 4. 

    On January 17th my baby turned 1. 

    On January 19th we threw them a joint birthday party with a [party] animal theme. 

    Meanwhile I was working at all hours after both kids were in bed to complete my eBooks ‘Nurtured - plant based recipes for kids’.

    January was nuts. 

    lake banks maher kids vegan party

    That party though!!

    Lake said it was the best day of her life. And we’re pretty sure it was too! 

    We hired a bouncy castle for Lakey’s gang, a soft play area for Banksy’s baby crew and incredibly it all fit inside The Living Room of My Chelsea/Tanya’s!!

     

    bouncy castle at My Chelsea Hotel _ kids vegan party for Banks and Lake Maher

     

    The entire buffet spread was 100% vegan and nut-free and the sweets were also gluten-free and refined-sugar-free in addition to that. 

    We ordered all the savoury yummies from My Chelsea and I did all the baking.

    Lake’s grown up cake was Chocolate with Strawberry Frosting and Banksy’s baby cake was Carob with Apricot Frosting, because a). I wanted them to match and b). there’s no stimulants or caffeine in carob.

    Here’s our plant based menu...

     

    From My Chelsea Hotel:

    Vegan Pizzas

    Vegan Pasties

    Vegan Sausage Rolls

    Vegan Nuggets

    Hummus + crudités + pita breads

    Beetroot falafels

     

    From ‘Nurtured - plant based recipes for kids’ eBooks:

    Blueberry Ice Lollies (Shakes & Ice Creams eBook)

    Baked Doughnuts (Dips & Party Foods eBook)

    Chocolate Cake & Strawberry Frosting (Birthday Cakes eBook) 

    Carob Cake & Apricot Frosting (Birthday Cakes eBook)

     

    lake and banks maher joint vegan birthday party 

      

    Lake specifically requested a Chocolate and Strawberry Cake, so that’s exactly what she got.

    The end result went down an absolute treat and was very popular among all the parents as well as the kiddos.

    It’s also a great staple cake recipe to keep handy and any one of your favourite frostings will go amazingly here, so have fun with it!

     

    Aaaaand if you're looking for the perfect recipe to bake on the upcoming Love Day (Valentine's Day is this Friday people!!), then you've just found it...

     

    VEGAN CHOCOLATE CAKE & STRAWBERRY FROSTING 

     Vegan gluten free chocolate cake with strawberry icing

    For the cake:

    (This recipe is enough for two 7-inch cakes just like you see in my pictures. Or you can make two slim 9-inch cakes instead.)

     

    3 cups (440g) GF self-raising flour

    3/4 cup (65g) cacao powder

    2 tsp baking soda

    1 tsp Himalayan pink salt

    1 1/2 cup (420g) agave nectar

    1 cup (200g) coconut milk from tin

    1 cup (200g) light olive oil

    2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

    2 tbsp ground flaxseed

    1 tbsp vanilla extract

     

    For the icing:

    2 cups (250g) ground xylitol

    1/3 cup (70g) vegan butter or a non-dairy spread

    280g jar of sugar-free strawberry jam

    3/4 block (150g) creamed coconut or 1/2 cup coconut butter

    optional: 2-8 tbsp coconut flour

      

     METHOD

    1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/390°F/gas mark 6. Grease two 7 inch (18cm) removable base cake tins with some olive oil.
    2. Place the flour, cacao powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and whisk together to combine.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk the coconut milk with agave, olive oil, vinegar, vanilla and ground flax.
    4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and whisk again to combine, but don’t over-do it. Distribute among the two greased tins in equal amounts, tap tins on a hard surface for the mixture to even out and let them sit for 5-10 minutes at room temperature.
    5. Place inside the hot oven and bake for 25 minutes. Cakes are ready when a sharp knife comes out clean or with a few crumbs stuck to it, just make sure not to overcook - this recipe is better gooey than too dry. Let the cakes cool entirely before getting started on the icing.
    6. You can grind xylitol in your blender, simply blend on high until powdered and wait for 2-3 minutes for the dust to settle before opening the lid. Place all of the icing ingredients, except the coconut flour, into a food processor and process until smooth (You may need to open the lid and scrape everything down from the sides of the jug).
    7. If you are making a Victoria sandwich-style cake, the cakes will need to be levelled off before they will stack neatly (only if the cakes haven’t sunk in the middle. If they’ve sunk, leave untouched). To do this, use a sharp knife to slice off the top of both cakes where they have over-risen. Then place a scoop of frosting onto the bottom cake and smooth out to the edges giving a generous layer of filling. Flip the second cake over and place on top. Pour the rest of the frosting on top of that if your icing is thick and spreadable but not runny. If it is too runny, add 1-2 tablespoons coconut flour to thicken it up and process to combine. Continue adding more coconut flour until the desired texture for icing your cakes has been achieved, careful not to over-do it as the coconut flour has a drying effect. Spread a generous amount of icing all over the top of the cake and take your time to carefully spread it towards the sides and then down the sides to completely cover the cake. If you like the exposed look of my cake, scrape off the icing from the sides as you are turning the cake on its stand. Decorate to your liking.

    What's next for Tanya's Cafe after 5 years!

    Tanya's Cafe raw food london chelsea

    Have you been following since the early days and remember this backdrop?

    Thank you SO much for sticking with me!

    I miss this kitchen so much, even though I love our remodel into Tanya's "The Deli" and know that by adding the take out + delivery aspect to our business is helping to nourish more of you. 

    I miss these adorable faces, even though I also adore the My Chelsea team managing the Deli. 

    So many mixed emotions celebrating our 5 year anniversary.

    The truth is, when we first opened, I had a vision of a 5 year project, but throughout the many ups and downs of running a restaurant over this period, a fear that the 5 years will be cut short and we’d have to close down prevailed.

    Well we don’t have plans to close even though the ‘project’ has undergone many changes, endings & beginnings over this time. 

    And then... on our 5 Year Birthday... it finally hit me!!

    I can see now that the ‘5 year vision’ was never about the restaurant making it massive or failing, it was just a cycle of a certain genre of my own life which has been preparing me for the next & most important stage yet...

    As you know, I’ve had 2 babies over these few years (really 4, because opening a cafe and publishing a book felt like giving birth in a way).

    My focus has shifted mainly to my kids and how to help them grow into strong, healthy, happy humans with a big appetite for nourishing food and adventure.

    I’ve been experimenting with healthy kids’ recipes and gathering winners for a couple of years now.

    Tanya Maher kids vegan recipes Nurtured

    Finally, I’ll be able to share the collection with other parents in the form of eBooks, videos and coaching, very very soon. 

    Nothing can take away this focus now. 

    I’m seriously motivated to watch more children grow up super well and healthy and to witness more parents feel confident and well informed in their decision making when it comes to feeding their children.

     

    So motivated in fact that I’ve recruited the most amazing intern to help me launch these projects and for Summer we've been busy testing and typing recipes in my kitchen as well as photographing kids of all ages enjoying them (so you can see proof that it's not only Lake's tastebuds :))


    All this awesomeness will be ready to launch very very soon!
