Animal Aid Vegan Bake Off 2021

Posted on the 23rd September 2021

In June 2020, we held Animal Aid’s first Vegan Bake Off to give our supporters a chance to showcase their creations and show how easy it can be to cook with cruelty-free ingredients. This summer, our Bake Off returned and this time with a junior category too!

Once again we received lots of wonderful entries with a huge variety of recipes, proving that whatever your favourite treat is, it can easily be made vegan.

We were so impressed with our supporters’ creativity in all of the wonderful entries they submitted. We uploaded all of the photos to our Facebook page and the entries with the most likes, comments and shares went through to our final. Our judging panel: vegan food blogger Aaron Calder, last year’s winner Joy Besford, and Tom from Project Vegan Baking, then had the difficult job of selecting our winners and they chose…
