Vegetarian Desserts & Cakes

Vegetarian desserts and cake recipes. My favorite recipes are really yummy, but quite a bit more healthy and nutritious than the usual.

There are many types of vegetarian diets. Three of the most common are lacto-ovo vegetarian, lacto vegetarian and vegan.

  • Lacto-ovo vegetarians will basically eat any type of dessert, since they eat both milk products and eggs. But we don't use gelatine, and some cheeses which are made from or with animal products.
  • Lacto-vegetarians will also eat almost any dessert, except from where eggs have been used.
  • Vegans, however will not eat any type of products derived from or made with animals or bi-products of animals, which means also honey is a no-no.

I have been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for over 30 years, so here you will find most types of dessert recipes, but I try to make them a bit healthier with less sugar and less fat.

I also like to use fresh ingredients as often as possible, and usually to cook from scratch.

But nothing should be too complicated; in my opinion, it should be easy to swish together a dessert!

Vegetarian DessertsGreek yogurt, honey and walnuts. A healthy and simple vegetarian dessert.

Ancient Greek Dessert Recipes Greek recipes are famous for their simplicity. Using fresh and dried fruit, yogurt, honey, nuts and spices, you don't need much else. And quick to make too! Here are two easy dessert recipes where you can use the bounty of Mother Earth delectably: Greek Yogurt with Honey and Walnuts (Vegetarian) and Simple Fruit Salad with Honey and Cinnamon (Vegan).

Spicy Vegan Cake Recipe Normally dessert, cake and cookies recipes thwart me off, since they are to me a bit too fuzzy. But this spicy vegan cake always looks and tastes fantastic. The cake last for days (tastes better each day!), is a great gift and fills the house with pleasant, spicy, Christmas-y aromas.

Homemade Waffle Recipe These waffles should be served overindulgent, crispy fresh, made with real butter and served with real whipped cream and strawberry compote...(Lacto-ovo Vegetarian)

Barbro's Easy Cheesecake Recipe This is a super tasty cheesecake recipe. It is easy to make and holds well in the fridge. (Lacto-ovo vegetarian.)

Vegan Banana Walnut Muffins Actually a breakfast muffin recipe, but this is a great Vegan recipe without white sugar, so it's a nice treat if you try to cut down on sugar as well!
