Vegan sponge: 

1) Measure the sponge mix into a bowl, add the chickpea flour, tapioca flour and baking powder, stir to combine and sieve into a mixing bowl.

2) Put the oil and milk into another mixing bowl and beat together.

3) Add the prepared flour blend and beat into a smooth paste.

4) Put the mixture into the cake tin and smooth the tops.

5) Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and the sponges spring back when touched.

Lemon Curd:

1) In a small pot, whisk together the sugar and cornstarch. Now mix in the non-dairy milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and turmeric. Put over medium heat, whisking frequently, until the curd thickens, about 5 minutes. You may need to whisk vigorously as it thickens to ensure a smooth curd.

2) Remove from heat and pour into a heat safe container to cool. Enjoy warm or store in the fridge for up to 1 week. It will thicken more as it cools. 


Allow Lemon Curd and the cake to cool


1) In a bowl add Orange Wibble jelly powder and 1 pint of hot water. Stir until dissolved.


Mandarin coulis:

1) To make the chunky mandarin coulis, strain two tins of mandarins. Discard the juice and put the fruit into a saucepan with the sugar and heat gently until broken down. Remove from the heat.

2) In a small bowl, add 2 tablespoons of water with the arrowroot powders then add to the warm mandarins. Add the lemon juice and mix well before pouring into a large bowl.

To assemble:

1) Divide cake into two and spread on the lemon curd on one side. Sandwich the lemon curd between the two sponges and cut into pieces.

2) Add pieces into trifle bowl

3) Pour the jelly over the sponge pieces and set aside in the fridge to completely set. This will take approximately 2 hours. Once set, pour over the custard then arrange a single layer of almond biscotti biscuits, keeping a few back for the top. Pour over the mandarin coulis. In a large bowl, whip the double cream and pour on top of the mandarin coulis. Crumble over the reserved amaretti biscuits and decorate with the grated vegan chocolate.

Enjoy! xxx
