This week on TOV, I am looking at shop-bought bakery. It is so hard to find vegan items in the bakery aisle at supermarkets as this is traditionally where most of the products contain some kind of dairy or eggs. I mainly bake my own but if you are out and about or need something in for unexpected guests, Mr Kipling comes to the rescue as two of the main line of products are vegan-friendly.
The first is the Apple & Blackcurrant Pies. Strangely, the Apple Pies contain dairy, but the Apple & Blackcurrant do not! There are often other seasonal pies, mainly around Christmas, which sometimes are vegan too, last year they had a winter fruit pie selection which was vegan-friendly.
In addition to the pies, the Mr Kipling Jam Tart selection is also vegan-friendly and quite often both packets are on offer for 2 for £2 in the supermarkets. The regular price is around £1.49.
They don't taste as nice as home-made but they are tasty and they are good to have in the cupboard for times when you don't have time to bake.
If you prefer to make your own vegan food, come back tomorrow for the Vegan Recipe of the Week.
What are you vegan-friendly supermarket bakery finds? Let me know in the comments below.
