Yeah I went there and had a Vegan Sticky Toffee Cake with custard for breakfast today. Because that’s just how I roll. No only joking, I definitely don’t roll that way, but I have managed to make this pudding worthy of being categorised as a suitable breakfast item (way better than the likes of Belvita and alike, which literally resemble blocks of sawdust, they should label them as a choking hazard).
And yes, it’s also one of your 5-a-day (a public health message we throw around in England where you’re supposed to consume at least five portions of fruits and veggies per day), a guideline that I have a slight – actually moderate, okay, in all honesty, high obsession with, to the point where I’ll even count portions on my fingers…that’s when people start walking away.
I pumped this up crazy with oats (there’s your porridge), served it up with a portion of toffee sauce (this is the fruit bit) and topped it with a whole load of custard (obv made with calcium-fortified plant milk) and if you’re one for protein you can shove in some protein powder or ground nuts and literally, Bob is your flipping uncle.
