FE Vegan Bake Off – Round 5 – Hong Kong

This week, we’re in Hong Kong.

Now, I thought I’d try out some traditional mochi for this round, but lack of coconut oil put a stop to that idea.

I then found a gorgeous recipe for chocolate and tofu muffins, and I adapted it (seeing as someone can’t eat chocolate (!)) and made coconut and vanilla tofu muffins.

The verdict?

  • Not too bad in the taste department
  • A little bit chewy so I think I might have over-mixed when I added the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients
  • Easy to make, so definitely recommend it.

The recipe I used was from a website called ‘Fig and Cherry‘ – and the link will take you to the chocolate recipe.

Coconut and vanilla tofu muffins


  • 250g (2 cups) plain flour
  • 85g (1/2 cup) desiccated coconut
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspooon salt
  • 220g (1 cup) caster sugar
  • 150g (1 cup) silken tofu
  • 250ml (1 cup) Vanilla flavoured soy milk (I used hemp milk with 1tsp of vanilla extract in)
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) maple syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C / 375F / Gas Mark 5 / 170 Fan
  2. Grease a twelve hole muffin tin with the dairy free spread – or use muffin cases
  3. In a large bowl mix together the flour, coconut, baking powder, salt and sugar and then set aside
  4. Place the tofu, soy milk, vanilla extract, vinegar and maple syrup into a blender, or bowl
  5. Process for 10 seconds until smooth – ignore the video when I say 10 minutes … oops!
  6. There may still be a few small tofu lumps but that’s fine.
  7. Pour the tofu mixture into the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined
  8. (Don’t over mix or the muffins will be chewy)
  9. Spoon the batter into the muffin pan holes
  10. Bake on the center shelf for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean
  11. Cool on a wire rack – they can be eaten warm or cold

They don’t look too bad …

… and here’s how you make them:

Busy baking month is March.

In a fortnight Formula E is in China and in between, the F1 season kicks off in Australia and F1 Bake Off is making a return for 2019.
