What Emmy Bakes: Blueberry and Apple Eggless Loaf

In between applying for jobs so that I can progress in my Charity Legal career and preparing for my last exam I still find that I have a lack of structure in my life. This has enabled my nurturing side to fully unleash itself and boy I am not complaining about it!!

Over the past few weeks, I have cooked numerous dishes and yummy treats.

After a few too many compliments and words of encouragement I decided I shall try and blog more about the what I make.

Blueberry and apple eggless loaf

The recipe is so simple and all in all it took around 45 minutes to bake and 20 minutes to prep.

I measure in cups.


1/2 cup of oil

1 cup of soy milk

2 cups of plain flour

1tsp of baking powder

1tsp of bicarbonate soda

1 large cooking apple

5 generous tsp of 100% blueberry jam – feel free to add real blueberries

1 1/2 cup of brown sugar



Pre heat the over to 180 degrees

Grease pan you are planning to place the loaf in by spreading a small amount of cooking oil around it

Mix sugar and oil in mixing bowl, then add chopped apples and blueberry jam

Afterwards add flour, baking powder, bicarbonate soda

Slowly mix the milk, oil and vanilla essence to the mixture

Place the mixture into the greased pan and place in the oven

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes and dip a knife or something similar to check that no the mixture has fully baked

Once baked leave the cake to cool for half an hour before eating and sharing with friends!


Excuse the plate… Bona appetit!

Favourite Meal of the Day [!]

What is your favourite meal of the day?

Not a question I am asked about a lot but something I love to talk about at any given moment…


I could eat brunch for breakfast, lunch and dinner if that were possible.

One of the best things about living in London is the opportunity to visit different spots to dine, I must admit that I have been very tight on where and when I brunch due to living on student budget. (I am a lover of cooking meals – brunches are a speciality). But a few places I have checked out and loved are:

Dishoom, Shoreditch – try their sausage naan roll

Franze and Evans, Shoreditch – try their scrambled Tuscan eggs and smoked salmon

Bills Islington – try their Bills granola and yoghurt with fruit skewers

Albion Café, Shoreditch – try their Albion granola, yoghurt and poached fruit

I recently went to Sky Gardens in Bank for my 22nd birthday and ate at the Darwin Brasserie, the views were impeccable and I got to eat some very, very, very good food!

The staff were very friendly and so sweet – they sang happy birthday to me and bought me a little peach ice cream birthday plate.
