If there was ever a brilliant excuse to do something a little special in lockdown, it has to be Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re baking for your sweetheart at home or want to deliver a lovely treat to your nearest and dearest, I’ve rounded up some ideas to brighten up your weekend. Lemon Basil Almond Drizzle Cake This cake is a firm favourite from East by West (page 95). This is a lighter take on a classic lemon drizzle, with a beautiful freshness from the basil. It’s made using a base of ground almonds and tapioca. Chocolate Raspberry Muffin Volcanoes The ultimate Valentine’s Day recipe, these muffin volcanoes are ooey-gooey and oh so delicious.

Jasmine’s 5 Valentine’s Day Bakes You’ll Love

If there was ever a brilliant excuse to do something a little special in lockdown, it has to be Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re baking for your sweetheart at home or want to deliver a lovely treat to your nearest and dearest, I’ve rounded up some ideas to brighten up your weekend.

Lemon Basil Almond Drizzle Cake

This cake is a firm favourite from East by West (page 95). This is a lighter take on a classic lemon drizzle, with a beautiful freshness from the basil. It’s made using a base of ground almonds and tapioca.

Chocolate Raspberry Muffin Volcanoes

The ultimate Valentine’s Day recipe, these muffin volcanoes are ooey-gooey and oh so delicious. They are not too sweet but just sweet enough thanks to sticky jam and dark chocolate. I make these using a gluten-free flour mix.

Blackberry Apple Ginger Buckwheat Cake

A mouthwatering cake that’s vegan and gluten-free — what more could you ask for? Delicious for a special breakfast hot out the oven or an afternoon tea, I love the tangy fruit paired with fresh ginger, and your loved ones will too.

Choc-Carob Love Cake

If you haven’t tried carob yet, this is your chance. Not only is it delicious in its own right, but it’s also a wonderful alternative to chocolate, which can be quite high in caffeine. This is a grown-up cake that’s complex thanks to the molasses and sesame oil, and just sweet enough.

Rose and Cardamom Gram Flour Bites (Ladoos)

Ladoos are a traditional Indian snack that’s perfect for packing up in a nice box and gifting. These no-bake rose and cardamom ones, made with toasted gram flour (chickpea), are super fragrant and absolutely delicious — think melt-in-the-mouth shortbread with a twist.
