Compassionate Cakes 2014

Bake with Compassion is returning for its sixth year this October. To get you started, here are some fabulous free-range and vegan recipe ideas. Please remember that it's not just the eggs that should be higher welfare. All dairy, including butter, milk, and cream (and for those who like to use suet or lard) should be free-range or organic.

For those of you trying to avoid gluten, here's a carrot cake recipe by Jamie Oliver. Please remember to buy higher welfare butter and cream cheese (Jamie's already written a reminder about the eggs).

Raw Chocolate Chunk Cheesecake with Peanut Butter and Coconut. Especially for people on the raw food diet, why not try this vegan cheesecake.

The combination of lemon and raspberry sync perfectly together in this raw vegan cheesecake for a sweet and slightly tangy taste.

Another recipe from Jamie. These brownies look amazing, and they're vegan!

It may be a Christmas favourite, but when isn't chocolate and cream a favourite? Suitable for any time of the year. Once again, please make sure the eggs and cream are higher welfare!

The Ultimate Chocolate Roulade. This recipe is taken from: Baking Bible by Mary Berry. Ingredients: plain chocolate, such as Bourneville caster sugar 6 large eggs, separated 2 tbsp cocoa powder, sifted. The filling is whipped cream

This millefeuille from Gordon Ramsay looks great, and you can just imagine that basil and summer fruits is actually an amazing combination! Bear in mind, white chocolate contains milk, so for greater certainty of higher welfare, buy organic white chocolate, that uses organic milk :)

Strawberry & white chocolate millefeuille

defy you not to fall completely in love with this Gordon Ramsey Strawberry & White Chocolate Millefeuille. It does take an hour to make but boy is it worth it and to avoid dinner party havoc, it can be prepared a couple of hours in advance.

Fancy trying something a little different? We've all had rice pudding and know how great it is, so why not try this Lokshen Pudding, made from noodles!

What about a good old-fashioned lemon meringue pie? Clearly the Guardian and BBC both have the same food writers. The higher welfare has once again been omitted, but we know you'll make it compassionate!

How to make the perfect lemon meringue pie

Felicity Cloake: Is lemon meringue pie an ostentatious delight deserving of modernisation, or a retro dessert best left in the past? And which other dated desserts deserve a revival?

Another recipe from the Queen of Cakes. A more grown up version of a children's favourite. For those avoiding dairy or eggs, the recipe contains very little dairy, so making substitutions should be fairly simple.

This variation on the classic Battenburg cake uses coffee and walnut instead for a sophisticated cake, giving it a unique and satisfying twist.

To get started, here is a great article from The Independent. A range of vegan cakes and tarts to suit any sweet tooth/beak/snout.

Some gluten-free blueberry muffins. The recipe says "1 egg, preferably free range", but we all know that should read "at the very least free range" (and that applies to the butter, buttermilk and milk as well :) )
