Dairy Free Vegan



Cook Time



  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup dark muscovado sugar, unrefined
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon anise, ground
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons turmeric
  • A small pinch of black pepper, ground
  • 1 tablespoon rosewater

  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, raw


  1. In a large bowl, mix wholemeal flour, anise, baking powder, black pepper, and turmeric.
  2. Add olive oil to the mixture and mix well using your hands to help the flour absorb the olive oil.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the non-dairy milk with sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. Add non-dairy milk and sugar mixture, rosewater, and the orange blossom water to the flour mixture, and mix until combined.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper, or lightly grease with olive oil.
  6. Pour the batter in the baking tray and spread evenly with the help of a spatula. Sprinkle the pine nuts on top and bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool, divide in equal portions, and serve.
