Plant-based Baking @ Gipton

New to plant-based or vegan baking? This class will help you conquer three essential baking styles.

About this experience

On this session the Leeds Cookery School chefs will introduce you to plant-based and vegan bakery, giving you a solid foundation to create your own bakes at home!

Techniques you will learn:

  • Learn the fundamental knowledge of creating plant-based biscuits and cookies. You will be shown how different vegetable fats can impact the shape, flavour and texture of your finished bakes. 

  • Hint and tips for creating plant-based cakes that boast moisture and flavour.

  • How to employ various seasonal fruits and vegetables in baking, and how to effectively substitute eggs and butter in a baking recipe.

  • How to make a crisp-textured pastry using plant-based fats.


The recipes will be provided for you to take home and add to your repertoire, so you can keep making them time and time again! You will make:

  • Plant-Based Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Spiced Apple Cider Cake with Speculoos Icing

  • Provençal Tomato Galette

What you can take home:

There is a tasting session after each class where you have the chance to sample the tutor’s version of each dish. You will also take home everything that you’ve made.
