About this book

Great British Bake Off finalist Ruby Bhogal is here to delight us with a flexible approach to baking tasty, sweet treats that give you double helpings of temptation. She brings us 50 like-for-like recipes, with a plant-based and non- plant-based version for each bake.

We all remember watching in horror as Ruby's showstopper cake collapsed on the first-ever Vegan Week on the Great British Bake Off. Instead of slinking off with her tail between her legs, she was determined to master the art of baking and bake, bake, bake again until she could say with confidence that her recipes were failproof. Sharing new bakes and videos online, Ruby discovered a growing demand for adaptable recipes without eggs, dairy, or a full plant-based twist. She wanted her bakes to cater to everyone's needs, no matter the dietary preference.

Raised in a British-Indian household, Ruby's mostly vegetarian diet sparked a sugar rush to create recipes adaptable to a flexitarian approach. In this book, you get double the options, since each of the 50 recipes is presented twice: first in its traditional form and then with a plant-based alternative. This clever concept revolutionizes your baking experience, giving you the freedom to bake with choice.

Mouthwatering recipes include: Chai Custard Creams, Peanut Butter & Jelly Millefeuille Cake, Pina Colada Meringue Roulade, Medjool Date & Orange Sweet Samosas, and the Bruce Bogtrotter Chocolate Cake.

One Bake, Two Ways has an inclusive approach that makes Ruby’s recipes achievable for all—there's no sacrifices here—every last bite is delicious! With adaptability galore and flavors that offer twice the delight, dive into Ruby's world of baking and savor the best of both worlds.

About the author

After spending what seemed like an eternity studying for a MA in Architecture, Ruby Bhogal spent ten months living with her parents, applying for every job under the sun and watching far too much daytime TV. During a dark period of unemployment, baking provided Ruby with a productive outlet to regain some order in her life. While her love of baking began as a meditative hobby, it soon provided a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete as a finalist on the Great British Bake Off in 2018. Since then she has acquired a huge and loyal following online and makes regular appearances in print, at live events, and on TV, where her confidence and chatty personality shines through.
