What’s a Bronut, I hear you ask? A delicious brownie-donut fusion of course! Created in Cheshire by the immensely talented Emma at Soul Vegan Brownies. A self-confessed chocoholic, she initially created her drool-worthy range of brownies to share her love for cruelty free baking – showing you can indulge yourself without causing any harm and by nourishing yourself at the same time. Each order is handmade and believe me, it’s the best delivery you will receive! After about 3 years of her vast array of gluten free, refined sugar free and vegan brownies, Emma has now branched into the land of Bronuts. For now, they all have a rich chocolate-y batter studded with chocolate chips and the toppings are sensational. She is constantly creating hew flavours and I cannot wait to try more after sampling six of her amazing Bronut bakes.
Dipped in white creamy dairy free chocolate, the freeze-dried fruit pieces add a refreshing zing, contrasting with the sweet batter. The fudgy base melts in your mouth along with the vegan white chocolate – which isn’t easy to come across. Smooth and silky, this Bronut isn’t too sweet and is a perfect fruity treat.
A match made in heaven! Vibrant green pistachio pieces and gorgeously pink rose petals, this is one civilised bake. The icing layer is the same creamy white chocolate which works beautifully with the slight saltiness of the pistachio nuts.
Another delicious and classic flavour combination that works wonders on top of a cake-y Bronut base and creamy dairy-free dark chocolate coating. A crispy dried banana coin, a sweet and nutty pecan and you’ve got dessert in a mouthful. I really liked the simplicity of the design on this Bronut along with the rich chocolate-y topping. A more indulgent bake, for sure, without being heavy or too sweet.
A beauty to behold and perhaps the one I was most excited for. A crunchy, salty pretzel and a sprinkling of hemp hearts contrast well with the smooth dark chocolate coating. This bake is more proof of the delightful pairing of sweet and salty that is very crave-able. Chocolate chips in the batter add to the experience making this Bronut delicious with a scoop of ice cream.
This creation is the most inventive, in my opinion. It is not often that we see two classics: chocolate brownies and lemon and poppyseed cake together in the same bite. This is exactly what Emma has achieved. A really fudgy chocolate base is lightened with a zingy lemony white chocolate coating that has a beautiful crunch thanks to the poppyseeds. A really refreshing delight.
Could Soul Vegan’s flavour be any more on trend right now? With Autumn here and the weather cooling down, all everyone is talking about is pumpkin. These vibrant orange coated Bronuts are the perfect autumnal treat. A cake-y brownie base topped with a thick layer of naturally sweetened pumpkin laced with dark drizzles of sweet treacle, this Bronut has a strong flavour and was definitely a treat not a trick.
So, which one was my favourite? It would be a very hard decision but it is probably a toss-up between the Lemon and Poppyseed with white chocolate and the Pumpkin and Treacle chocolate Bronut because of their originality.
I am constantly in awe and wonder at the beauty of Soul Vegan bakes and I cannot wait to see (and hopefully taste) all the wonderful creations to come.
