Soul Cakes for Samhain

23 Oct 2019 13:00:00 | Author: Caryl


Soul Cakes are traditionally baked to celebrate Samhain, a time to reconnect with our ancestors and to honour those who have passed.

This recipe is my own vegan version and makes approx. 16 small cookies.


Soul Cakes for Samhain

Soul Cakes for Samhain

  • 1 cup (140g) flour - I used half spelt flour and half plain white flour
  • 3/4 (86g) cup ground almonds
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cacao powder (or cocoa)
  • 1/2 (100g) cup soft brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 flax egg (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil - melted (OR 1/4 cup vegan butter - melted)
  • 1 tbsp (16g) orange juice

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.  Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the flax egg, coconut oil and orange juice and stir well.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until well combined and the dough starts to form into a ball.
  5. Split the ball in half and repeat until there are 16 small balls.  Place on baking tray and flatten each one slightly, leaving a little room for them to spread.
  6. Bake for approx. 25 mins, or lightly brown.
  7. Cool on a wire tray.

  • A flax egg is made by mixing 1 tbs of flax seeds with 3 tbs of water.  You put it aside for about 15 mins and it becomes a gel-like mixture that makes a great egg replacement.
