Hello hello there! Welcome to the April roundup for Sweet New Zealand. This is a link party of sweetness and deliciousness was created by blogger and food writer Alessandra Zecchini. It’s an awesome way to discover and connect with other New Zealand food bloggers. 

Okiedokies! Let’s begin.

First up,  Sweet NZ’s founder Alessandra made some awesome Vegan and Gluten Free Chocolate Pudding. It’s her homemade version of the awesome puddings you can get from organic-vegetarian stores. Sounds good!

Sue from Couscous & Consciousness made a British classic Chocolate and Dark Cherry Jam Roly Poly that rekindled memories for her. Did you know that a roly poly was traditionally steamed in an old shirt sleeve so it was called “dead man’s arm?”. I learnt interesting things from Sue’s post, check it out.

Arfi from HomemadeS took the beautiful photo below of the Punklicious Vanilla Bean Cupcakes she made. Punklicious without eggs and dairy. Punklicious indeed.

Amanda from Move Love Eat made healthy Coconut Pancakes topped with whipped peanut butter topping. Mmm… sounds tempting.  I love pancakes and might try this for a yummy weekend breakfast.

Not forgetting sweets and cute desserts for the easter celebrations that happened during April, Jo from Seven Green Apples made a deliciously moist Spiced Chocolate and Apple Cake with mini easter eggs. It’s so cute and I’m curious to try the chocolate yoghurt icing method. Mmmm….
