Plant-Based Sicilian Bakery Launches Vegan Cannoli


1 Minutes Read

Plant-based Sicilian bakery Dolcetta has launched a range of vegan cannoli – claiming it to be ‘indistinguishable from the original’.

The London-based eatery, which also offers vegan biscotti and cupcakes, adapted the cannoli to not include eggs or dairy using an old family recipe.

Priced at £30 for a box of nine, the vegan treats can be delivered to central London postcodes, and come in the flavors: pistachio, chocolate, hazelnut and chocolate, chocolate and citrus, hazelnut, pistachio and chocolate, hazelnut and citrus, and pistachio and citrus.

The cannoli are dipped in dairy-free chocolate, filled with sweet ricotta, and topped with a sprinkling of candied peel, nuts or chocolate chips.

‘The holy grail’

In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Lexi Galli, Founder of Dolcetta, said: “To me, mastering a Vegan Cannoli was the holy grail and I had put it off for such a long time as it is one of the most technically difficult pastries to get right, even before trying to ‘veganize’ it, but celebrations were never the same without them so I got baking!

“After many many trials (and many many errors!) I succeeded and the results are truly impressive. My family has actually said they prefer the Dolcetta vegan cannoli to my original Sicilian family recipe and I tend to agree.”

Dolcetta is located on 118-122 Great Portland Street, London
