I am posting some recipes I have made recently with just a picture and a title; please tell me which ones you would like to see on the blog. You are most certainly allowed to say "All of the above" : ) PS: I'm only posting the good ones! I've had some major flops recently : / PPS: New poll on the right! I would love it if you participated.
A. Zucchini Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
B. Buffalo Tofu Mac N' Cheez
C. Apple Streusel Cake in a Jar
D. Gingerbread Cupcakes with Pumpkin Pie Filling and 2 different frostings
Honestly...these weren't horrible, but I wouldn't make them again. Maybe it's because I couldn't follow the recipe exactly (I don't have all purpose flour of all things! fail.), or the fact that nothing will ever compare to the cute family-owned donut shop I used to go to in Pleasanton. Annnnd they're not that great for you anyways. I'm looking for a source of energy to get me through the morning, and these would just make me crash.
However, they are still a great alternative to regular donuts: all fried and nasty and made with animal products. They're also much lower in calories! I have provided the recipe as I made these donuts...however I would suggest you click on the link below the title and follow those instructions! The only thing I still don't know about is the egg replacer...my recipe came out much runnier than hers (thus the need for extra flour). Try using Ener-G and see if that works.
Sorry this isn't the most hyped up post...but I have to be honest and I promised I would give you guys donuts!
That day has finally arrived lovies...the day I present to you the best cinnamon rolls I can come up with. Let me tell you they are divine. Because it took me so long to get them to you and 4 tries to get them right, I have also included 4 different (and all wonderful) icing recipes!
Whether it be too much butter, not enough cinnamon, the wrong kind of flour...you name it, I wasn't satisfied with it. I'm only bringing you the best...but so they don't totally go to waste, here are a few snapshots of my failed attempts:
Attempt #1: too dry because I used whole wheat flour
Attempt #2: Not enough cinnamon...
...I wonder where it all went, oh yeah! All over my counter.
My third attempt should have been successful but I accidentally grabbed the whole wheat flour again and couldn't be sure if the final changes would make for a successful cinnamon roll. I also baked them in a muffin tin which I don't recommend.
These treats are far from healthy, but a fantastic, vegan baked good you should indulge in every once in a while. I'm sure you deserve it! So without further ado...here's the final, beautiful, melt in your mouth product!
