Vegan Quick Bread Recipes
Written by Mattie     5
Vegan Fruit Sweetened Banana Bread“See those bananas over there?”, I asked, tilting my head towards the end of the aisle at the health food store. “I’ll buy fifteen of ‘em for half price”, I suggested confidently. The cashier paused for a moment, not knowing whether to believe me. Why would anyone want to buy bananas that were almost more suitable for the compost bin than the kitchen for any price? “Sure”, he sighed. He knew they were garbage unless I took them in. I laughed to myself when I realized how excited I was to buy bananas that most people wouldn’t even think of eating. I started to feel bad about not liberating the others but I had to get home; there was work to do! How cool would it be to peel the bananas, purée them and slow cook them into a thick syrup to use as a base for fruit sweetened banana bread? Finally, something to do with all those bananas laying around in your freezer!

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Spiced IcingWe had a potluck at work on Friday and I wanted to impress. I knew I wanted to work with pumpkin but I wasn’t sure what to bake! After much research I decided on Vegan Pumpkin Cupcakes with a Spiced “Cream Cheese” Frosting. I tested the cakes a few days before using whole wheat flour… My cupcakes turned into MUFFINS! Oh no! Good thing I had enough regular flour to bake with. When I baked the dozen for work I was so proud. My cakes rose! (Something that is very hard for vegan treats to do). The cream cheese frosting was a tad difficult for me, iI ended up using what felt like a ton of powdered sugar to help it set, but it turned out perfect. Ready to celebrate the holidays?

Vegan Sauce Recipes

Quick ApplesauceHave you ever gone apple picking and brought back pounds of fresh apples with high aspirations only to watch helplessly as your prized stock slowly breaks down as you're just too busy to commit to making all the Apple Pies, Apple TurnoversApple Cider Doughnuts and Apple Strudel? This happened to me recently and as I was opening the compost bin of shame my friend Dan mentioned, "you know, my Mom uses the soft apples for apple sauce and it comes out awesome!" This sounded really interesting to me but I still didn't have time. So why not combine these soft apples with this lack of time and make a quick and easy applesauce?

Vegan Candy Recipes

Crystallized GingerCrystallized ginger is somewhat of a magical candy from nature usually made from just ginger, sugar and a little heat to bring the two together. It seems there are almost as many crystallized ginger recipes as there are ginger pieces. After doing extensive testing I learned that the key to successful crystallized ginger boils down (pun intended) to three main things:

Introducing Ask a Vegan BakerDuring the last few years running Veganbaking.net I've had many great conversations with passionate bakers from around the world. It's so great to connect on the baking level and realize that through all those miles and cultural variations we still strive to push vegan baking - and thus baking in general - forward while having fun doing it. For me, running Veganbaking.net is partly a way to go on my own quest to really make the best tasting food I possibly can and to have the best understanding of why it's happening on the food science level. But it's also a way to allow other vegan bakers around the world to connect and gain the knowledge and inspiration to passionately make great food. 

I'm constantly brainstorming to find ways to engage vegan bakers so they can share the knowledge they need to reach their goals. Over the years I've traded many baking tips with other bakers behind the scenes and I'm realizing that this really deserves a public forum. This is why I'm now re-launching part the Forum as a section of Veganbaking.net called Ask a Vegan Baker.

Ask a Vegan Baker is the place to reach out and ask the community your vegan baking questions. Why isn't your cake rising? Why are your cookies browning too fast and sticking to the cookie sheet? What are the best methods to temper chocolate for that big chocolate making fest you have coming up? Ask a Vegan Baker is also the place to answer these questions for other bakers so you can do your part to promote vegan baking. Remember that one afternoon you spent learning the in and outs of caramel? It wasn't all for naught! You know possess the knowledge to help someone out who hasn't tackled caramel yet. Ask a Vegan Baker should smooth out the learning curve for new bakers and make connecting and coming up with new, tasty eats ultimately more fun. So enjoy and check it out!

Vegan Cookie Recipes

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip CookieFor me, the ultimate cookie is crispy on the outside, yielding to a satisfying chew on the inside. This should not be confused with just a soft cookie. It should resist your bite a little and take a few moments to break down in your mouth as it provides bust of flavor with every chew. In contrast, soft cookies tend to be great on the first bite and disintegrate into nothingness soon after, often leaving you feel like you’re chewing on sweet dust. I’m a huge fan of peanut butter but I find the texture of peanut butter cookies to too often fall into the soft-only or even worse, the crumbly camp. If you scale back on their precious peanut butter they retain their chewy qualities but also quickly turn into regular cookies with just a hint of peanut butter flavor. I set out to find the optimum combination of decadent chewiness while keeping a peanut butter punch as intense as possible (and tossing in chocolate chips for good measure). This tightrope walk is extremely dangerous in that it causes you to eat way too many test cookies as you perfect your recipe.

Your Vegan Baking Day Guide - What to Bake and How to ImpressThe very first Vegan Baking Day on Friday, September 30th is rapidly approaching but don't let panic set in just yet- It can be difficult to decide what to bake (or prepare raw) when preparing to share your favorite foods. Luckily, I've got you covered with some tips to make this special day as stress-free and fun as possible. A little planning beforehand will make your food easier to present with maximum impact. This guide applies to vegan bake sales too!

Choose desserts that are portable

Since you'll likely be preparing your desserts at home and bringing them somewhere else, prepare desserts that are somewhat firm and not crumbly. This would not be the ideal time to showcase your favorite cheesecake or cobbler. Dense recipes like fugde, blondies, and most types of cookies are ideal because they can be packed into freezer bags or placed into plastic food storage containers for easy transport. Since the desserts are somewhat firm, they'll make it there in one piece.

Vegan Sponge Cake Recipes
Written by HildaJorgensen     10
A recipe from Triumph of the Lentil: Soy-Free Vegan Wholefoods for all Appetites. Don’t be fooled by the zucchini in the title. This is actually a decadent tasting vegan mud cake. Made in a bundt pan it is thin and crispy on the outside and moist and dense on the inside, so much that it doesn’t need any icing or accompaniments. To make it a bit fancier-looking you could drizzle it with melted vegan chocolate or icing. This mixture also makes delicious muffins, making 24 medium sized ones.

Vegan Pastry Recipes

Kimchi Puff Pastry with Shiitake Mushrooms and Pine NutsI’m a huge fan of kimchi because it adds a fascinating crunch and a savory spicy flavor to whatever you pair it with. It seems as if kimchi is one of those foods that becomes more than the sum of its parts after it ferments to perfection. Napa cabbage provides the crunch but also is rich in glutamates, the compounds that are responsible for savory favors, otherwise known as umami. There had to be a reason why napa cabbage is always part of kimchi!
 
Recently I incorporated kimchi into vegan butter for an increased depth of flavor. The kimchi flavor was less apparent but the butter had a complex flavor unlike anything I’ve tasted. What if I made a puff pastry out of Kimchi Vegan Butter that was designed to deliver a one-two punch of flaky butteriness and savory flavors that even the most die hard meat eaters would love? The result is Kimchi Puff Pastry with Shiitake Mushrooms and Toasted Pine Nuts. This recipe may look a little daunting but it’s easy if you split it into several nights and refrigerate it as you go. I usually make the Kimchi Vegan Butter and mushrooms one night, prepare the puff pastry and give it a turn or two on the second night and prepare and bake them on the third night.

Vegan Ice Cream Recipes

Ginger Snap Cookie Ice CreamTrying cake batter ice cream recently I was intrigued of the concept of blending two completely different types of desserts. I loved how the ice cream takes on the unexpected flavor of cake batter but still has the consistency of ice cream. What could I get away with in an attempt to blend flavors and textures that would contrast but also compliment each other? I have a flavor experience burned in my memory from some point in my life where I had vanilla ice cream oozing over a ginger snap cookie. I realized that this was what I must try. Should I grind the ginger snaps and steep them in non-dairy milk or just blend them in the ice cream recipe before processing in the ice cream maker? Would I still need to add the same ratios of ingredients as my Vanilla Ice Cream recipe?
