Charming Lemon Cake + Vegan Glaze

Imagine this: a totally vegan cake that is sweet but not too sweet, lemony but not sour, with a light texture and a good crumb. Am I describing a dream I once had? Some sort of illusion that came to me in this perpetual summer heat wave? While you’re right that all my dreams are […]

Vegan Vanilla Icing

Don’t go running away at the title – this icing is anything but gross. It’s a sweet, rich, and workable icing that you can use for cakes, cookies, or anything else you might be decorating.

Maybe you’re thinking, sure, but I bet it’s gross cake. Really oily, or dry, or something weird. Right? Wrong! […]

Sweet Peach Compote

I had a moment of real disappointment last summer when I bought a pint of beautiful, fuzzy, lovely peaches at the grocery store only to take them home and find them rock hard. Yes, probably my fault for not checking them before I bought them. But I cringe at smushing fruit in the grocery store […]
