Vegan baking

Even though I can no longer call myself a vegetarian I still eat without animal products for most of the week. When we do eat meat it is only from a good source and that usually also means it is more expensive. That is fine, we just eat it on occasion and not every day. Sometimes not even every week.

That works fine for me and even Tom is on board with it. Not using any eggs is a bit more difficult I find. Especially when it comes to baking. I am so used to putting eggs in cakes that it is a bit hard to think outside of that particular box. So time to test some vegan baking-things… 🙂

And wow this was a big hit! The recipe is from a Dutch book called Easy Vegan with Julie. I think Julie actually blogs in English so maybe you can find more delicious recipes on her site so have a look there. I just saw that her book will also be out in English soon so have a look. I love the book!

These little babies are glutenfree, dairy free and just plain delicious. I was quite surprised I have to say as a lot of times when I tried to bake something without eggs it ended up being dry and unappealing but these are really good. Again, even Tom thought they were delicious.

Julie used pears in her recipe and I changed that for apples as I had some that needed consuming badly. But obviously both work fine. Try for yourself!
