i have some pictures of the crumb cake, which i'll put behind a cut. the cake itself, i thought (and so did a couple of my friends), was pretty good. not amazing, but good. the "crumbs" on top were made of unbleached flour, sugar and vegan shortening. they did not become nice crispy crumb things like i expected. it was powdery, and it still is. so i put it under the broiler for a few minutes to see if that would help it crisp up but i didn't. (maybe if i had put more shortening it would've been fine? i don't know.)
ANYWAY... i'd like to continue experimenting with vegan desserts (i'm vegetarian). so hopefully i find some yummy things. :) i'm sure that some recipes in sinfully vegan are fine, and with some modification they could possibly all be fine. but i don't want to have to make everything twice in order to find out what it's supposed to taste like. i like when i can actually trust recipes!
the "crumbly" or powdery looking bit on the top i just brush off before i eat any of this.
