what desserts have you prepared that have impressed non-vegans most ? as in invoking the i-cant-believe-this-is-vegan comments. i want to take something like magic with me to christmas this year. im looking for a cookie or cupcake recipe specifically, though any recipe, if it's a champ, will do.
i've been watching the community for a while but haven't ever posted. you guys put out some really great stuff here - thanks for all of the ideas you have all given me! i love everything about vegan cooking, but i mostly enjoy making my own creations and seeing what works. (AND, i plan to exhaust every possibility of making a suitable cheese substitute until i find one - if it's the last thing i do...)
anyhow, over the last few days i haven't really had the chance to make my own creations for lack of time/desire to utilize things that may soon go bad. instead, i just wanted to add my thoughts to a couple of recipes that my friends and i tried over the week and what worked/didn't work about them:
Tomorrow morning I'm making the "fronch" toast from VWAV for my mom's birthday. I bought a can of whole apricots in syrup to go with it, but I don't really know what to do with them. Besides the normal things (brown sugar, butter, etc) I've got: rice milk soy creamer maple syrup sparkling apple cider pecans walnuts almonds soy nog raisings (regular and baking)
I was thinking about cooking them down with some raisins and pecans and using that as a topping, but I'm a disaster in the kitchen when I don't have directions or outside opinion. Please help!
