I thought it was going to come out badly because I didn't have silken tofu for egg replacement, so I used firm tofu, and blended the hell out of it. It actually came out better than last time, when I used silken tofu and most of the banana sunk to the bottom of the bread. So I've included firm instead of silken. That, and I accidentally had it on 300 instead of 350 for the first half hour. Oops.
Also, I didn't have any walnuts. Hence "Banana Cherry Almond Bread" was born. I was skeptical about the combination, but it came out lovely.
I also made some Banana Oatmeal Chocolate chip cookies using this recipe http://www.boutell.com/vegetarian/cookies.html (it says not to grease the pans... grease them anyways!)
But the banana bread stands out by far. I've never shared the recipe, and my mom would kill me, but hey...
So, without further ado ( Awesome Supertastic Banana Cherry Almond BreadCollapse )
I'm just wondering if anyone here has made the mucho margarita cupcakes from VCTOTW. I want to make these for a friend who is turning 21 and I'm wondering if they're any good! I've tried a lot of the recipes so far and some of them have been hits, others not so much. I'd hate for my friend to not like these!!
Also, is it possible to make a double batch and freeze some? I wonder how well they'd reheat. Thoughts?
and i used the pan bread recipe from 'soy not oi',
2 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
'enough water to make a soft dough that holds itself together'
i kneaded it til 3-5 minutes. i deep fried it in about 1/4 inches of oil in the pan, in pieces that were about 1/4 inch thickness, just like it said.
i then sprinkled sesame seeds on top.
and it came out well, except that it wasn't cooked all the way on the inside. has anyone here ever tried making pan bread before? what did i do wrong? its such a simple, cheap recipe to do, theres gotta be a way to do it correctly!
the parts that did somehow worked, i made into little sandwiches with cucumber, shredded carrots, and cilantro, if it helps at all.
( Vegan Tomato/Pasta SauceCollapse )
for one person:
juice of two oranges (whatever you want, I used navel for no seeds)
handful of coursely chopped cilantro
soy sauce to taste
pepper to taste
green onions (I used 1 stalk chopped)
marinade at least 24 hours to get the cilantro and orange taste to really set in. it was prob the best marinade i've made for myself :]
The recipe I was going to use is this one:
1 cup soy milk (plain or vanilla)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
2 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract (you can add more if you want)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
(I think it's from vegweb.com)
