So in my continuing effort to veganelize my coworkers, I need a birthday cake for my boss. She LOVED the lemon pound cake and said it was, hands down, her favorite thing I'd made so far. Someone suggested I see about making it a bundt cake for her birthday this Monday.
Now, when I took it to work, it was the first one I'd made and it was just unbelievably perfect - extremely moist and sweet and buttery. Perfect. I made it again the next day, with the exact same ingredients, and it didn't come out nearly as well. It took a lot longer to bake and the texture was a little funky. It tasted great but it wasn't perfect. So I know it can be kind of a touchy recipe.
I can only get my hands on Whole Soy's lemon yogurt so it'll have to be that, if it matters.
So, has anyone tried making it a bundt cake? What if I tried baking it in a regular cake pan? Would I need to double the recipe and cook it longer? Thoughts, suggestions?
i am taking my sweetheart on a surprise day at Walden Pond. I would like to keep a theme, and make picnic food that is old-timey/ thoreau-esque and vegan. i have had very little luck researching what kind of stuff thoreau ate, only that he ate a lot of beans, which do not strike me as a very romantic food. the entries in the picnic memories all seem pretty modern. an important point is that it be reasonably portable- much of the old time type food i've found does not lend itself well to traveling. so basically, i'm seeking old-fashioned(like 1800s) portable food that is vegan.
Thanks a lot! I know it's a long shot.
p.s. to offer an idea, before i thought i might want a theme was going to make springrolls with rice wrappers, marinated tofu, vermicelli and other tasty things; bring cherries; and for dessert, have vegan brownies cut into hearts with a cookie cutter. ^_^ actually, i might stick with the cherries and brownies. need a main course though.
I made this last night and it was delicious, easy and awesome
-2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
-1 1/2 tsp cinnemon
-1 tbsp brown sugar
-1/2 cup corn oil
-a few dashed chipotle hot sauce
I just mixed together the oil, hot sauce + seasonings, made a loooong foil pack, put in the potatoes and topped with the oil mixture. I preceded to cook on the grill for 1 hour. Deliciousness! Followed by fruit kabobs....
