Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Kris Holechek grew up in her grandmother’s kitchen, absorbing every flavor and technique until she was able to perfect her grandmother’s favorite baking recipes. When she became vegan, Kris learned to create those old family favorites and exciting new baked treats without using any animal products. 

More About the Author

Kris Holechek Peters has been baking since she was old enough to make a proper mess. Taught by her great-grandmothers and aunt, the joy of providing excellent baked goods to her loved ones was always her mission and the switch to a vegan lifestyle did not stop that. Rather, it opened up a whole new world, one where the adaptation of old family recipes and the creation of new ones became both a game and a goal- a tasty, tasty goal.

When not covered in dough and melted chocolate, Kris lives in the Midwest with her kitties and enjoys a dedicated yoga practice, studying linguistics, food science and indulging in really good espresso.

She has a knack for creating delicious recipes that you will make again and again.

Simply delicious and I love how the author's recipes are so outside the box..... The book is beautiful with glossy pages and full size color pictures for every recipe.

I would highly recommend this to households that have both vegan and non-vegan eaters, as you won't know the difference!

I love Kris Holecheck's other books but this one takes the cake! (pun totally intended) While I'm not vegan, or even vegetarian, the recipes in this book are easy to follow and the results are delicious. Admittedly I've used some of these recipes on my family without their prior knowledge of the ingredients and when I told them the cake they ate was vegan nobody could believe it. I think the thing I enjoy most in this book is that Kris gives you alternatives. With every recipe there are tips; if you're gluten free do this, if you don't have this type of flour try a combination of this and this. This cook book has full page pictures so you know what your final product should look like. :)
Overall I'd say this is one of the best cake books I own and every holiday and birthday will be celebrated around one of these cakes.

So, I got the cookbook yesterday and also someone gave me a slow cooker (ie. crockpot). I thumbed through the book and found that there were cake recipes for slow cookers. Intrigued, I decided to make the "Slow as Apple Pie Cake". Now, I am a chocolate person and any chocolate cake would be good for me...so I made the apple cake..and WOW! It was amazing! Simply delicious and I love how the author's recipes are so outside the box.....
The book is beautiful with glossy pages and full size color pictures for every recipe. I can't wait to bake more of her recipes. I highly recommend this book. It is really neat (and as a side note, I have her first book as well--which I love, but always felt needed photos. This one is just perfect!!!)

This is a really beautiful cookbook with lots of wonderful pictures. I have only made 2 of the recipes so far and all I can say is YUM! I made the pineapple upside down cake and the butter cream frosting and snicker doodle cake. Both cakes were so moist and like heaven in my mouth. My husband and kids loved them! I shared the pineapple upside down cake with the neighbors that are in love with Paula Deen.....they loved it too! I can't wait to make more this weekend. There is advice and recipes for gluten free cakes, egg and dairy replacement and pantry staples for baking. Also, a nice section on trouble shooting any problems and a section on cake decorating.
I prefer to use almond milk in the recipes because soy milk in the past has made my cakes turn out more like a muffin consistency.

...can't wait that's true for any of the other cookbooks I own!
This book has some extremely helpful tips and tricks (why did my cake have a dome top? Why did it sink? What can I substitute for bananas/soymilk/eggs/whatever?) to make it less intimidating to jump into cake-baking. I have made a few so far-- the banana fudge striped cake stands out, as does the tasty plum coffee cake. I didn't have great success with the rice cooker chocolate cake, but I think that was my fault as I probably didn't grease the pan well enough. Yeah, I was scraping out those remains for eons. That doesn't deter from my 5-star review, though, because this book is great and turns any day into a celebration.

This is a must-have cookbook. There are varying levels of difficulty and cakes for all occasions. I have been vegan for about a year, but vegetarian before that for about 6 years. Even when I was "just" vegetarian, I did vegan baking almost exclusively. My husband and stepkids are vegetarian but the rest of our families are hearty omnivores. I mention this because whenever I host a family gathering I bake vegan, and if we go to another relatives house I now bring my own vegan treat. I have now converted my extended family to vegan baking! On one of the last birthday parties, one of the biggest meat-eaters of the family excitedly asked if I had made one of the cakes from this book again (I had not, I was making vegan beignets). I used to make "regular" cakes for most of the group and some vegan baking for myself and anyone who liked it and now I only bake vegan as it seems my family prefers that! I was a very experienced baker before, so I would like to think it is not because of the taste that they stopped eating my "regular" baking ;-)

Anyway, this is a great book to have (I would also suggest "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World) by Isa & Terry (or really any of their cookbooks) and there are some recipes that can be made in a rice cooker in a short time - I will be making one myself tonight!

As a former vegan married to a non-vegan, when I prepare anything vegan I am most conscientious of taste and flavor. Desserts are admittedly easier (who doesn't like dessert), but still can be a challenge. Kris Holechek's newest book meets that challenge and exceeds expectations. The first recipe I tried was her Spiced Crumb Cake for weekend breakfast. My family was very impressed. So impressed that we decided to try the Chocolate Crumb Cake a few days later. Amazing. My toddlers, notorious non-eaters, devoured the Nutty 'Nana Snack Cake. I have been baking for almost thirty years and was still impressed by so many of these wonderful cakes. From the classic Dad is Great Chocolate Cake to the more sophisticated Almond Mocha Cake. Even better for those short on time is the No-Bake Cake sections. The Black Forest Crock Cake was a huge hit and so easy. Of course the book also includes a whole section of wonderful frostings and fillings. This is the third book I have on my shelf by this wonderful and talented author. I can't wait to see what she is cooking up next.
