After trying some recipes from The Vegan Table, also by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, and eating some of the most delectable meals I've ever prepared in my 20 years of veganism, I knew The Joy of Vegan Baking would be good. I mean, seriously, wow. And there really aren't many unusual ingredients, either, so most of the time I can use what's at hand. Yet, the end result is absolutely mind-blowing amazing. Vegan scones actually tasting better than non-vegan scones?? Yes. They were so good I ate almost the entire recipe worth in one day and didn't regret it, they were THAT good. While I haven't made a ton of recipes yet, they have all been delicious, and like The Vegan Table, I'm sure they will all be incredibly tasty. After buying a couple of vegan dessert cookbooks and being a little disappointed (some really good recipes, but just as many mediocre ones), I'm thrilled with this cookbook. Thank you Colleen Patrick-Goudreau for making every recipe delicious and amazing!
with the results. It didn't have that odd twist or sacrifice for being the 'vegan' version. I've been trying
plenty of vegan recipes lately, both from cookbooks and online. Many have been disappointing (granted I wasn't
much of a cook pre-veganism) but I have been truly pleased with the results from the recipes in this cookbook.
The chocolate chip cookie recipe is exactly the one I have used for years with Vegan products instead.
This book is easy, nice pics. You can get the ingredients easy. I love this book! I highly recommend it!
It shipped quick. I recommend the seller!
I'm the proud owner of about a dozen vegan cookbooks. My usual routine when a new one arrives is to flip through the recipes and mark the corners of the handful of pages with recipes that look yummy and/or look like something I can accomplish without my kitchen looking like I just catered a wedding. With The Joy of Vegan Baking, I've got more creased pages than I care to count.
Breads, pancakes, muffins, and of course cookies, brownies, cakes and smoothies are all deliciously represented here, often accompanied by mouthwateringly beautiful photos. And as if that wasn't enough, the author has included dozens and dozens of vegan baking tips, as well as numerous vegan alternatives to use in the place of eggs, milk, and butter in just about any baking recipe.
Most importantly of all, it's how it tastes that counts, and it's especially important when sharing vegan food with those who picture vegans as full-time lettuce and carrot eaters. I can't wait to make and share these recipes with those close to me. There's no doubt that I'll be hearing a lot of every vegan's favorite phrase: "Are you sure this is vegan?"
Yes, yes I am, but it'll be my little secret that I'm just as surprised as they are.
Another thing I really like about the book is that it includes short educational sections about the negative aspects of dairy and egg production, and on good baking techniques.
