Simply Stunning Vegan Desserts
If you're lactose intolerant, avoiding cholesterol, limiting saturated fat, or simply crave sweets, prepare to indulge. Author Sharon Valencik demystifies the art of vegan baking, and offers over 130 recipes for decadent cakes, scrumptious cookies, creamy cheesecakes and pies, velvety mousses, puddings, and crèmes and other luscious treats—all accompanied by mouth-watering photographs that provide inspiration and are a feast for the eyes. These desserts capture the same delicious flavors and textures of traditional favorites. Because they do not contain animal products, they are cholesterol-free, have little saturated fat and leave a small ecological footprint.
For the inexperienced baker and busy moms, these recipes are uncomplicated to make. Using everyday ingredients that can be found in a supermarket, clear instructions and expert tips show how to create egg-less cakes that rise, rich, creamy fillings without milk or cream, and cookies that have rich flavor and moist texture without the use of butter. Some of the recipes that will amaze guests and delight families include Midnight Cake with Chocolate Frosting, Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches, Coconut Tiramisu, Mixed Berry Cheesecake, Gingerbread Guys, Chocolate Mousse, Lemon Berry Tart, Fudgy Chip Cookies, Cappuccino Custard, Pudding Parfaits, and Three-layer Cheesecake Bars.
