I couldn't find that recipe in the book..is it called a different name or anything?
« Reply #4 on: May 04, 2004 03:14:04 PM »

I have been hoping to come across someone who has this book so I could ask a couple of questions - hope you don't mind!

does it use a lot of liquid sweeteners?  like maple syrup and rice syrup and corn syrup (I'm sure you get the picture, sorry).  and does it use much sugar-type stuff?

the reason I'm asking is that maple syrup etc. is really really expensive where I live (it doesn't grow here) and I want to get that book but I don't want to end up with another vegan cookbook that I can't really use...

Yes, a lot of the recipes call for a lot of maple syrup.  I understand, I live in Texas, there aren't any maple syrup farms near me!! Actually I bought this book after going vegan, and I love desserts so I tried a few recipes.  Actually both recipes I made weren't any good, so my advice would be to hold off on buying this book unless you find it for really cheap.  Are you looking for a cookbook for just vegan desserts or just a vegan cookbook.  If you want a vegan cookbook and you don't have them already, I highly highly recommend How it All Vegan and Garden of Vegan by Sarah Kramer and Tanya Barnard.  I've made a lt of breads and desserts from those books and they always come out delicious.

I'm sorry if I'm mistaken but are you the same Steph who runs the Pleasant Unicorn distro & the Cheap Vegan Zine? Again If your not who I think you are, All Apologies.

GummiSteph you kick ass.  thanks for saving me some money there.

I am vegan, and I love desserts, and I am addicted to cookbooks.  (do I sound like I'm in AA or something?)  and while I understand the maple syrup thing I think that if I'm having a piece of cake I don't really care if it's sugar or what (no bone char, though, thanks).

yay for vegan craft ladies (and gentlemen)!!!

Hey, Forevr Bee, I'm not the Steph you are thinking of, but if it helps, I wish I owned a cool business!  Hehe, anyways, no need to apologize for asking if I'm someone you know.  Starmeg- I'm also a vegan addicted to desserts and baking!  Go us!  Maybe there should be an AA for people like me who are addicted to chocolate (vegan chocolate of course...teehee) Tongue  Where do you live?  You should sooo check out the message boards at www.GoVegan.net if you haven't already.  Go to the website and then click on "chatroom" on the left side of the screen, although its a message board, not a chatroom.  Anyway, hope to see you there, and if not you should e-mail me! I'd love to have a crafty vegan dessert makin' pen pal!

I'm not really a vegan (I consider myself vegiatarian although I do eat some forms of meat), but I do like to experiment with what I eat & latley i've bought a lot of "vegan things & tried new things for the first time, like seitan the other day (I sware it tastes just like sausage!).

Forevr Bee- Thats awesome that you are willing to try new things! My dad won't try anything that he knows has tofu in it.  Of course I have him taste stuff and omit the fact that there is tofu in it, but he doesn't need to know that Wink I have sooo been wanting to try seitan, I've never had it!  I have a recipe to make it from scratch, which is a lot cheaper than buying it.  I have a dream of making awesome General Tso's Seitan.  Would it work in a chicken recipe, or does it really taste a lot like sausage?

My dad's the same way with anything!!!The brand of Seitan I'd purchased from a local Heath Food store is called White Wave or something like that. But I think that other brands ( & Homemade too) have different tastes. I've however seen recipes invoving Seitan as a replacement for chicken & Pork.

This has only to do with Vegan and not the specific cookbook. But I thought I'd share this great recipe I made last night for the first time. These brownies were really moist and tasty. I'd totally make them again.

Blueberry Brownies
Add some fresh summer berries to an old favorite. What a delicious difference!

1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup unbleached white flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8-inch square baking pan. In a medium mixing bowl, combine applesauce, sugar, and vanilla.
In another bowl, whisk together flours, cocoa, baking powder, soda, and salt. Make a well in the center and add wet ingredients; mix until just combined. Gently fold in walnuts and blueberries. Spread mixture into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until center is firm and not sticky. Let cool completely before slicing.

Makes 16 brownies.

Thanks for the recipe! I love brownies...drool.... By the way, I made homemade seitan last weekend and it was really really easy, plus the ingredients to make a ton of seitan only cost about 2 dollars.  I used some of the seitan to make General Tso's Seitan, and OH MY GOD, it was delicious.  General Tso's is my all time favorite chicken dish so I was thrilled that I could replicate it.  Let me know if anyone wants the recipe.
