Making sweet foods makes me feel good. Sharing and eating them is quite nice too!
Here are a few sweet things that have been produced in our kitchen lately.
Fluffy White Cupcakes
Cupcakes put a smile on everyone's face, don't they? I'm usually a Vegan Cupcake Takes Over the World girl, but I also love these vanilla cupcakes from Vegan Lunch Box. The coconut extract really adds something special to these.
Lemon Olive Oil Cake
I had a few lemons to use up so I decided to make this cake from Chef Chloe. I wanted to take a photo of this cake sliced up, perhaps with a bit of icing sugar sprinkled on. But the cake disappeared too fast. That's how good it was. I haven't baked with olive oil much before, but it was just divine in this cake.
Mexican Wedding Cookies
These are delicate, melt in your mouth cookies from The Joy of Vegan Baking. They make perfect gifts. The recipe is also here online. I used a combination of pecans and walnuts.
Crepes with lemon and sugar
Growing up, we were not a pancake household. We were a crepe household. We ate them with lemon and sugar or cocoa and sugar. This time I tried the crepe recipe from Veganomicon. They contain that magical chickpea flour. These are definitely the best vegan crepes I've made - thin and delicious!
This recipe from Vegie Head is simple and very creamy. It is made with fresh strawberries, dates, avocado, chia seeds and coconut cream. Lexie, now 9 months old, enjoyed it too!
Chocolate Date Balls
These chocolate date balls from Veggieful are a yummy and healthy quick treat to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Lemon Macadamia Bars
These bars are based on this recipe from Cupcake Kitteh. They are so delicious and easy to make - no need to buy expensive raw bars!
