First, I’d like to mention that today in my analytics, one of the keywords that led someone to my blog was “Eggwhite Gasoline Pictures Napalm”. Man oh man, people sure are searching bizarro things on this intermaphone these days!
But anyway, on to the important things. Desserts.
What kind of birthday cake, dear readers, does one make for a wonderful yogi-to-be? This is exactly the question I asked myself last week. Luckily, said wonderful yogi-to-be (ahem…my lovely friend Jacque), had a birthday cake request. This is what i like to hear! It’s a lot easier than someone saying they don’t care what kind of cake you make them.
Well, If you own “The Joy of Vegan Baking” (which you really should), you will find a recipe for a “Light Lemon Bundt Cake”. So…almost there. I tweeked the recipe in the tiniest way, and also added poppyseeds, of course. I also like the fact that the recipe uses maple syrup instead of sugar.
However, I used sugar in the frosting. Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting, which I free-styled. You know, normal frosting ingredients plus tofutti vegan cream cheese!
The Cake turned out amazingly. Seriously, i loved it, Jacque loved it. Definitely worth making again. If you use the recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking, however, be sure to double the recipe…because it makes less than you would expect (if your bundt pan is on the large side, like mine is!). My cake turned out pretty small, so I made a second batch and turned it into cupcakes. yum!
here’s to lemons and gasoline! ha!
