Mmmm. Cake. Requested this from the library thinking I'd create a birthday treat for myself - as well as to share :-) - but alas it arrived just afterwards by which time I was all sugared out. Now I have to return it since it was a 2 week loan. Let me just say however that the recipes look spectacular! Each recipe has a full color photo that fills an entire page (not that common in most of the vegan cook cooks I own). On the opposing page are clearly laid out instructions. There are all kinds of ...more

I liked that the recipes didn't call for flour (or other ingredients, for that matter) that I'd have to seek out at the health food store.
Plenty of easy, classic recipes as well as some more fancy, complicated recipes. Looks like a good cookbook!

Told my roommate to pick out a cake for me to make today- he chose the Pappy's Pistachio Tea Cake. While it was moist and yummy, it was kind of a let down- I expected it be taste more like pistachios, and it was kind of an expensive cake for my broke butt (an entire container of cream cheese, a bag of pistachios and half of my fair trade organic chocolate bar? This cake cost like $10 to make!). I'd like to play with it more if it didn't call for costly ingredients that I don't usually have on ha ...more

Vegan Baking. I liked that the recipes could accommodate a variety of vegan ingredients, so that home chefs could use the milk-substitute or margarine-substitute of their choice (handy for those of us who only make the occasional vegan dish and thus have cupboards that aren't as well stocked as a vegan chef otherwise might). The selection of cakes seemed pretty good, too (rice cooker cakes!) though I really only tried the PB-banana cake ("nutty 'nana snack cake")--I'd make it again, especially s ...more
Although the title does not indicate this, there are some delicious gluten free recipes in this book. I am a newly gluten free former vegetarian. I enjoy vegan food, and I am intrigued by the chemistry of baking. I love how Kris Holechek explains how to decide what to substitute for eggs or all-purpose flour in different types of baked goods. The only negative things I could possibly say about this book are (1) It is pretty short for a cookbook, and (2) A lot of recipes call for tofu, to which I ...more
Awesome explanations of what actual ingredients do in the baking process!!

I don't own this, I took it out of the library during a baking binge. I made a couple of the cakes and the instructions were very clear and the cakes turned out brilliantly. There was a nice variety of cakes for any occasion. Highly recommend.
Although I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, I know for a fact that this short, sweet book is full of beautiful colour photographs which make their corresponding recipes even less resistible! The numerous GF options make this book even more appealing.

I've made several of these cakes so far and they've all been excellent!

Kris Holechek Peters grew up in her grandmother's kitchen, absorbing every flavor and technique until she was able to perfect her grandmother's favorite baking recipes. When she became vegan, Kris learned to create those old family favorites and exciting new baked treats without using any animal products.

Kris lives in the Midwest with her kitties and an excessively large collection of Bundt pans.
