I recently made these yummy waffles to test out a new recipe in an upcoming cookbook by Kelly Peloza. The directions were easy to follow and if you are a fan of fruity waffles, this one is for you! The only downside was the waffles were a bit heavy (esp. for a summer breakfast), but could probably be lightened up a bit if some of the denser ingredients were reduced. Looking forward to more breakfast recipes from Kelly!
For my latest testing for Kelly Peloza‘s upcoming desserts’ cookbook, I (or I should say my husband) decided to make her recipe for Kahlua Glazed Donuts! And yes, Kahlua IS vegan!
Since my SO has earned quite the reputation for donut-making in our town, I left the preparation and frying up to him. I partook in the tasting and ingredient checking. Needless to say these donuts were delicious! Even before the ganache was added, just the donuts and glaze themselves were divine. The ganache could have used a bit more Kahlua to get the needed effect, but overall these were wonderful. All of his non-vegan coworkers devoured them and gave good reports. These would have gone nicely with a cup of coffee or tea.
I recently made a new cupcake that is set to come out in a new dessert cookbook by Kelly Peloza. I’ve never used lavender before in baking, but it was quite the experiment! The cupcakes were delicious, moist, and had an awesome lavender lemon buttercream frosting to boot!
Yet, another amazing recipe I just tested for Kelly Peloza’s new cookbook! As a fan of wine, I could not pass this one up. If you love a distinct, complex, rich tasting dessert — this is the one for you! The red wine glaze drizzled on top of the frosting really seals the deal on this one. I’m inspired to make my own wine-y desserts now. Thanks Kelly!
I give these cupcakes a 4 1/2 out of 5 carrots on my veganlicious scale.
I recently tested a new recipe for Kelly Peloza’s upcoming cookbook (which is centered around drink-inspired foods!) for Peanut Butter Cup Banana Smoothie Muffins. Let me just say that these things barely made it out of my kitchen for my hubby to bring to work! The kitchen filled with the aroma somewhere between banana bread heaven and a peanut brittle candy making factory! I could have eaten the whole batch, but figured I should stop after one or two. Divine! You can get a sneak peek at the recipe at Kelly’s blog, Seitan Beats Your Meat.
