Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

After the success of egg free version of the classic chocolate chip cookies (both chewy and crispy), I wanted to try my hands on another American classic the “Oatmeal Raisin Cookies”. I didn’t know then that it’s going to cost me a lot of time and material to find the perfect recipe for an eggless version. I had one recipe in hand from a book called “Cookies”. Since I have baked earlier from this book, I thought of proceeding with a recipe from that book itself. Then I saw that it used 1 and 1/2 sticks of butter, so I thought why not search for a healthy version of the cookies and found one in the net. It used only 5 tablespoons of butter, if I remember right. I proceeded with that recipe, substituting flax seed meal for the eggs in the recipe. I think I went overboard by replacing 1/2 the quantity of all purpose flour with whole wheat flour, because the cookies did not taste any good. I guess it was because of too many substitutions.

Vegan Brownie Cupcakes

Vegan Brownie Cupcakes

I had mentioned about vegan brownie cupcakes in my previous post and here I’m with the recipe. Actually 2 weeks back it was my son’s turn to provide snacks for his classmates in preschool and I was wondering what to bake from the humungous collection of eggless recipes I have now. Since I’m hosting this event, I decided to bake something using flax seed meal. I wanted to bake something simple, which appeals children and that can be easily packed. I had borrowed “The Joy of Vegan Baking” book from the library and this brownie recipe (the author has actually adapted the recipe from Sinfully Vegan) caught my eye. Do you know the reason? It does not have any added fat like butter/oil etc. Applesauce is replaced for fat in the recipe. I’m aware of the fact that unsweetened applesauce can be used as an egg substitute as well as a fat substitute, but I have tried neither. So I was determined to try this recipe because I will be baking something healthy and who doesn’t like brownies, leave alone preschoolers.

Vegan Pumpkin Cookies

Hi, everybody! Hope you all had a wonderful and safe Deepavali! I’ve been very busy for the past couple of days. Last week it was my son’s turn to provide snacks for his classmates at pre-school. It was for 2 days actually. So I baked Eggless Brownie Cupcakes using flax seed meal (I’ll post it shortly) and vegan pumpkin cookies. The next day was my husband’s birthday and I baked a cake for him. All this baking really made me very tired and nauseous. I realized that too much of anything is not good. I really wonder how people work in bakeries!

Eggless Chocolate Cake Recipe

My son turned 3 yesterday. For his birthday I wanted to bake an eggless chocolate layered cake with frosting and all. Earlier I have baked an eggless carrot cake and also a chocolate cake using soy milk. This eggless chocolate cake recipe was way before I started the blog and for some reason I did not save the recipe. It had a soy milk ganache for the frosting and it also came out very well. I wish I had saved the recipe.
