The Joy of Vegan Baking

Before I became a vegetarian I had a lot of misconceptions about vegan baked goods.  I knew nothing about vegan baking, and I figured that vegan cookies and cakes must be filled with really weird ingredients, have a texture like cardboard, and taste, well…funky.

Boy was I wrong!! Even though we are not full-time vegans, I do now sometimes bake as one.  Substitutions for animal products in baked goods are many and varied, and while I do still consider some of them a little “weird”, they do work, and with delicious results.


In this episode of the podcast, you’ll learn about vegan substitutions for eggs, milk, buttermilk, butter, and refined sugar.
