{Book Review} Chloe’s Vegan Desserts

cover

I’ve temporarily gone vegan! Just kidding I’ve got two vegan cookbook reviews lined up but I promise they are both delicious and droll worthy!  I actually got Chloe’s Vegan Desserts just before Christmas and tested it our right away but the release date was in March so I kept thinking that was miles away and now somehow it’s already April. Sorry Chloe! I was pretty excited about this book. I love trying my hand at different kinds of baking but sometimes the specialty stuff never works out for me. I held my breath a little while Alex taste tested both of the recipes I made.

Homemade Vegan Oreos

I was very pleasantly surprised with the results. The chocolate pie was a huge hit with Alex and tasted very rich and decadent. The vegan Oreos were my favorite since it’s a cookie that I grew up eating. I was able to find all of the ingredients we needed without any problems. There aren’t any bizarre or expensive items needed. A few of the techniques are different than regular baking but I think with a little practice this could be achieved. You can read about my mishap with vegan whipped cream later this week!

Vegan Chocolate Cream Pie

For those that don’t remember. Chloe was the first vegan baker to win Cupcake Wars and she published her first book a year ago, Chloe’s Kitchen. I don’t have this book because a few years ago I tried to make the vegan mac and cheese recipe from her website and long story short it’s still the #1 dinner disaster that’s occurred in our house. I had to throw it away and order take out! It was pretty funny though. I think I’ll stick to what I’m good at, baking!

The book has 7 chapters and is pretty thorough. It covers breakfast, drinks, mousses, cake, cupcakes and pies. There is also an introduction to vegan baking and a chapter in the back that covers the basics. I’ve already bookmarked a few other recipes to try out soon, Tiramisu Pancakes, Fudge Bars and Almond Crunch Cupcakes.

I received a copy to review

  1. I remember her on Cupcake Wars – I think good vegan baking shouldn’t taste any different to other baking…but that’s so often not the case!
