There are a lot of things that go into making a traditional Christmas dessert.
For one, it must be fresh.
For another, it has to be rich.
For yet another, you need to be vegan.
But if you’re going to make a vegan Christmas dessert, the process is a bit more complicated than it seems.
The recipe below is a combination of two of my favorite dishes: Sweet Honey and Desert Desserts.
Both are sweet, creamy desserts with a rich, buttery flavor.
But the difference is in the ingredients.
The sweet honey is made with raw honey, while the desert dessert is made from pecans.
In this recipe, the pecan is replaced with hazelnuts.
The goal is to make the dish sweet and creamy, but still a good dessert to enjoy during a traditional holiday.
Here’s the basic ingredients:1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour1 teaspoon baking powder1/4 teaspoon salt1/2 cup non-dairy milk2 tablespoons pure maple syrup1/3 cup nonfat milk3/4 cup whole milk (not milkfat)1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract1/1 cup nonalcoholic non-fat milk or other non-oil-based nonfat/vegan milk (see notes below)1 tablespoon vanilla extract3 tablespoons pure vanilla bean extract (see below)2 tablespoons vanilla extract (optional)1 cup honey1/5 cup nondairy buttercreamTo make the cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Grease a 9×13 pan and set aside.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, non-Dairy milk, and milk in a large bowl.
Whisk together in a medium bowl until well combined.
Add the non-alcoholic milk, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean extracts.
Whack dry ingredients together with a wooden spoon or spatula until well blended.
Add flour mixture to dry ingredients and blend.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Let cool in pan for a few minutes before slicing.
The batter should be glossy.
(Make sure it’s not too runny, otherwise it won’t hold together.)
To make the chocolate: Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy and smooth.
Transfer to a piping bag and pipe on top of cake.
(You may need to pipe chocolate drizzle over top of the cake.)
You can use any non-toxic food coloring.
I used raspberry and cinnamon, but you can use anything you like.
(I like to use a lighter color.)
If you’re using a non-stick baking pan, make sure it has nonstick coating.
If you use a silicone baking pan or a silicone-based cookie sheet, make the pan nonstick and use nonstick cooking spray.2.
For more flavor, add in more non-powdered chocolate.3.
You might also use a small bowl and a spoon to gently mix in the melted non-whipping cream.
If that’s too difficult, add more nonalcohol and/or nonfat or nonfat-free milk.4.
You could also use almond flour, but it’s more expensive.5.
If using pecanno flour, you can also add more milk and non-water based milk to make it vegan.
