Congratulations to my friend, Rebecca Coleman, on her new cookbook: “Vegan Baking Made Easy!
“Vegan Baking Made Easy” features 60 foolproof plant-based recipes including a whole chapter dedicated to vegan baking hacks (so useful!)
Rebecca loves nothing more than baking for her friends and family.
“Baking is my love language,” she jokes. “But more and more of my friends and family are identifying food allergies, or choosing a more plant-based diet.”
Her obsession with making delicious, plant-based baked goods lead to her becoming an expert in aquafaba, the water drained from a can of beans that acts as an egg-white substitute. Aquafabulous!, her first cookbook, was published in 2017.
“While I learned to bake as a child, I am recognizing that a lot of people did not, and baking for them is actually really challenging,” Rebecca admits. “Add to that the layer of no butter, no milk, no eggs, and… well people are ready to give up before they even begin.”
The purpose of the book is to demystify the challenge of vegan baking.
Rebecca says: “It was my goal to make vegan baking accessible to all. There are no weird ingredients in this book. Everything in there is easily available at your local grocery store or by Amazon.”
“I am also absurdly proud that there is zero tofu in these recipes. I don’t really love tofu.” she laughs.
