Description

The Science of Easy Vegan Baking features 10 easy-to-follow, completely vegan recipes to help people who are new to dessert preparation get a grasp on the basics. This includes cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and even homemade icing. None of the recipes use dairy, eggs, or peanut butter, so those with allergies and other dietary restrictions can enjoy.

These are just some of the recipes that are available in Samita Sarkar's vegan dessert book, Taste Tests -- and a couple that aren't!

Because baking is just as much a science as an art, this course also includes short, digestible scientific tidbits explaining the chemistry of the recipes and the ingredients, and why they react the way that they do.

Enjoy!

  • beginner bakers
  • people who are interested in food science
