hi, sister three here! i’ve become more interested in the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle and when i realized that that i had cashews, i immediately turned to chocolatecoveredkatie.com. they have so many nut-based desserts and i’ve always wondered if they’d work and wow, it works! i didn’t even soak the cashews for 8 hours, i only soaked them for three (i was impatient) and it was perfect. i had to let the “cheesecake” rest for a bit while i was blending it because the mixture kept on heating up. i also had to freeze the cheesecake for half an hour or so to firm it up without giving it too many ice crystals. for those wondering about the cashews, trust me you won’t even taste them! i don’t think that this cheesecake can fool someone into thinking that it’s a New York cheesecake, but it’s so delicious that they won’t notice. you can make a graham cracker crust with vegan butter (i think), or use the crust offered in chocolatecoveredkatie’s post. i really hope that you decide to make this considering you probably have every ingredient needed (besides maybe cashews) and enjoy it as much as i do!
here is the link to the recipe!
I made this yogurt cake for my birthday this past Saturday. Try the recipe here. Very easy to make and delicious. I substituted the Olive Oil with Vegetable Oil because I ran out, and added a little bit of rosewater out of personal preference. Wish you could be here to enjoy it with me sisters.
Hi sisters. I’m sure you’ve heard all about the storm we are having up in New York. Thankfully, I am safe where I am, so no need to worry. This morning, I felt pretty lucky and decided to bake a rustic apple tart. The original recipe can be found here: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Rustic-Caramel-Apple-Tart
The only difference is that I didn’t use a caramel sauce – the tart was very much sweet on its own! I also made thin slices and then chopped in half instead of doing chunks. The crust is really delicious, and flaky/buttery in all the best ways.
You will need-
1/4 stick of butter
Peanut butter (preferably smooth and creamy)
Cream the butter with powdered sugar.
After it is “buttercream” texture, add the peanut butter.
Add the vanilla extract and stir.
