Dairy free vanilla cupcakes (the frosting isn’t DF!)

NOW AVAILABLE (!), DF vanilla cake/cupcakes! I’m sending these puppies out to my testers, but i think this version is as good or better than my dairy-full version. So light and tender! Now, if i could only come up with a substitute for butter in my buttercream. . . . (the buttercream on these cupcakes is NOT dairy free, just fyi).

Challah

GF challah

GF challah

 

Please let me know by THIS Saturday if you would like to order challah for next week. I need to order the challah molds. (GF dough is too wet to braid without a mold to keep the shape during the initial minutes of baking, and I only bought one to experiment with.) Otherwise, it will be available some time after Passover.

Hope everyone enjoyed the snowy day. After shoveling, and more shoveling, i sat in my chair for awhile and watched the snow fall into the space i had just shoveled. There must be a life metaphor somewhere here!

Pizza!!

Violette pizza with fresh tomatoes, spinach, arugula, black olives and homemade vegan cheese

Violette pizza with fresh tomatoes, spinach, arugula, black olives and homemade vegan cheese

What toppings to you want to see on a pizza? What size?  Pizza will be available next week.

My pizza crust is made with the same sourdough starter as my bagels, which gives the crust an authentic, chewy-crusty mouth feel! I leave the dough to rise for 10 hours to give it great flavor and its chewy crust.

I tend to like simplicity: cherry tomatoes, olives, cheese and greens thrown on top when it comes out of the oven. Sometimes i’ll put roasted parsnips on top (super yummy) or other such unusual pizza veggies.

I’ll likely give you a choice of simple or surprise :-). And you can choose my

homemade vegan cheese or mozzarella. They will come par baked and frozen for you to pop in the oven!  So send me your wish lists.
