Just read a nice simple article about creating vegan desserts - it has a health slant and I think it would be a good read to pass along to a newer vegan, so just thought I'd share. 

 

One thing it notes is to use half fruit puree and half Earth Balance margarine in place of butter, which I might try, because only using Earth Balance has given me nothing but trouble (leaky cookies and breads).

Yep,Thanks Jennifer!I just used the 2 teaspoons vinegar and 1 teaspoon baking soda to replace an egg in some muffins.It worked great.I think those were some of the most fluffy muffins I've ever made.

There is a book called "Are You Sure It's Not Vegan?".

I'm sure everyone would love.

The author challenges anyone to identify the difference between a vegan and a not-vegan dessert.

I always use flax as an egg replacement. It works well I think. I hate vinegar though and always have flax on hand, so that's prob why.

I'm going to buy some flax meal.But right now all I have is whole flax and they don't digest very well so I didn't want to use that.The vinegar and baking soda worked great for now.

Milled flax seeds are simply whole flax seeds that have been ground with a mill.. You could do what I do, just toss a few in the blender/food processor for a bit, you get the same end result as the pre-milled packages for quite a lot less money. Plus fresh ground stays fresh longer since it's not all ground up, you can store the whole seeds and just grind what you need. Also seems like it would retain more nutrients since the seed is kept in it's natural state until use.
