I had the honor of testing another recipe for Catherine. This time it was French Toast. Since I had the whole Ener-G vs. egg experiment the other night, I figured I would be able to make both the regular and vegan versions for her.
Both versions were yummy! I topped them with Cool Whip, raspberries and maple syrup. Yeah, I know - Cool Whip does not = vegan, but it was still good. The French Toast gives a little sweetness kick due to Catherine's combo of ingredients. Worth trying when the cookbook comes out!
While I was in my Chicago meetings, my friend, Pat, gave me an alternate instructions for Angel Food Cake and I tried it this weekend. Basically, you take a box of angel food cake and omit the water. Instead, dump a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapples in and mix away. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 mintues and voila! A great cake is born. Seriously, this stuff is addicting and fluffy and moist - mmmm!
Not sure if anyone else does this, but when I'm mixing the batter, I have to at least try it. With regular angel food cake, the batter is kinda gross. Not the case with Pineapple Angel Food Cake! The batter is great. Try it for yourself.
