Maple Cakes

MAPLE CAKES

Is it a cookie? Is a cake? Is it both? These vegan Maple Cakes are a little bit crispy on the outside but fluffy and soft on the inside. They are just sweet enough! You can whip out this recipe quickly because the quantity is perfect for just one cookie sheet. I made these for my three-year old and he said, “Mmm, good!”

DRY INGREDIENTS

1 C + 1/8 C all-purpose flour
1/4 t each: baking powder, baking soda, salt
organic cane sugar for sprinkling

WET INGREDIENTS

“Flax egg”: 1 T ground flax + 3 T water
1/2 C pure maple syrup
1/4 C + 1/8 C Earth Balance
1/2 t vanilla extract

ASSEMBLY

  1. Mix your “flax egg” in a small bowl and set aside for a few minutes.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. In another medium bowl, mash the maple syrup into the Earth Balance (lumps are okay!).
  4. Add the vanilla and flax egg to the maple syrup mash.
  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients (except the sugar for sprinkling).
  6. Use a regular spoon to scoop little batter balls onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet, then smash them down somewhat. It should make about 20.
  7. Sprinkle a little bit of organic cane sugar on the top of each before baking.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees for up to 15 minutes (depends on your oven).
  9. Move to a wire rack about a minute after they come out of the oven.
  10. Serve to three year old after they cool off a bit!

The 2013 Vida Vegan Conference is here!

If you don’t know, this is a vegan bloggers conference.  It’s my first year attending, and it’s happening in Portland, Oregon for 3 days.

It’s incredibly exciting to be around so many like-minded people who are trying to change the world for animals.  This experience is all about vegan community, vegan food, animal rights advocacy, vegan products, vegan blogging, food activism, and…vegan swag!

(For people who eat such dismal diets of deprivation, vegans sure get excited about their food!)

This post is all about the swag.  I had to photograph my loot ’cause I like to take pictures of stuff.  I’m weird that way!

First, I received a little swag bag when I checked into Hotel Fifty.  The Susan Nichole makeup/toiletry bag is gorgeous!
