Chloe's Vegan Desserts : More than 100 Exciting New Recipes for Cookies and Pies, Tarts and Cobblers, Cupcakes and Cakes--and More!
Chloe's fantastic-tasting, beautiful desserts are what first got her national media attention when she wowed the judges on Food Network's Cupcake Wars.Now Chef Chloe offers her first all-dessert cookbook. Chloe works a different kind of food science magic, with liquid proportions and leaveners like baking soda and vinegar to make cakes rise and remain moist and to give her food a texture and taste that vegans and non-vegans alike crave. Chloe re-creates classic desserts and treats from creme brulee to tiramisu to beignets as well as store-bought favourites-made with a humorous taste twist-like her ChloeO-type Oreos and Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. Chloe also serves up brand-new triumphs like her dreamy Lemon Olive Oil Cake with Rosemary Ice Cream, Coconut and Chocolate Cream Pies, Coconut Sorbet with Cashew Brittle, and a dozen innovative cupcake creations. Who can possibly resist?
