Rebecca Coleman, a Vancouver-Based food blogger, loves nothing more than baking for her friends and family.
“Baking is my love language,” she jokes. “But more and more of my friends and family are identifying food allergies, or choosing a more plant-based diet.”
Her obsession with making delicious, plant-based baked goods lead to her becoming an expert in aquafaba, the water drained from a can of beans that acts as an egg-white substitute. Aquafabulous!, her first cookbook, was published by Robert Rose in 2017.
Vegan Baking Made Easy, 60 Foolproof, Plant-Based Recipes is being published by Rockridge Press August 10, 2021.
“While I learned to bake as a child, I am recognising that a lot of people did not, and baking for them is actually really challenging. Add to the layer of no butter, no milk, no eggs, and…. well people are ready to give up before they even begin.”Rebecca Coleman
The purpose of the book is to demystify the challenge of vegan baking. In it, Coleman outlines some tips and tricks for veganizing your baking, goes over substitutes, and then also includes 60 plant-based recipes, many of which are under 10 ingredients, take less than an hour to make, or are one-bowl.
“It was my goal to make vegan baking accessible to all. There are no weird ingredients in this book. Everything is easily available at your local grocery store or by Amazon. I am also absurdly proud that there is zero tofu in these recipes. I don’t really love tofu.”Rebecca Coleman
“I was very inspired by the recipes I baked growing up. These were classic bakes my mother made all the time, that I learned from her. In fact, quite a few of the recipes in this book came from her recipe box, which I veganized”Rebecca Coleman
