Kosher Dairy-Free Baking Cookbook

22 Dec

I just ordered The Kosher Baker by Paula Shoyer, and it looks really good so I thought I’d share it with you.  I’ll post a review after I get it and try some recipes out.  It seems that all of the recipes use no dairy products.  I’m expecting that they still use eggs, but I plan on instead using Ener-G Egg Replacer, 3 tablespoons silken tofu per egg, or a mixture of 2 tablespoons water with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon cornstarch per egg.

Judging by the table of contents, the book includes all kinds of desserts, from cakes to fruit tarts to scones to mousse, as well as challah of course.

If you hurry up within the next 12 hours, you can get it at a discount from JDeal (the Jewish version of Groupon) here.  Otherwise, it’s available on Amazon here (the site includes a “look inside”).

[Note:  Apologies for being away from this blog for so long.  I was preoccupied with some personal stuff, but now I’m back and hoping to make this a regular thing again.]

Bread Pudding

3 Sep

This recipe comes from a great cookbook called Vegan Cooking for Everyone by Leah Leneman.  It’s a tasty, warming, and filling dessert that’s a little sweet too.

  • Vegan margarine as required
  • 5-6 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1/2 cup raisins (I omitted these but I’ll give it a try next time)
  • 1/6 – 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons soy flour (I used whole wheat flour instead)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2-1/2 cups soy milk
  • Grated nutmeg as required
  1. Spread margarine on the bread slices and cut them into strips.
  2. Layer the bread slices with the raisins and sugar in an ovenproof dish.
  3. Place the water, flour, and baking powder in a bowl and beat together with a fork.
  4. Heat the soy milk in a saucepan, and remove from the heat before it boils.  Beat the flour mixture into the heated milk.
  5. Pour the milk and flour mixture over the bread and sprinkle with grated nutmeg.  Leave to soak for 20-30 minutes.
  6. Bake the bread pudding at 350 degrees for about half an hour.  Or, cover with wax paper and microwave for 12 minutes.  (I baked it in the oven, I just don’t believe food tastes as well when microwaved.)
