My Vegan Baking Class

Sorry that there are no pics for this post. The yummy baked goods when so fast I did not have time to take a picture. Here are the recipes I used for my Vegan baking class at Hollanders. I made a dessert with chocolate biscuits which topped, a fresh local cherry fruit cobbler, and topped with coconut ice cream.

Feel free to comment on your favor vegan baked goods/desserts. I am collecting recipes.

Note: When baking vegan: Look for the V symbol on sugar to ensure a vegan product. Some brands of sugar may use animal products in processing.

Vegan Buttermilk biscuits

Make 10-12 biscuits Large biscuits 20-24 mini biscuits

2 cups of All Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick of chilled vegan butter (8 tablespoons)
3/4 soy buttermilk (plus 3/4 tablespoons of vinegar) Combine and sit for 10 minutes

Preheat oven to 450

In a food processor, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in food processor. Pulse to mix. Cube the vegan butter and add to the food processor. Pulse the processor until the vegan butter is combine to create a sandy mixture.

Pour the content into a bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in the chilled buttermilk. Mix to form a sticky dough. Dump out the dough on a well floured surface. fold the dough a few time, but do not over work it. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin to a thickness of one inch. Using a biscuit cutter, in a straight up and down motion (do not twist the biscuit cutter) cut out biscuits, and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet so that they are close but not touching.

When you have cut out all of the biscuit you can with the first pass of rolled out dough reform the scrap pieces and roll out again and cut more biscuits until you use all of the dough. I find that there always a small piece left over that is too small to form a full biscuit. I usually roll that into a tube and cook it along with the rest for a taster biscuit.

These work great with a vegan biscuit pot pie.

Bake for 10-12 minutes

Chocolate Biscuits:
