Apple Cake

This apple cake is so moist and fluffy. It's hard to believe that its a vegan cake! This make 9 servings of cake, each serving packs about 180 calories. 


I used fresh apples from my Bountiful Basket.
 Ingredients:
3 tablespoons Softened Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons Ener-G (in place of 1 Egg)
2 tablespoons Water
3 tablespoons Soy Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
3 cups Peeled And Diced Apples, about 3
1/4 cup Chopped Nuts (I used 1/8 cup Walnuts)

  1. Preheat oven at 350F for 15 minutes. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Whip together Ener-G, water, soy milk and vanilla extract until nice and foamy.
  4. Add the Ener-G mixture to the creamed butter/sugar and beat everything together with the hand mixer until thoroughly combined. This mixture looks creamy like a white sauce.
  5. In another bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add this to the wet ingredients. The batter will be thick.
  6. Stir in apples and nuts. Mix it thoroughly.
  7. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with just a few crumbs.You can tell that the cake is done when it starts pulling from the edges.
  8. This cake can be sliced directly from the pan while its still warm, so no need to wait for the pan to cool to invert it and then slice it.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
