Vegan Lemon Blueberry Mochi Cake

I still have some of that coconut milk beverage so I thought I'd try again at another vegan mochi cake.

Stacey's Vegan Lemon Blueberry Mochi Cake Ingredients:
2 c brown rice flour
1/4 tsp salt
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 tbs carageenan, powdered
2/3 c agave nectar, organic
1/3 c canola oil, organic
1 c coconut milk beverage (original)
1/4 c lemon juice (from 2 medium sized lemons)
1 c frozen blueberries, organic

First I preheated the oven to 350F. Then, I stirred all the dry ingredients, and then added the wet ingredients, adding the blueberries last. Stirring the dry ingredients first is essential because carageenan tends to clump up when it gets wet, so it's best if it's distributed throughout the flour.

At this point, it was quite thick. I spread it into a glass pyrex baking dish (with a lid of course, so it would be easier for transport to work:
I baked it for about 35 minutes on the lower rack, but it probably should have been baked on the upper rack for a bit more time, I think because of the frozen blueberries.  It was still soft in the middle, but since it's vegan, there was really no food safety danger.
 The center actually tasted a bit like regular mochi, so I liked it, but it wasn't what I was going for.
However, I brought it into the office around 10a and it was gone by 11:30a, so I suppose everyone else didn't mind much either. :)

Throwing some shade

Ombre Flowers So I wanted to try that new ombre cake frosting trend.  I used whip cream here on an eggless chocolate cake I made for a potluck at work (for those egg-free individuals on my team).  Everyone was sufficiently impressed.  I was a little disappointed at the messiness of the blue/purple end, and I kinda ran out of cream, but it tasted good. Anyway... Eggless Chocolate Cake 2 c sugar 1 3/4 c flour 3/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder 1.5 tsp baking powder 1.5 tsp baking soda 1/2 c sunflower oil, organic 1 c whole milk, organic 1 c boiling water 1 tsp salt 3 tbs flax seeds Roses 2 c heavy cream 1/4c sour cream 1 tsp vanilla ½ c powdered sugar food coloring (if desired) Pre-heat oven to 350F. Soak flax seeds in milk for an hour or overnight (or use flax meal). Blend (I used a stick blender).  Mix dry ingredients. Mix in wet ingredients, with boiling water being last. Pour into cake pan (9x13).  Bake for 30 min, rotating once.    Let cake

White Chocolate Love Bars

More hearts for my Valentine's Day assortment... Stacey's White Chocolate Love Bars Ingredients : 16 oz Chocolates El Rey White Chocolate Discos 64% Guittard Dark Chocolate couverture 1 oz bar mold I'm using a 16 cavity bar mold that has one ounce bars.  I think I got mine from Tomric.com ( candy bar mold ). First I tempered some dark chocolate for the decorations. I use the seeding method and a microwave to temper my chocolate.  I put my couverture in a pyrex bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring with my favorite rubber spatula (the 1 piece ones are the best), until it's about 100F, using my trusty  temperature gun .  Then I add my seeding chocolate and stir until it reaches 90F, removing the seed chocolate afterward. The other thing about tempering chocolate is that you can't really make only one or two ounces - you need to do at least 4-5 ounces or it won't come out right.  So, I made these while I was making something else.  But, yo

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

My son (currently 2 years old) loves pancakes.  Protein, not so much.  I tried to get a bit more protein in his carbs. Ingredients  (organic, if possible) 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 3 eggs 1 cup cottage cheese 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tbs milk butter, oil or oil spray Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients and then fold into dry ingredients mixing as little as possible (keeps the pancakes tender). Heat a pan and grease with butter. My son likes small pancakes (so I use about 1-2 teaspoons at a time), but you can make full size pancakes if you wish. It usually takes a minute or two before you can turn them over, or you can look for small bubbles at the edges of the pancakes before flipping. Remove when golden brown. If you want to substitute white flour, you'll have to add more flour (maybe 3-4 extra tablespoons) unless you like thin pancakes. Also, I usually make a big batch o
