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. :)

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 flour3/4 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 cool at least an hour.
Whip creams and then mix in powdered sugar and …

Photo -> Ink Drawing #1: Picnic

I went out to have a picnic with two of my best friends, Ester and Young out in Napa.  We brought Ester's dog Fergus and I took a picture.


I've started a new hobby of trying to turn my photos into drawings (and maybe paintings someday when I have the time).  Here is my first (and perhaps only) attempt at an ink rendition.


I did pencil first, since I tend to have problems with proportions, then filled in later with ink. You can click on the images for larger versions.

Chocolate Chunk Cranberry Cookies

Ingredients
(weight not volume)
10.1 oz flour
0.5 oz cornstarch
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
12 tbs (1.5 sticks) butter
7 oz light brown sugar
3 oz granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla bean paste (you can use regular vanilla extract if you want)
9 oz dark and white chocolate chunks (I chopped up a 70% bar and used white chocolate disks 6oz:3oz dark:white - you can use whatever mixture you like, or use chocolate chips)
1/3 c dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350F.

Soften butter in the microwave. Beat sugar, egg, vanilla, and butter until fluffy.  Add dry ingredients and mix.

Drop about 2 tbs of dough at a time on the cookie sheets,  about 2" apart (I used a 1 oz scooper).

Bake for 10-12 min, rotating the pan once after 6 minutes until edges are starting to brown (and if you're …
