Aquafaba SweetnessPosted: October 13, 2016
We were thrilled to have an opportunity to test recipes for Zsu Dever’s newly released Aquafaba book. We tested a mix of sweet and savory recipes and they were all delicious. It’s amazing to think that the water we were draining off our chickpeas all these years could be so versatile. Since receiving our copy of the book we’ve tried a few more recipes and have yet to be disappointed. In fact the Swiss Buttercream is our new favorite cupcake topping. It’s light and fluffy and not overly sweet.
This past weekend we went to Carter Mountain Orchard to pick apples. In addition to apple picking their specialty is apple cider doughnuts. Unfortunately these are not vegan. Aquafaba to the rescue! We wanted to bring a treat for the kids and the Baked Apple Cider Cake Doughnuts were perfect. Especially with the addition of some leftover Swiss Buttercream we had on hand after making cupcakes for a birthday party. The big kid has been bringing these for lunch this week and loves them.
On another note, I started the year with the idea that we’d try at least one recipe from 52 different cookbooks this year, an average of one per week. I’ve fallen hopelessly behind on this effort but this will certainly count. We’ll see how many more we can add before the end of the year and maybe we’ll keep at it into next year.
