3. Vegan Hot Chocolate Cake

This delicious hot chocolate cake with a toasted vegan fluff topping is sure to be a hit at this year’s Christmas parties! The peppermint extract that I added to the fluff makes me think of hot peppermint mochas from Starbucks (which is my go-to drink of the season). I used aquafaba as an egg white replacement to make the “fluff”. It whipped up so nicely that it has inspired me to see what else I can create with it. Click here to get the full recipe!

4. Vegan Gingerbread Loaf

This loaf is dense, moist and almost a little spicy from the ground ginger. When my husband tried it, he said it gave him an “old world” feel. When he said that, my mind immediately went to life on the frontier. Think “Little House on the Prairie” vibes. I think it comes from the combination of the molasses and blend of warm spices. I wish you could have smelled the aroma coming from my kitchen while this was baking! Click here to get the full recipe!
