I have finally decided what I will be contributing to the Online Bake Sale for Japan! I thought I would give you a little sneak peak of my contributions with some info on each. Recipes will follow shortly. Be sure to check the site in the days leading up to the auction on the 30th to see all of the treats up for bid.
The first time I made this Whole Wheat Vegan Banana Bread I fell in love with it. I now feel the need to make it about once a week. Sometimes I even make two and store one in the freezer in case I’m having a banana bread emergency and just need to eat some…right now. This bread is moist and slightly dense, as any good banana bread should be, and completely free of eggs and dairy. (Two loaves available.)
If you love the crunch, crumble, and buttery goodness of shortbread cookies, but don’t eat dairy or eggs, these Vegan Shortbread Cookies are for you. They get their buttery taste and flaky crumble from butter flavored vegetable shortening, are completely egg and dairy free, and made with natural, raw sugar. They’re especially good with a little jam on top! You will receive 20 shortbreads in a decorative tin.
Jam is something I always have in my pantry. It’s so very versatile. I particularly love to use it to dress up cookies. This Set of Four Jams would be a perfect addition to your pantry. The flavors include: Strawberry Balsamic, Lemon Curd, Mango Cinnamon, and Blueberry Lime. These jams have been canned and will last up to a year, but I expect they will be long gone before then. Except for the Lemon Curd, they are egg and dairy free. (Four sets available.)
Whenever an overwhelming urge to bake cookies starts to come over me, I make Blackberry Jam Thumbprints. They are seriously delicious and everyone loves them. They are soft, crumbly cookies with a sweet jam center. The cookies are rolled in white sparkling sugar before baking to give them a little crunch. These bite-sized cookies are so good I could easily eat a dozen in one sitting, so I am going to ship you three dozen in a decorative tin.
Homemade marshmallows are a necessity in life; they are just so much better than store-bought. They’re soft and pillowy and just slightly chewy, plus they make the cutest S’mores! Homemade S’mores are the most requested sweet from all of my friends. I’ll be shipping a dozen of these in a decorative tin to ensure the marshmallows stay fresh.
