Vegan biscuits and cake

Ok, I forgot to say, my husband is a vegan. This is a project that has been going on for two years. We've been married three years. So, I re-learned to cook.

These are probably high fat in the vegan recipe, but then, there isn't a lot he can/will eat... so he definitely isn't watching calories.

Baking Powder Biscuits - Veganized
2 c. flour (or 1.5 c. white flour, .5 c wheat flour)
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 c. unsweetened soy milk (skim milk non-vegan)
1/3 c. oil (we use 1/2 olive oil, 1/2 canola) (melted margarine, non-vegan)

stir dry mixture together in a large pan/bowl/wok, mix milk and oil together in another cup or bowl. Pour wet mixture onto dry, stir until combined. You might need to add just a little more flour if your dough is sticky. Roll into 6 or 7 balls, stretch each ball into a flat dough pancake. Put on a cookie sheet or aluminum foil in 400 degree oven for 15 - 20 minutes. Great with tomatoes, salsa and vegan gravy (store-bought :o(

Cake mix, veganized

Duncan Hines moist yellow cake mix
mashed banana or ground flaxseed as binder(eggs)
canola oil and water as mix indicates

Note: I noticed Duncan Hines moist yellow cake mix isn't vegan anymore! It has egg white or whey in it, I forget which. Double check your cake mixes -- but a banana is a good binder to use instead of egg. You could also look up a regular 'quick cake' from-scratch mix like this Applesauce Cake and substitue the banana for the egg.

I made these last minute for Thanksgiving Dinner. They were a success and I will now be making them often.
