Tasty Tester Roundup

I had a few days off this week, so I recipe tested my butt off!

First, the sweet stuff from Carla's Vegan Bakesale testing:

Rich Brownies...the egg replacer is pureed raw cashews! So decadent and genius! Gently spiced with hints of cinnamon and ancho chili powder. So nice! Malva Bundt Cake...a super moist, sweet, and comforting apricot bundt cake! It even got an Apricot Jam Glaze for extra sweet and stickiness!
Pineapple Mango Mint Upside Down Cake...something sunny and flavorful to make watching LOST even MORE enjoyable!! Mint and pineapple? Yes, yes, and yes!!!

Now for some savory stuff from Melisser's upcoming The Vegan Girl's Guide to Life!

Chipotle Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes....spicy, smoky, and just all around amazing!! Perfectly paired with some homemade veggie burgers. Also, holla for the great local sweet potatoes!
And then there's Austrian Potato Salad! How can you not loooooove potato salad?! I even got these yummy local new potatoes and chives for it! Similar to a German potato salad, served warm with tons of onions and dill pickles in it. Mayo free too! Potatoes are the bomb, and so is Melliser!

So was the egg replacer basically cashew butter? Or was it more watery than that? Just wondering! Sounds interesting!

The brownie looks so good and I like the addition of blended cashews. Also, the bundt looks delicious with the glaze on top.

Um, wow. Jealousy strikes again. I love all of your "Lost"-themed ideas :-) except there was no episode this week! :-(

That bundt cake looks to die for. So moist, just the way a proper cake should be. And I've been hankerin' for some potato salad lately. Melisser's look delicious.

yeah, the egg replacer was more watery than cashew butter...almost like the base to a raw cake or something, just raw cashews soaked overnight and blended. so awesome!!
