I want to make something with apples and caramel topping. I looked up vegan clafoutis and got one from "go dairy free"--yeah,not a vegan site! 🙄
I guess I'll just make a carmel sauce and bake the apple slices with it- I have braeburn and they'll be perfect! Or just saute them and make a sauce?
I'm open to ideas!

Oh oh....I used to make cinnamon apples in crescent rolls with a carmel sauce on top! I hope I still have a tube in the fridge!

Never made anything apple, but I did something with raw sunflower seeds
I dislike raw sunflower seeds, but hoped to use in place of cashews, which are much pricier. I blended 1 cup soaked seeds with some olives, and just enough brine and a bit of lemon juice, and 1/4 cup of nooch. Not that good! I'm not fond of the seed taste, my son the olive taste!
I thought about fermenting it with a probiotic but I think that would be even worse.
It's not terrible, it's pretty good on crackers

Edit: I mixed a little Veganaise in it and it reminds me, very much, of goose-liver/braunschweiger. I used to like a slice with mayo on a sandwich when I was a kid. I kinda like it now

I don’t have tequila so I used rum...but just a little. I can’t even taste it. I didn’t really want anything strong tasting. I also used soy milk instead of coconut. And no cayenne for me. It’s obviously a very versatile recipe because there were no issues with changing it up to the way I like it. 😊

I even messed up because I have this habit of not liking to measure lol. I ended up adding not enough milk or too much chocolate, because it got too hard and I couldn’t roll it into balls. So I reheated it in the microwave to soften and added more milk. Voila! Worked like a charm lol.

I have a large multi grain, wholewheat/blended flour loaf proving in a warm place.

It'll be nice to have some freshly baked bread with spread for tea later on. 🥰
Sounds lovely!
I have never been much of a baker, didn’t have the time until now and now the kitchen where I am is Really not suited for it.
