Vegan Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Pecan Crumb

by VeganRicha »

Ingredients

Dry:
1—1/2 cups flour (I generally use a mix of Spelt/Wheat and unbleached all purpose)
½ cup powdered vegan sugar (Use 2 tbsp more for sweeter)
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
2 to 4 tsp pumpkin pie spice ( or 11/2 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp ginger, ¼ to ⅓ tsp nutmeg, ⅛ tsp cloves)
3 to 4 tbsp chopped walnuts or pecans

Wet:
1 cup pureed pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix
½ cup non dairy milk (almond or soy or lite coconut)
3 to 4 Tbsp oil
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Streusel
6 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1 tbsp granulated sugar , optional
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or chai spice or a mix of cardamom and cinnamon
1/3 tsp salt
2.5 tbsp refined coconut oil
US Customary – Metric

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a brownie pan with parchment. In a bowl, add all the dry ingredients and whisk well.

Add the wet ingredients to the bowl and mix to just about combine. Let it sit for 2 minutes, then mix again to ensure there are no dry flour streaks. Pour the thick batter into the brownie pan. Even it out using a spatula.

Make the Streusel by mixing everything in a bowl with your fingers or a spoon until crumbly, Add a tsp or so more oil if needed.

Sprinkle all over the cake and evenly spread. Bake the cake for 40 to 45 minutes. Test with a toothpick from the center.

Cool completely before slicing. Serve with turmeric pumpkin spice latte.. For a decadent dessert, add a light drizzle of plain sugar icing.

Vegan Ambrosia Salad

Hey it’s Patsy, your friendly veganizer and horse lover.

We love ambrosia salad and wondered if you could veganize it. You can pretty much veganize anything but some things are easier than others.

What Vivian personally loves about this recipe is that it has Dandies marshmallows in it. Dandies marshmallows are vegan and you can get them at Amazon in all sizes.

With a quick search I found a veganized recipe for ambrosia salad already done for us by Veg Girl RD. With Dandies no less.

That was easy!

Vegan Ambrosia Salad

Ingredients

• 1 cup red or green seedless grapes
• 1 cup mandarin orange segments (from 3 to 4 fresh mandarin, satsuma or clementine oranges, peeled and segmented; or one 15-oz. can of mandarin oranges, drained)
• 1 cup canned red tart cherries in water, drained
• 1¼ cups fresh pineapple, chopped (about ¼ of a pineapple)
• 1 cup large flake unsweetened coconut
• 1 cup vegan mini marshmallows, or regular-sized vegan marshmallows cut into sixths (it takes about 10 regular-sized mallows to make 1 cup once they’re cut up)
• 13.5-fluid ounce can full fat coconut milk, refrigerated (you’ll only be using the solid part that separates out when it’s chilled)
• 6 tablespoons powdered sugar
• Seeds from 1 scraped vanilla bean or ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Put a medium-sized mixing bowl in the freezer to chill for 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine grapes, orange segments, cherries, pineapple, coconut and marshmallows. If you’re cutting up the larger marshmallows, kitchen shears work great. I cut the mallows directly over the bowl of fruit and stir them in after each few. This helps coat the pieces in fruit juice and reduce the stick-to-each-other factor. I also washed the shears halfway through the process which made for easier and less sticky cutting.

Remove chilled bowl from the freezer. Turn the can of coconut milk upside down and open from the bottom. Carefully pour off the cloudy liquid and set aside. Spoon the thick white solid stuff that’s left behind into your chilled bowl.

Using a hand mixer, beat for about 1 minute. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and continue mixing for another 2 minutes until it increases in volume and looks “whipped”. (Since you’re starting with a fairly small volume, I had better luck using a hand mixer and a high-sided bowl than the wire whip attachment on my stand mixer.)

Gently fold the whipped coconut cream into the fruit mixture. Chill for 1 hour.
