We had a friend over the other night for vegan manicotti. He is not a vegan, but not scared to enter the world of vegan food. This post isn't about how much he enjoyed the vegan manicotti. Nor is it about the flinching that he tried to contain when he asked what the "ricotta" was made from. It's made with a blend of tofu and other secrets.
This is about how he went and found a recipe to bake a vegan cake. I was speechless. It was such a thoughtful gesture, that it caught us off guard. To make the gesture even better, it tasted delicious. He won the boy over instantly. I take awful food photos, but had to show them. This cake tastes even better warmed up. It makes the chocolate get all gooey.
