Karolina states that you shouldn’t have to compromise on flavour, texture and the look of your cake just because it’s vegan. Having become vegan over 10 years ago, she was horrified by the vegan bakes on offer, and spent the following years perfecting her recipes so that all the old baking favourites – from carrot cake and chocolate cookies to madeleines and muffins have been modernised and veganised – as well as creating new and exciting baking recipes that you would never guess were vegan.
In this ultimate bible, she also includes a comprehensive tips and techniques section with troubleshooting advice (including dairy alternatives and the miracle of aquafaba) and lots of practical photography to help the novice baker on their way.
