I love making old-fashion recipes and modernizing them with a dairy-free twist. Several years ago, I found this Seattle-based Cook Book called Table Talk that was written back in the 1950's.
There are several amazing recipes that are also super easy to veganize.
I have this old-fashion style of dress that is designed from a company that was based in New York. Although the dress is from the 1970's, it has an older design like a 1930's low-waisted dress.
With all this sense of being old-fashion, I decided to make the "Old Fashion Nut Cake," recipe, and instead of eggs I used banana.
Bananas and applesauce are two fruit-based egg replacements. It add the moisture, texture and flavor to any vegan baked good. So for this recipe, I chose to work with bananas as the egg base.
In addition, many recipes call for a TON of sugar. I naturally reduce the sugar because of health reasons, but also when using fruit as an egg substitute, it becomes naturally sweeter.
In modern times, we eat too much sugar so I prefer making baked goods naturally sweet first, and then adding additional sugar.
It is my hope that people learn how to eat and bake healthier and dairy free!
