Fran Costigan means business with a tag line like “Unapologetically Luscious and Decadent Dairy-Free Desserts” from her Vegan Chocolate Cookbook. Make sure you read all the way to the bottom and enter with a chance to win a copy of your own!
Fran has detailed instructions – plus an intro chapter all about ingredients and equipment. There are chapters with recipes for truffles, cakes, cookies, bars, pies, puddings, confections and frozen desserts. The book is filled with beautiful photos with precise instructions that give you a baking education and you end up with a chocolate dessert – what more could you want?
Next on my to-try list: Moon Pies, Orange Olive Oil Cake, Black-bottomed Cupcakes – then I want to try and tackle the Opera cake.
Please note that this cookbook is not gluten-free, soy-free or no oil added, so some of you with special dietary needs will have to make your own substitutions.
