Balancing Act: Earth Balance’s Fun Vegan Baking Contest
Monday, December 3, 2012
As a dairy-free gal, I get a lot of people asking if it’s hard to give up such beloved foods. But I don’t see it as giving up anything—there are some really great replacement ingredients that allow me to get what I want on terms that are healthy for me. I’ve already got a well-documented love of ice “cream,” but I haven’t yet waxed poetic on vegan butter. Let’s just put it this way: I find myself getting a lot of Earth Balance’s buttery spread.
…Which is how I found out about the exciting Earth Balance Annual Bake-Off. All month long, you can submit your fave vegan baking recipes for a chance to win a grand prize of a Vegan Vegas Getaway, or one of eight runners up prizes of a $100 Whole Foods gift card and a year’s supply of Earth Balance.
And even if you don’t win, not only will you still get the thrill of seeing your recipe posted on the website, but you also get inspiration from other delectable entries, since EB is posting each week’s entries as it goes.
This week is all about cakes, then next is cupcakes, and finally, the week before Christmas is dedicated to cookies and bars. You can enter as many recipe categories as you like, just be sure to include a picture of your final treat.
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling ready for dessert!
