“The Big Bang Theory” actress Mayim Bialik showed off her vegan cooking skills today by releasing this vegan Rosh Hashanah Honey Cake recipe. If you’re celebrating the Jewish holiday, which begins at sundown on Sunday, Sept. 16, then this might be the recipe for you.
Vegan Honey Cake
2 egg equivalents (I use Ener-G egg replacer)
3/4 cup agave
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cocoa
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups sifted flour
1 cup strong coffee (I use Turkish)
Combine egg replacer, agave, sugar and oil.
Mix in dry ingredients, alternating with coffee. Beat 5 minutes.
Pour into greased pan (I like 9? round) – (usually makes enough batter for two 8-inch round)
Bake at 375 degrees until done. I generally check it after 20 minutes, then every 10 minutes until a pick inserted in the middle comes out clean–roughly 40 minutes.
This seems to be a little preview of what Bialik has in store for us when she releases her very first plant-based vegan family cookbook, which she happily announced last week.
Bialik also posted a link for other Rosh Hashanah recipes. Check them out here.
