Coffee cake and crappy photos!

This recipe was crazy easy and crazy fast. Sadly, I broke my beloved camera and will have to get it fixed, so all photos are taken on my iSight computer camera.

I followed the directions pretty darn close this time, except I used peach soy yogurt because the store had no vanilla. I also had no allspice, so I used a combination of nutmeg and cloves.

Betty Botta bought some butter,
But, she said, I'm vegan!

Coffee Cake pre-baking


Coffee Cake!

The first slice. It was served with a huge cup of Rooibos Chai with loads of soymilk.

Based on previous comments, I cooked the cake for only 30 minutes. However, it still came out pretty dry. I am hoping the centre part is moister. Oh well - just means I have to have more coffee when I eat it! I'm sure I'll survive :)

Considering how quick and easy this recipe was, I'd make it again. But next time I'll add a bit more oil and cook it a bit less.

Yeah, that last piece was kinda tough. Weird, how it got less moist on each serving! I do think the addition of fruit makes for a bit moister of a cake. But that said, maybe more oil as you mentioned and yogurt???

Where did you get your whole wheat pastry flour? They didn't have it at my supermarket or at Strictly Bulk.

I got it in bulk at The Big Carrot. It was even labelled "Whole Wheat Pastry Flour", and they had an unbleached one, too! I *heart* The Big Carrot.

I've always wanted to check that place out, but I've never been.

The Big Carrot has lots of variety!!

It's a little like Whole Foods (gentrified, upper-middle-class, expensive even as HFS go). Health minded but not 100% vegetarian. I welcome a store in TO like Michelle C has in PDX, Food Fight. It's totally vegan and I doubt the middle aged wealthy snotty foodies shop there. You know, the kind of people who wear fur coats to vegetarian restaurants. I've been run over by a few of those people with their shopping carts when I was an east ender.

But yes it's a nice store with lots of stock. Apparently it's way bigger now with renos. I don't go to that end much, we should make a field trip, Stagflation!! Meet Mishka for a juice!
