Boiled fruit cake.jpg


Boiled fruit cake (vegan) straight out of the oven. It has the most wonderful aroma when it's in the oven ; very wintery, very
christmasy.

Is that a KLS serving, i.e a huge pile ;) ?
Maybe, back in the old days, lol.

I can remember, when I first started working full time in 2004, having breakfast, then going to work and eating two donuts, having lunch with chips/crisps, then going home, eating a big dinner with a banana split every day and not gaining weight. And I was already 52. It’s not like I was a teenager or even in my twenties. WTH happened? :shrug:

I can honestly say I have not had a donut in 13 years. As much as I have failed in attaining 100% strict vegan eating, due to occasionally having things like veggie burgers with egg and whole wheat bread with some dairy and/or honey, I have not had any donuts. I bought one from an online company years ago, and it was not good. :no:

Luckily, over the years, I am finding more vegan baked goods in stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods to satisfy the cravings. And it's easy enough to bake cakes and desserts at home. But it would still be nice to have a real powdered jelly donut, a French cruller, or a Boston Cream. :lick: That’s what I miss the most...going on an outing and just stopping at a bakery or coffee shop and having a treat. There is no where to do that where I live.

My daughter has a diner, near enough to where she lives, that has an entire menu of vegan options. I love going there but I don’t get there often enough, at least not to my liking, lol. I’ll see if I can find some pictures of the food and dessert I’ve had there. They used to make the most amazing Napoleon but have since discontinued it. :cry:
