Happy Halloween!



I've come across a great recipe, shared by another fellow member of my Goodreads vegan cooking group (thanks again, 'Blueberries'! :) ) and had to give it a try right away! 
It is de-li-cious!!!

I've made a few modifications (replacing the real egg with Ener-G; also using only ~1 c of white raisins and I used vanilla chai tea -mixing it all on that very day, not letting it soak overnight!) and baked it for only 1 hour, covered with tin foil.
Oh, I also didn't have lemon peel but used Valencia orange peel (dried) instead.

Here's the original recipe: Irish Tea Brack

 After reading that the round form is more traditional, I went with it and it turned out perfect!

 It's truly a great mix between a soft sponge cake and bread!!!

Of course, at this time of the year a pumpkin pie has to be made as well! ;)
I used Lindsay's (Happy Herbivore) recipe and it turned out perfect!
I whipped up some coconut cream quickly (I've posted about it here: Coconut cream ) and it was the ideal combo!!! (Sorry no pic, the family was like a bunch of hyenas, all wanting a piece of pie, no time for pics! LOL)

Wishing you all a Happy Halloween!
Be safe! (Especially if you're on the East Coast! Thinking of you all and hoping hurricane Sandy will be gone soon!!!)
