Didn't see a thread for this book. Made my first recipe: Coconut Cake. Was good, but quite a heavy, dense crumb.

I've made a few things from this book.

The fruit pockets were simple and tasty because, really, how bad can fruit and sugar in pastry taste?

The peanut butter brownies were super rich and moist. I didn't do the chocolate drizzle and it would have been overkill.

I made the raw cookies with too many subs to really report on them, but they're good in theory.

The zucchini bread squares have been my home run, by far. I just use regular flour instead of GF, and every time I've made them for people they've been inhaled.

I made the lemon cake and the cranberry muffins, they were good.

The book seems like a straightforwardly veganized omni cookbook to me: egg replacer instead of egg, Earth Balance instead of butter, vegan cream cheese instead of cream cheese, etc. I prefer cookbooks to be a mite more creative and healthy on that respect, but for a decadent cookbook, it's a good one.

Your cake is beautiful! Dense crumb or not, it looks like a fluffy white cloud make of coconut and I want it!
