I've made them and didn't do anything special. They just worked.

I mean, that's not particularly helpful, but it might help you figure out if something went wrong?


I guess it must be my stupid induction cooktop. But it's able to make non-pumpkin pancakes, so I don't understand what the difference is.

I have to declare my love for the cinnamon fig variation of the East Coast Coffe Cake recipe. I buy dried figs to use in cranberry sauce and use the leftover figs to make this cake as a Thansgiving treat. It is ridiculously good!!

My husband made the English muffins at the beginning of the week and we ate breakfast sandwiches with the sausages from Vegan Diner all week. Terrific! Some days we did a spread of mayo, mustard & nooch, one day was with leftover cheezy sauce from Cookin' Crunk and this morning was with a tofu scramble.

I woke up Friday morning with an intense desire for the cranberry coffee cake I used to make pregan to use up cranberry sauce. So, I made East Coast Coffee cake with my orange-bourbon-cranberry sauce swirled in the batter and it was so, so good.

Made the Swiss chard frittata the other day, so good! Quite crumbly, but yum nonetheless. I fried some onions with the garlic before adding the chard to add some extra taste, worked really well.

I have a couple of questions about the cinnamon rolls: The recipe says to use an 11 x 13 inch pan. I don't have one. Will a 9 x 13 work and if so, any idea how much it would change the baking time? Also, I want to prepare but not bake them the night before serving. I'm guessing I should do the final rising right before baking, so how much time (approximately) should the rising process take? Any advice would be appreciated.

It's been a while since I made these, but yes, a 9x13 definitely works. I don't even know where to get an 11x13 pan. I don't think you should have to change the baking time significantly, but cinnamon rolls usually vary for me -- I usually go by the tops getting golden brown.

I couldn't get the pumpkin pancakes to work either! Such a dissapointment. We have a gas stove and were using a non-stick pan. We have been able to make regular pancakes no problem. I wonder what it is that went wrong.

Um, yes - so good, so easy, and so addictive. Just polished off one that was toasted, then smeared with homemade vegan butter and loaded with nooch. Before that was one with bitter orange marmalade. Before that was vegan butter only - y'know, just to really test them out before serving them to my family.

Why didn't I double this?! Pure shame is all that is keeping me from diving into another one...

I made the orange cranberry muffins (minus the nuts) and they are a major hit! I only had dried cranberries, so I plumped them up in some hot water first, and I ran out of oil before it hit half a cup, so I topped it off with applesauce. Freaking fantastic, everyone who's eaten them has loved them!

Okay, I have the English Muffins in the pipeline, thanks to this thread! All the feedback is giving me cravings!

So they look awesome, but they are more like supercute biscuits than English muffins, because they don't have those nooks and crannies that I associate with English muffins.... What did I screw up? How can I ensure big bubbly nook and cranny filled muffins next time?

What would you guys suggest to make and bring to a vegan brunch potluck? This book has so many great recipes, which one(s) would be easy to make the previous day or in the early morning and survive a short commute?

I was thinking of also making some cashew cream cheeses, so maybe bagels or something? I really like the sausages, too, but I don't know what people would eat them with...

I once made the sausages really small to bring to a potluck, so people could just get one or two mini-sausages. Wrapping them all up individually in foil was a pain, but worth it because everyone loved them! You could also make the mini omelets from IDI. I like small foods, I guess. I'd also maybe do muffins, because I haven't met anyone yet who doesn't like muffins!

The potato-spinach squares can definitely be made the day before and they're really good.

I've made mini-quiche using a mini-muffin pan and the onion quiche recipe. (The only recipe modification I had to make was to reduce the baking time). They tasted good cold and traveled well.

Any of the above, but I also really like your bagel and assorted cream cheeses idea. Do some savory and some sweet (ie berry, cinnamon) spreads and a couple different bagels....and make sure there's a toaster :)

Vegan quiche goes over so well - its one of the few things where I haven't seen an unfavorable comparison to the "real thing." Its delicious, fancy and easy.

Do you know what other people are already planning on bringing? Or do you have any kind of "assigned" dish?
