Haha! I saw that, and I was like "ugh, that is definitely a Vegan Pet Peeve."

My general, not particularly just vegan, pet peeve is when I talk about something I've made and people want me to retype and post the recipe. I bought the cookbook, I'm not giving it away for free, y'all.

I just was at the HFS getting stuff for pie.... asked if they had a smaller box of EnerG and the woman said something as an aside about how you can't make cake without eggs. I replied, actually, you can make great cake without eggs. Oh no, I can't. And on it goes.... I guess can now consider myself educated on the subject of making cakes. ^eyeroll^
[my response was that the people who buy and or receive my baked goods would disagree.... and I was met with disdain. So I moved along and didn't have a fistfight like i momentarily wanted to. Come on HFS, normally I love you, don't fork this up.]

Oh my gosh, this is peeve today too. I just posted a blog tour book review of Dynise's new pie book, and the first two comments were along the lines of "what, no recipes?!!" So annoying and rude. Plus, obviously the whole idea of the thing is to encourage people to buy the book!

I had to restrain myself from making a snide comment about the veganness of your banana. You're welcome.

You should have. That dude is my number 1 most annoying friend. And I'm sure his was a question of skepticism, not surprise, because he's just the sort of dude who would try to call anyone out on stuff. He was probably hoping for me to be busted and say something like, 'Oops, you caught me!' or just delete the photo or something.

Ugh, that is so annoying! One time i made an awesome cake filled with lemon curd. One of my friends was like "you can't make lemon curd without eggs." Really, cos you're eating it right now. I guess he meant more that it's not technically lemon curd if it doesn't have eggs. Whatever. Call it whatever you want. The point is that it's delicious.
I can't get over how rude some people are about vegan food without even realizing it. You wouldn't go up to anyone else and tell them their food is gross, so why tell me my soymilk is gross? And the whole "WOw! This is actually good." response. I know it's good. I made it. Either be nice or fork off.

I was recently on another forum and the whole "a cake is not a cake without eggs" was declared as gospel. All I could think about was this thread, and how I wanted to post "I could serve you a cake and you'd never know the difference." What's up with egg worship, why does that make it a cake? Never have I considered a baked good as achieving cake status only with the addition of eggs.

And yes, Annabazoo, I get the "actually" thrown in to so-called compliments a lot. "wow, this is good" wouldn't peeve me. Don't they understand how that "actually" changes the whole sentiment?

Eh, if what people picture as "cake" in their minds is, say, Angel Food Cake (and can anyone think of a better reason to sin than that air-filled abomination?), I can see that. I also have never had a truly accurate replication of pound cake, which used to be my favorite - the VCon one is the closest I've had, and it's good, but...not exactly the same.

The whole "eggs are essential to baking" myth is a complete racket; it's the biggest scam since that "I'll trade you Manhattan for a couple of axes and some beads" situation a few centuries back. Like all exploitative enterprises, it persists because someone stands to profit hugely from it (and we all know the chickens aren't doing any better out of this deal than the natives did out of theirs).

I actually don't mind doing this for people, if they're legitimately interested, but I can only think of one instance EVER where someone actually made the recipe, and sometimes it's just omnivore approaching me for vegan recipes to "try it out," not because I posted a photo of something they want to make. So that's pretty much the worst, typing out all that crepe and they never make it.

you know, in the convo i was willing to throw the other person the angel food cake bone. but then she started about the "special taste of eggs" in cake and i just wanted to ask her if she liked her cake smelling like omelets and full of chicken-flavored misery. but, the owner of the store is a friend of mine, and i should be big enough to just sigh and walk away, so that's what i did. [and then come and whine on the internet. i feel much better thankyouverymuch.]

I remember when I was explaining to the people who ran my CSA that eggs are the biggest lie baking and they had a giggle at that. But then I brought them zucchini muffins the next week and they changed their minds.

It's funny because the birthday cake I grew up eating every year as a child was vegan. It was a war-time recipe called Wacky Cake, when eggs were rationed. It's still my mom's go-to chocolate cake, and she's not vegan.

I'm not sure if this is the right thread, but I need to vent so I hope it is, if not, sorry.

I go to a Paul Mitchell cosmetology school. I picked it specifically because Paul Mitchell's stance on animal testing. I have HUGE love for their ethics and activism on behalf of animals. Unfortunately, my school is a franchise school, and I just found out tonight we're partnering with another salon chain that uses Redken and Elizabeth Arden products, and they'll be integrating those products into our school. I only have 4 months or so left, but still, I'm furious. I would have enrolled and just commuted to the corporate owned Paul Mitchell school in Chicago if I had known this would happen, and I can't even transfer to that school now because they're corporate and we're a franchise.

I agree egg in baking is mostly a racket but some vegan cake recipes do come out dense and awful (I'm looking at you, Whole Foods! though, I've had my share of cake fails too) and I've always attributed it to the fact that there wasn't enough of a matrix to hold the air pockets. If you use eggs, isn't that extra insurance that you won't have dense baked goods? Like, there is more leeway and the cake will still come out ok even if your proportions weren't quite right. With a clunker vegan recipe you don't have anything to help keep the batter fluffy. It's been so many years since I've baked with eggs that I can't really remember if I made accidentally dense cakes and if what I've typed is actually true.

this drives me CRAZY!!! i am totally one of those people who posts pictures of their food on facebook and then people are like "oh that looks great send me the recipe!"

so ive done that a bunch of times and it's almost always from a cookbook so i have to retype the whole thing and then i dont think they ever make it so i just spent all that time typing it for nothing. PLUS go buy the damn book.

there is one person in particular who always asks for recipes so now i just tell them what cookbook it came from.

and of course there's always the people oh that picture of the lasagna you posted was great! i made it but i put meat in it and it came out so good!

F YOU! i say!

maybe im just mean

HA! This reminded me of a conversation I had in England a few years ago. We were staying near a village in Warwickshire called Loxley (which is lovely, BTW), and after a couple of pints in the local (the Fox) we quizzed the barmaid about what we might be able to eat. Watching her process the concept of a meal without dairy products was simultaneously hilarious and a bit disturbing, because it seemed that the idea had literally never occurred to her. "So...no cream, then? No cheese? No butter?" In the end we had salad (hold the cheese and bacon), chips, and some crusty bread with a dish of olive oil so were fine, but I'll never forget the look on her face as she processed our incomprehensible request. In a way, the funniest part was that - of all things - cream was the first thing that came to her mind; even before I was vegan, it would have rarely occurred tome to eat cream!

people constantly ask me what the magic ingredient to "replace" the eggs is and im always like "uhhhh i dunno there's just no eggs"
i dont know what eggs do for baking but there doesnt seem to be a vegan "replacement"
im always like "well theres just sugar, oil, flour, etc. nothing replaces it you dont NEED eggs" and then they are like "is it applesauce?" and i have to explain that no vegan baking does not necessarily always involve applesauce. that is low fat baking.

geesh
