In Incredible Plant-Based Desserts, Instagram star Anthea Cheng (@rainbownourishments) shares her trade-secret recipes for seriously luscious, showstopping vegan sweet treats that will delight everyone, from healthy eaters pursuing a plant-based diet to those who simply appreciate a beautifully crafted dessert.
Whether you are an eager home cook or a more experienced chef, Anthea shows you that sponge cakes can still be fluffy and moist and pastry can still melt in your mouth without animal-derived ingredients.
Find playful, modern spins on classic desserts, such as fail-safe tiramisu trifles topped with caramelized popcorn or Snickers transformed into a multi-layered cake with peanut brittle. For when life gets busy, simplify with recipes like three-ingredient pancakes and fruit-filled muffins.
Anthea has carefully selected ingredients to ensure you won't accumulate odd, once-used stuff in your pantry. And with plenty of options for people avoiding gluten, refined sugar, nuts, and other common allergens, no one misses out on the deliciousness. All of the recipes have been tested and approved by vegans and non-vegans alike.
