SNEAK PREVIEW; PUMPKIN-CREME CHEEZE-TUNNEL CAKE WITH CARAMEL SAUCE

Best Blog Tips Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

This entry will be short and sweet (in more ways than one!). I had a glitch this morning with my camera software and just wasted 2 hours!

Anyway, yesterday I tested this cake for the upcoming Vegan Feast Newsletter, which contains Thanksgiving and Christmas recipes, so I can't divulge the recipe. I've been wanting to do a vegan "tunnel cake" for a long time, and this seemed a good opportunity.

It turned out really well! The pumpkin cake tastes richer than it really is, and it's moist and tender, not heavy. The "tunnel" is a ring of tangy lemon "creme cheeze" (homemade) with chunks of organic candied ginger. (I might make more of the filling next time for a bigger "tunnel".) I topped it off with a caramel sauce and toasted pecans. Divine!

I just used a regular bundt pan, BTW-- didn't need one of those special tunnel cake pan sets. (That would be great for ice cream cakes, though!)

I plan to work on more vegan "tunnel cakes" in the future!

Have a sweet day!

I've never heard of or seen a tunnel cake. I'm pretty sure I'd like it... A LOT! I like the filling with ginger.

To say that your cake looks divine is an understatement Bryanna! That newsletter is going to be so great !

I can't wait for the next newsletter. The cake looks amazing. My mom used to make tunnel cakes all the time when I was a kid, but I haven't had one in years. I don't know how you do it, you always seem to come up with the perfect "veganized" recipes!

Yum. I'm trying to save up for your upcoming seitan book. One day maybe I can get a bunch of back issues to your newsletter. Your techniques continue to revolutionize vegetarian cooking. Not compaining, but the Lord has me on a budget, due to cutbacks. Sigh...

Jesuit-- the seitan book will be pretty cheap, since it doesn't have to go through a publisher, distributor and retailer! And I hope to have it set up pretty soon for buying back issues all at once or separately!
