The key to successful baking often lies in achieving the right consistency. \n\nEgg Substitutes \n\nEggs often make up an essential component of many classic desserts. Luckily, many vegan egg alternatives are available that are just as effective as the chicken kind. \n\n\n\n Silken Tofu: has a consistency that is very similar to scrambled eggs. Silken Tofu is very nutritious and can also be used in desserts that require a cheese substitute.\n\n\n\n\n\nVegan Egg Replacer: there are many vegan egg replacers on the market. The Protein Bread Co offers an egg replacement powder that is perfect for all your baking needs. It is also gluten-free and made from natural ingredients.\n\n\n\n\nBanana: the most natural egg substitute, this can also add some lovely sweetness to your baked goods.\n\nButter Substitutes \nButter substitutes are usually made from a range of oils to help create moisture and a uniform consistency when added to your baking. Luckily there is a wide range of vegan butter options available.\n\n\nCoconut oil, or coconut butter: substitutes which are made with coconut are highly versatile when used in baking, as they can quickly change from solid to liquid form depending on temperature. When a recipe calls for butter, just substitute it with an equal amount of coconut oil!\n\n\n\n\n Olive oil, and vegetable oils like canola: these options work best when used as a butter substitute in vegan cookie batters or doughs.\n\n\n\n\nPeanut Butter, and Almond Butter: surprisingly, these nearly always come in vegan form (but be sure to read the label!). Due to their richness and creamy texture, they both work well when used as a butter substitute in vegan dessert recipes.\n\n\n\n\n The Vegan Dairy Cultured Butter: is made from cashews and is great if you’re after a particularly rich, smooth, cultured European-style vegan butter. This is a delicious substitute and will work wonderfully in your vegan dessert recipes.\n\n\n\nMilk and Cream Substitutes \nToday there are a significant number of dairy-free alternatives that can be used in the place of milk and cream to make easy vegan dessert recipes. \n\n\n\nMacadamia Milk: the creamy consistency of macadamias means that they make a wonderful milk substitute. Macamilk Macadamia Milk is an excellent choice in particular, as it’s also sustainable, GMO, and cholesterol-free.\n\n\n\n\nBonsoy Milk: this substitute is made from soybeans and has been a great milk alternative for vegans since 1983!\n\n\n\n\nAlmond Milk: is also a popular milk substitute that is packed full of nutrients. In particular, Milky Almonds Original offers a great dose of calcium to help keep your teeth and bones strong.\n\n\n\n\n\nCoconut Milk and coconut whipping cream: is perfect for use in everyone’s favourite vegan dessert recipes, particularly when creating tasty cake fillings.\n\n\n\nQuick and Easy Vegan Dessert Recipes\nAre you ready to start baking some vegan desserts?
