“This is a cut-and-paste recipe from various other recipes I have. Since I work with a vegan, and I constantly bake for my coworkers, I'm always on the lookout for vegan-friendly recipes that don't require a special trip to the earthy-crunchy store. This one fits the bill, and it actually tastes good enough that non-vegans won't feel as though they're missing anything (which is marvelous when you don't feel like making two different recipes).”
