I was so happy to get the opportunity to test recipes for Celine's upcoming zine! All I can say is, you have GOT to get this zine when it comes out- holy yummy wow.
I have been in love with everything lemon and lime lately, so as soon as I saw this recipe for lemony French cake with cream cheese frosting, I knew I had to make it. Unfortunately, I didn't have the 6-inch cake pan called for, and so had to make it in a much larger 9-inch pan. The result was much thinner, but still delicious.
In fact, after a day's refrigeration, it took on the texture of a cake-y lemon bar! I haven't had that in such a long time. Daiku and I might have even enjoyed a couple of slices of this for breakfast...
Originally, Celine had made these in the shape of ducks, hence their name. Unfortunately, I don't have any duck cookie cutters, the smallest ones I have are these angels.
No matter! These were so insanely delicious. Much better than cheez-its- and so much healthier! Even though I've been eating nutritional yeast for a long time, I have never loved nutritional yeast- until I tasted these crackers. But now, I see the full "cheesy" potential of the stuff- and I think I'm addicted. That's right, Celine has put the "crack" in crackers!
Here they are (perhaps I should call them "quakers" instead of "quackers"...?) served with some delicious vegetable soup made by Bridget.
Let's just say, out of the 60 crackers, there are only about 10 or so left- and they might not make it through the night.
Celine, you are a vegan baking wunderkind!
