twig boy cooks – vegan nut butter cakies and (soy) milk
‘Vegan nut butter cakies that taste good? Can it be done?!’
The other question.
‘What’s a cakie?’
The other answer.
‘It’s obviously a cross between a cake and a cookie. Think with your brain!’
Ingredients. Makes – 8 – 10. Preparation time – between 5 minutes and 1 1/2 hours*. Cooking time 8-10 minutes.
*This depends on whether you are using ready-made nut butter and applesauce or if you are really in a cooking mood and going from scratch.
1/2 cup (or more, depends on how nut buttery you like it (nut butter recipe can be found here).
2 tbsp applesauce (applesauce recipe can be found here)
3/4 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp flour (more if you use extra nut butter)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
ONE. Mix together all of your dry ingredients in one medium-sized bowl. Then add your wet ingredients and give it a big old stir. Make sure everything is included and given a fair mix.
Twig boy and twig boy cooks are inclusive of all. We leave no one out.
TWO. If you want extra soft cakies, place the mixture in your fridge for about an hour, or longer, it doesn’t really matter too much. If you don’t mind about the firmness of your cakies get ready to bake. Preheat your oven to 180c (350f) and line a baking tray with some baking paper/cooking parchment/ non-stick mat whose name escapes me.
THREE. Spoon your cakie mixture out onto the baking tray in whatever shapes you fancy, I made artistic ‘blobs’ but you might wish to recreate something a little more challenging like nuggets or splodges. There really is no limit to what you can do!
FOUR. Bake your cakies for between 8 – 10 minutes then whip them out of the oven, off of the baking tray and onto a rack to cool. They will firm up a touch whilst they are cooling.
FIVE. To make the milk, open the cupboard where you keep your glasses, select one. Go to the fridge, open it, grab the soy milk and pour the desired amount into your glass. Cosmic.
SIX. Scoff (you don’t hear that very often do you) all of them down in one sitting.
