mofo3Haribol y’all! It’s fall and the baking bug has bit me. I have been doing near obsessive research on natural/vegan baking. I really enjoy eating whole wheat pasteries and I look forward to learning how to cook them. In my research I discoved some yummy vegan cream fillings. They can be used to fill donuts, pies, etc. Whatever you think up. I have not used any of these yet but I plan on it in the near future. Perhaps not during the MoFo, but while it’s still fall. These recipies come from The Sweet Life Cookbook by Marcea Newman printed in 1974.

Oat Cream

1 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup oil

4-6 cups apple juice or cider

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup concentrated sweetner (optional)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

Soak whole or steel cut oats overnight. Roast oats in 1/4 cup oil, until lightly browned. (If using rolled oats omit soaking.)

Combine juice (adjust liquid content according to texture desired.) and oats into a heavy pot, and bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Add remaining oil, salt, and sweetener if desired. Lower flame, cover, and simmer at least 30 minutes.  Cook whole or steel cut oats at least 1 1/2 hours, or pressure cook for at least 45-60 minutes.

After cooking, add cinnamon and vanilla. Blend until creamy and smooth. This can be kept several weeks if properly chilled.

Chestnut  Creame

1 cup sifted chestnut flour

3-4 cups apple cider, mint tea, or water

3-4 tbs oil, tahini, or sesame butter

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

Roast flour in a dry skillet until it begins to smell sweet. Allow to cool, then sift flour into liquid. Adjust the liquid content according to texture desired.

Cook on a medium flame, stirring constantly. Add tahini, or oil and salt.  Keep stirring until mixture boils. Reduce flame and simmer 15 minutes uncovered, stirring occasionally. Add cinnamon and vanilla, and mix until spice dissapears.

Does anyone know where to buy chestnut flour??

And last but not least.

Mock Whipped Creame

Blanch 4 cups almonds. Blend almonds, 1 tsp vanilla (add a little liquid if needed) in a blender until creamy.

  1. Yummy sounding ideas. I’ve heard about oat creme before and got rather excited by it – definitely gonna give that a try.
    I’ve never heard of chestnut flour.

  2. Oat creame makes me pretty exited too.
