Have you been thinking to yourself recently “I just don’t have enough peanut butter in my life?” I mean sure, you can put it on toast, and I’m sure you’ve consumed the odd peanut butter ball, but have you found yourself in the position of thinking “Yeah, that’s enough peanut butter”? Because it never is […]

It’s the final week! I can’t believe it, April went by so fast. So many more things I would’ve made, but I should maybe save some things so that I can possibly do this again next year since I enjoyed myself so much (hopefully I wasn’t the only one?). And if I can’t wait quite that […]

This week is hands down the best tasting of my “trompe l’oeil” desserts to date. The pound cake I used for the sandwich “bread” was amazing. I think the loaf of pound cake was actually supposed to be much larger then it ended up being. Possibly because I kept tasting the raw batter and “accidentally” […]

I thought that these whoopie pies looked the most visually festive so what better cookie to post for Christmas day? I know, I can’t believe I’m still on top of this and am actually posting on Christmas day either. Go me! #humblebrag (side note (warning!! loooonnnnggg side note 😉 ), I have no idea why I […]

We’ve made it! It’s the final week for game of scones 😉 . For this final huzzah, I’m bringing you the second savoury scone. Please don’t get angry with me for this. There will be peanut butter, and crusty scones, and spiciness (you know, to spice up your life à la Spice Girls. Oh the […]

So I have about a million apples in my fridge, so apple cinnamon scones definitely seemed like a way to go. To amp these up a little though, I added a whole whack of your traditional chai spice spices as well and thus we have some delectable Glazed Apple Chai Scones. Oh the memories. Anywho, […]

Terrible, terrible pun. It works for both what I made this week and as a description of the trouble I was having coming up with a pun. However, for those of you who were up in arms last week waving around your fiery pitchforks in protest over how a savoury, olive-studded baked good made it’s […]

This was originally intended to be a one off post for scones. My decision making abilities being absolute nil however “forced” me to turn this into a themed month. What could I do? You see, I’ve never made scones in my life (and though I find them absolutely delicious, I’ve only even eaten them a […]

Yes, you read that title right, and no, this is not a savoury concoction. The idea for these, as with many baked goods for me, came from all my previous experimentation with aquafaba (aka the brine from canned chickpeas). I got a little overzealous on that front, and many, many cans of chickpeas later, I […]

About Amber

Amber Profile

Hi, I'm Amber Trudeau.  I bake.... a lot.

I'm also vegan, and found that whenever I went out to a restaurant my dessert choices were limited to sorbet, sorbet, and sorbet.  So I started making my own desserts. I wanted them to taste good though - so my ultimatum was to make delicious desserts that also happen to be dairy-free and egg-free. Every week or so, I challenge myself to try something new.  To recreate some kind of traditional dessert that tastes amazing without using animal products.
