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 […]

Mmmm…bite sized brownies. Is there anything more portably delicious? Well…yes, quite a lot of things actually, but who has time to list all of them? Let’s stick to the topic at hand here shall we since I’m obviously talking about brownies today. Two bite brownies have got to be one of the simplest things to […]

Ok, I know I said a couple of weeks ago that I was willing to admit that summer was over and I should get on the fall train, and chew chew chew my way to more autumnal based desserts (well, maybe I didn’t use those exact words, but you get the idea 😉 ). However, […]

Anyone who did not get the Die Hard movie reference, I oh-so-politely demand that you watch this video asap (even better of course would be to watch the movie. Or movies? Farrah – remember our Die Hard Trilogy fest? (because it was still just a trilogy at the time….as it maybe should’ve remained in my humble […]

These were not intended to be blondies. Not even sort-of. The original intention was to make salted caramel ice cream fudge bars – not like ice cream bars, totally fridge stable and more like regular fudge, but with a base made of one of my more favourite-iest vegan ice creams (the So Delicious Salted Caramel […]

Yeah! A reason to use the madeleines tin I bought last year! I was really into making them when I first bought it (I think in the first week I owned it, I made madeleines like four times). Then I basically forgot about it, and have now opted to allow it a resurgence so that […]

I know I’ve a had few times on this blog where I’ve mentioned that I’m not always the biggest cake fan (although that is more because most cakes have one (or more) of the following issues in my personal opinion. 1. Too dry, 2. Too dense (but not in a good, fudgey brownie way, more […]

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.
