Vegan avocado pound cake cupcakes with chocolate ganache and sea salt

vegan avocado pound cake cupcakes with chocolate ganache and sea salt

Okay, can we talk about pop music again for a second here?

A while back, I wrote about a few of those songs you hear on the radio all the time and my myriad opinions about them for whatever reason, mostly to shit on whatever trashy artists I felt didn’t deserve their success and, of course, to point out that HEY SIA IS ON MAINSTREAM RADIO WHAT THE FUUUUCK because you just can’t not do that.

Momofuku-inspired vegan carrot layer cake with liquid cheesecake filling and graham frosting

For this post, I’m going to try to keep my own blabber in check. Because this is some intense shit. You will see that in the recipe below, for obvious reasons.

Until then...

Vegan pumpkin coffee cake with rosemary, cornmeal, and cinnamon crumble

Vegan pumpkin coffee cake with rosemary, cornmeal, and cinnamon crumble

Of all the fall recipes I’ve posted as of yet, of all the pumpkin recipes I’ve made so far this wonderful season, this is by far the best.

I kid you not. My family, ever-unadventurous eaters, may have been mildly disturbed by the presence of normally-savory rosemary, but do not let that deter you. The combination of warm pumpkin pie spices and cooling rosemary and the rich olive oil and hearty cornmeal and, by god, pumpkin! is just heavenly. I don’t know how it works, but it does.

Vegan meyer lemon crepe cake

vegan meyer lemon crepe cake with candied lemons

Yes. I am completely aware that this crepe cake is the opposite of seasonal. Meyer lemons, of all things, in autumn, in a no-bake recipe?! Scandalous!

But then again, Baby June has never been known for her dedication to seasonality, posting pumpkin recipes in May and hot chocolate in August and things like that. It’s not like the local Stop & Shop has any concept of seasons either.

Vegan salted double chocolate cookies stuffed with homemade caramels

Vegan salted double chocolate cookies stuffed with homemade caramels

Or: “In which I prove that I am capable of epic and spectacular failure”.

You should have seen my glee when I stumbled upon Top with Cinnamon’s stunning nutella AND caramel-stuffed chocolate cookies—my ever thought was consumed with Oh I could make vegan nutella! I know how to make vegan caramel! This will be super easy! Yay! 

Ah, how naïve I was.

Frito cheesecake layer cake

I feel like I owe you some explanation for this.

I know how you feel. Scrolling through your reader or inbox only to see a bizarre cake pop up, the result of someone who was clearly stoned or under the influence of some strange drug or maybe who was dared to spin a dessert wheel-of-fortune and combine the three resulting adjectives into one weird little bastard-cake. And it’s probably too much to deal with at whatever hour of the day you are reading this. I totally understand.

Vegan pumpkin French toast stuffed with pumpkin pie filling

If you are, have ever thought about becoming, or have known a writer, you will be aware of that special little thing that is coming up next month.

Yes. National Novel Writing Month, colloquially known as NaNoWriMo, that time of the year when closet writers break out of their self-inflicted creative shackles and put ass in chair to bang out 50,000 words of pure, utter shit (referred to as a “novel”) within 30 days. It is a caffeine-fueled feat of endurance comparable to a marathon. Most importantly, it is completely crazy.

And this year, I am going to win.
