CHEF CHLOE’S first all-dessert cookbook, Chloe’s Vegan Desserts, will satisfy your sweet tooth from morning to night with more than 100 recipes for cakes and cupcakes, ice cream and doughnuts and pies—oh my! And you just will not believe these delicious dishes are vegan.

You can start the day with New York–Style Crumb Cake, light and zesty Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins, luscious Chocolate Babka, or decadent Tiramisu Pancakes (topped with a dollop of cool Coconut Whipped Cream). Here, too, are more than a dozen inventive, innovative, irresistible cupcake recipes, including Chloe’s Cupcake Wars’ Award-Winning Chocolate Orange Cupcakes with Candied Orange Peel, saffron- and cardamom-spiced Bollywood Cupcakes, and rich and boozy Chocolate Beer Cupcakes with Irish Whiskey Buttercream.

Chloe’s got you covered for the holidays with her Easy Apple Pie and Absolutely Perfect Pumpkin Pie, Holiday Trifle, Nuts for Hot Cocoa, and Pumpkin Spice Latte. She re-creates classic desserts and treats from Chocolate Chip Cookies to Classic Crème Brûlée, and veganizes store-bought favorites with her Oreo-style Chloe O’s, Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, Animal Cookies, and Black-and-White Cookies—which are better (and healthier) than what you’ll find at the grocery store. Chloe also serves up brand-new triumphs like her dreamy Lemon Olive-Oil Cake, Rosemary Ice Cream with Blueberry Sauce, Coconut Cream Pie, Chocolate Cream Pie, Coconut Sorbet with Cashew Brittle, and good-to-the-last-drop milkshakes. Who can possibly resist?

Go ahead and lick that spoon—there are no worries when you bake vegan! With gorgeous color photography, clever tips, and a comprehensive section on vegan baking basics to get you started, Chloe’s Vegan Desserts will be your new vegan dessert bible.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

If Tiramisu, Crème Brulee, and Coconut and Chocolate Cream Pie don't seem like vegan treats, think again. Award-winning vegan chef Chloe Coscarelli (Chloe's Kitchen; Chloe's Chocolate Classics) has made a specialty of creating easy-to-make recipes for decadent desserts that vegans and non-vegans can both crave. Her approach is innovative: Instead of relying on the same-old, same-old vegan ingredient replacements, Coscarelli uses tasty alternatives to sharpen taste differences. A trade paperback and NOOK Book original. (P.S. Chloe is the first ever vegan Cupcake Wars champion.)

Publishers Weekly
On a mission to “veganize” desserts, Chloe Coscarelli is back with a second title, focusing on sweets sans standard baking ingredients such as eggs, milk, butter, and honey. Over 100 tempting recipes are organized in chapters including “Dessert for Breakfast,” “Spoon Desserts,” and “Drink Up!” While gluten-free flour, rice milk, arrowroot, and vinegar occupy the ingredient lists, decadent creations such as Apple Cider Donut Holes, Tiramisu Pancakes, and Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake still pay off. The first vegan chef to win a Food Network Challenge, the author has included her awarded Chocolate Orange Cupcake with Candied Orange Peel recipe. A section on allergy-free baking and gluten-free options in recipes makes this title a fit for those with restricted diets. The lack of nutritional information and calorie counts stands out, but full-color photos and a clean design make this a well-packaged book. (Feb.)

Chloe’s Vegan Desserts


  • Dessert has always made my world go round. When I was in fourth grade, my teacher gave the class an assignment to write about our favorite sandwiches. While all the other kids wrote about ham, cheese, and PB&J, I wrote about ooey-gooey s’mores. In fact, it never even occurred to me to think savory, but I ended up getting an A+ for creativity!

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you will agree that the only point of birthdays is birthday cake and that no meal is ever complete without dessert. I’m almost always covered in flour and my guilty pleasure is eating pure melted dark chocolate with a spoon. Sound familiar? Read on.

SWEET MISTAKES

Almost everyone has a baking-gone-wild story in their past. One of my first cookie-baking experiences as a child was a complete disaster, and I’m talking far worse than a burnt batch of cookies. A lock of my hair got caught in my electric stand mixer and pulled my head an inch away from the high-speed whisk. My brother Andy, the hero, pulled the plug just in time. Phew! I don’t know what was more traumatic: the actual experience or walking around with a hideous melon-sized knot in my hair for the next month. The point is, if I could overcome this ultimate baking horror story and still face a stand mixer, anyone can! So, for those of you who think you can’t bake, let go of forgetting-to-add-the-sugar or smoke-alarm-in-the-kitchen memories. Today you can unleash your inner pastry chef! Don’t let the old adage that baking is an exact science scare you. Sure, you have to measure, but there’s more leeway than you might think.

MY SECRET TO PERFECTION

Many years ago, my mom and I underbaked a batch of vegan brownies we were making for a party. They were still delicious, but way too soft in the center. My mom, being the brilliant hostess that she is, suggested we call them Chocolate Soufflé Squares instead. Our guests devoured them and to this day, have been begging us for our “secret” Chocolate Soufflé Square recipe. I guess the secret is out! Bottom line: If something goes wrong in the kitchen, simply change the name of the dessert. Did the pumpkin pie not set up properly? Call it pumpkin pudding pie. Did you leave the peanut butter cookies in the oven a bit too long? Call them peanut butter crisps. Get the hang of it? Have confidence in everything you serve, even if it wasn’t what you were planning. Now, that’s perfection.

“YOU MEAN THIS IS VEGAN?”

Vegan desserts are made without any animal products, so they are completely free of dairy and eggs. It may sound restrictive to cut out milk, cream, butter, and eggs from your ingredient list but, using a few simple substitutions, you won’t taste the difference. Vegan desserts are perfect for children with allergies or anyone looking to eliminate cholesterol and saturated animal fat from their diet. Vegan baking is also a great way to practice kindness to animals, the planet, and yourself. If you want to satisfy your sweet tooth without busting your belt, look no further than my vegan Chocolate Mousse or Salted Caramel Cupcakes. Vegan desserts are naturally lighter and less fattening than traditional baked goods, so you can have your cake and eat it, too!

READY, SET, BAKE

Bakers, start your ovens! Let’s make some sweets. All of my recipes have been taste-tested and approved by vegans and butter lovers alike, so bake for anyone and everyone you know. Try this: Bake a batch of cupcakes for a co-worker, neighbor, or yoga teacher for no reason at all and watch how it brightens their day. I guarantee it will boost their mood and yours, too! Have fun and be sure to visit my online community at ChefChloe.com to let me know how everything tastes. Wishing you sweet success!

    I am not an experienced cook or baker but everything I've tried

    I am not an experienced cook or baker but everything I've tried from this book has turned out amazing. All our non-vegan friends were much impressed and our picky kids loved everything too!  So thankful for Chloe and her books, made me feel confident in my vegan kitchen.
