I hate to even ask, but...

...is that angel food cake clip art under the July 4th tab vegan?  If so, I need that recipe!

lol highly doubt it.

I haven't found the source of the stock image yet.
But it was on this site

But, I did find this recipe http://affectioknit.blogspot.com/2010/01/vegan-angel-food-cake.html
It's the only one I've seen that seems to have good reviews (even though most are just people saying they have to try it)

I read through the recipe.  What it in enerG?  The concept behind how a regular angel food cake works is the proteins in the egg whites form the structure that supports the cake.  I am trying to figure out how that can be done without egg whites.

ener-g egg replacer is a starch blend that works as a binding agent like eggs. i don't know if you'll get quite the same effect as eggs, but there are a couple starch blends out there used for stuff like meringues and marshmallows now.

I suspect it was a case of "hope springs eternal".  Now I am wondering how an starch based egg substitute would affect blood sugar levels in a diabetic or if in the case of angelfood cake, there is still so much air in it that the sugar/starch content in a reasonable serving is not so bad.

i like how vegnews promised not to use non-vegan pictures in the magazine but they will use them on their website? ummm.. NOT OK.

it suggests that the non-vegan foods are the standard, better-looking version. This may even be true, but for people who are vegan for ethical reasons and make an effort to make alternatives to animal products, it's a bit insulting to use photos of non-vegan food to advertise the site or recipes.

Precisely!  What about Tess' recipe for raw fruity bars that was recently posted?  Keda took a gorgeous pic of a 100% vegan recipe, created by one of our regular posters!

SB, if you weren't gay, and I wasn't already hitched, I would SO marry you.  

eta:  I checked with the husband, and he's okay with all of us being married together.

I was thinking about the same thing after reading SB's recipe for naan.  Only my DH would not agree with the idea.

I support polyamory, and wish you all well!

Regarding egg replacers, this works better than Ener-G imo, & is way cheaper: http://www.veganbaking.net/vegan-recipes/eggless-binders/eggless-binder-powder.html

If you make a full batch, it fills 2 14-oz Bell jars, and lasts for months... for anything baked, it's perfect; only caveat is that (like Ener-G? not sure) it doesn't work as well for griddle recipes such as pancakes... but if I were gonna try angel food cake, that's what I'd use.

If you find a recipe that works well, be sure to share with the class!

Hahaha, soooo many people have said that they should use Kedas photos and make her their food photographer. It would be perfect.

Ener G is not vegan?

Wait, that's not what I meant-- as far as I know it is vegan!-- I just think the 'eggless binder powder' bakes better/ works better, and is definitely cheaper... sorry for causing confusion!  :)
