In May of 2007 I self-published my book The Damn Tasty! Guide to Vegan Bak­ing. It was pub­lished on a shoe-string and was a true labor of love. At the end of 2007, I took a break from the cook­book and blog­ging to focus on some other things.

In 2009 The 100 Best Vegan Bak­ing Recipes was released, pub­lished by Ulysses Press.  This tome com­bined the 50 recipes in Damn Tasty! with 50 new recipes, cov­er­ing all baked goods from cook­ies and cakes to yeasted breads and croissant.

You can find it at Cosmo’s Vegan Shoppe, Ama­zon or find it at most big box book sellers!

In April 2011 my third cook­book will be out– Have Your Cake And Vegan Too!

    I absolutely love my copy of your book (which I won along with an apron!) and will def­i­nitely be eager to buy a new and expanded edi­tion. My part­ner loves your lemon almond bling muffins but even though he’s pretty con­ser­v­a­tive about what he likes I’m sure I can coax him into try­ing new baked goods too :)

    ohhh how great! 1/2 of this years hol­i­days cook­ies that I made came from your cookbook.

    oh! I can’t wait. The book is going on my wishlist.

    I am first in line. I use DTV so damn much.

    August already? I’m so stoked about this!

  11. lee ann says:

    Kris, I just got an email that my order is delayed. Any idea of what’s up?

  12. Mandee says:

    Hi Kris,

    I was won­der­ing if you use a lot of tofu in your bak­ing in the new book? I usu­ally de-soy and de-gluten recipes, so I just wanted to check before I order


    • Kris says:

      Actu­ally I can only think of a cou­ple, pri­mar­ily cheese­cakes. Maybe 5? Out of 117, not too bad. :) Yes, it would be sad to order it and if tofu was my stan­dard egg replacer. You should be good. :)

    I just got your cook­book and I am lov­ing it! I made the Choco­late Chip Pecan Cook­ies and wrote about them on my blog…is that okay? The Going, Going, Gone! Gin­ger­bread is in the oven now and the house smells AMAZING! I can’t wait to dig in. Thanks for the great book :)

  14. […] recipe for these cook­ies is from one of my new cook­books, The 100 Best Vegan Bak­ing Recipes.  I have only made two recipes out of this book so far but they have both been big suc­cesses, and […]

    I have a ques­tion about one of the recipes: Not sure how much milk to put in the Pump­kin Choco­late Chip Cook­ies… Can you help, please? THANKS!

    • Kris says:

      Ah, Kevin! I just found that error last week! Drat! It’s 2 tea­spoons. I’ll be start­ing a page for errors on the site soon… hope­fully not too many!

      Thanks for the support!

  16. […] goods. I am far from alone in this, I know. Last week, I made pump­kin choco­late chip cook­ies from The Damn Tasty Guide to Vegan Bak­ing and inex­plic­a­bly failed to get a photo before they were all gone. I’d put Halloweeny […]

  17. mihl says:

    I just ored­erd your book! It takes 3 weeks to ship to Ger­many and the wait­ing time will be hard :) Can’t wait to try your recipes.

  18. Mandee says:

    Just ordered a set of buttons!

  19. debbie says:

    I am mak­ing your pump­kin choco­late chip cookie. The recipe says to mix in milk but there is no milk listed in the ingre­di­ent list. I don’t know how much milk to put in so I guess I’ll just wing it. If you could let me know for future bak­ing I would appre­ci­ate it. I checked the web site but I couldn’t find it there either. Thank you. I really like your book.

  20. debbie says:

    I just found the answer in a ear­lier com­ment. Yeah, two tsp.thanks.

    Kris and oth­ers, I can’t seem to get the “You are My Sun­shine Loaf” right. I omit­ted the raisins and wal­nuts but fol­lowed every­thing else exactly. Both times, the loaf was wet and gummy inside. I checked the oven temp with a ther­mome­ter, weighed the flour (12.5 ounces), and got a good rise, but the tooth­pick would never come out clean (always a lit­tle slimy). On my sec­ond attempt, I even added 45–55 min­utes to the 55 minute bak­ing time but the loaf still would not dry out inside. Any advice would be much appre­ci­ated. Kris, thanks so much for writ­ing the book!

    • Kris says:

      Hi Bryan–

      I’m sorry you are hav­ing prob­lems with this recipe. Hon­estly, I have had to increase the bak­ing time myself and I seem to have prob­lems with the apple. When I was orig­i­nally work­ing on the recipe I used Granny apples most of the time, now I’ve been using other vari­eties and I think they have more mois­ture inside. I would rec­om­mend grat­ing more of a small sized apple (about 1/2 cup of apple) and reserv­ing 1/2 cup of bat­ter from the loaf when putting it in the pan. Let me know how that works and again, sorry! It’s weird to me that some­thing can get tested so many times and then start to act up.

      • Kris says:

        Oh, and I also have good suc­cess mak­ing this recipe as muffins, I think the dif­fer­ent sized vol­ume bakes dif­fer­ently. But now I’m curi­ous and I’m going to start dig­ging through my old notes, I won­der if some of the amounts of things got fat-fingered in the edit­ing process and some of the vol­umes are incor­rect from my orig­i­nal recipes.

        • Bryan says:

          Kris, thanks very much for the prompt reply and the sug­ges­tions. I will do some testing!

          • Kris says:

            Bryan, thank you for drop­ping a line about the recipe. When we went through the final round of edits on the book we had prob­lems with some of the frac­tion mea­sure­ments import­ing over, so now I’m con­cerned that when they did come over some of them aren’t right. Yikes! I will keep the ? page updated as I fig­ure things out.

    I tried the You Are My Sun­shine recipe also to see if my attempt would work out. I used a medium apple and squeezed out the excess water using cheese­cloth so it ended up pretty dry. I also decided to try bak­ing it in my bread­maker instead of a loaf pan. It still ended up gummy in the mid­dle still but hey, it was a worth a shot!
