Recipe: Hacking Trader Joe’s Boxed Cake Mixes! »
What up fools. Okay, this is some world-class, grade-A advice that I’m about to give you.
I’m going to take three things for granted (because I know they’re hella true):
- You’re poor - or at least you think you’re poor and I’m hear to tell you that you’re not poor if you can afford to live in the bay area but whatever pity party it up, i ain’t your mom.
- You’re hella lazy. Don’t front.
- You need vegan baked goods around the clock. Don’t front.
Well, all you have to do is get your ass to TJ’s and buy their cakes in a box. Right now they’ve got vanilla, pumpkin, ginger, spiced apple, and maybe a brownie? Anyway, just make them according to directions on the box EXCEPT replace the eggs with a vanilla or plain soy yogurt or a 1/2 cup of pumpkin. If they call for milk, just replace with your favorite non-dairy milk OR EVEN SOY NOG. EASY PEASY.
Works on all of those mixes and makes phenomenal cupcakes, cake, and loaf bread. Cheap, easy-as-shit, and just as delicious as any recipe I’ve ever made and I’m not an accomplished baker or anything but I’ll just say this: ALL MY ginger chocolate chip squares (oh yeah, toss in a handful of chocolate chips or walnuts or raisins or SOMETHING PEOPLE LIKE TO SMOKE THAT ISN’T CIGARETTES AND IS LEGAL IN SOME COUNTRIES NOT SAYING WHICH ONES into any of these recipes for added deliciousness) sold out at the SF Vegan Bakesale and nothing was returned SO THERE THAT IS MY MEASURE OF SUCCESS WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT GOALS.
Thanks to Karin for introducing us to this glorious short-hand baking. It is changing lives/pant sizes, one boxed mix at a time!
