A simple pantry chocolate cake is elevated by an easy hazelnut praline and the flavorful addition of Vanns Hazelnut Extract.
Vegan baking is wonderful for those who don't eat animal products, but it's also great for people who want to whip up a dessert out of common pantry ingredients. There no heavy cream needed, no copious quantities of butter or eggs or milk in this cake -- simply a collection of ingredients that you likely have in your pantry already. An easy praline topping elevates the cake, and Vanns Hazelnut Extract bolsters the classic combination of chocolate and hazelnut. Not too sweet, and full of flavor, this is a dessert you'll be happy to have in your repertoire for an impromptu dinner party or nudge of your sweet tooth.

Cool peppermint and rich chocolate join forces in these fudgy brownies topped with creamy icing and chocolate ganache.
Making dessert for a crowd can be difficult. Something like a pie is almost big enough, but you'll have to carefully dissect it into tiny slivers to really make it work. A layer cake looks spectacular, but presents the same slicing problem.
This is a wonderful carrot cake that just happens to be vegan. It’s not a carrot cake in the traditional, layered cream cheese frosting sense -- this is closer to a banana bread with carrots, something to be enjoyed with coffee or tea, or toasted for a slightly indulgent breakfast.
Vanns Orange Extract adds a delicious hint of citrus to a classic chocolate magic shell.
This is our go-to cake. It looks humble -- just one layer, no icing, the fruit on top kind of burst open and starting to get jammy -- but once people take a bite, they’re hooked.
Are you sick of pumpkin-flavored things yet? Yes? No? Either way, this tea cake is for you. Rather than the standard mix of spices that linger in the background and provide a general warmth to a pumpkin-flavored treat, this tea cake goes big and bold with the spices, incorporating a whopping 5 teaspoons of Vanns Ground Cinnamon, 2 tsp.
Don’t be scared. This isn’t a case of putting tofu where it doesn’t belong in the name of “health food,” though I will admit that this version of pudding does turn out to be much lower in fat than the traditional kind.
This mix of Vanns spices, nuts, and seeds, toasted and coarsely ground, can add flavor and sophistication to a variety of savory dishes.
Subtle hints of classic pumpkin pie spices complement the sweet squash undertones of this perfectly-sweet pumpkin cheesecake.
