About this challenge

Whoever said vegan desserts were boring is in for a delicious surprise. Baked goods can be creamy, buttery, or indulgent without the traditional milk, butter, cream, or other animal byproducts in the mix! No matter who you are—a non-vegan, pescatarian, vegetarian or not—vegan pastries are guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. For this Challenge, we need you, our community of flavor-forward and conscious baking creators, to convince those who are doubtful about vegan goodies with your yummiest recipes! Enter the Vegan Bake-off Challenge and share your vegan recipes with the rest of the community and us to enjoy!

Is this a go-to for family gatherings, holidays, and special occasions? What about this decadent dessert makes it a crowd-pleaser? Don't forget to share all the required ingredients and the steps to prepare them, so we can all learn a thing or two! Lead us through the recipe and tell us why others should give it a try - whether they're vegan or not. Please be sure to include photos of your sweet treats so we can drool over your baking skills!

This Challenge is a splurge-worthy, dairy and animal byproduct-free space, so whether this is your first try at baking something vegan or an age-old recipe that's been passed down, on your mark, get set, bake!
