This year Ben and I participated in the Symantec Fall Dutch Oven Cook-Off again. We’ve participated twice before (here and here) and won second place dessert with our vegan peach pie. This year, we won FIRST place dessert with a Scandinavian Almond Cake served with fresh mint and strawberry. People thought it was preeeeeeetty fancy and seemed to like how it tasted too! Needless to say I was pretty excited.
I did a test run a week or two before the cook off since I was veganizing the recipe and had a little fun. Ben and I both tried our own veganizations and we had a mini cook-off. Mine is on the right… I think you know who won. We went with his recipe on the day of 🙂
