Vegan Pumpkin Couscous Cake

Pumpkin Couscous Cake
Originally uploaded by watchjennybake.
I have a bunch of vegan and vegetarian cookbooks in my kitchen, and time and time again I find myself returning to Vegan Planet by Robin Robertson. No matter what I try from this book, it has always been delicious, and pleasing even to palates that are not vegetarian-oriented. (If you have done much cooking using recipes from people who have been vegan a long time, sometimes this is a difficulty!).

I have wanted to make this couscous cake for a long while, thinking it might be a nice alternative to cereal for breakfast. The recipe includes pumpkin, tofu, and couscous, so it is filling and good for you! The only change I made was to omit the rum and to use whole wheat couscous. I'm not going to post the recipe, because I think every kitchen should own this cookbook. You can check out the author's blog for more couscous cake ideas!

The couscous cake sounds like a great idea! Not as great as the beignets below it, but much better for you!

What a unique cake..but where are your macarons/ I was so looking forward to seeing what you came up with. Oh well, life does get too busy to take part in every challenge, doesn't it? :)
