One of the most intimidating parts of going vegan is figuring out how to create baked goods without eggs, butter, and milk. Fortunately, the process is a lot less stressful than it sounds. No recipe proves that better than this one, which requires no substitute egg and uses coconut oil in place of butter. It is inspired by a recipe from Isa Chandra Moskowitz, cookbook writer extraordinaire, webmaster of the Post Punk Kitchen (www.theppk.com) and the woman who taught me the art of vegan baking —Gena Hamshaw

2 2/3 cups
