I think I've written about the Recipe Trial Club before, a small group of like-minded plant-based foodies — Dawne Eng, Terry Hope Romero and Mattie Hangedorn — who I meet up with once a month to share and test recipes. This month it was Dawne's turn to host, and she made her own amazing pure veg version of the famed Ebinger's Blackout Cake to share with us.
We all met at Dawne's place last Sunday to share good conversation and good food, including Dawne's homemade Southwestern vegetable soup, Terry's steamed veggie bao, Mattie's apple turnovers, saison (a Farmhouse Ale style of beer), Dawne's homegrown kefir water (fermented sweetened water) and the star of the day, Brooklyn Blackout Cake.
