Hong Kong’s The Cakery has launched vegan-friendly options for the holiday season. Available until end of 2019, this is the city’s first ever range of organic, sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan baked desserts.
The Vegan Apple Pie is created using a combination of Granny Smith and Gala apples for a sweet, tart and fruity filling spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. The pie crust is flaky, buttery and rich, and provides a textural contrast to the saucy centre.
The Vegan Pumpkin Pie uses in lieu of the usual heavy cream and butter, silken tofu to re-create the smooth richness of the original pumpkin pie. Both pies are refined sugar free.
“It’s a pleasure to be a part of peoples’ most meaningful occasions. Our dedication to conscious living also gives me a sense of achievement — we’re actively making a difference to the way people consume,” says founder, Shirley Kwok.
