Vegan Berry Rhubarb Danish
Hello & Happy Saturday!!
If there is one concept that I always overlook, it’s an indulgent breakfast. I typically stick to the standard avocado toast or a smoothie, but I love to break away from the redundant routine and go for something a little on the sweeter side!
One of map personal favorite things is actually a danish! From a distance it sounds intricate and complex, but they are one of the easiest things to produce as frozen pastry dough is actually vegan! I discovered that over a year ago and since then I’ve been seeing pastry dough concepts pop up everywhere.
Now we know I’m all for making everything from scratch, but if you’ve ever made pastry dough, it’s the most arduous and exhausting task. It’s one of my least favorite workshops I had while attending NYU. That being said, I’m all about some easy ready made pastry dough! lol
What I love about this concept is, everything! It’s heavy on the fresh fruit, features orange juice for sweetness instead of sugar, almond extract which is my favorite, surprisingly quick, easy, has minimal ingredients, holds up for days, and will make you look like a pastry chef at your next brunch!
