Vegan Baking Essentials

by Kortney Campbell on January 12, 2012

Vegan Pantry StaplesSince Katie is known to whip up a mean cake or batch of cookies on a whim, we thought it was fitting that she share her baking pantry staples. We know it seems like a long list, but most items are pretty inexpensive (especially flours & sugar bought in bulk and put in storage containers) and once you’re stocked, it is simple to keep it up.

The Pantry List of a Vegan Baking Pro:

  • Flour of all sorts- spelt, pastry, whole-wheat, all-purpose, cake, gluten free etc
  • Sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Powdered sugar
  • Baking power
  • Baking soda
  • Cornstarch
  • Sea salt
  • Dry Active Yeast
  • Coconut oil
  • Vegetable oil
  • Margarine
  • Peanut Butter
  • Ener-g egg replacer
  • Applesauce
  • Cocoa powder
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • We also always keep frozen pastry sheets, vegan cream cheese, brownie baking mix & mini phyllo shells on hand as well & have a few fun recipes coming up that are perfect for those last minute dinner parties or surprise guests!

With this list you can make pretty much any confection imaginable. By picking up a thing or two when you’re at the store, looking out for sales & slowly accumulating baking goodies, you can get quite the stash created without breaking the bank.  Once you’re stocked up, you just refill when needed!  Like to cook also?  Check out our Pantry List!

What are some of your favorite baking staples?

About Kortney Campbell

I'm Kortney; a wife, natural mama and vegan in love with life, food and all things vintage! I've been vegan since December 2007, but have loved to cook & create pretty things since before I can remember. I started Vegan Housewives because I don't think you have to give up the joys of food when going vegan! I have a fondness for re-creating non-vegan recipes (especially my grandma's), making a healthier & animal friendly version so be sure to send me your favorite concoctions by clicking our "share a recipe" button - I would LOVE to veg-i-fy them!
