1. Going into fall, I knew I had to add some seasonal items to the menu. Everyone goes a little weirdly crazy for pumpkin spice lattes (which are not vegan), so it wasn’t surprising when the people clamored for pumpkin cake. This one that I came up with is very heavy on the spice end, with a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves; the pumpkin provides color, moisture, and background flavor. This spicy warmth makes it fall perfect.
