January 31st was Baking Class time for our brethren from Montreal, joined by around 70 other vegans from the community. Sr Vera Schiopu came from Ottawa to host a baking demonstration of vegan pastry and methods of replacing dairy ingredients in baking. She taught about how to make moist and fluffy sponge cake without the use of eggs or milk. After the class, there were several questions, followed by a tasting of many different recipes.
We have had a wonderful feedback and several people asked us to have another session. For the next session, we alreay have 30 people wishing to register.
Have you ever want to bake vegan cakes but you don't know where to start? You tried to replace eggs in your cakes but endend up with a flat hard rock? Here are some recipes that we are sure you will enjoy (moderatly we hope!). They are being nicely given by our sister Vera Schiopu, from Ottawa.
Raw vegan mint chocolate
5 tbs melted coconut oil
5 tbs carob powder
2-3 tbs maple syrup/ honey
2 tbs cashew/ almond butter
1 pinch of salt
1 drop natural mint extract
The Youth Department of the East Canadian Field Conference (ECFC) is happy to inform you that the next Winter Youth Retreat is scheduled to take place February 12-15, 2016 at Shalom by the Lake in the scenic Haliburton Highlands (Muskoka Region). The main theme of this year’s retreat is “You Are My Witnesses”.
At this retreat our guest speaker will be Bro. Adrian Finaru (GC Colporteur Department Director). We anticipate that Bro. Adrian will come together with his daughter, Clara, who is also a trained colporteur. The youth and children will have a unique opportunity to learn more about literature evangelism and the most effective methods/techniques of canvassing. We plan to have a health presentation by Bro. Milan Lasica (Medical-Missionary Leader of ECFC) entitled “Our Daily Bread.” As this seminar will be of a practical nature, be prepared for a hands-on experience.
Many indoor and outdoor activities are planned, as well as some more studious moments. Make sure you book your place!
