Orange Blossom Citrus Mini Cakes with Lemon Curd and Honey Whipped Cream.

Last week I had the supreme pleasure of making one of my best friends an early birthday cake. The cake must be left for a different blog post, because this one is all about the lemon curd I made to go with it. Turns out my girl LOVES lemon curd as much as I do, and so I proceeded to make an exquisite batch of it, doused with ground vanilla bean and zest from a Buddha’s hand citron.

Post-celebration, I was left with a boatload of curd that I did not want to waste (flash forward to my spoon-feeding myself lemon curd whilst watching Parenthood #domesticbliss). So I did what any normal human being would do, and decided to make some orange blossom mini cakes layered with lemon curd and cream.

Pizza Waffles

Ingredients

  • 1 can accidentally vegan refrigerated biscuits (the ones that POP!)
  • 2 cups dairy-free cheese, like Daiya
  • 1 package vegan pepperoni (try Tofurky pepperoni slices)
  • Non-stick spray
  • 1 cup your favorite marinara sauce (for dipping!)

Instructions

1. Preheat the waffle maker.
2. Spray with non-stick spray so the biscuits don’t stick.
3. Flatten a section of the biscuit dough into a patty and slice in half crosswise (like you would a hamburger bun). If the dough rounds are too small (or you want more waffle with your pizza), use two biscuits to form each patty instead.
4. Lovingly place your fillings between the two dough slices, seal that bish like it’s pie, and waffle press that sh*t until golden brown (about 2 to 3 minutes.)
5. Aaand repeat.
