Get creative - desserts without perishables?

briannajane67 | Jan 11, 2013 08:21 PM

I have all the basic dry ingredients but no butter, eggs, and very little (1/3 cup) milk. I find myself in this situation fairly often when I am running out things. My sweet tooth doesn't get the memo. I have sweetened, condensed milk, maple syrup, and applesauce. I know sometimes those ingredients are used for vegetarian and vegan desserts. Looking through vegan and eggless recipes, I see most riddled with soy milk, egg substitute, tofu, etc.- things I don't normally have. I have tons of baking ingredients (chocolate, coconut, shortening, spices...) outside of substitutions.

What are your favorite desserts when you should have gone to the store yesterday? Or suggestions on how to get creative with what I have? Thanks!
