Meet Minimalist Baker

Started in 2012, Minimalist Baker is authored by Dana Shultz. The site is known for their simple and vegan friendly recipes consisting of 10 ingredients or less. Each recipe is perfectly crafted with instructions described in loving detail that makes it easy for any aspiring cook to recreate. 

There’s no shortage of baking recipes for those with a sweet tooth from apple pie sundae, vegan milky way, and banana creme pie. When she’s not baking delicious desserts, Dana also shares recipes for dinnertime inspiration. Get started with an asian kale salad and avocado toast and if you still have room left in your stomach, prepare the zucchini pasta.

If you made a recipe on the site, you can post a comment to a dedicated “I Made This” category on the recipe’s page, where you can share your feedback, tips, and rating of the dish. Perhaps you added an ingredient that made the dish more flavorful or took a different approach to preparing ingredients that was easier. Dana also actively responds to readers’ comments that has cultivated a welcoming community where readers can learn from others through their shared kitchen experiences.
