Minimalist Baker is the delicious result when you get recipes made with only one bowl and fewer than 10 ingredients. And did we mention that these recipes can be prepared in 30 minutes or less? That’s the baking parameters and philosophy behind Minimalist Baker, where Dana Shultz and her husband John create vegan comfort food. Yes, there is such a thing, as evidenced by the decadent goodies posted on their Instagram account, which vary from cookies and cakes to donuts and shortbread.
