Our sweet owner and chief baker, Ilana Kadonoff, has been vegan for much of her life. It was her love of delicious sweets that inspired her to start Sweets from the Earth in the first place. Any treats that look or sound tasty, or which she remembers as being incredibly delicious, she can make taste just as good (and often even better) with all natural, plant-based, GMO-free ingredients.

Challah Standard Braided -Loaf-lo-resWhich brings us to her original recipe, vegan Challah. We can all agree that there’s nothing better than warm challah, and after giving up the egg bread recipe she enjoyed as a child, Ilana spent months in the kitchen experimenting with recipes, until the glorious day on which it was perfected. As with all our baking, our Challah is Kosher Pas Yisroel, vegan, and this special bread is also organic, sesame-free, and baked in our nut-free facility in Toronto.

Sweet Secrets is a series we created to share fun and quirky unknown facts about our sinfully delicious desserts. Challah is not available year-round, but may be special-ordered directly from us and picked up at our office at 234 Canarctic Drive.


Standard-Loaf-lo-res

We’ll be making Challah and Babka again this year for the holidays! As with all of our baking, they are kosher, and vegan, and this special bread is also organic, sesame-free, and baked in our nut-free facility. These specials are only available by special order, directly from our bakery.

Our Plain Braided Challah and Raisin Crown Challah were such huge hits over Rosh Hashanah, that we will be taking orders for Yom Kippur as well. Of course, as with all of our baking, they are kosher, and vegan, and this special bread is also organic, sesame-free, and baked in our nut-free facility. Our special Challah is only available by special order, directly from our bakery.

We also launched our new Cinnamon Bubka at the Vegetarian Food Fair and it was such a hit that we already have orders for Breaking of the Fast, and these too, can be ordered by Wednesday for pick up directly from our bakery.

For Yom Kippur, orders must be in by September 11th. 

From our family, to yours, we wish you a happy and healthy new year.
