San Francisco-based Pinkie's Bakery
(a wholesaler and creator of wedding cakes) is not an exclusively vegan company. But proprietor Cheryl Burr makes some outstanding dairy-free options, such as the passion fruit cheesecake bar ($3 at Rainbow Grocery
, 1745 Folsom at 13th). She captures a vegan-elusive creaminess -- though without an ingredient list, we're not sure exactly how
-- and a nice tangy fruit flavor.
And the crust? I can't believe it's not butter.
