I am a terrible baker. I can make cookies, I can bake bread, but I cannot make cakes or pies.
But I decided to give it another whirl today.
I made Golden Vanilla vegan cupcakes from a drool worthy book called "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World" by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.
Fresh out of the oven:
Cooling on a rack:
My DH took a bite out of one:
They turned out pretty tasty. I was a little alarmed at how deep the golden colour is in these cupcakes, but then I re-read the instructions and realised I made them with margarine instead of canola oil. Hence the deeper golden colour. I think I'll try them next time with canola oil. I'm also going to get larger cupcake liners. These ones are overstuffed.
But considering how horrible my last bundt cake was, these cupcakes are a HUGE improvement!
