Golden Vanilla Cupcakes


Last Sunday was my son's birthday. We enjoyed a very good meal and also those delicious cupcakes. They are from Vegan Cupcakes take over the world. I received this cookbook not too long ago and did not have a chance to experiment any of the recipes. I have to tell you that I'm glad I did and will make another recipe soon.

What I like about these cupcakes is that they are light in texture, the flavor is really good with the addition of vanilla & almond extract and also there is no eggs in the mix. So you can lick your fingers, my favorite part when making dessert.

They only thing I found is that since there is no baking powder they don't rise much. So you have to fill out those muffins cups to the top.

To finish the cupcakes I glaze them with a buttercream frosting. Then I melted some Toblerone and decorate the plat with the chocolate and some strawberries. Everyone had seconds.

  12. My son really enjoyed his birthday and the cupcakes... He was counting them to make sure we would eat an equal amount of cupcakes. Being a good mother I gave him some of mine.

    I am not vegan but found good recipes in this little book. I'm glad I bought it.
