My friend Emma visited yesterday and with our powers combined we created these delicious vegan marbled cupcakes. Emma had brought with her sparkly red baking bowls! (Somewhat like these) I liked them a lot, as I am known for collecting red and white kitchen things :-)
Emma also supplied the recipe which had things like soy milk and cider vinegar and margarine in it. (Things I don't have much experience baking with!)
To my surprise they turned out wonderfully! Such an interesting velvet texture, almost like perfectly steamed milk.
I also made some vegan choc & raspberry cookies, my favourite!
Here is how:
1/2c raspberry jam
1/3c canola oil
1t vanilla extract
1/4t almond extract
1/2c & 2T cocoa
1 & 3/4c flour
3/4t baking soda
Stir together the jam, sugar, canola oil, vanilla, and almond extract.
In a separate bowl, sift together the other ingredients. Add the dry to the wet in three batches, mixing well after each. You may need to use your hands to work into a dough!
Roll out and cut out desired shapes.
Bake for 10min
Then add a little jam to the middle, cook for a further 2 mins.
Then add a decoration to the top. I stuck nonpareils on with jam!
