Searching for the recipe online (only found this alternative), I saw this on some blog:

Quote:
I have de-veganized this recipe from "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World" by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. I did this because I think the egg gives it some stability and a lighter tastier texture [...]

Stupid omnis... The cupcake recipes from VCTOTW I've tried all turned out light and tasty enough without "animal products" in them.

Well my Chocolate Mint cupcakes were a hit! Everyone thought they were delicious.



I know I should take the "You can't even tell it's vegan," or "You would never know..." as a compliment, but I think to myself, "Why, did you think it was going to taste like vegetables because it's vegan?" I just usually smile and say "Yeah, there's not much difference."

Nope, not yet. I've been trying to stay away from sweets and having this book I fear I'd just have to test out some recipes.

Heh, I understand. I am not really much of a sweet eater but my family is. After I first read this thread I had to have it! And they have been asking when I am going to make more cupcakes. I've been slacking!

Thank you for the link, Quinoa. Much appreciated!

I agree - all VCTOTW cupcake recipes I have tried have had a great texture.

I lend mine out all the time so that I can't bake cupcakes and then be tempted to eat em all...cuz once ya bake em ya can't waste em and it then becomes your duty to eat em...



See the problem?


Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

Not vegan, but I may make this into cupcakes:

There might be a way to veganize it...

I'm making an extra big batch of green tea cupcakes tomorrow for a colleague's birthday on Monday. He loves green tea, so I'm sure he'll like these. The batch will be extra big so that my husband and I can keep some for ourselves

I made the mint ones!











They were pretty darn good, similar to Thin Mints. Pretty too! The frosting is a light green, not sure if you can tell in this lighting. I used the macro setting on my camera, which is awesome, but I didn't have natural light.

Yummy! I just made those last week for St. Patrick's Day and I thought they were awesome Got lots of compliments on them too. I couldn't see the green so much in my picture either.

I don't know, I just grabbed one from the bag we have I used a disposable bag and a plastic tip, worked perfectly. I hate cleaning frosting with shortening out of a pastry bag.

I was going to take them to my coworkers, but I decided against it because I only had 11 cupcakes and I really didn't have time to frost them. Next week, I'm going to make these and another kind and bring them to work.

The recipe for the Mint cupcakes:



http://www.chow.com/recipes/10794



Just substitute the almond extract for mint extract.



Mint Icing:



1/4 cup nonhydrogenated shortening

3 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon soy creamer or soy milk (I used milk)

1 1/2 tsp mint extract

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Small drop green food coloring



Directions: Using a hand held mixer, cream shortening in bowl for a few seconds. Add 1 cup powdered sugar and a splash of soy creamer/milk to incorporate. Alternately add sugar and milk/creamer, mixing after each addition until smooth. Add extracts and food coloring. (I used a pastry bag to top them)



And for the chocolate topping, just microwave 3 tablespoons of soy milk for about 45 seconds. Take it out and stir in 1/3 cup chocolate chips until smooth. Let it cool for 10 minutes or so, then drizzle on top of cupcakes.



If you make them, let us know and take a picture!

Oh good lord I love this book! I love all their books in fact! I have only made three different cupcakes so far: Vanilla with Lemon frosting, Chocolate with chocolate ganache and the Brooklyn Cream Pie cupcake! there are so many more I want to try though! They always turn out so well and omnis love them too! They seem to enjoy them more if they don't know they're vegan!
