Recipe: Vegan Vanilla “Birthday” Cupcakes

Hello everyone,

I recently blew out the candles for my 30th birthday. Where did the time go?! The weekend was filled with family, friends, lots of laughter, and of course, plenty of good food! When it comes to baking for my loved ones, I go all out with flavor and style. But for me, I like to keep my own birthday treats simple. 

I love a perfectly done vegan vanilla cupcake. The light airy cake, topped with a sweet icing and sprinkles – it can’t be beat! There is something so comforting and special about it. I’ve been making these cupcakes for years, but I recently doubled the amount of time I let the soy milk and apple cider vinegar curdle. I have to say, it made a huge difference! I’ve never had cupcakes so fluffy! 

Give this updated recipe a try and let me know how it works for you!

Cheers & happy eating!

Jocelyn

Recipe: Vegan Pumpkin Roll

I also have a strong love for all things pumpkin flavored, and I don’t believe that these baked goods should be stuck in the month of November. No, they should be enjoyed all-year long. Continue reading “Recipe: Vegan Pumpkin Roll”

 Hi all,

So unless you’ve been hiding under a rock you’ve probably heard the buzz about the new non-dairy Ben & Jerry’s product line. It’s been selling out around town, but this week I finally obtained one!
