Vegan Cupcakes take over Halloween
I spent most of Halloween in the kitchen. I bought Halloween cupcake liners at World Market last week and decided to put them to good use today. I made 3 dozen cupcakes- 2 for H to bring into the office and the other split between home and my office.
I experimented with gluten free baking today. Surprisingly, they came out really well. I bought tapioca flour and white rice flour, both of which were available at the local Jewel. They did not have quinoa flour, so I made that myself by grinding up quinoa in the blender. They look normal- I was concerned about the texture. They have a bit of an added crunch, but they taste just like regular cupcakes.
I also made a basic yellow cupcake and a chocolate vanilla marble cupcake. All from Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero’s Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World, my favorite cookbook.
