this is probably one of my best food porn shots ever. i've been messing around with a blueberry muffin recipe and i think i've found one i like. feel free to try this using different kinds of flour if you wish and report the findings. i call this gem the "fats domino blueberry muffin".
fats domino blueberry muffins
1/2 c. vegan milk-( i used so delicious coconut light)+1 cap full of cider vinegar, mixed together set aside
1/4 c. canola oil
equivalent of 2 eggs-(i used n-r-g egg replacer)
1/2 t vanilla
1 c. blueberries
1 1/4 ww flour
1.5 T baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1t gr. ginger
3/4 t cinnamon
1/4 t cardamon
1/2 t salt
3T earth balance
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. quick cooking oats (melt butter and mix all three ingredients together)
preheat oven 350. mix cider vinegar and milk together, set aside. whisk in rest of wet ingredients-(minus the blueberries) and add to dry. fold in the blueberries. get yer muffin tin out and line with paper-(if that's how you roll) filling each area up to the top-( you want hills baby, hills!) sprinkle and pat the crumbly sugary topping on the top of each muffin.
bake for 24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
i hope you like the recipe. i've felt just terrible about my lack of blogging. trust me, i've been in the kitchen playing around--just no time to blather about new things i've tried, and new books i've been reading. i'm still dedicated to becoming a self-taught vegan chef. my ultimate dream? to have my own vegan b&b. it'll happen one day, just not today.
so those books--mr. jewbacca has ordered "american vegan kitchen" for me, and i picked up a cook book my aunt-in-law got me for the holidays a couple years ago: "gary null's power foods". at first, i dismissed it thinking it wouldn't be that great because of the title. i'm not into healthism so to speak...it looked kind of boring. one day i was dusting the bookshelf, read the back of the jacket, and read that all recipes were vegan. can you say face palm? i felt so ashamed that i had not given it a try. i guess you can't really judge a book by its cover. needless to say, my nose has been in it for the past week or so and i've been trying some stuff out of that book. BTW--blueberries=power food.
reader questions: what is your favorite blueberry recipe? what cook book has surprised you and become a favorite?
