Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

A couple of days back I had asked my Facebook fans a question about recipe requests, which is if they have any recipe they would like to see here. I got a lot of feedback. Poppy seed cupcakes or muffins, choux pastry, eclairs, yeast breads, pies, cheesecakes were asked the most. I didn’t have time to bake something as elaborate as pies, cheesecakes or choux pastry so decided to go with a rather simple one.

THE Best Vegan Banana Cupcakes

Unlike some people who squirm at the sight of overripe bananas I love it because I can try out new banana recipes. I was going through the list of recipes I already have and found that banana cake and cupcake was missing, if I don’t include the hummingbird cupcake which is a blend of lot of flavors including banana, coconut and pineapple and the vegan chocolate banana cupcake. Since I didn’t have enough bananas to make a layered cake I thought I should bake banana cupcakes. I drew inspiration from this recipe and made changes to bake vegan banana cupcakes. The cupcakes turned out awesome is the least I can say because it had an unbelievable texture, the sweetness was perfect and the banana flavor was mellow. I can’t wait to try this recipe as a layered cake and frost it.

Vegan Mango Muffins

I had some ripe mangoes at home and wanted to bake something with it. I already have a vegan mango cake recipe which I love to bake anytime. I was trying to choose between a muffin and quick bread. Muffins it was! I took some inspiration from a couple of my vegan muffin recipes and came up with this vegan mango muffins recipe. The muffins turned out pretty good but I thought it was missing some spice. Ground cardamom or nutmeg would have been a lovely addition.

Gluten-Free, Vegan Banana Applesauce Muffins

Gluten-Free Vegan Banana Muffins

I bought a pack of Cloud 9′s gluten-free, all-purpose baking mix from Costco to experiment with gluten-free, egg free baking. It’s a combination of rice flour, buckwheat flour, corn starch, potato starch, tapioca flour and xanthan gum. I tried my usual vegan waffle recipe with the mix and we all liked it. In fact my eldest son mentioned that he can barely tell any difference in the taste or texture. I tried my luck with a blueberry scone recipe but it was a total disaster. I can’t figure out what went wrong. So I had stopped trying out new recipes for a while. I didn’t want to waste the flour which is quite expensive. My successful attempt in baking these gluten-free brownies gave me the courage to experiment with the mix again. We had a lot of very ripe bananas at home and couple of boxes of unsweetened applesauce. I remembered seeing a banana applesauce muffins recipe in Canada’s 150 Best Diabetes Desserts books. So I decided to bake a gluten-free version of the same. While gathering the ingredients I also decided to make it vegan.
