Cookbook Review: Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World
The title says it all. As soon as you feed one of these delicious vegan cupcakes to your friends, they will immediately question why they’re not vegan too. And, if your friends are vegan, they will simply bow down and ask to borrow this amazing little book of best-kept-baking-secrets from you.
For the veggies that have been around the block, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World author Isa Chandra Maskowitz has also brought to you Vegan with a Vengeance awhile back (another fab cookbook review to follow). For those of you newbie vegans who still experience withdrawal every time you pass the cookie tray at work, then this book is for you.
I’ve fed countless friends and family members these delicious treats and have yet to disappoint a crowd when randomly selecting a new cupcake recipe from this book. My hands-down, absolute favorite vegan cupcake recipe – just in time for the fall – is the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cinnamon Icing.
Other recipes that I’ve tried so far and absolutely loved, include:
- Sexy Low-Fat Vanilla Cupcakes
- Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cinnamon Icing (humina, humina)
- Coconut Lime Cupcakes
- Banana Split Cupcakes
So, if you have a vegan potluck coming up and need a dessert to bring or if you’re sick of co-workers assuming you eat nothing other than rabbit food, pick up this book and get busy in the kitchen. There are lots of cute recipes and cupcake decorating tips and techniques for upcoming holiday parties. Enjoy!
