Vegan Muffins on Rachel Allen's Cake Diarys

A vegan baking recipe made it onto an Irish cooking show! I was pretty surprised when Rachel Allen, Baking extraordinaire featured a vegan recipe on her RTE Cake Diarys show. I was told by a few people about this being on so I watched it and got the recipe on line. I recommend the recipe a lot. The muffins were really easy to make and came out great.

The recipe called for raspberries. I used a mixture of the few remaining raspberries growing in my garden along with some blackberries I picked in the park behind my house. So resourceful and cheap!

Vegan Raspberry Muffins Recipe

The Ingredients

  • 225 g (8oz) plain flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt
  • 75 g (3oz) caster sugar
  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange
  • 150 g (5oz) fresh (or frozen and defrosted) raspberries
  • 225 ml (8fl oz) soya or rice milk
  • 50 ml (2fl oz) sunflower oil
  • 1 tblsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12-cup muffin tray and 10 muffin cases
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4), and line the muffin tray with the paper cases.

2. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a large bowl, then mix in the sugar and orange zest. Carefully fold in the raspberries and set aside.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients, then add these to the flour mixture, folding in to combine. Divide the batter between the muffin cases, filling each three-quarters full, then bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden on top and springy to the touch.

4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tray for 5 minutes, then take the muffins out of the tray and place on a wire rack to cool down completely.
If anyone has any other great muffin recipes, pass them on to me! I want to try make really big ones and ones to have for college breakfasts.

Nut loaf attempt no.2 and Raspberry muffins.

I gave the nut loaf another go today and it was successful and tasted great. I would call it more of a vegetable loaf though!
I wanted it to have loads of flavor.
I roasted some peppers, cherry tomatoes and sweet potato to add to it. I fried onions, brocolli and mushrooms in cumin, paprika and other stuff. I can't remember to be honest. Added honey, parsley, pine nuts, some cashew nuts and some soya nuts. Cheese on top! Too bad it was only me for dinner tonight, tomorrow's dinner for everyone else it is then!

I made muffins and they were goooood! I wanted chocolate chip ones but had no chocolate so I used raspberries instead. I used a cornucopia recipe so thumbs up for cornicopia.

No one is home tonight so it's just Lola and I. No one is around either to hangout with also. Booo. I'm to bored right now. Tomorrow I hope to go to the market in the park, Yumm.

I am going to Paris on Monday! & staying here!
