Cupcakes x 2
The recipe is here, courtesy of the ever-awesome Bittersweet. I sent most of these to work with my boyfriend last week and they were a bit hit. I followed the recipe for the most part, with just a few changes. I subbed applesauce for some of the oil, halved the frosting (I still had plenty), and left off the ganache drizzle because I was feeling lazy. Mine didn't rise too high, but they didn't sink, either - always a plus. I think I under-filled my muffin tins a little bit, though, because I got 15 cupcakes instead of 12. No one complained about the extras.
These are less exciting but just as delicious. Golden vanilla cupcakes with chocolate buttercream, both recipes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. I made them to take to class today, because college students are excellent for getting rid of excess baked goods. These were excellent, and well-loved by all. We are by and large a bunch of geeks, so the Spiderman wrappers went over particularly well.
