It is Vegan MoFo III, the Vegan Month of Food, day 29.
My husband was looking for something sweet and went about going through all the cookbooks in the kitchen, in search of something with the right stuff. Let it be chocolate. He picked up Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s The Joy of Vegan Baking, and soon settled on the Hearty Spiced Cocoa Muffins. I’d never made them before and was all for trying something new.
When I think of muffins I think of something hearty, substantial, something with a little weight – these are light as air. Super light. I’d call them cupcakes. They’ve been infused with a hint of cloves and cinnamon, just enough to compliment the chocolate nicely. They’re like Mexican hot chocolate in cupcake form.
We whipped up some dairy-free cream and made our own spicy hostess cupcakes.
And they taste as good as they look.
