vegan cupcakes!!!

I love love LOVE this book. The recipes are simple and perfect, every time; I have had VCTOtW for about a month and a half now, and despite at least weekly bakings, haven't had a single recipe fail yet. Not one. Since I bought it I seriously can't stop baking and am beginning to fear for my waistline!

I would like to second another reviewer who pointed out that the recipes don't ask you to use egg replacers or other "substitutions" common in vegan baking (usually because someone is trying to veganize a non-vegan recipe); instead, the recipes are just designed vegan from the ground up, and call for simple ingredients that anyone would have (oil, baking powder, etc.). Also, there are tons of beautiful color pictures of finished cupcakes throughout, which is one of the most important things about a cookbook, to me. Then, too, they suggest enough variations on each cupcake recipe (there's 6 suggested ways to dramatically alter the chocolate cupcake recipe alone) that this book will keep you occupied for quite a long time.

Since every baker likes a little external validation, here's mine: I have gotten absolute raves on every cupcake I have made so far, and most of these raves were from non-vegans who were comparing my vegan cupcakes with regular [non-vegan] cupcakes. For example, last night I fed a chocolate cupcake with cookies 'n cream frosting (vegan buttercream frosting with Newman's O's mixed in... this is a recipe from the book, obviously) to a friend who didn't just enjoy it, but was absolutely WOWED. "Geeze, it's amazing what they're doing without dairy or eggs these days; these are better than regular cupcakes" was one comment that I particularly appreciated because most vegan desserts can taste good, but in my experience it's the rare vegan dessert that can taste identical or even BETTER than the regular omni thing.

I would recommend this book to anyone, vegans and omni's alike, because even if you're not vegan (or lactose intolerant), the cupcakes taste fabulous. The recipes are so simple they're basically idiot-proof, and I have seriously never in my life had better chocolate cupcakes than the ones I made from this book: moist and fluffy and ooh... just perfect. And I'm not even a chocolate person.

Anyway, do yourself (and everyone in your life who will be eating your baked goods) a favor and buy this wonderful book! I'd give it 10 stars if they'd let me...

Standard and Unusual Vegan Cupcakes

I was so impressed (and a little overwhelmed) by all the different flavors of cupcakes in here. The writers of the Veganomicon cookbook do not disappoint here! Expect standard recipes like chocolate or vanilla cupcakes (and even some gluten-free ones!) but there's also banana, coconut, espresso, green tea, etc. Have fun with this one! I really appreciated the section on how to fix baking mistakes (cupcakes fall in the middle, too mushy, burnt, etc).

Delicious cupcakes

My copy of this book is in terrible condition--I consider that a compliment because it means I've made recipes out of it so many times! I've loved every cupcake I've made from this book, and I get compliments all the time when I make cupcakes from here, even from non-vegans. Awesome recipes with easy-to-find ingredients. Great baking book for vegans and non-vegans.

Vegan Cupcakes

I'm not vegan, but WOW, does this cupcake book deliver some amazing recipes....I may never make regular desserts again. I highly recommend the Pistachio & Rosewater cupcakes and the Pumpkin Chocolate cupcakes.

Best cupcake book ever!

I have made quite a few cupcakes from this book and they all get me lots of praise! Ingredients are easy to find. Don't be put off the fact that they are vegan. All recipes are delicious and most are economical.

best cupcakes ever!

This book is the best. I love all the cupcakes I have made from it. There are many I can make with standard ingredients I have around the house. I want to make cupcakes all the time. And they're totally vegan. Oh yeah! Make them, and people will eat them even though they're "vegan." Chocolate peanut butter, double chocolate, maple, carrot cake... it doesn't stop! Try it yourself! Did I mention the awesome frosting recipe section?????
