Sugar Donut Muffin and the LA Veggie Pride Parade!
I was looking around the Baking Bites website one day and I came across this recipe for Sugar Donut Muffins that looked really yummy and really easy to veganize. This actually does taste like a delicious cross between a donut and a muffin. I’ve since made some tweaks to the recipe, but I’ll post the original vegan changes that I made. They really are so minimal that I’ll admit it seems kind of silly to even do that, but I want people to see how easy it is to take a traditional recipe and make it vegan.
Sugar Donut Muffins
3/4 cups sugar
egg replacer to equal 1 egg [I use EnerG egg replacer]
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cups non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons non-dairy margarine, melted
1/2 cup sugar, for rolling
Preheat oven to 350F, and lightly grease a muffin tin with cooking spray or vegetable oil.
In a large bowl, beat together sugar, egg replacer, oil, milk and vanilla extract. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Pour into wet mixture and stir to combine.
Divide batter evenly into 10 muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. While muffins are baking, melt butter and pour remaining sugar into a small bowl.
When muffins are done, lightly brush the top of each with some melted butter, remove from the pan and roll in sugar. Cool on a wire rack.
Makes 10 muffins.
Also, if you’re in the LA area, C’est La V Bakeshop is going to be one of the vendors at the Veggie Pride Parade this Sunday. It’s sponsored by Animal Acres, and here’s some information from the parade site –
Vegetarians everywhere UNITE! Join LA’s first VEGGIE PRIDE PARADE and help make veggie history!
The festivities will begin at 11:00 am at Culver Events, where “veg heads” will register, enjoy a pre-march rally with veg entertainment and a special keynote speaker to rally the veg troups for our historic march. At noon we will begin a 5K walk through Venice with participants adorned with eye-catching costumes and thought provoking signs to educate people about the humane, environmental, and health benefits of a vegetarian diet.
After the march we will gather for a post-parade rally to celebrate the vegetarian lifestyle, with special guest presentations, music & veg entertainment, costume contest, and of course, a smorgasbord of vegan food from our area’s top veg restaurants.
So, come and get your veg on with inspiring guest speakers Karen Dawn, Rory Freedman, and other special guests. You’ll be able to explore great food and cruelty-free shopping with our Veggie Pride Parade Vendors!
It should be a lot of fun! For more information, you can go to this website. Hope to see you there!
