Vegan Brownie Update - and Cupcakes!

Just wanted to note that I've done a little more testing/perfecting of the vegan brownie recipe and have tweaked it just a tad more. I now list the cooking time for a double batch, since more brownies = more better.

And I wanted to say that HOLY CRAP I LOVE CUPCAKES. As you might have guessed, I've acquired a copy of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. Which is why you haven't seen many new ice cream recipes on my bloggy. I've been way too busy making cupcakes. And eating cupcakes. And sending cupcakes with my husband to work to give to all his non-vegan coworkers. And reading Terry and Isa's vegan cupcake blog.

I think I can justify this departure from ice cream by sharing a conversation with my husband last night.

Nick: Hmmm...would it be wrong to eat another cupcake? It's the last chocolate one.

Me: The cupcake is calling you! Eeeeeeeeat me! Eeeeeeeeeeat me!

Nick: Oh boy.

Me: You know what this cupcake needs? Ice cream. You need to put that bad boy in the microwave and then top it with ice cream so the ice cream gets all melty and runs into the cupcake and it's like some kind of cupcake/ice cream orgy in your belly.

That's right. Cupcake/ice cream orgy. You know you want it.

  14. Greetings from Nottingham,England.
    I'm just getting started on bogging ans I saw you listed under blogs of not. It's great to see more and more vegan "stuff" on the web. You have inspired me to order Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World and I can't wait for it to arrive. Keep up the ace work,
    yours, Kathleen

  15. Hello, Just found your blog! Yes, my husband and I have been sharing in the cupcake obsession after getting Isa's book. I can't even freaking believe how good they are!! Now it looks like I need to start making ice cream too.......
    Who says being vegan is bland?
