VeganMoFo is upon us!

VeganMoFo is the Vegan Month Of Food. Based on NaNoWriMo, our collective goal
as vegan bloggers is to write about food for the entirety of October. The
rules are pretty loose, and different people are participating in different
ways. You can get a list of all the participants here. There’s a flickr group
here
. And now they’re having Iron Chef Challenges. So clevah!

(borrowed from My Aim Is True)

In honour of my hard-core vegan brothers and sisters, i'm gonna share some of my favourite vegan recipes this month.

Introducing:

Carrot and Sultana Muffins, taken from Vegan With a Vengeance.
The Boi loves these so much (now I've gotten the recipe figured). The are low fat (without the icing), low sugar but still sweet and moist. Also really easy to make.

Muffins (makes 12):
1/2 cup of sultanas, soaking in hot water
1 ½ cup of plain flour
2 tsp of Baking Powder
½ tsp of Bi-carb
½ tsp of cinnamon
½ tsp of nutmeg
4 tabs of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup (250ml) of soy milk
1 tsp vanilla
4 tabs of vegie oil
3 grated carrots

Icing:
½ cup of icing sugar
3-4 tabs of lemon juice
3-4 tabs of nuttlex/margarine

Heat oven to 200C, grease muffin tin.

Sift dry ingredients (flour, spices, bi-carb, baking powder) and mix in salt and sugar. Make a well in the centre, and pour in liquids. Mix til barely combined. Add the carrots, mix a bit more. Drain the sultanas, mix them in too.
Spoon into muffin tins (fill ¾ full) and bake for 20-25 min, until a skewer comes out clean.
Cool on a rack.
Mix icing sugar and nuttlex together and add lemon juice til a stiff consistency is gotten – ice cupcakes. Yum!



yeah, camera still broken.
