leaning tower of (vegan) muffins!

I made banana muffins to take on our trip this weekend:
I've been having better luck with vegan muffins lately. I find adding about a tablespoon of vinegar to the wet ingredients dramatically improves their "loft" and nice, fluffy tops.

Dan and I are brave -- very brave. We're going to venture outside the Twin Cities metro area this weekend, even though it's Memorial Day weekend and everyone and their next-door neighbor will be heading out of town, too. (We're hoping the traffic will be easier early Saturday morning??)

Stay tuned for pictures!

I've only made vegan muffins once... and the cranberry turned out a little bitter.

Maybe I should give it another go.

Thanks for the comment! I have to commend you on your "5 things or less" plan. I read about that recently and thought that would be a fantastic way to eat more whole foods and less processed junk. I didn't even think about the environmental aspect of it though, even cooler!

I agree with your addition of vinegar. I have started adding vinegar to a lot of my baked goods and even my pancakes (which become fluffier and lighter). We're going to head to Chicago in a couple of weeks and I think I'll take your advice and make a batch of muffins to bring along. Have fun on your trip!

Although I don't like bananas, I love banana bread, cake, muffins, etc. I'm going to try the vinegar trick. Thanks!

Those muffins looks so golden and fluffy. MMM

I would love your bread and cornbread recipes, thanks :] I haven't started my "projects," but next week is looking good.
