I have done quite a lot this week and it does not look like it is going to slow down for next week!
Let's starts with a big batch of cupcakes made for the departure of one of my co-workers.
I made three different types of Vegan Cupakes and one non-Vegan.
Let's start with the Vegan Ones:
First, we have The Peanut Butter Cupcakes:
As a french person, I never actually had Peanut Butter before or used it.
If you love peanut butter, you will LOVE these. If you don't really like it, you might find it a bit much: the taste is really strong.
Personally, I loved them. The chocolate on top really suits the rest of the cupcakes.
Next time, I might try to put some chocolate chips inside the actual cupcakes.
Next, we have:
The Apple Cider Cupcakes
Making these was great! My entire kitchen smelled AMAZING: to make these, you have to put together, in a little pan: Apple cider,Cinnamon sticks, Cloves, Allspice and Agar powder and bring the whole mixture to boil.
It smelled like Xmas for me: it reminded me of the smell of Mulled Wine that we used to make on Xmas day in England.
I was really hoping that all these beautifuls smells would translate in the taste and it really did!
The Crimson Velveteen Cupcakes
I never had a Red Velvet Cupcake before so I really did not know what it was meant to taste like.
If they are meant to taste like these: Man, I understand why it is an American favourite!
And, let's not forget the NON-Vegan cupcake:
The BRETON Cupcake
I wanted to make a BRETON inspired cupcake:
The cupcake is a base on the "Gâteau au Yaourt" recipe (yogurt cake), then we have a Caramel au beurre salé center (salted caramel), then i covered the cake with the same Caramel and Palet Breton crumbs (Breton biscuits).
Here we go!
I will make a post later on about the book that I use to make these VEGAN Cupcakes.
