Wild Tree Avocado Chocolate Muffin

For the past year I’ve been baking and cooking with grapeseed oil – not exclusively, but “on and off” in pan-frying and baking. It has a high smoking point, so it doesn’t smoke and splatter in the skillet, and I’m convinced its viscous quality helps lock the moisture into baked goods.   As far as health […]

Socca

Last night I made my first batch of socca, a dense, pancake-like, appetizer made of garbanzo bean flour, water, olive oil, salt, pepper and preferred spices (cumin). I guess it falls into the bread category since one might eat it before dinner or alongside a dish where bread would typically be served, but rather than bread, I found it to be more like grilled polenta….but denser, sturdier, less grainy, and with a hummus-like flavor. It was quite different, but I’ll reserve any real judgement until I make it to Southeastern France, where it’s common. Based on David Lebovitz’s description, it’s a pretty casual starter meant to be eaten with hands, among friends and preferably before sailing.

I wanted to make more chocolate muffins yesterday, but I’d run out of eggs. It was Baking Bites to the rescue, where I found this simple recipe for a vegan (egg-free, of course) chocolate muffin which Nicole had found in a cookbook on the clearance rack of a local bookstore. With a few changes of […]

Vegan Gingerbread Muffins

Vegan Gingerbread muffins

Since the tofu worked so well in the vegan pound cake, I decided to try it in a batch of wholesome muffins. Using a tofu-based gingerbread as a starting point, I added some spices, used oil instead of butter, changed the bake time and baked the gingerbread paper-lined muffins tins. Results? Very good! In fact, […]
