Swoon For Food: Finally success! It took me three attempts to get here and I just about quit the second time. First of all, I have an excellent chocolate cupcake recipe. It's so good and fairly easy to make that I wouldn't know why I would even bother trying other recipes. The problem is it's not vegan. Not vegan in soooo many ways. For my vegan-wannabe husband and all the vegans out there, I thought I would give it one more try. Okay, I know I'm going to sound like a total food snob after this post. The truth is I have been making a lot of cupcakes in the past year such as chocolate, vanilla, nutella, peanut butter, and red velvet cupcakes. Unless it's totally awesome, I just don't want to waste my time making it. To be fair, my bar was set pretty high before I tried my hands on vegan cupcakes. Since they were vegan, my expectations were pretty low but judging by how my husband reacted, my first two attempts at vegan chocolate cupcakes were failures. In my first attempt, I browsed the Internet and found one called World's Best Vegan Chocolate Cupcake. When I made it I was hugely impressed by how light and moist it was. It wasn't very sweet though and didn't have a lot of taste. The cupcake left a funny aftertaste in my mouth. I think it was all the baking soda and baking powder in the recipe. A typical replacement for eggs in bakes is baking soda and vinegar so I could see why you would be able to taste this more. My husband's not so kind reaction to the cupcake was "No good. For my second attempt, I thought I would try a trusted source. Sweetapolita is all about sweets and when I saw the site posted a vegan chocolate cupcake recipe, I knew I had to try it.
