I was hesitant to try anything from Babycakes, the cookbook from the bakery in NYC by the same name. The person who had recommended the book to me had, in the same breath, told me that every Babycakes recipe she had tried had flopped. I also found a LOT of questions on the Babycakes website that were sent in by frustrated home-bakers like myself. Nevertheless I am always one for a challenge and I took the plunge.
In case you are not aware, Babycakes is an all-organic vegan bakery that specializes in gluten-free, sugar-free, egg-free baked goods. I’ve never actually been to the bakery in NYC, but I’ve been well aware of it since I became interested in vegan baking. It’s famous! And, from what I hear, pretty darn good.
I decided to try the recipe for Blueberry Muffins. One, I have tons of blueberries from going to the Reston Farmers Market last weekend and two, it didn’t have a million unusual ingredients and I had all of them already except for the lemon extract, and three it looked simple enough.
I followed the instructions EXACTLY as they were written – I picked that up that tip from reading the frustrated bakers questions. And guess what? These might be the best muffins I’ve ever baked!
Don’t they just look perfect?
Like I said, this is the first Babycakes recipe I’ve tried – as I try more I’ll let you know how they turn out.
