Tuesdays With Dorie: Vegan Apple Allspice Muffins October 13, 2009

Filed under: Baking,Muffins,Tuesdays With Dorie,Vegan — pastrybrush @ 7:00 am

100_2392This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie is brought to you by Kayte of Grandma’s Kitchen Table.  She chose Dorie’s Allspice Muffins which are located on pages 16-17 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.  I was really looking forward to making this recipe  and then I tasted a Vegan Apple Struesel Muffin at Ellwood’s Coffee, and it was fantastic.  I knew at that moment that I was going to try to recreate the muffin using Dorie’s recipe.  I also chose the vegan options because this month is Vegan Month of Food (VeganMoFo).

To make this recipe vegan I substituted canola oil for the butter in the batter, used Ener-G Egg Replacer for the eggs, and Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks for the crumb topping.  I also added one Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and diced to the batter.

I thought that these muffins would be a little bit better with some cinnamon added to the batter.  However, I decided not to add it to the batter since the title dictates that these be allspice muffins, so I refrained.  The final product was very moist and yummy.

    Your muffins look very wonderful and I enjoyed reading about your substitutions…always about the learning, and the blogs are great for that. I think you are right, the recipe lends itself very nicely to adding and subtracting ingredients to arrive at the perfect ones for you! Thanks for baking with me this week.
