Vegan Vittles Muffins That Taste Like Donuts And Tomato Bread Soup
Posted Oct 06 2010 6:55am
Muffins that taste like doughnuts? What will they think of next? Ice cream that tastes like cookie dough? Oh, they have that, you say? Huh. And one last question. Do you write doughnuts or donuts? Because something in me really wants to write doughnuts even though I’m fairly certain both are widely accepted. When I saw the recipe for Muffins That Taste Like Donuts (page 62) while flipping through Vegan Vittles, I just had to try it! The name alone pulled me in. Incredibly quick and easy to make, they’re in the oven before anyone even realized you’re missing (if you’re like me and sneak off to bake, that is). Twenty minutes later, you have muffins that, you guessed it, taste just like whole wheat cinnamon sugar doughnuts. At 155 calories per muffin, as Ms. Stepaniak mentions, each one has only a fraction of the calories and fat in a typical doughnut!
I’ve gone a little bit Vegan Vittles crazy with week, and I’m not even finished yet per my meal plan, but I told you I was in love with this cookbook! The pages are just filled with recipe gems I can’t pass up. After enjoying a couple of doughnuty muffins, I turned to Bread and Tomato Soup (page 123) to warm us up on a chilly autumn day. I had never even heard of bread soup, but apparently it’s a popular way to use up stale bread. Why haven’t I had this before? It’s so tasty! Imagine crumbling bread or crackers in your soup, but instead of being two different flavors, the bread and soup are cooked together in one pot and the flavors meld. Perfection!
