Blogger has been giving me trouble today, so I wasn't able to put this all in one post.
I've been dying to try Isa's cupcakes since I've heard nothing but raves about them. And now I had the perfect opportunity. It was once again time for Christmas in July. (There is more about this event below).
I guess we all have our mishaps in the kitchen and I'm certainly no exception. I was making Lemon Gem Cupcakes from Vegan With a Vengeance, but something was amiss. Do these look right to you?
They were all sunken in the middle. Oh No! I'm supposed to be taking these for a potluck. So I started again. This time I mixed everything up according to the recipe again, but let the batter sit in the bowl for about 10 minutes before I poured it into the pans. And, I filled them almost to the top. This time, much better results.
To see the completed cupcakes and to learn more about Christmas in July...the rest of this post follows below.
