Better Know a Cupcake

This is the 1st installment of my 75 part series, Better Know a Cupcake. Today I am featuring Pineapple Right-Side Up cupcakes. The fighting Pineapple!
These are vegan, and they are delicious. My husband bought me a FABULOUS new cookbook for Christmas. 75 yummy vegan cupcake recipes. 75! WOW! I have lots of baking to do. The book is written by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. I have a girl crush on her. Her writing is so funny and clever. I highly recommend her first cookbook Vegan With a Vengeance. It is the only cookbook that has ever held my attention for more than 2 minutes. And it taught me how to bake. That is an impressive feat.

I know what you're thinking Why would I buy a vegan cookbook? I am not vegan. Because the recipes taste delicious! Shit, every meal you eat doesn't have to be loaded with animal products. It is good to have diversity in your life. And wouldn't it be great to have cupcake and cookie recipes that you could make, even if you were out of eggs and milk? The answer is YES.

Up next, Chocolate Mint Cupcakes.

I am cleansing. This is sad. I hate looking at cupcakes when I am eating pureed peas.
