When I'm not jumping around like a maniac, I fall right back into the arms of baking.
Orange chocolate cupcake from Sweet Freedom Bakery
The process of creating something, even if it's simple and has a shelf life, is good for me. I like to bake because I know what's going into something and want it to meet my specifications.
My vegan spelt cinnamon buns are a treat that turns out criminally good every time. I always change up the filling to see if I've still got what it takes. Sauteed apples gave this batch its juice.
It's not a big secret. I start with the Vegan Brunch recipe and basically use 1/4 cup of both sugars and skip the frosting. I use spelt flour. The filling is usually fresh fruit to add back some sweetness. To even out the loss of sugar, I also bring the oil down to a 1/4 cup. I use coconut oil instead of canola. It give these buns extra moisture.For my next interpretation I will try the recipe using coconut sugar.
One day I am going to make them for Ciara for inspiring this post.
And maybe this dress.
