Vegan MoFo - September 28th - Sweet Saturday (TOP SECRET)

My sweet experiment today was a recipe test for my next Iron Cupcake competition, so unfortunately I can't share it with you. I can tell you that it tasted just how I wanted it to but it didn't rise as well as I'd hoped - the tops came off and left the bases in the cases; they were a bit more like brownies than cupcakes. So it's back to the recipe to tinker and adjust - watch this space!

I did however receive some sweets through the post that I can show you! I took part in this month's vegan package swap from All About Vegan Food.

It's the first time I've done something like this and I think it's such a great idea. I signed up so that I could try new things and its certainly fulfilled that criteria! I can honestly say I've never had any of the items before (although I have had other products from Moo Free). Unfortunately, it seems that the postal service decided not to look after my package properly, as my hemp flour bag had split. Luckily though, most of the flour was still in the packet so I don't think I've lost too much. I can't wait to try the various things in my baking. I have no idea how the hemp flour or chestnut spread will taste so there are going to have to be some experiments! Yay!

Would you like an update on my sticky sourdough? It turned out alright in the loaf tin. It got a bit stuck and I lost some of the crust but once I managed to get it out it tasted pretty good. It just goes to show that even when things look like they won't work, it's good to persevere...
