Vegan Banana Muffin




Growing up in Bangalore, I remember relishing bakery
items - fruit cake, cupcake, masala buns, bread
sandwich regularly.

There was just one type of cupcake in Bangalore
bakeries. Cupcake was also called as apple cake.
Cupcakes in Bangalore bakeries are without the
frosting. So they are somewhat similar to
muffin, but are called cupcake!

When I saw variety of muffins in a local bakery in
United States, for the first time, I was overwhelmed.
I loved muffins and always had store-bought muffins in
my kitchen.

Once I became a vegan, I started baking muffins once
in a while because I no longer get eggless and dairy free
muffins in supermarkets. Recently, I made banana muffins following
this recipe and the taste was superb.
I used very ripe bananas to make the muffins.

To know more about history of cupcake, from an Indian standpoint,
visit an Indian newspaper

Those look really great! My childhood was full of cupcakes, usually simply chocolate or vanilla cake, with icing and sprinkles--people always brought them to school on their birthday to share with the class, or for class holiday parties, or for bake sales... cupcakes and muffins are great!

Your cupcake/muffins look adorable! I love the colour. Funny, in Germany it's the other way round, both cupcakes and muffins are called muffins.
