    I don't know, I've always made the margarine version... but I use oil when cooking the basic chocolate ones and they don't come out like that :S Don't know why they would... under-mixing perhaps? Or not letting the soy milk/vinegar mix thicken properly?

    Maybe I'll try the margarine version, and hope I have better luck with it. I'm planning to make rainbow cupcakes on Friday, so I'll try the other version then. :)

    Talking about cider vinegar. 1 tsp in a glass of fizzy water is an excellent remedy for indigestion.

  7. I also think their cookbooks are pretty funny. I really like reading cookbooks, and Isa's are pretty entertaining. :D

    I find that it will work with any type of milk, but it works better with soya milk. I've never tried with almond milk, but I have with oat, rice and soya milk and soya there was a distinguishable difference.

    Vegan Soups and Stews for All Seasons. It's been getting a lot of use lately with the craptastic weather we've had lately, and the no-chicken noodle soup is my omni bf's most requested meal.

    You weren't talking to me, but lots of difference. People often mistakenly think that more raising agents = more rise in your cakes, but actually if you use too much if rises too quick and collapses making your cakes very flat. SR flour is flour with raising agents already in, so in the UK people usually don't add any (or just 1/4 or 1/2 a tsp of bicarb) raising agents into cakes when using SR flour, so by using both you have effectively doubled the raising agents.

    It's an easy mistake to make though! I accidentally used plain instead of SR in dumplings the other day and it took me ages to work out why a recipe I use all the time produced tight, uncooked and tough little dough balls.

    Would the SR flour make the cakes doughy?

    I think if by doughy you mean dense and stodgy then yeah. Flat cakes = doughy and too dense, well risen caked = light and fluffy.

    I only use almond milk in VCTOTW vanilla cupcakes and they always turn out perfect. :)

    I've made those cupcakes once, and used almond milk instead of soy. They turned out delicious but quite oily. I think maybe I didn't let the almond milk and vinegar sit long enough before mixing into the batter.
