Baking from a Box

January 28, 2010

This Tuesday night I broke into one of our Christmas gifts, a fancy Stonewall Kitchen pumpkin raisin muffin mix from Crate & Barrel. This was my first experience using a baking mix since making the switch to vegan baking. The dry ingredients in the mix didn’t raise any vegan alarms, but it called for 1/2 cup of oil, 2 eggs, and 1/2 cup of milk to be added. I switched the eggs to three teaspoons of egg replacer whipped up with four tablespoons of water and subbed 1/2 cup soy milk. I was worried that the leavening wouldn’t work and the muffins would be flat. But the substitutions worked great, the spices were nicely balanced, and the whole thing was ready to go in the oven in 5 minutes! I only had one bowl to clean, too!

Would definitely use one of Stonewall Kitchen’s mixes again for a quick fix. I noticed that C&B’s website has some on post-holiday sale…
