Vegan MoFo Day 12: Favorite Cookbook

Today's Vegan MoFo prompt is all about your favorite cookbook. So I want to share a little cookbook with you all called:

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World !

When I first started eating at vegan restaurants years ago, I lamented the fact that most of the baked goods I tried were drier and denser than their non-vegan counterparts. My boyfriend at the time worked at a used book store, and he would bring home piles of vegan cookbooks. You can see some of my other favorites here.

Before long, we had discovered Isa Chandra Moskowitz's, Vegan with A Vengeance, and I realized that baked vegan goods could be not only tasty and satisfying--but absolutely delicious.

Despite being a huge Isa fan (Isa Does It is my new go-to), I only bought Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World a few years ago--but it quickly became an instant classic. I had been piecing together her dessert recipes from the cookbooks I owned for years--but this book distilled one of my favorite desserts into one packed volume. A whole cookbook filled with cupcakes you might ask? YES.

Some of my favorites:

Classic chocolate (oreo and peanut butter bomb variations are a must-try)

I may have made the oreo ones more than once...
vegan chocolate sandwich cookie cupcakes

Vegan Cookies 'n Cream cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World!

Red velvet (I've made these too many times to count!)

Apple cider

I also love the coconut chocolate with coffee frosting!

The variations seem truly endless--I still feel I've barely touched the tip of the iceberg with all of the creative varieties!

I'm not even sure what these are? Peanut butter with chocolate chips? Whatever they were, I promise you, they were delicious.

I've been repeatedly told that many of these cupcakes are the best cupcakes ever. I have to say, I'm very much inclined to agree! If you like cupcakes and baking, this is very much the recipe book for you!

Here are some marble cupcakes--yummy!


Ok--now go forth and get cupcake-ing!!



  1. I learnt to bake using this cookbook so it has a super special place in my heart.

  2. I have to say, this is one of my favorite cookbooks too. Like Vegan in Brighton, I learned a lot from it.

    "Go Forth and get cup-caking" LOL :D
