Wanted: cupcake & muffin recipes with thick batters
Hi, can anyone recommend basic vanilla cupcake and/or muffin recipes that produce a thick batter?
The recipes I use (cupcakes from Chloe Coscarelli, muffins from 150 Best Vegan Muffin Recipes) taste great, but they produce runny batters, so if I add choc chips to them, they all sink straight to the bottom!
Coffee Chip Muffins from Vegan Brunch. I know I've included the chocolate chips in them and they were fine. Maybe try mini chips?
I figured it would be somewhere online:
Just scroll down. :)
would the base for blueberry muffins work for you? If so http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=11738.0 The batter comes out really stiff for me and drives me nuts but the results are so good I keep going back to it on a regular basis.
Does it have to be vanilla? I think a banana or pumpkin cupcake would be thicker and hold on to chocolate chips well.
If it must be vanilla, what if you sprinkled the chocolate chips on top just before putting the cupcakes into the oven instead of mixing them into the batter? Maybe they'd sink just enough?
