why does it say vegan sugar? is not all sugar vegan?


This banana bread, in fact, did not change my life.

Standard self-rising flour replacement recipe - for every 1 cup of self-rising flour, mix together:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

For 1-3/4 cups flour, that works out to be:
1 + 3/4 cups flour
1-1/2 + 1-1/12.5 teaspoons + pinch baking powder
3/4 + somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 teaspoons salt

I didn't have self-rising flour, so I first added:
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
pinch cornstarch

The muffins weren't dense and moist, like I anticipate banana muffins to be.  I think there's too much baking powder.  I'd cut it down by 1 teaspoon.  Another option would be to mix together two cups worth of self-rising flour and then only use 1-3/4 cups worth of it.

For the second round of additions, I didn't understand the 3 to 4 tablespoons of nondairy milk.  At this point, only half of the flour has been added.  It's all goop, so I didn't know what consistency I was going for or why I'd add 3 tablespoons instead of 4 tablespoons.  My bananas were large, so for moisture, I decided to add 3 tablespoons of nondairy milk.

I made muffins instead of a loaf and baked the muffins for 25 minutes.  I think they'd do better being baked for 22 minutes.
