Well we’re currently basking in the glory of being crowned the winners of Peta’s Great Vegan Bake-Off, which is all very exciting, and slightly overwhelming. Thank you to everyone that voted for us – we’re proper chuffed.
We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with another seasonal cakey, tasty treat! Soft fruits can be a bit of a pain, because no sooner have you bought them, they’re going off. So why not put your slightly squishy plums to good use with these spiced plum muffins, which are ideal for an 11 o’clock snack or make a tasty pud (especially while still warm from the oven). They’re also super easy.
Spiced Plum Muffins
150g Spelt flour
150g Ground almonds
2 tsps Ground ginger
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
50g Agave syrup
115g Vegetable oil
250ml Soya yoghurt (preferably organic)
150g Plums (stoned and chopped into small pieces)
A sprinkle of toasted chopped almonds
- Pre-heat the oven to 180C. In a mixing bowl, add the flour, ground almonds, ginger, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and xylitol and stir through.
- Add the agave syrup, vegetable oil and soya yoghurt and mix – but not to thoroughly because you don’t want to overwork the mixture. Stir through the chopped plums.
- In a muffin tray, place 12 muffin cases and spoon the mixture to evenly fill the cases.
- Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Pop a skewer through one of the muffins and if it comes out clean, they’re cooked.
We really are grateful to everyone who voted for us and we absolutely LOVE seeing you make our recipes.
I hope you enjoy these tasty muffins – do share your pictures with us on all the social medias!
