  1. These are little orbs from heaven. SOOOO YUMMY!!! My son who is picky requested I save the recipe. It's that good. Very maply. Would recommend maybe adding toasted pecans if possible next time. I love it.
  2. These are nice little muffins, and such a change of pace for us. The maple flavor was subtle but nice and the texture was delicate and perfect--despite the fact that I used half spelt flour and half white wheat. I forgot to change the baking time/temp, and wish I hadn't as they came out a bit tough on the outside. I will definitely make these again, though. Thanks for posting! Made for Veg*n Swap July 2010.
  3. Nice muffins! I followed Syd's and Annacia's recommendations for the baking temp and time and they came out great. I also cheated and used pancake-type maple syrup. Reviewed for the Veg*n Recipe Swap.
  4. Another good one for my collection! JUST made these...boy, are they good warm! I want to break one open and drizzle more maple syrup on it! I used the "pure" stuff and I used only 1/4 tsp. salt and 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder in an attempt to lower the sodium level. I don't think it made any appreciable difference. This batch took exactly 20 minutes. Next time, I think I'll sprinkle a few chopped pecans over the batter before baking! I might also see what a little applesauce will do-maybe lighten them up just a bit? Regardless, a keeper!
  5. Took Annacia's suggestons ~ lowered the oven temperature & actually baked them for a little more than 21 minutes! THEY HAVE A REALLY GREAT TASTE! Amongst 4 of us there was only 1 muffin left after about half an hour! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while touring Canada on the Zaar World Tour 4]


I am originally from the Philadelphia area of the United States but have been living in London, UK since 1996. I now have dual American and British citizenship. I became a widow at the age of 27 in 2004 but have managed to fall in love again and was married again on July 19, 2008. I have a double major honors degree in sociology and politics and am slowly working my way through a Masters. I am a wanabee writer but until that dream becomes a reality I work in internet marketing where I build websites for profit. So, it is nice to come to a site like this and just enjoy being on the internet rather than using it as a work environment. I am a BBW (big woman) but over the past two years I have lost over 80lbs and am working my way down the scales slowly but steadily. These days, I am trying to eat a lot less meat. So, I am trying to have as many vegetarian recipes in the week as I can manage. I have started a blog - <a href="">Weekend Carnivore</a> where I blog about trying to eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I share a lot of my discovered recipes there. If I make one of your vegetarian recipes and I managed to take a good photo of it, chances are I will blog about it and tell everybody how much I enjoyed it.
