Vegan Basic Vanilla Cake
These rose decently, and were quick to put together, but without frosting, these cupcakes had a strange, kind of sour aftertaste here and there. I believe it's from the lemon cause it was a lemon sort of pucker (I used fresh-squeezed). I've used vinegar to make vegan cakes before, but I've never had a sour bite to them. I had to omit the almond extract (nut allergies) but I don't think it would have disguised the sourness. I think the acidity needs tweaking. Maybe 3/4 the amount of lemon specified.

Twenty Minute Buns
I had a couple of problems with the recipe. My yeast was fine, and it rose OK the first time around, but the they didn't rise double the second time around (certainly not in 20 minutes). They also didn't have much spring. The end result had an acceptable taste and texture, but most were too small for a hamburger bun. I'd probably cut in thirds and then cut each third into 4 or 5 pieces instead of 6. I raised my oven temperature about 10 degrees, but 15 minutes was also insufficient cook time... at 15 minutes, the pieces that were dinner-roll size were fine, but the bun-size were fairly anemic looking and doughy in the middle. I think the recipe needs to be adjusted slightly for cook time and hotter oven temp.

Granola Bars III
My son, who has dairy peanut and nut allergies, wanted so badly to be able to have a granola bar that my non-baker self broke down and made him these (sans walnuts, of course). Very easy. Very versatile. Unrefined coconut sugar works very well instead of brown sugar. You can also reduce the brown sugar to about 1/4 of a cup and they're still fine. I can put anything I want in them, though raisins and chocolate chips are the reigning favorite. I use light olive oil and add 1/4 cup flax seed and 1/4 cup oat bran, and they're even kind of healthy! have to bake them in double batches every time I make them because everyone loves these, not just my son. I must have given a dozen people this recipe already. This household will never buy granola bars again.
