The recipes are wrong, 8 Nov 2011
I searched amazon for a vegan cupcake cook book as my 18 month old has a nut and egg allergy. I came across "who you callin' cupcake?" and thought the devil's food cupcake recipe that was featured in the look inside section looked promising. I quickly jotted it down and rustled them up in no time. They came out perfectly and decided to purchase the cook book immediately. I then followed the recipe for Devil's food cupcake that was in the book, well what a disaster they were uncooked and they exploded clearly it was not the same. I compared the two and they were different. I then attempted the Oaxacan - this is a chilli based cupcake. I thought it would be appropriate for a firework party I was going to - Oh noway it blew the heads off people I did question the recipe whilst busy making it as it required 3 tablespoons of Cayenne pepper yes 3!! To add to the heat it required 1 tablespoon of chipotle Pepper which I could not find it the supermarket. Which I guess was a blessing as the whole recipe was a disaster. I feel the authors did not revise the book before it went to print. I now realised I should have read the previous reviews before purchasing this book. Finally, it has nothing to do with the metrics as I used the american cups.
