After being particularly precious and waiting until the kitchen had been vacated by lunch making family members I secreted myself into a corner and very carefully measured and mixed. All the while sweating bullets in the sub-saharan Sunday heat.
I finally presented a cupcake to each of my family members and awaited the results. There was silence while they chewed and considered the first vegan cupcake any of them had ever eaten. Then, smiles and positive commentary. Even my normally quite silent brother-in-law-to-be said "Amy, cupcakes were good"; coming from him this is practically Proustian praise.
One challenge successfully completed. So without further ado I present my Lovely Light Lemon Cupcakes.
