… you get a Jam Donut Cupcake.

I had been looking forward to having a bit of a detox after returning from me hols, but it would seem Sash had other plans for me. When I was told we would be making vegan donuts today I conceded, because I am a good little vegan. 🙂 I thought I might as well start the healthy eating on Monday so whipped up some Gluttonous Vegan macaroni cheese. Stodge for main and stodge for pud yeah!

As it was out first time we experimented with making ring, glazed, jam filled and chocolate filled versions.

Read more about the rather long winded process (but worth it!) for making them here, see more photos here and make your own cupcakes below.
