New apartment, new roommates, new recipes, same love of baking. Last night my roommates and I christened our apartment with baked goods. We have a plethora of baking goods, seriously it’s almost ridiculous. Literally four bags of different kinds of flour, this does not include the oat bran, rice four and barley flour too. Since it was such a joyous occasion we definitely wanted to do cupcakes. Due to the hot weather we wanted to keep them light, but still fun and delicious. I guess we were secretly craving breakfast because we decided to make Strawberry Maple Pancake Cupcakes. We modified a cupcake recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Takeover The World, we added maple syrup, a little nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice to the batter. When the batter was poured in the tins I swirled in a little more maple syrup to make a crunchy sweet top.

When they came out I carved a cone into the top to add a filling.
We decided to do a scoop of Vegan cream cheese and topped that with homemade strawberry preserves.
Extra topped with strawberries and it was delicious!
