About this recipe
- Vegan recipe(No egg, milk and butter)
- Baking time : 25 minutes
- Easy and quick recipe
Here are the ingredients(amounts is in recipe card below).
I use unadjusted soy milk(no sugar or flavor added).
Frozen blueberries is available all through year so it's convenient but in the summer I recommend to use fresh blueberries from local farmer's market.
In the following section, I will talk more about flour, baking powder, oil and sugar.
There are many types of flour you can choose such as all-purpose flour, cake flour or pastry flour for muffins but not bread flour. Bread flour contains high protein and gluten and it will come out chewy.
In this recipe, I use cake flour and whole wheat cake flour.
Using whole wheat flour make a muffin a little hard and firm but I like the texture. You can also cutting down the potion of whole wheat flour like 20% or 0% to your preference.
Baking powder is used to rise the volume for baked goods.
There are two types of baking powder, regular and aluminum-free.
Previously, it was said that aluminum is associated with some health problems. However, new research found there is no evidence for that relationship. So it doesn't really matter now but I prefer to choose aluminum-free one.
I use this sesame oil called "Taihaku" for making all my desserts.
Regular sesame oil is squeezed after roasting, but this particular "Taihaku" sesame oil is squeezed with raw so it does not have the color and the unique smell of sesame.
This sesame oil is good for not only baked goods but also savory dishes. So this is my staple oil.
There are various types of sugar and it's sometime hard which one to choose. For me the point is the GI.
The GI (glycemic index) is an index that expresses the degree of increase in blood sugar level after eating. If you continue eating foods with a high GI, you may have a sudden spike in blood sugar and eventually leading to lifestyle diseases.
But sweets are delicious. I have a sweet tooth so difficult to give up on it. That's why when I bake sweets, I choose low GI sugar, beet sugar.
White sugar's GI is 110, while beet sugar is 65. But I always keep in mind sugar is sugar, taking moderate amount is the best.
