At the end of last year, my mother sat us all around the kitchen table and announced that she was going to become a vegetarian.

Which complicates my life a tiny bit seeing as my recipes for eggless baking is limited. I only really have 3 eggless cake recipes.

So I set myself a task of looking into recipes that wouldn’t be bland and tasteless and that are not too healthy because my dad has a sweet tooth rather than  a savory tooth.

I came across a website called Loving it Vegan where there is a ton of recipes that are egg free, which is just up my street.

I have really thought that vegan cakes and treats would be delicious, I always got the impression that they were tasteless healthy food only gym buddies ate, but then I made the muffins and ate them and I was SOOO wrong, they are delicious and tasty, you would never say that they are egg free at all.

Also thanks to the website I have finally learnt what an egg substitute in baking is… how clever am I???
