Vegan Mofo 2010 – Day 14
Not everybody has the time or confidence to bake from scratch. Personally I prefer to prepare everything from scratch rather than buying ready made products and it’s our last day of packing and tomorrow we move into our new home. So I thought I would repost from last year’s Vegan Mofo blog.

Orgran is brand of vegan products from Australia that are widely available in South Africa. I always see them in the health food stores and have been curious to find out if they were any good or not.
I bought a pack of Orgran Chocolate Muffin mix and wanted to see how ready-made muffins compared to the those made from scratch.
The only other ingredients that you need are water and some vegetable oil. I wanted a bit of extra decadence so I decided to add in some chocolate chips – to get the chocolate chocolate chip effect.
5 – 10 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes of baking and I had a batch of a dozen vegan chocolate chip muffins.

(Don’t let my poor photographic skills get to you – they taste way better than they look)
The conclusion : Very good as far as out-of-the-box baking goes and well worth it for those that don’t have the time or confidence to try making their own muffins from scratch.
