Lady Marmalade, a Quiz and Analog Accessories

It's word association day here in Veganville. If you like, phrase association day. There is one rule. As beautiful as the word "sunshine" is you will be exempt if you use it.
What 4 things come to mind when you think of the word "orange"? I'll go first.

1. Tango- It is an orange flavored vodka one drinks from a paper bag when Ripple isn't available.
2. Tang- a space age drink astronauts used to drink when Tango wasn't available.
3. Charlie Manson's jumpsuit.
4. Orange you glad I didn't say Sirhan Sirhan's jumpsuit ---I mean banana. No pun intended.

Now you go. I'll make the sound of a clock while you pick your four words. Go! Tick, tick (sorry I just had a little tic...bahaha). Anyway, times up. We don't have all day. I want to present this new recipe but first I want to bring you this cool little Etsy shop, called  Analog Accessories They carry all sorts of cool bags, pouches, totes, even coasters (perfect if you get tired of swigging  Ripple from a paper bag). Take a peek at this.

I love corduroy and the lining is just so pretty. Boy I wish I knew about this orange pouch before I used up my four guesses. You can find Annalog Accessories-  Just click on the link above and Anna the store owner even has a great blog called Carrot and Potato Time where she talks about vegan dining experiences and posts great recipes. Carrots, damn those are orange, why didn't I think of carrots? Anyway, before you hightail outta here to do some shopping therapy at Analog Accessories or check out Anna's uber cool blog-Here are my new cuffins.

Lady Marmalade Cuffins (Cuffins because they're not a muffin and not a cupcake exactly)

Makes 6 Jumbo Cuffins

2 cups unbleached flour
3 tablespoons organic sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 C Water mixed with 1 T Ener-g egg replacer
3/4 cup rice milk
2/3 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup orange marmalade
3 tablespoons tofutti softened
1 T orange juice concentrate thawed
1 cup confectioners' sugar
 or use your own glaze, why don't you. I can't really see what you're doing anyway.

Directions: Line Cuffin pan with cuffin liners

1.In a large bowl, combine  flour, sugar, baking powder and seasalt. In another bowl, beat the egg replacer slurry, marmalade and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

2.Fill paper-lined cuffincups three-fourths full. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20- 24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean or they get springy to the touch. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

3.In a small mixing bowl, beat the marmalade and tofutti until fluffy. Stir in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Dip and swirl tops of cuffins in glaze.

  Works for me.
