Jam Filled Cupcakes

 Katie, over at Chocolate Covered Katie (my go-to blog for dessert inspiration) asked for a round-up of newly tried vegan desserts. I just had to participate...any excuse to bake!!  I looked through my two new purchases, Veganomicon and Vegan with a Vengeance for inspiration.  These cookbooks are great, by the way.  They are filled with simple, healthy and CHEAP vegan recipes.  Best of all, they have all been delicious so far! But I digress...

I saw this AWESOME looking recipe for "Jelly donut cupcakes" in Veganomicon.  I renamed the recipe "Jam Filled Cupcakes" because when I made them the jam didn't sink into the center like it did for the authors, however, they were still super delicious. 

Best of all? One bowl!!! 

You were supposed to be able to put the jam on top and the cake would rise around it... it happened about half way with mine, but if I remade them I would make a little well for the jam in the center of the cakes. 
A little bit of jam spillage..
All done and delicious!

These look delicious! I just made something quite similar for my dad for his birthday! I topped with buttercream frosting but the powdered sugar really lets the cupcake speak for itself. Looks amazing
