A question....

Hi there...newbie to lj here and to this comm....loving the look of it though!!!

I have a question...I have recently become vegan after being veggie for years and am trying our various recipes for cakes....the only problem I have found with them is that when I take them out the over (say for cupcakes) they have risen to the top of the case or over but after awhile of being out of the oven they have all shrunk down!  They taste perfectly fine but seem to do this weird deflating thing which is a bit annoying!!!

Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong will be gratefully received :) x

I've had that happen, I think usually it's because of taking a cake recipe and converting it to cupcakes, they don't all work for that. I don't know what exactly will fix those cupcakes specifically but I've never had that problem when using cupcake recipes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, those recipes are way bomb, and they also work as full size cakes.

It was a cupcake recipe from Veganomicon which I think is written by the same folk who did Cupcakes? I think I may invest in that anyhow :)
