Homemade Vegan Candle

No update in over a week because I'm too caught up with school and work. I haven't had the time to truely make anything worthy but I did modified the banana kiwi muffin.

Updated Banana Kiwi Muffin

I think the last Banana Kiwi Muffin didn't taste so good. Yet and I still posted it. Shouldn't do that...

2 Rice Eggs or Ener-G
1/4 Cup /59 mL Soy Milk

  • In a large bowl sift together the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease the loaf pan.
  • Puree the banana and kiwi together in the food processor.
  • Cream together the vegan butter and vegan egg. (If you are using flax or rice egg please let it cool to room temperature before you cream together with the butter or else the butter will melt.)
  • Combine the fruit puree into the liquid mixture.
  • Add in the soy milk, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract and banana essence.
  • Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and combine until the two mixture are all mixed but do not over mix.

Vegan Candles

For all those arts and craft people who enjoy making your own candles, there is a great site that provides vegan candle equipments. Hooray hoorah! They have very reasonable prices and a wide variety of candle base and scents. They're called Southern Scentsation. I emailed them to inquire about their product information. I didnt ask about their soap base nor do I think they are vegan.

This is the email between Beth and me.
