I had purchased a bottle of agave nectar from a local organic bulk store but never used it… until late last night at around 10pm when I decided to bake (this happens often). So I dug up my copy of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World and made these (I de-Veganized them though). The flavour is familiar but I can’t place it: it’s very light and subtle but mingles perfectly with the frosting (also adopted from the same book).
The agave also makes the texture of the cake more moist (sorry for using that word). Also note, that these were baked at 325°F and not your usual 350°F.
