Warm, delicious and…vegan?

By • Jul 21st, 2010 • Category: Food, FOOD AND TRAVEL

Veganism is becoming an increasingly popular lifestyle. Being a vegetarian myself, I can understand why, but even if you could never give up your love for meat – take one look at these cupcakes and you will salivate.

These, my friends, are completely vegan. Don’t they look simply melt-in-your-mouth delicious?! Try them yourself – we’ve shared with you the recipe, thanks to Culinate!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • ¾ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt (increase salt to ½ teaspoon if you’re using oil instead of margarine)
  • ½ cup non-hydrogenated margarine, softened, or â…“ cup canola oil
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. almond extract, caramel extract, or more vanilla extract

Steps

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin pan with cupcake liners.

2. Whisk the soy milk and vinegar in a measuring cup and set aside for a few minutes to get good and curdled.

3. If using margarine: Sift the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl and mix.

4. In a separate large bowl, use a handheld mixer at medium speed to cream the margarine and sugar for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy. (Don’t beat past 2 minutes.) Beat in the vanilla and other extract, if using, then alternate beating in the soy milk mixture and dry ingredients, stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times.

5. If using oil: Beat together the soy milk mixture, oil, sugar, vanilla, and other extracts, if using, in a large bowl. Sift in the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and mix until no large lumps remain.

6. Fill cupcake liners two-thirds of the way and bake for 20 to 22 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack, and let cool completely before frosting.
