Eating Liberally’s Kingmaker Cupcakes:

(Makes 12 cupcakes or 24 mini-cupcakes, and, yes, they’re totally egg and dairy free for our vegan friends)

3/4 cup vanilla soy milk
1 tsp cider vinegar
1 1/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour, or spelt flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup agave, maple syrup, or honey
1/3 cup orange juice
1 Tbsp. orange zest
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray or line with cupcake liners. Combine soymilk and cider vinegar and set aside for a few minutes to curdle.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy milk mixture, oil, agave (or maple syrup or honey), orange juice, zest, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients gradually, stirring until the batter is smooth.

Fill cupcake liners or pan two-thirds full. Bake 20-22 minutes for regular cupcakes, or about 14 minutes for mini cupcakes, until the top springs back when pressed lightly. Remove cupcakes from muffin pan. Cool completely. Frost with citrus glaze (recipe below) topped with green, gold and purple sugar.

Citrus glaze:

1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 ½ tsp orange juice
1 ½ tsp lemon juice

Combine sugar with cinnamon and citrus juices, stir till thoroughly mixed. Apply after cupcakes have cooled. Sprinkle green, gold, and purple stripes on top of the glaze. Insert plastic baby. Cast your vote.
