Recipe of the Week: Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes

I am making vegan cupcakes for an upcoming party and this recipe is very very good...even for us non-vegans.

VeganVanilla Cupcakes

1 cup soymilk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch 
3/4 teaspoon baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 1/4 teaspoons vanilla 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare muffin pan with cupcake liners.

Mix the soy milk and vinegar and set aside a few minutes to curdle.  In a large bowl, sift the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir to combine.

 In a separate large bowl, beat together the soy milk mixture, oil, sugar and vanilla. Stir the dry ingredients and mix until no lumps remain.

Fill cupcake liners two-thirds full and bake for 18-20 minutes - checking frequently after 15 minutes. Cool completely.
