Vegan Silk Soy Nog Cupcakes

Hi everyone. It's The Wife here with a guest blog post!




















For Jose's post marathon beverage he requested his favorite holiday beverage, Silk Soy Nog! To further celebrate finishing his first marathon I made him a very special batch of cupcakes, vegan Silk Soy Nog cupcakes! I found a few recipes online but I wasn't happy with any of them. One even had real rum in it and I knew Jose would not eat those. So, this is what I came up with. These cupcakes are so light, moist and have all that yummy nog flavor that you love. I hope you enjoy them. Merry Christmas!




















Silk Soy Nog Cupcakes
--------------
Makes 12 cupcakes.

Preheat oven to 350.
Line pan with 12 cupcake liners.

1 1/4 cup Silk Soy Nog
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp imitation rum extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c oil
1 c sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/3 c flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Combine Silk soy nog and apple cider vinegar. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl combine imitation rum extract, vanilla extract, oil, sugar and nutmeg.
Mix and set aside.

In another mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the nog mixture and the other wet mixture. Mix until no large lumps remain. Be careful to not over mix. This is the secret to light, moist vegan cupcakes!

Fill cupcake liners with batter and bake until toothpick inserted in the center come out clean, for about 18-20 minutes.

Let cool.

  1. This might be the most awesome day ever! John came home with a container of silk soy nog, right after I saw this post! We have not had that stuff around for several years, but today he said he just had a hankering...

    So amazing! It is as if the whole lot of you are conspiring to make me fat! I just can't complain about that though when it is super-cold in here and I need to run the oven to warm us up anyway.

    After my bread is done breaking, the silk nog cup cakes are going in the oven!

  2. Also, Amy should absolutely keep posting these sorts of things here, unless she has her own culinary mastery blog elsewhere that I just don't know about yet...
