Lemonade Cupcakes

 

 Ingredients  
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup graulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup oil
1 cup coconut or soy milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 lemon, zest and juice


 Directions  
Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line 12 cup cupcake pan with paper liners.

Combine dry ingredients, including sugars, in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.

Combine wet ingredients, including lemon zest, in a small bowl. Whisk to combine.

Pour the wet works over the dry works. Whisk to combine. Do not beat.

Divide among the 12 cupcakes - about 1/4 cup each should fill it 2/3 to 3/4 full.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Do not underbake or they tend to fall as they cool. Allow to cool in pan for 10 min, then remove to rack to cool completely before frosting.


 Notes  
These are a yummy lemony sponge type cake. Top with Lemonade Buttercream Frosting for a fabulous summertime treat.


 Substitutions  
Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.

Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.

Coconut: Although classified by the FDA as a tree nut, coconut is not a common allergen and is not related to tree nuts. If you have a tree nut allergy, consult your physician to find out if you need to avoid coconut.

  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.

Hello! These sound delicious. I'd like to make them into mini cupcakes for a class party--one student has an egg and soy allergy, so these fit the bill as I can use alternates for the soy milk as well. No dairy allergy. Any suggestions for baking minis? I'm planning on keeping a close watch and not baking too long. Thank you Smile

Should work fine as mini muffins. I'd start checking at 12 - 15 minutes. Might take up to 18. Some mini pans are bigger than others.

Can you add  different fruits like blueberries

I don't know if anyone has tried adding fruits, but it should work.  These are not as dense as a muffin, so they may sink.

Yum!  The kids absolutely loved these Smile.  I used almond milk and they worked out really well Smile
