Vegan MoFo V / White Russian Cupcakes

I was busy doing this...

 Lately I made these incredible White Russian Cupcakes! They consist of 2 layers, a coffe one and a cream one. It was a good excuse to use some of my coffee liquor and some vodka, left from my homemade vanilla extract. I doubled the recipe and made 24 cupcakes and 4 times the frosting recipe, and brought everything to a party at my best friend's house. Everyone liked them, and I guess they are also very good without the frosting...


...eating this for breakfast every day!
 
I have been dreaming of a beautiful fall!







White Russian Cupcakes
yields 12 cupcakes
adapted from cute & delicious

Coffee batter:

½ cup soy milk
½ tsp apple cider vinegar
1 ¼ cup spelt flour
1 Tbsp corn starch
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup plus 1 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp canola oil
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp instant espresso powder
2 Tbsp coffee liquor
1 tsp vodka
Cream batter
½ cup soy milk
½ tsp apple cider vinegar
1 cup + 2 Tbsp spelt flour
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp vodka

White Russian Frosting

1/4 cup vegan butter
2 Tbsp coffee liquor
2 tsp vodka
1 cup powedered sugar, sifted

Preheat oven to 170°C (350F). Fill your cupcake tray with funny liners, because white ones are boring!
As suggested in the original recipe, it is best to make both batters at the same time. You'll need 4 bowls, 2 for each batter. Start with mixing soy milk and apple cider vinegar in seperate dishes. Now mix together the dry ingredients for each of the batter in 2 seperate bowls. In the other 2 bowls, mix all the wet ingredients, adding the soy milk mixture last. Now mix the wet and dry of both batters. Start filling your liners with the coffee batter. Lastly, fill in the cream batter and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let them cool in the pan for 5 minutes, and then let them cool completely on a rack.


























For the White Russian Frosting, beat the vegan butter until smooth. Add the coffee liquor and vodka and beat until combined. Now sift in 1 cup of powdered sugar and beat until smooth again. It depends on the texture of your frosting, how much powdered sugar you want to add! If you want to pipe the frosting, you'll have to double it.



Enjoy!
