Our friends at House Foods, makers of soft tofu, have come up with a vegan/vegetarian recipe for Ginger Spiced Tofu cupcakes. The tofu in the batter makes these cupcakes moist and delicious.
Recipe courtesy House Foods www.house–foods.com
½ pkg drained soft tofu (House Foods makes both Premium or Organic Soft Tofu)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
⅓ c. vegetable oil
1¼ c. vegan sugar (available at stores like Whole Foods)
1 c. all purpose flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp. ground ginger
¼ tsp. ground clove
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a food processor, purée tofu, vanilla and oil until smooth.
Once combined, add dry ingredients and pulse a few times.
With a spatula, scrape sides and bottom of food processor. Pulse a few times more.
In a cupcake pan lined with wrappers, scoop in batter and bake for 20 min. or until done.
Once done, let cupcakes cool in pan. When cooled, top with desired frosting and serve.
