One day when we were making the doughnut holes (posted 4/27/10), I had a little extra batter so Jazlyn suggested making them into cupcakes. She loved them so much that when we needed vanilla cupcakes, she chose to make them instead of our regular recipe. She also wanted them to be her favorite color, blue. These cupcakes have a good flavor, but they are thicker and denser than the vanilla cupcakes I usually make.
Baked Doughnut Hole Cupcakes
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp water, 1 1/2 tbsp oil & 1 tsp baking powder - mixed together
3/4 cup soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 tsp oil
Combine the flour, sugar and baking powder. Add the water-oil-baking powder mixture, soy milk, vanilla and oil. Stir until thoroughly combined. Fill lined muffin cups 3/4 full with the batter. Bake at 325 for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
