Went apple picking as we do every fall, which inevitably means time for apple recipes! Made some great ones this year! This was my favorite so far.
- 6 peeled and quartered apples
- 4 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 cup softened margarine
- 1 cup vegan soy yogurt
- 2 TBsp flax seed mixed with 4 Tbsp water
- 2/3 cup almond milk
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ginger
- 1/4 tsp cloves
- 3 cups flour
Mix the apple bits with 2 Tbsp margarine, the brown sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon in a sauce pan until soft, 5-19 minutes over medium heat.
In a large bowl mix together the rest of the margarine, yogurt, flax seed, sugar, and vanilla.
Then stir in the dry ingredients.
In a muffin tin with liners, place 1 Tbsp batter. Then 1 tsp apple mixture, then top with another 1-1.5 Tbsp batter.
Bake at 350 for 19-21 minutes.
Next make the cream cheese frosting:
Use mixers to beat together 1 container vegan cream cheese, 1/2 cup softened margarine, 2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 4-5 cups of powdered sugar. Use this to top your cupcakes!
