  • 2 cups granulated sugar, sifted
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 3/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Mix well.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat sugar, oil and the almond and vanilla extracts.
  3. Alternately, add the flour and almond milk to the mixing bowl, beginning and ending with the flour. Mix until combined. Do not overwork the batter.
  4. Line cupcake pans with cupcake liners. Fill the cupcakes about 2/3 full. Bake in a 350 preheated oven for 13 to 15 minutes, until a toothpick tester comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.

      These almond cupcakes with almond frosting sound delicious! Since we live at high altitude, I will have to use plain flour and leavening to control the rise. Thank you for sharing!
