Vegetarian Honey and Nut Cupcake

The Vegetarian Festival is upon us. This means there will be many festivities in the nine-day long celebration all throughout Thailand. As for me, the best part of the festival is having a lot of vegetarian dishes to choose from. I am not vegetarian but my diet consists of protein and vegetables eighty percent of the time.

I know this post is too early for the October Vegetarian Festival. I  got up early a few days ago and I was in the mood for these healthy cupcakes.









Vegetarian Honey and  Nut Cupcake

Yields 12 regular-sized cupcakes

Ingredients
150 g all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
a dash of salt
60 g brown sugar ( adjust the amount to suit your taste)
6 TBSP honey
3/4 cup coconut milk
3/4 cup vegetable oil
70 g  nut , lightly toasted ( I used nibbed cashew nuts)


Procedure:
Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Line the muffin tin with cupcake liners.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside




In a stainless steel bowl, beat together sugar and honey until combined. Add the coconut milk and beat to combine.

Gradually add the vegetable oil into the sugar-honey mixture and beat to combine.




Add half of the dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes until the mixture is thickened. Add the remaining dry ingredients and nuts. Mix well.



Spoon batter into muffin tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until  toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.



Serve with tea or coffee. Enjoy.

Note: I noticed that these cupcakes tasted a lot better when eaten the next day.
