Recipe by the80srule
I was dying to experiment with this new whole-wheat pastry flour I bought at Whole Foods' bulk section. If using AP or cake flour, just sift it real well. Yields one 10" cake or about 12 cupcakes. Feel free to sub rice milk or coconut milk.
- 4 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
- 4 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
- 6 tablespoons water
- 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 cup unsweetened soymilk
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
Directions See How It's Made
- Cream the applesauce, oil, and sugar together.
- Microwave the flax and water together to make "eggs"-- about 30 seconds to 1 minute for it to get a sticky egg-like consistency. Add to the mix.
- Beat in the flour, soymilk, vanilla and baking powder.
- Grease a 10" round pie pan with cooking spray and lightly dust with flour. (or 12 ungreased muffin papers) Pour the batter into it.
- Bake at 350F or until set (about 30 minutes for a cake, 20-25 minutes for cupcakes.).
