Eggless gluten free apple almond cupcakes with khoya/mawa or dried milk. Made with organic unrefined sugar, soyabean flour and oats. Delicious, healthy and filling, perfect for your kiddos and you. Soyabean flour made these cupcakes protein rich.
Tutti fruity makes the cupcakes attractive. But you can also use choco chips or dry fruits instead of tutti fruity. You can also make a single cake with this batter. I have made 12 cupkakes and 1 small cake.
I have used organic unrefined cane sugar. Far better than chemically produced sugar.
In terms of availability, versatility, convenience, texture, price, eco-friendliness, and nutrition the best substitute for the ubiquitous white sugar is perhaps organic cane sugar. Organic cane sugar is unrefined sugar minus the cancer-causing and environmentally damaging pesticides present in conventionally grown sugarcane. Compared to white sugar, organic cane sugar has the full-bodied taste of sugarcane and is much less processed, retaining a lot of the nutrients present in cane juice. Unrefined cane sugar contains 17 amino acids, 11 minerals, and 6 vitamins, including antioxidants that may help reverse oxidative damage. It is made up of sucrose, fructose, and glucose. Table sugar is just sucrose and calories, plus traces of chemicals utilized in the refining process such as lime, sulphur dioxide, and phosphoric acid. Organic cane sugar is not like brown sugar, which is white sugar with molasses thrown back in.
Sending this post to 173 #Foodiemonday bloghop toddler fingers food theme. This week Poonam Bachhav who blog at Annapurna
suggested the theme #toddler finger food.
So here is a healthy and delicious recipe for toddlers. Cupkakes with all the goodness of apple, milk, almond, oats and protein rich soyabean. I have only one toddler in my neighborhood. A 3 year old naughty boy. And he loves this cake’s look and taste.
Apple – 1 large, peeled, cored and chopped
Soyabean flour – 1 cup
Oats powder – 1/2 cup
Almond – 1/4 cup, heaped
Cinnamon powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon
Milk – 1/2 cup
Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon
Organic unrefined cane sugar – 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon
Vanilla essence – 1/2 teaspoon
Khoya/mawa or dried/evaporated milk – 1 cup, tightly packed
Olive oil or butter – 1/2 cup
1. Preheat the oven at 180° for 10 minutes.
2. Grease or line the cupcake or muffin moulds.
3. Mix lemon juice with milk and keep aside. Milk should be at room temperature.
4. Grind the almonds into fine powder.
5. Sieve Soyabean flour, oats powder, baking powder, soda and cinnamon powder.
6. Blend chopped apple into smooth paste. Add khoya or dried milk and blend altogether. Get homemade khoya recipe here.
7. In a large bowl mix unrefined sugar, olive oil or butter and lemon juice mixed milk. I have used olive oil. Whisk well.
8. Add blended apple and khoya mixture. Whisk again. Sweetness is perfect for me. But if you like more sweetness, add 1 – 2 tablespoon more sugar. Taste the batter before baking.
9. Now add the dry ingredients gradually. Add half of the flour mixture, mix well then add other half.
10. Mix and make a lump free batter. You can add little more milk if require to make a thick but flowing batter. Milk should be at room temperature.
11. Pour the batter into greased or lined mould. Fill the moulds 3/4.
12. Tap the moulds gently. Sprinkle tutty fruity over the cupcakes. You can also sprinkle choco chips instead.
13. Bake in preheated oven at 180° for 20 – 25 minutes. Every oven takes different time. So check after 20 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the middle of one of the cupcakes. If it comes out clean, cakes are ready.
14. Let the cupcakes cool down completely.
15. Serve these protein rich and filling cupcakes to your kids. Adults can also enjoy these cakes.
16. You can serve it With milk, tea or coffee or enjoy without anything.
1. You can use whole wheat flour or refined flour/maida instead of Soyabean flour.
2. If you want you can use vinegar instead of lemon juice.
3. Choco chips can be added in the batter.
