“Egg” Nog Latte Cupcakes

It snowed here on Sunday.  On my way to the University Center to get breakfast on Sunday morning, it started snowing.  I was wearing flip-flops.  And then, I got to the market and they were playing Christmas songs.  And they had written their holiday specials up on the board:  egg nog latte, peppermint mocha, etc.  And there was egg nog in the fridge.

VEGAN egg nog.

So I decided I needed to make Christmas-y cupcakes.

Don’t shoot me – I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, and it’s ridiculous how stores put out Christmas decorations the day after Halloween, but I just couldn’t help myself.

Plus, today is the first Snow Day of the year, and I’m trying to put off packing to go home, cleaning my dorm room, and writing my two papers that are due today and tomorrow.

 

EGG NOG CUPCAKES

  • 1 1/4 c. Silk eggnog
  • ¼ c. vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 1/3 c. AP flour
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350° F.  Mix the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls, then pour the wet into the dry and stir just until combined.  Scoop into mini cupcake tins and bake for about 10 minutes.

EGG NOG COFFEE BUTTERCREAM

  • 1 c. non-dairy margarine
  • 4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/4 c. Silk egg nog
  • A couple tablespoons instant coffee
  • Vanilla extract

Mix the instant coffee with the egg nog.  Prepare just like a normal buttercream, substituting the Silk egg nog for milk.  Top off your cupcakes, and enjoy!
