Sorry blog-sphere for not updating. I started classes with my 2 1/2 hour commute each way so I've been plenty busy driving, homeworking, and working. For anyone dying to know, I survived Hood to Coast.
Clearly, this is pre-running enthusiasm.
I got home from work today planning on going for a run. It literally looked like a monsoon outside, so I decided to make cupcakes instead.
Frosted Maple Nut Cupcakes- SF and GF
1/2 cup real maple syrup
1 cup rice milk
1/4 cup grape seed oil
1 cup rice flour
1 cup millet flour
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
2 tablespoons flax meal
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
Beat liquid ingredients together using a stand mixer. Slowly add in flours, xanthan, and flax meal and return the mixer on high. Once the ingredients are thoroughly blended (it will be pretty liquid), pour into a well greased muffin tin. Sprinkle walnuts evenly over batter and bake for 22 minutes in a 425 oven.
Maple Nut Cream Cheese Frosting
1 8oz package of neufchatel cheese at room temperature
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 teaspoon of cornstarch
Cream ingredients together until smooth. Spread on top of cooled cupcakes.
