Vegan Chai Latte Cupcakes

I was looking through photos off of my old phone and found this one of Chai Latte Cupcakes! I went through a stage of vegan baking from the Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World recipe book. It's a great book and has some really great cupcake creations. Try this recipe out and I bet no one would know they are vegan cupcakes. I will have to do some more recipes from this book and take better pictures with my camera.

1 cup soy milk
4 black teabags
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup plain soy yogurt
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
pinch of ground pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Heat soy milk to almost boiling in a small sauce pan. Add the tea bags, cover, and remove from heat. Let sit for 10 minutes.When ready, dunk teabags a few times in soy milk and squeeze gently to extract any soy milk before removing. Discard tea bags. Measure the soy milk and tea mixture and add more soy milk if it is less than 1 cup.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, yogurt, sugar, vanilla and tea mixture until all yogurt lumps disappear. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, and pepper into wet ingredients. Mix until large lumps disappear, some small lumps are okay. Fill tins full and bake for 20 to 22 minutes.
  4. Cool completely on a wire rack before decorating with icing sugar and cocoa powder.
