About 2 years ago, I discovered King Cake, Beignets, and Po' Boys. I virtually ate the city of New Orleans. Then Mardi Gras came around and I tried my hand at Vegan King Cake. I turned out wonderful. Now that I am making cupcakes and Mardi Gras is here again, I will bake Vegan King Cupcakes for your viewing and tasting pleasure.

Vegan King Cupcake Recipe

Ingredients:

1 packet dry active yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3 tablespoons raw sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup almond milk

Vegan King Cake Filling Recipe

Ingredients:

1/4 cup vegan butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 chopped nuts
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk together dry active yeast, warm water, and 1 tablespoon of raw sugar.

Let it stand for 10 minutes. If froth forms over the top, you're good. If not, buy new yeast and start over.

In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons of raw sugar, whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, salt, and nutmeg.

To the yeast mixture, whisk in canola oil almond milk.

Ad the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until a dough bowl forms.

Knead the dough ball on a lightly floured surface for 2 to 3 minutes.

Place the dough ball into a lightly oil bowl and cover with a clean linen.

Leave it in a warm place for an hour to 2 hours until it has doubled in size.

Make the filling in a small bowl by creaming together vegan butter, brown sugar, nuts, and cinnamon.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a cupcake tin with yellow, green, and purple. paper liners.

Place the dough ball onto a lightly flour surface. Roll in out into a 12 inch by 12 inch square.

Spread the filling evenly over the top. Start with the end nearest you, and roll it up like a cinnamon roll.

Use a knife to cut the roll into 12 equal pieces. Place one piece in each cavity.

Bake for 25 minutes until they have risen and turn golden brown.

Vegan Sugar Glaze Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup powdered sugar
1 - 3 tablespoons almond milk

Stir together powdered sugar and almond milk. Add in almond gradually until the creamy consistency you desire is met.

Place a dollop of glaze atop each Vegan King Cupcake. Decorate with purple, yellow, and green sprinkles if you pleasse.
