Day 30 Recipe 30 Southern Queen of Vegan Cuisine:
Based on the reaction to the Confederate Bean Soup, people are unaware that the south is obsessed with the Civil War. Having grown up in Atlanta, GA and attended college in South Carolina, this was no secret to me. Slavery, Civil War, Reconstruction, and Civil Rights are all apart of American history. Some regions of the country have put it behind them while others hold dear.
Paula Deen says in the Southern Cooking Bible that she loves this cake in honor of General Lee. A cake is nothing compared to all the parks, roads, statues and building named after the people who fought to keep slavery alive and well. I feel as if the south is that 40 year old man who always looks back on his Friday night, High School State Football championship where he fumbled the ball. He never lived it down. He never let it go. He never fully reconciled with the L.
We are making the (cup)cake and eating it today in celebration. Without the lose, I probably wouldn't be college educated, or educated at all, a small business owner, free to come and go, and I definitely wouldn't be on YouTube. And I looooove YouTube.
General Robert E. Lee Cupcakes Recipe
zest of one orange
zest of one lemon
1 3/4 unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup non-dairy milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 cups organic powdered sugar
Juice of one lemon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a cupcake tine with 12 paper liners.
In a large bowl, whisk together orange zest, lemon zest, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together raw sugar, nondairy milk, canola oil, applesauce, vanilla extract, and vinegar.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine with a rubber spatula.
Use an ice cream scooper to evenly distribute the cupcake batter through out the line cupcake tin.
Bake for 20 minutes. When a toothpick can be inserted into the center of a cupcake and removed with few to no crumbs, they are done.
Allow them to cool before glazing with a thick mix of powered sugar and lemon juice.
