  • Summary

    Everything is good with just a hint of lavender! Now you can make the cake cups of your childhood that are no oil added, no refinded sugar and vegan. I use something called aquafaba, or bean water. I used the liquid drained from a can of chickpeas, but you can also use the liquid from homemade beans. See more info on aquafaba on the official website.

    Ingredients

    • ½ cup vegan yogurt (unsweetened or plain)
    • ½ cup unsweetened nondairy milk
    • ¼ cup applesauce
    • ¼ cup avocado or olive oil (make oil free by using an additional ¼ cup applesauce instead)
    • 3 tablespoons aquafaba* (see note in summary)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 15 drops NuNaturals liquid stevia or 25 drops NuNaturals Lo Han Guo extract (monkfruit) or sweetener of your choice, to taste
    • 1½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 1-quart strawberries, hulled and chopped
    • 2 teaspoons gin (Uncle Val's uses lavender and is my favorite)
    • 2 teaspoons lavender balsamic vinegar (or plain balsamic plus ¼ teaspoon lavender extract)
    • whipped coconut cream
    • chopped mint
    • culinary lavender
