2 1/4cupsflourfine pastry flour or AP
1/2cup + 2 Tbspsilken tofuroom temperature or slightly cooler
1 1/2cupscane sugarorganic
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake tin.
Add all the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl. stir to combine.
Pour in the milk, oil, sugar, vanilla and scoop in the silken tofu. Using a hand of stand mixer, start mixing the batter until it is smooth and fluffy. It should have a glossy sheen to it and light yellow color. The color will darken as the cupcakes bake.
Scoop the batter into the cupcake tins. If you want puffy, high cupcakes, fill to the brim. If you want short just slightly rounded cupcakes - the best for frosting - fill about 3/4 of the way full.
Bake cupcakes for 18-22 minutes at 350 degrees. when done, the tops will be fluffy and the inside should come out clean doing a toothpick test.
Allow cupcakes to fully cool before frosting.
** If baking a cake instead of cupcakes, baking time will vary.
