Yesterday I shared the fabulous shockingly healthy egg nog. Today I will share with you what you can do if you have any left over, although that’s doubtful. You should probably make an extra batch, just for using in other egg nog flavored recipes. You might have tons of parties, and you’re a little worried about fitting into your skinny jeans for New Year’s. You might be craving a cupcake, but only have a minute to spare. If you make the single serving egg nog cupcake, all you need is a minute! (plus baking time). If you love it so much you want to make a whole batch of 12, I’ve done the math for you too. After all, you shouldn’t have to do math over the holidays.
- Combine the following in a bowl:
- 3 tbsp spelt flour (or flour of choice)
- 4 tbsp egg nog
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- pinch salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- sweetener (I used 5 drops of stevia)
Icing for one:
- 3 tbsp vanilla whey protein powder
- 1 tbsp egg nog
Stir together. Easy as pie. Or nog. These aren’t as fluffy as a regular cupcake. They’re a little richer, just like egg nog. These are to cupcakes, as egg nog is to milk. Mmm.
Egg Nog Cupcakes for 12
- 3 cups egg nog
- 2 1/4 cups spelt flour
- 3 tbsp vanilla
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- stevia (1 to 1.5 tsps of liquid extract, depending on desired sweetness)
Combine all ingredients, and bake for 18-25 minutes at 350.
Icing for 12 cupcakes:
- 2 cups vanilla whey protein powder
- 8-10 tbsp egg nog
- Pour whey powder into a bowl, and gradually add egg nog, until you achieve desired icing thickness.
You should watch this video while you eat your cupcake, because it will make you smile even more than the cupcake. Hard to believe, I know. I don’t think I’ll ever post a commercial again, I mean, I usually keep it to recipes, but this one made me smile too much not to share.
