Gopi's Monster Cupcakes

Alright!! Breaking away from all that healthy sprouted wheat flour for a moment - this cupcake recipe was inspired by the request of my sweet and powerful little friend Madhavi! :-)  They are light both in texture and flavor, super fluffy, very tasty and more-ish. :-) Hope you like these girl!

 Makes 8 monster size cupcakes.

2 cups unbleached all purpose flour (sift if necessary)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 heaped TBSP fresh lemon zest
1 handful dried cranberries or blueberries (optional)
1 handful carob or chocolate chips (optional)
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup milk
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup cane sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup safflower oil
8 baking cups

Mix dry ingredients together. Mix lemon into milk to make it sour. Mix other wet ingredients and then mix everything together nicely. Spoon into baking cups and bake in preheated oven at 365 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake approx 20-25 mins til golden brown on top.

To test done-ness, lightly press your finger on the surface of the cake and if the depression you created springs back, then its done.

Remove from oven and allow to cool. Drizzle with frosting if you so desire. :-) Bon appetite!

*To turn these into fairy cakes, simply cut the tops off, and decorate with your favorite frosting/cream etc. The tops a quite delectable in their own right! ;-)

2 tsp lemon juice
3/4 cup icing sugar or cake frosting

Mix well and drizzle over the cupcakes when they are room temperature.
