#22 Mixed Vegetable with Goat Cheese and Honey

Oh yeah. Vegetable cupcakes.

I bought a juicer (get a juicer, you will love it). The only problem with a juicer is all the castoff material. Whatever was I to do with all the pulp. Answer? Cupcakes.

The pulp was made mostly of carrots (which, as it turns out, even in juice form, I don't like). Also: celery, yellow pepper, peach, apple, and cucumber. The cupcakes were 'different', and people seemed to really enjoy them - some having 2 or even 3 minis!

I made these for a group of folks I know are open to trying new things. The child of the group spit it out immediately - so these aren't for everyone, certainly. :)

The icing was wonderful, IMO. I adored it. Not too sweet, just right. And it complemented the odd vegetable cake nicely.

Cupcakes (24 minis)
1 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. vegetable pulp, some juice
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
3/4 c. oil

Mix mix mix, bake at 350 for 22 minutes.

Goat cheese (soft), some
Honey, about 2 tbsp

Mix mix, pipe.

Mmm, goat cheese icing.

Images are trapped on my camera, which atm has no batteries. I'll add them soon!

for the record: the spitting-out child is autistic & doesn't like different textures (and probably would have freaked out until he tried one, anyway)... so possibly a "healthy" child-friendly alternative! :)

Sounds yummy to me! Looking forward to seeing the pics. What could be bad about goat cheese and honey?
