Vegan pineapple cupcake

This is one of the tastiest cupcakes I have ever had. Its so soft and flavourful that this is the first time I had a homemade cupcake without any icing or frosting. I adapted this recipe from Vaishali's mango cupcake.

Ingredients to make around 11 medium sized cupcakes

All purpose flour/Maida: 1 1/2 cups Baking powder: 2 tsp Salt: 1/2 tsp Cardamom powder: 1 tsp Pineapple puree: 1 1/2 cups(I used homemade one. Peeled, cut the pineapple and microwaved for 7 minutes. Allowed it to cool down and then pureed it in a mixer.) Canola oil: 1/3 cup(I used sunflower refined oil) Granulated sugar: 2/3 cup Vanilla extract/essence: 1 tsp

1. Pre heat the oven to and 170 degree C and place paper liners in the mmuffin tin or grease the tin with oil. 2. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cardomom powder together and keep aside. 3. In another large bowl, beat together the puree, oil, sugar and vainlla until well mixed. 4. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix until the batter is smooth.(Do not over mix) 5. Pour a ladleful of batter into the muffin tin. 6. Place the tin in the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the centre comes out clean.

The cup cake was so good that it got over within 10 minutes it came out of the oven. I will be trying this recipe with different pureed fruits.
