Do you feel like eating makis, but are fed up of rolling them up? Don’t worry, from today on you can bake your own makis. How? Simple, follow up my recipe and turn them into cupcakes!

The idea of maki cupcakes come into my mind at the very beginning of MoFo but, beeing the weirdest recipe I’ve ever posted, I saved for the end. Hope you enjoy it!

maki cupcakes

Ingredients (makes 20 mini cupcakes)

For the batter
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup soy milk at room temperature
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 tsp soy sauce tsp salt
2 nori seaweeds layers

For the veganaise
1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup sunflowers oil
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 lemon juice
pinch of salt

For the filling
1 avocado sliced
1 carrot thin sliced

For the decoration
black and white sesame seeds toasted

Start by making the batter. Whisk in a bowl soy milk, canola oil and soy sauce. In another bowl measure out flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet and whisk until smooth.
Slice the seaweeds into 1 cm layers, form a ring and insert into the cupcake pans. Scoop the batter very carefully inside the seaweed rings and transfer to the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool completely.

For the veganaise combine soy milk, sunflowers oil, dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt and beat until creamy.

Cut a hole shape out of each cupcake and throw it away. Spread the hole with veganaise, then fill with slices of avocado, carrot and sprouts. Garnish with sesam black and white sesame seeds toasted.

    With our summer rapidly approaching I can minimise the heat of the day by baking desert and sushi at the same time…and I can eat it for days without heating up the kitchen. Kudos Dr Cal, you rule! 🙂

  2. Just wow… you are so, so creative! Amazing inventiveness! Love the idea of the combination of flavours in this cupcake. I am wondering what this cupcake would be like made with rice flour and steamed, like a Chinese bun? Hm, I might experiment!! Fantastic way to end your cupcake series. All of them were amazing!
