Cupcakes of Light


By request from Br. M.P. in the O.T.O. Facebook Community, we bring you this experiment in sacramental dessert. It is not suitable for communion, but it would make a fine treat with a feast at one’s local O.T.O. body. If you like spice cake, you’ll probably like these.

CupcakesCupcakes of Light

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour[1]
  • 1 cup honey
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 ½ tsp baking powder[2]
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ tbs Oil of Abramelin
  • 1 pinch ash[3]

Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Line 24 medium muffin cups with paper baking cups.

Beat together all ingredients on low speed, scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula, about 30 seconds. Beat on high for about 3 minutes.

Pour batter into baking cups.

Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Allow to cool before serving.

These could be great with cream cheese frosting!
