Strawberry Glazed Flax Cupcakes

My dad loves strawberries and since we were celebrating his 85th birthday, I thought I'd try this recipe that I found on-line.  The frosting for this strawberry cupcake didn't turn out like normal frosting, but it sure wasn't lacking in taste! I tried to add more strawberries to the frosting mixture and it never really firmed up so I poked holes in the cupcakes so the frosting could get into the cake.  My tip would be to stick to the recipe because these cupcakes are strawberry delicious.

    2/3 cup nondairy milk (I use almond milk)
    1/2 cup vegan vanilla yogurt
    1/3 cup canola oil 
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    1 1/4 cups flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup sugar

    2 tablespoons vegan margarine 
    3/4 cup powdered sugar
    2 tablespoons nondairy milk (I use almond milk)
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    2 fresh strawberries, minced


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Combine wet cupcake ingredients in a bowl, mix thoroughly.  

2. Slowly add all of the dry ingredients while mixing until all lumps are gone.

3. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 of the way full. Place in oven for 20 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes before glazing.

4. For glaze, mix all ingredients together thoroughly.  Place in the refrigerator for 30 minute before glazing cupcakes.
