Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes

Updated: Jan 20, 2020

I love making and eating vegan desserts. I love the way that you can mix and match ingredients so that they create a cheesecake with cashews and not cheese, but yet the “cheesecake” tastes divine. Or how you can make things like cake, without even using eggs. The thought of the way we make these desserts is honestly just so simple, because we choose to use the nature around us and not the earthlings around us. Although, sometimes when you are in a pinch the simple recipes that take you back to the basics. That’s where this cupcake recipe comes into play, see how it all went down here!

So recently we celebrated Emanuels birthday. He finds joy out of the simpler things, so this year I made us a vegan dinner at home. It was well planned, until a few hours prior I realized, I needed a cake! Cake, the one thing that makes or breaks birthdays. I mean I wasn’t going to put a candle in the roasted brussel sprouts, that would just be weird to me. So I thought to myself “okay cake without eggs, this should be easy just switch it out for baking powder”. Well it worked and I grabbed a little extra help from the Peta website to tweak and give you this super easy birthday cake recipe.

Now for the frosting, you can make your own but you will need a hand mixer. I don’t have one, and I was in a pinch for time so I went to my local grocery store and found most frostings are vegan. The only ones that are not, are the frostings that are made of buttercream. So if you are unable to make your own frosting you have options! Now the other great thing about this recipe is it doesn’t take very long to make, like most cakes I was done with everything in about twenty five minutes. The only hard part was waiting for it to cool and frosting it, mostly because I was ready for us to eat it. These cupcakes are great for any occasion, and easy to make with kids, they will love the experience. Check out this recipe below on this vegan cupcake
