If there are two things I love about spring and summer, it’s the heat and the parties. Although, no party is fully complete without a cake to compliment the wonderful array of food that is lined up for guests to enjoy. So instead of having you search for a new idea for a great round of treats, I have veganized the cinnamon cupcake! Made with vanilla and all vegan products, it will be a sure party in your mouth. It will remind you of having a churro and your guests will love it too. So keep reading to see how these were made and what makes them so special.
The secret ingredient in this cupcake is applesauce. Yes it is unlikely character but it’s healthier than using oil, which is a plus for you and those enjoying this cupcake. Also I love when cupcakes are moist and the applesauce does this in an unsuspecting way. What I love about these cupcakes other than how wonderful they taste is the vanilla cinnamon sugar. This topping will take your cupcakes from, “yum” to “oh wow this is delicious!” Check out the recipe below to make your own cupcakes and get your party started!
