Vegan Easter Cupcakes


    As you may know by now my sweet tooth is almost no where to be found and because of that I just don't enjoy baking all that much because I don't get much enjoyment from eating the sweets I make, but I do get joy out of seeing my kids and my husband eat sweet treats I make. Easter is around the corner so I thought it was only right if I made something pretty and sweet for everyone to enjoy. I even manage to eat one before peaking out my sweet tooth for the day.

    Vegan Easter Cupcakes

    Yeilds 12 Cupcakes Cupcakes

    1 c. granulated sugar 1 3/4 c. all purpose flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 c. vegetable oil (any flavorless oil) 1 c. unsweetened almond milk 2 tbsp vanilla extract 1 tbsp vinegar

    Buttercream Frosting 2 1/2 c. powdered sugar 1 1/2 c. vegetable shortening 1 tsp vanilla pinch of salt

    Instructions

    Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix granulated sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix the dry ingredients until all combined. In a separate bowl mix, the wet ingredients until combined. Then add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and with a hand mixer or stand mixer mix until all the ingredients are just incorporated. DO NOT over mix, or you cupcakes will come out hard. You can also at this point fold in sprinkles, if you like.

    Line cupcake tin with cupcake liners and add cupcake batter to each liner. Fill just a tad less then half way up. Then place in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Once cooked let cool before frosting.

    For the frosting mix together all frosting ingredients in a stand mixer or stand mixer until all the ingredients are very well incorporated. Scrap down the sides of the bowl to make sure everything get mixed in. Once all is mixed well you can add the food coloring of your choice and frost your cupcakes. All that is left to do now is ENJOY!
