Chocolate & Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes

Cupcakes are a great way to celebrate a Birthday!
Chocolate & Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes - Ready to Frost!

These are Vanilla & Chocolate, and made from your own homemade Mix. It's easy to turn out, say, 48 of these little things for someone's Birthday.

They have no animal products, and less saturated fat & chemicals than their traditional counterparts - whether homemade or store bought. 

A great friend who is wary of Vegan food told me that she couldn't tell these from "regular" cupcakes : )

For a Children's Version of this recipe, check out this post! 

Chocolate Vegan Cupcakes
2 1/2 Cups stuffedveggies Vegan Cookie & Cake Mix
2 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 Cup + 2 Tablespoons Water
1/3 Cup Mild-Flavor Oil (I used Sunflower)
1 Tablespoon Vinegar (I used White)

Mix vigorously with spoon till lumps are gone. Use batter to fill prepared muffin tins* for 1 dozen cupcakes. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 35 minutes. 


Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes
2 1/2 Cups stuffedveggies Vegan Cookie & Cake Mix
1 Cup Water
1/3 Cup Mild-Flavor Oil (I used Sunflower)
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract (This isn't a typo - it really is 1 Tablespoon)

Mix vigorously with spoon till lumps are gone. Use batter to fill prepared muffin tins* for 1 dozen cupcakes. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 35 minutes.

*It is your choice whether you bake these in oiled tins or in tins lined with cupcake papers. These Vegan cupcakes DO stick to the paper for the first several hours after baking, but if they are baked one day for a party the following day, the papers work great. 

Freezer Friendly! These cupcakes can be cooled well, then frosted. After the frosting has set (a couple of hours) they can be sealed in an airtight freezer container and frozen until the day of the party. I did it this way for a recent birthday celebration, and it worked great.

  3. Wow Anna, they certainly don't look vegan! A friend recently made some chocolate cupcakes and there was a definite difference in the look but yours are nice and fluffy! Thank you for sharing this recipe on the Art of Home-Making Mondays!

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
