Vegan Cupcakes

Vegan cupcakes include any cupcakes that do not have any animal products in them. As far as deserts go, many vegans desire vegan cupcakes most of all.

A cupcake is simply a small cake baked in a muffin tin, which the baker usually augments with frosting, sprinkles, and/or other decorations. Traditionally, cupcake recipes call for milk and eggs. Additionally, most frostings have dairy in them. Luckily, you can easily make cupcakes without these animal products. You can use soy milk in place of cow milk. You can use an egg substitute in place of eggs. Many grocery stores and specialty stores have vegan egg replacer. Otherwise, you can use substitute eggs with various other household ingredients.

You can use any of the following in place of 1 egg:

  • 1 Tablespoon Flax seeds ground with 3 Tablespoons water
  • 2 Heaping teaspoons Soy powder + 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1 Tablespoon (chick pea) or soya flour and 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce (in sweet recipes)
  • 1 Tablespoon arrowroot, 1 Tablespoon soy flour and 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup soft tofu blended with the liquid portion of the recipe
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1/2 large banana, mashed
  • 2 Tablespoons Potato starch (Instant mash potatoes)
  • 2 Tablespoons flour, 1/2 Tablespoon shortening, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 2 teaspoons water

You may be able to find a vegan cupcake mix at a local grocery store. You'll have more luck at a specialty store. Many cupcake mixes contain animal products. Unless the cupcake mix is labeled as vegan, you will have to check the ingredients yourself. As a result, many people prefer to make their vegan cupcakes from scratch.

Many non-vegan recipes can be made vegan by using soy milk and one of the egg substitutes from the above list. Otherwise, you can use a recipe made specifically vegan. You can ask for recipes in the Vegan Forums or you can find some in most vegan cookbooks. A famous vegan cookbook called Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World has many recipes for vegan cupcakes.

You can also make your own frosting. Although many pre-made frostings have animal ingredients, some do not. Many flavors of Duncan Hines Creamy Home-Style Frosting do not have animal ingredients, including chocolate, classic vanilla, and French vanilla.

I hope this article answered all of your questions regarding vegan cupcakes. If you have any remaining questions, or if you have any comments or suggestions, please post them in our Vegan Forums.
