Vegan vanilla cupcakes 🧁

Cupcake ingredients :

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 cup sugar (raw or refined)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

1 cup plant based milk (almond)

1/2 cup canola oil

Frosting ingredients:

1/2 plant based butter

2 tablespoons plant based milk

2 cups powdered sugar

1/3 cup vegetable shortening

*Chocolate frosting alternative: Add 2-3 tablespoons of cacao powder.*

Use two separate bowls and mix dry ingredients in one bowl, then the wet ingredients in the other. *Remember to run the flour through a strainer, then into the bowl. It helps with flour clumps.*

Combine both wet and dry bowl ingredients into one. Use a whisk until the batter is smooth.

Hear oven to 350, place the cupcake ingredients into the cupcake liners in a tray. Bake in the oven 15-18 minutes, until center is cooked. Check center with a toothpick.

Frosting prep:

Mix all the frosting ingredients in bowl then use a hand mixer until the frosting has a thicker but smooth consistency. Place frosting in the refrigerator until the cupcakes have thoroughly cooled, about 20 minutes.

Apply frosting, and serve!
