BEST VEGAN VANILLA CUPCAKES
Best Vegan Vanilla Maple Cupcakes. Big name and big on flavor. These are light, moist, fluffy and sweet. They are dangerously delicious. This recipe makes 2 batches, so it's great for parties and events.
A party in fact, is what I baked up these recently for. I've known my best friend Kacy since we were 6 years old. She is truly one of the most amazing people I've ever known. She is humble, intelligent and downright hilarious. She is getting married soon and has graciously asked me to be her matron of honor. I'm so excited for her and to be a part of it all. I just hosted her bridal shower this past Saturday and served these cupcakes. They were a huge hit and of course nobody could tell they were vegan! Another popular dessert I served were my No-Bake Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars!
Unfortunately, not everything went according to my plans or vision in my head....does it ever? I had planned on making a large 12x18 sheet cake. Well, I underestimated how much batter I would need since I've never made a cake that large. Therefore, I had to act quickly and made my tried and true maple vanilla cupcakes instead. I didn't have enough time to start all over for the cake. These are by far my favorite cupcakes I have ever eaten. Everybody loves sweets and these are perfect for a party. They are full of maple flavor and vanilla. I like them better than chocolate cupcakes any day, if you can believe that!
Her wedding colors are yellow and dark gray, so that is why the cupcakes are those colors. Regarding the cupcakes, I wrote this recipe a few months ago so this one isn't oil-free. I didn't have enough time to test it and rewrite it oil-free. I make everything oil-free now. This recipe however is absolutely delicious and it is for a special occasion, not something we eat everyday.
Note: This recipe I wrote on my other blog before I started this blog, The Vegan 8, so it is 9 ingredients instead of 8 and not gluten-free or oil-free, but come on...still ridiculously easy and soooo delicious. Great for a special occasion, event or birthday!
I can't wait to hear what you think of these cupcakes! They will blow your mind...and your guests. Be sure to leave me feedback below after you make them, I love to hear it!
I made the maple vanilla cupcakes, 4 ingredient peanut butter cookies, mint chocolate chip cookie bars. I had also planned on serving my Roasted Strawberry Mousse Shots, but yet again, another plan that failed. I dropped the entire bowl on the floor. It was SO delicious too.
By the way, if you are gluten-free, then make my Best Vegan Gluten-free Vanilla Cake or my Funfetti Birthday Cake instead. They both can be made into cupcakes! They are both to die for and equally delicious.
The favors I made. They are mason style mini jars filled with yellow sand, vanilla candles and accented with gray thank you stickers and yellow ribbon. Much better than candy favors!
