Ingredients:

For the cupcakes:

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup plus 1/3 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅔ cup almond or soy milk
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the frosting:

  • ½ cup vegan shortening (like Earth Balance)
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons almond or soy milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease or line a cupcake tray with baking cups.
  2. In a large bowl, add dry ingredients together, and then mix the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl. Pour the wet mixture into the dry, and whisk until combined (do not over mix!). Bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. While they cupcakes bake in the oven, use an electric mixer to combine all the ingredients for the frosting. Be sure to let the cupcakes completely cool before frosting.
