Are you ready to treat yourself to some delicious vegan cupcakes? You don't have to be an expert baker to whip up these cupcakes, and they're packed with flavor! You can customize the flavor of these cupcakes by using different types of milk, oils, and extracts. So go ahead and get creative with your own unique flavor combinations.

The recipe included here features some of my personal favorites, but feel free to get creative and make it your own. Making cupcakes is also a fun activity that you can share with family and friends. And don't forget about the frosting – a simple mixture of cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and a hint of orange juice will take your cupcakes to the next level. Trust me, they'll be the talk of the town! So, why not give it a try? With a little bit of time and effort, you could have a batch of these delicious cupcakes all to yourself. Here's a simple recipe for delicious vegan cupcakes:


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup of plant-based milk, like almond, soy, or oat milk.

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat the Oven:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line cupcake tin with liners for easy removal and uniform cupcakes.

Mix Dry Ingredients:

In a large mixing bowl, carefully combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt, making sure that all the dry ingredients are blended together harmoniously. You want to ensure that each ingredient is evenly distributed throughout the mixture, as this will affect the taste and texture of your final product.

Using a whisk or fork, slowly blend the ingredients together until they are fully integrated. Take your time and make sure there are no lumps or clumps left behind. As you blend, notice the color and texture of the mixture, making sure that it becomes a seamless and harmonious blend.

Combine Wet Ingredients:

In a separate bowl, mix together the non-dairy milk, vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract.


Plant-Based Milk: Experiment with different plant-based milks like almond, soy, oat, or coconut to enhance flavor.

Flavor Extracts: Add natural extracts like vanilla, almond, or citrus for an extra layer of flavor.

Apple Cider Vinegar: Consider adding a small amount of apple cider vinegar, as it can enhance the leavening and add a subtle tang.

Fruit Purees: Incorporate fruit purees like mashed bananas, applesauce, or pumpkin for moisture and natural sweetness.

Nuts and Seeds: Add chopped nuts or seeds to the batter for texture and a nutty flavor.

Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.


Spices and Herbs: Experiment with spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom for a warm and aromatic touch.

Fill Cupcake Liners:

Take a generously sized mixing bowl and add the required amount of flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt to it. Ensure that you measure the ingredients precisely to maintain the correct balance of flavors. Use a spoon or whisk to gently blend the dry ingredients together until you get a consistent and uniform mixture. Make sure there are no lumps or clumps left in the mixture, as it can affect the quality and texture of the final product. Finally, check with your fingers that there are no hard particles in the mixture before proceeding with the next step.


Place the filled cupcake trays into the preheated oven and let the magic happen for about 18-20 minutes. Keep a watchful eye and check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center; it should emerge clean when the cupcakes are perfectly baked.


Allow the cupcakes to sit in the warmth of the tin for a brief moment, so they can absorb the residual heat. Then, with gentle care, transfer these little delights to a wire rack, giving them the freedom to cool completely and mature into the delicious treats they are destined to be.

Frosting (Optional):

Once the cupcakes are completely cool, you can frost them with your favorite vegan frosting.


Frosting Varieties: Explore different vegan frosting recipes using ingredients like coconut cream, vegan butter, and powdered sugar. You can also add flavors like cocoa or citrus to the frosting.

Chocolate Chips or Chunks: Toss in vegan chocolate chips or chunks for a delightful chocolatey surprise.

Sweeteners: Choose natural sweeteners like maple syrup or agave nectar for a more complex sweetness.

Coffee Infusion: Consider adding a bit of strong brewed coffee to intensify the chocolate flavor.

Texture Contrast: Include ingredients that provide texture contrast, such as shredded coconut or finely chopped dried fruit.


Enjoy your delicious vegan cupcakes!

Customize your cupcakes with diverse flavors and artistic decorations. Let your creativity run wild, turning each cupcake into a unique masterpiece! Whether you're making chocolate, vanilla, or any other flavor, vegan cupcakes are a delightful treat for everyone. 

To make sure your delicious cupcakes look their best, give the icing some extra time to set in the fridge before serving. And if you have more cupcakes than you can eat, don't worry – the un-iced vegan cupcakes can be frozen for up to three months. Simply wrap them tightly and they'll be ready to enjoy whenever you need a sweet treat.
