FAQ Vegan Christmas Cupcakes
It is possible to have vegan christmas cupcakes that taste amazing. They aren’t necessarily going to be more oily but the vegan cupcake recipes do require some tweaking with the wet ingredients and/or dry ingredients in order to make sure that they turn out okay.
Let’s go over the ingredients you need to make any vegan cupcake recipe:
– Flour (pastry or cake flour will give you the best cupcake, but All purpose works too).
– Baking powder u0026 baking soda.
– Salt (yes it 100% necessary and actually makes desserts sweeter!).
– Plant-based milk (any works like oat milk, coconut milk, or soy milk).
– Oil, Vegan Butter, Vegan margarine, Dairy-free butter (serves as the fat needed to keep this cupcakes moist…earth balance is great for vegan cupcake baking!).
– Sugar, dark brown sugar, light brown sugar, coconut sugar (make sure to use organic to keep it vegan!).
– Vegan butter and powdered sugar (for the frosting part of these recipes).
A gluten-free flour blend is key to creating the perfect vegan gluten free cupcake texture. Almond flour smells just like cake and provides a crumb texture. Potato starch makes them light and fluffy. And cornstarch adds structure.
