We had a potluck at work on Friday and I wanted to impress. I knew I wanted to work with pumpkin but I wasn’t sure what to bake! After much research I decided on Vegan Pumpkin Cupcakes with a Spiced “Cream Cheese” Frosting. I tested the cakes a few days before using whole wheat flour… My cupcakes turned into MUFFINS! Oh no! Good thing I had enough regular flour to bake with. When I baked the dozen for work I was so proud. My cakes rose! (Something that is very hard for vegan treats to do). The cream cheese frosting was a tad difficult for me, iI ended up using what felt like a ton of powdered sugar to help it set, but it turned out perfect. Ready to celebrate the holidays?

This was my first foray into vegan cupcake-baking, and, according to the reviews of all of my friends who tried the finished product, they are more moist and delightfully sweet than any egg-and-milk-filled competitor. This cupcake is a throwback to every one's favorite childhood (or adult!) combination of bananas topped with chocolate and peanut butter. And while there may be several steps, there are several substitutions along the way that make it easy to adapt for the cook on the go!

My love for chocolate, bananas and island vacations were the inspiration for this fabulous recipe. I threw in all my favorites to create a piece of holiday vacation in a decadent little tin that stands alone like an island. Moist cupcake with solid chocolate pieces, filled with the richest pudding filling I've ever experienced, covered with sweetness of fruit cream frosting and topped with crunchy chips to give everyone a little bit of what they secretly want!

This Vanilla Cupcake recipe makes light and airy vegan cupcakes that have a soft, tender crumb due to the addition of arrowroot flour as well as apple cider vinegar. Vanilla extract and a touch of almond extract tie it all together. These cupcakes utilize the quick bread method which involves mixing your dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls, then mixing them both together at the end. This is a really easy way to make great cakes that have tender and spongy qualities. The drawback of this style is you have to be careful if you adjust the amount of sugar; more sugar will tenderize the batter, negatively affecting rise. These cupcakes are a little under sweet for my taste but if you're going for an elaborate frosting job no one will notice. If you increase the sugar in this quick bread method by even 1 Tablespoon, the cupcakes won't rise enough so it's not recommended. Use these cupcakes as a base for other flavor variations by switching out some of the flour and/or flavoring extracts. If you're looking for a cupcake that's a little bit more sweet and full flavored check out the Vanilla Cupcakes - Cream Method.

This Vanilla Cupcake recipe makes soft vegan cupcakes that utilize the cream method which involves beating or creaming Vegan Butter or margarine and sugar together, beating in an egg replacing liquid then mixing in the flour and remaining liquid at alternating stages. This results in a cake that has a more substantial mouth feel and less crumbs partially due to the gluten in the flour becoming more activated from the mixing. This method also provides a more substantial rise that is less inhibited by sugar than cakes made via the quick bread method. This cupcake requires more preparation and is less tender and spongy but more flavorful due to the Vegan Butter or margarine and slightly increased sugar. Use these cupcakes as a base for other flavor variations by switching out some of the flour and/or flavoring extracts. If you're looking for a cupcake that's a little bit more fluffy and less sweet check out the Vanilla Cupcakes - Quick Bread Method.

This Rice Crispy Treat Cupcake recipe is the first thing I made after ordering Dandies Vegan Marshmallows from Chicago Soy Dairy. I feel like a kid again. Vegan baking doesn't get much easier than melting margarine, marshmallows, adding vanilla extract then mixing in puffed rice. Making the ganache is slightly more involved but still simple. Be sure to make these as close to your eating occasion as possible because Rice Crispy Treats love to dry out. If you need to make them a day or so beforehand, keep them in an air-tight container.
