Beautiful light and fluffy cupcakes with a lemon filling. So good that you won’t know they are vegan!


Ingredients (makes 12 cupcakes)

  • 1 1/4 cups Plain Flour
  • 3/4 cup Caster Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2/3 cup Almond Milk
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Caster Sugar
  • 2/3 cup Almond Milk
  • 250 ml Lemon Juice
  • 4 Tablespoons Corn Flour

Method

  1. Make the cupcakes first. Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius fan-forced oven. Line a cupcake pan with 12 cases.
  2. In a bowl mix plain flour, 3/4 cup caster sugar and baking powder together.
  3. In another bowl mix 2/3 cup almond milk, olive oil, apple cider vinegar and vanilla extract together. Pour these ingredients into the dry and mix that together. Mix until the batter just comes together - don't overmix.
  4. Evenly fill the cupcake cases. Bake 20 minutes until tops are lightly golden. Allow to cool.
  5. Combine the remaining ingredients into a saucepan and whisk until mixture thickens. If too thick add a little more lemon juice.
  6. When both cupcakes and curd are cool use a small sharp knife to hollow out each cupcake. Keep the piece you have removed and cut into two. Fill each hollow with curd and top with the little cake wings. Add a raspberry and a touch of icing sugar.

Notes... When I first started on my vegan journey the thing I struggled with most was vegan baking. To be completely honest I thought it sucked and I nicknamed my early creations vegan bricks. I simply could not get my head around how anything could taste as good without the eggs, milk, butter and cream. Eventually I discovered that baking could be just as light and just as decadent and appealing. These cupcakes are so versatile and so light and delicious. For an extra twist I have finished them with a lemon filling. As I am fond of saying - they are so good you would not even know they are vegan!

  • These looks delish, I am interested in vegan food but I don’t think I could fully make the switch unless i didn’t really notice it was vegan.

  • Bet the school PC police wouldn’t let this go past their eagle eyes in a lunch box. You’d have to put the recipe in the school lunch box every time. And they’d still say there’s too much sugar!

  • This recipe is perfect even if you are not a vegan. The ingredients are healthy and it taste Devine I think the almond milk made it even taste better.
