🔪Prep Time: 20 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 25 mins

Ingredients

2 cups (250g) All Purpose Flour*

1 cup (200g) Light Brown Sugar

1 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

3 Tbsp Instant Coffee Powder

2 Tbsp Hot Water

1 cup (240ml) Soy Milk (or other non-dairy milk)

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/3 cup (80ml) Canola Oil*

1 Tbsp White Vinegar

1 Flax Egg (1 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed Meal + 3 Tbsp Hot Water)

3 cups (360g) Powdered (Confectioners) Sugar

1/3 cup (75g) Vegan Butter

1 Tbsp Instant Coffee Powder

1–2 Tbsp Soy Milk (or other non-dairy milk)

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Sprinkle Cinnamon

Instructions

1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a cupcake tray with cupcake liners.

2Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the brown sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and mix in.

3Mix the instant coffee with the 2 Tbsp of Hot Water into a thick paste and then mix into the soy milk (or other non-dairy milk). Add to the mixing bowl along with the vanilla, oil and vinegar.

4Prepare the flax egg by mixing 1 Tbsp of flaxseed meal with 3 Tbsp of Hot Water and allowing to sit for a minute to become gloopy and then add it in.

5Whisk the batter with a hand whisk briefly just to remove lumps. Divide the batter between the 12 cupcake liners and place into the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean.

6Allow to cool for a few minutes before moving the cupcakes to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

7Prepare your frosting by adding the powdered sugar and vegan butter to the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix the instant coffee with 1 Tbsp of soy milk and the vanilla until no lumps remain. Add this in. Starting at slow speed gradually increase speed until the frosting is thick and smooth. Add the remaining Tbsp of soy milk if needed. If your frosting is too thin add in more powdered sugar, if it is too thick, add in a little more soy milk a drop at a time until it reaches the right consistency. It should be very thick for best results.*

8Frost the cupcakes and decorate with a little cinnamon.
