By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 25 minutes


Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes:

1 and 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour (220g)

1 cup White Granulated Sugar (200g)

1 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 tsp Salt

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

1/3 cup Canola Oil (80ml) or Vegetable Oil*

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Tbsp Distilled White Vinegar

Strawberry Vanilla Frosting

1/2 cup Vegan Butter (112g)

3 cups Powdered Sugar (360g)

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

2 tsp Strawberry Extract


Fresh Sliced Strawberries optional


1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a cupcake tray with 12 cupcake liners.

2Sift the flour into a bowl and add the sugar, baking soda and salt.

3Then add the soy milk, vanilla extract, oil and white vinegar.

4Mix until just mixed, using a hand whisk to get rid of any big lumps. Don't overmix, tiny lumps are fine.

5Pour the batter into a jug that allows for easy pouring and pour evenly into the 12 cupcake liners, ensuring that all the batter is used up.

6Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Check the cupcakes at 20 minutes and if a toothpick inserted into the center doesn't come out clean, then put them back in for a further 5 minutes.

7Move to a cooling rack and allow to cool thoroughly before frosting.

8Prepare the frosting by adding the vegan butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and strawberry flavoring to an electric mixer bowl. Begin mixing on low speed, gradually increasing speed until you have perfectly smooth frosting.

9Decorate with fresh strawberry slices before serving (optional).
