Everyone loves these! We are not vegans, but this is my favorite cupcake recipe. They are moist, light and way better than anything out of a box. Plus I can make them with what I have on hand. I have used all kinds of milk for these (almond, coconut, soy or cow's). Oh and the book is amazing too. yum yum

I have been using this recipe for over a year and always have great results! My daughter has milk and egg allergies so this lets her enjoy a treat that she usually can't have. I'm a vegetarian so I love it for that reason as well. Also try using dark chocolate cocoa! Makes it even better!

I was skeptical because the batter was so runny but they came out perfect!
