I'm a vegetarian but also I cook and bake vegan. Cupcakes are my favorite thing to bake and having just bought a cupcake decorating kit I love baking even more. I was looking for some good vegan cupcake recipes but every other recipe I looked at contained one too many ingredients or some odd ingredients. This recipe looked fun, fast and easy, and it was. I baked two batches. The first batch made 9 cupcakes, but I forgot to add the canola oil. The cupcakes still came out fine although they were more like fudge. The second batch I did add the canola oil and they came out perfect. They were soft and moist. It's hard believe these cupcakes are vegan. I didn'tmake the frosting, I used some leftover vegan frosting I made from another recipe but they were still great. I took them to work and shared them with my co-workers and they all loved them.
The Cupcakes: I wish there had been a baking time listed, because I'm too lazy to check them every 5 min! haha The Frosting: After making it, I'm assuming you're supposed to use powdered sugar instead of granulated. I learned too late! Side note: I used sweetened mimic creme instead of soymilk, because that's all I had. I think had I used the right soymilk it would have made these a four star, so I went ahead and gave them the benefit of the doubt. :)
