Vegan Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ cups unbleached white flour
  • ⅔ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups soymilk (or substitute other nondairy milk)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (or substitute white vinegar)
  • ⅔ cup sunflower oil
  • 1 ¾ cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Vegan Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cupcake Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°.

Line 2 muffin pans with paper liners.

Combine vinegar and soymilk and let sit. In another bowl, sift the flour, cocoa, cinnamon, soda, powder, and salt.

Add oil, sugar, and vanilla to the soymilk mixture and stir well. Sift dry ingredients into the wet and mix until smooth.

Fill the baking cups about ⅔ full.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, until when you insert a toothpick into the center of one, it comes out clean. This recipe made enough for a tray of minis, a tray of regular-sized, and a mini heart cake.

Vegan Snickerdoodle Icing Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup earth balance or homemade vegan butter
  • ¾ cup organic palm shortening
  • 3-4 tablespoons of soymilk (or substitute another nondairy milk)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 5 cups organic powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon (optional for garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (optional for garnish)

Vegan Snickerdoodle Icing Directions:

Whisk the butter, palm shortening, and vanilla using a handheld mixer or stand mixer.

Sift in powdered sugar, a cup at a time, adding soymilk when it gets too thick.

Pipe onto cooled cupcakes.

Mix cinnamon with sugar. Since I use organic raw sugar, the granules are bigger than white sugar, so I mixed mine using a mortar and pestle.
