Vegan Gingerbread Cupcakes

Vegan gingerbread cupcakes with cinnamon vanilla “butter”cream frosting

Vegan Gingerbread Cupcakes

Gingerbread is the quintessential holiday dessert! I already posted my recipe for the Best Vegan Gingerbread Cookies, so I thought I’d expand on the theme with these Vegan Gingerbread Cupcakes. These cupcakes are light and delicious and they’re the perfect combination of rich molasses with the tastiest warming spices. The cupcakes are topped with a cinnamon vanilla “butter”cream frosting that whips up in minutes. 

These cupcakes are a fun and festive treat for any holiday party!

These cupcakes are a breeze to make. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and place liners in a cupcake tray. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine the wet ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the cupcake liners and bake for 20-23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. 

For the frosting, use a mixer or hand beater to mix all the frosting ingredients together until light and fluffy. Let the cupcakes cool and apply frosting using a piping bag.
