Vegan (Egg Free/Dairy Free) Vanilla Cupcakes

With many allergies now a days, or wanting a nice treat that can feed a vegetarian, I often get asked to make an eggless and dairy-less dessert.  This recipe is very simple and versatile.

Anyone can enjoy this simple vegan vanilla cupcake recipe.  Give it a try! This recipe will make 18 cupcakes.



Happy Caking!

    I think you should say how long to bake the cupcakes…. Also, the bot question should be before the Submit button.

    fyi. u must use a vegan sugar. regular sugar is not vegan, they use charred animal bones to bleach it. Florida Crystals makes a vegan sugar. Good luck

    Can you please do a tutorial on how to make the flower toppers! I always try and they end up looking non edible! Thanks!

    THANK YOU! I’ve been hoping you’d post a vegan recipe! I’ve referred to your blog for a long time, but recently changed to a vegan diet. I’m excited to try this recipe!
