Now, today, i am aware exactly what you’re thinking – last week you published a recipe for creamy chicken and rice soup, amIright? Fair sufficient. I’ve been making these vegan red velvet cupcakes for years! I came across all of them during my vegan “exploratory” duration (performedn’t end well, obviously) and had been so blown away which they became my go-to recipe ever since. I’ve most likely made this dish, oh, thirty times in my life, I kid you not.
Indeed, I made these suckers for O as he came over for supper the very first time. I'd a dozen casually strewn about on a cupcake stand–casually–like I whipped up a batch according to my tempestuous craving du jour. A few months later, he proposed. Coincidence?
What do you believe?
These vegan red velvet cupcakes are so, so wet, with just the most perfect level of cocoa, a powerful depth of flavor, and just an ideal texture. Normally, if you're not vegan, you can top all of them with regular, ole omnivorean cream-cheese frosting like i did so, nonetheless it’s an easy task to replace down vegan-friendly cream cheese, like Tofutti, and butter, like Earth Balance.
Have you ever heard of “Vegan Cupcakes dominate the World”? No matter if you’re an animal meat and butter-eater, you might have heard about the total glory of Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s amazing dishes. No pity, there’s no adaptation here; i take advantage of her dish verbatim.
A few months straight back I uploaded my ultimate favorite recipe for red velvet cake, so just why the alteration of heart, you ask? No modification! I love that super thick, awesome damp, somewhat much more involved dish for layer cake, and I wouldn't stray–never, I say! But for a quick batch of cupcakes, this awesome easy, super easy, no-mixer-involved dish is my permanent go-to.
The perfect purple velvet cupcakes simply happens to be vegan!

- Fill cupcake liners about two-thirds full (these cupcakes will rise fairly large). Place in preheated range and bake 18 to 20 mins, but be sure not to overbake. Make use of a toothpick inserted in the center to tell-the toothpick will undoubtedly be purple, but there should not be any batter or gooey crumbs sticking. When done, let cool off for several minutes after that move cupcakes to air conditioning rack to cool off entirely.
- Frost with cream-cheese frosting. These look especially awesome with a piped swirl! Take to a Wilton 2A circular tip to obtain a great swirl.
