Frosted cupcakes are always a hit at birthday parties, and these gluten free vegan vanilla cupcakes are no exception. They are light and tender, infused with vanilla flavour, and a great way to celebrate any occasion.

Vegan Birthday Cupcakes

 1 cup non-dairy milk (e.g. soy milk or almond milk)
 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
 1.50 cups gluten free flour (I like to use Bob's Red Mill 1:1)
 0.25 cup almond flour
 2 tsp baking powder
 0.50 tsp baking soda
 0.25 tsp salt
 0.75 cup sugar
 0.50 cup vegan margarine (I use the stick margarine)
 1 tbsp vanilla extract
 0.25 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
 1 recipe of your favourite frosting

Preheat oven to 350C. Line muffin tin with paper muffin liners.
In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix the non-dairy milk and apple cider vinegar together. Set aside for a few minutes to allow it to curdle.


In a medium bowl, mix together the gluten free flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.


In a large bowl cream the sugar and margarine together until light and fluffy. This takes about 3-5 minutes.


Add the vanilla and almond extract. Mix for about a minute.


Add the non-dairy/vinegar mixture to the large bowl. Mix for a few minutes until well incorporated.


Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and stir for about a minute or until just combined.


Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups. Bake for about 22-25 minutes, or until golden on top.


Cool completely in muffin pan before removing and frost with your favourite frosting.
