Apple and Cinnamon Christmas cupcakes

I hope everyone had an amazing christmas yesterday.

I literally finished making these at about 11pm last night. Yep, they should have actually been for christmas day but I somehow found the inspiration to bake late, what can I say.


So, here is my Apple and Cinnamon cupcake recipe… VEGAN AND GLUTEN FREE 🙂 Some are topped with caramel icing and some with Spirulina icing. Both just as nice.

 

Ingredients – makes 11 cupcakes

1 1/2 cups of self raising Gluten free flour

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1 cup of milk – I used rice milk

2 tbsp of vegan butter

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda and 4 tbsp hot water – mix the two together

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 1/2 cup apple sauce

2 tsp of cinnamon powder

 

  1. Chuck all the sponge ingredients mentioned above into a bowl and stir until well combined. If the mixture is too thick, keep on adding a little bit of milk until it thins out.
  2. Pour evenly into cupcake holders and place into the oven for 25-30 minutes on 180º
  3. Make sure your cupcakes have completely cooled down before decorating them with icing.
