Dairy Free Vanilla Cupcakes
Dairy Free Vanilla Buttercream
- Begin by preheating oven to 350°F (175°C), and place cupcake liners in baking pans.
- Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to a large bowl, and gently combine with a large spoon or whisk.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together Malibu Mylk Slightly Sweetened, vegetable oil, egg or apple sauce, vanilla extract and alternative yogurt. Mix until the batter comes together.
- Fill the cupcake liners about 2/3 way full. Bake for 19 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.
- Allow the cupcakes to cool for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack to finish cooling. If you want to accelerate the cooling process, pop the pans into your freezer for about 30 minutes.
Dairy Free Buttercream Frosting
- Beat the shortening on a medium speed for 30 seconds with a paddle attachment, until smooth.
- Mix in the vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste and salt on a low speed. If desired, add in an additional tsp of almond, coconut, or lemon extract.
- Slowly add in the powdered sugar in two installments. Alternate with Malibu Mylk Slightly Sweetened.
- Mix on low for a couple minutes until the ingredients are fully incorporated and the desired consistency is reached.
- If the frosting is too thick, add in additional cream (1 tsp at a time). If the frosting is too thin, add in more powdered sugar (quarter of a cup at a time).
- Place the buttercream in a piping bag fit with your favorite frosting tip, and pipe large swirls onto the fully cooled cupcakes.
- Garnish as desired, then enjoy!
