Best ever vegan strawberry cupcakes
Ariana's Vegan Strawberry Cupcakes
1 12 oz package frozen strawberries, thawed
1 1/4 C coconut milk (can use regular milk)
2/3 C shortening or butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 3/4 C flour
Preheat oven to 375 and spray or line muffin tins. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the first four ingredients to a blender and puree. Pour contents of blender into bowl with cry ingredients and mix well. Fill muffin tins about 2/3 full and bake for 28 minutes. Cool on rack. Makes 24.
2 lbs powdered sugar
1/4 C butter-flavored Crisco
1/3 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
about half a package of frozen strawberries (around 6 oz).
Puree strawberries in blender and then mix with remaining ingredients. You may want to adjust the amount of powdered sugar to desired consistency. Frost cooled cupcakes, and refrigerate any leftover frosting (or eat it with a spoon :shifty eyes:).
I wish I had more/better pics, but just grabbed this with my phone before they disappeared. I might have to make another batch so that I can properly illustrate this post...
