These vegan friendly vanilla cupcakes have a delicious whipped buttercream and are topped with fresh berries. Gluten-free option included.
As much as I love wearing chunky sweaters and sipping hot cocoa, I look forward to springtime. Spring and summer produce is my favorite, especially berry season, as you can probably tell by the plethora of berries I use in my recipes. #sorrynotsorry
Berries not only complement the flavor of these simple vanilla cupcakes, they are such a beautiful and all-natural decoration on top too! These are a spin off of this Vegan Vanilla Cake with Strawberry Buttercream, a popular recipe here on the blog.
Everyone needs to have a good go-to cake/cupcake recipe for special occasions and this one definitely fits the bill. It’s also delicious, whether you’re vegan friendly or not. Because it doesn’t contain eggs, the cake is even more tender and moist than traditional cakes, which can sometimes be dry or spongy. If you consume dairy, just substitute regular milk and butter in place of the dairy-free ingredients.
These cupcakes are pretty with a light dusting of powdered sugar, but if you’re wanting to cut back on sugar, crushed freeze-dried berries are also make beautiful natural sprinkles!
