Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oat milk or other mild-flavored plant milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 6-muffin tin with paper cupcake liners.
  • In a measuring cup, whisk together the milk and apple cider vinegar. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Into a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar. Using a handheld mixer on medium speed, mix for 1 minute, until light and fluffy.
  • Mix in the vanilla and almond extracts.
  • Add 1/2 of the oat milk mixture and 1/2 of the flour mixture. Continue mixing to combine.
  • Add the remaining milk and flour mixtures, mixing just until fully incorporated. Do not overmix the batter; this collapses the bubbles in the batter and can lead to denser cupcakes.
  • Pour batter evenly into the cupcake liners.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack and let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.
