This frosting keeps well at room temperature for a few hours, however if it starts to get too warm or you are not eating the cupcakes right away, place them in the refrigerator.

  • Divide batter evenly between muffin cups (scant 1/3 cup per cupcake). Bake until tops spring back when lightly touched, about 18 minutes. Cool 5 minutes in pan, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Top cupcakes with vegan frosting (about 3 tablespoons per cupcake).
