Yield 12 cupcakes
Time 30 minutes
Tools
  • muffin pan
  • 3 bowls
  • whisk
  • electric mixer
  • toothpick or butter knife
Ingredients
  • ½ c plus 2 T non-dairy milk
  • ¼ c orange juice
  • 1 t orange zest
  • 2 t ground flaxseeds
  • 1/3 vegetable oil
  • 1/3 c plus 1 T sugar
  • 1/3 c brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 c smooth cashew butter
  • 1 c plus 2 T flour
  • ¾ t baking powder
  • ½ t baking soda
  • ½ t salt
  • 1 t cardamom
  • ¼ t cinnamon

Frosting

  • 1/3 c smooth cashew butter
  • 3 T margarine, softened
  • 1 t vanilla
  • ½ c maple syrup
  • ½ t cardamom
  • ½ c soy milk powder
Directions Preheat oven to 350. Lightly oil the muffin pan or drop in paper liners.

Combine milk, orange juice, orange zest, and flaxseeds and beat until frothy. Add oil, both sugars, and cashew butter and beat another minute.

In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients.

Gradually add dry ingredients to wet and beat for about 2 minutes. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full and bake for 22-24 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the frosting: beat cashew butter and margarine on low until pale and thick. Add vanilla, syrup, and cardamom and beat for another minute, then add the milk powder in two batches. Place in refrigerator until you’re ready to frost the cupcakes.

When a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean, remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool completely before frosting generously.

Notes Without frosting, I think this recipe makes a terrific breakfast: Cashew Cardamom Muffins.

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the WorldI suspect it would also be good with other nut butters, like peanut butter or almond butter.

This recipe is from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World (read my review), in which it’s called "Cashew butter cardamom cupcakes with rich cashew butter frosting."
