Vegan Cake/Cupcake Recipes

Baking vegan cakes is not as tricky as one might think it is. Yes, it needs some tweaking to be made and sometimes requires few additional ingredients, but procuring the same should not be an issue if you regularly bake vegan cakes and other vegan baked treats.

Vegan cake recipes usually call for ingredients like unsweetened applesauce, silken tofu, non-dairy yogurt, and vinegar to replace the eggs in the original recipe. Also, non-dairy milk and non-dairy butter are in some recipes. Vegetable oil can be used for the fat proportion in the recipe, but in some vegan cake and cupcake recipes, vegan butter would give the desired result.

Just like regular cake and cupcake recipes, vegan cake recipes can also be used to make vegan cupcakes and vice versa. That should not be a problem.

Here is the list of vegan cake and vegan cupcake recipes that I tried and came out good. All these recipes have step-by-step procedures with pictures. Check them out.

    • gabi

      I would like to check out your blog SunnyCakez… can you give us a link?? I had found a Chocolate cake online that used shredded zucchini, carrots and other items and it sounded great. My computer shut down or I hit the wrong button and now can’t find it. I’m interested in really healthy snacks, cakes, cookies, and other main dishes as well.. Would really like to get some info. Just a newbie testing the waters of Vegan. Met someone who eats only RAW, which was also good, but I need to have some things that are cooked as well.

      Hope to hear back from you and your link to your blog as well.

    Hi, recently I had eggless lemon cake with Lemon Frosting at a restaurant and had fallen in love with the taste. I can’t seem to get the eggless recipe anywhere. Do you know the recipe and if so could u share it? Thanks.

    • Madhuram

      Hi Jagruti, I have not baked a lemon cake so far, but I’m guessing that you could use this Easy Eggless Vanilla Cupcakes recipe as a base and substitute the orange juice and zest with lemon juice and lemon zest. Use about 5 teaspoons of lemon juice, about 1/2 tablespoon of zest and 1/2 cup water instead.
