Funfetti Cupcakes

  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup┬ásugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup almond milk (room temperature)*
  • 1 tsp distilled white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil**
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup rainbow sprinkles

Vanilla Frosting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Fill a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
  2. In a bowl, combine almond milk and distilled white vinegar. Set aside for 5 minutes. After, add melted coconut oil and vanilla extract. Mix together.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix together.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix together until just combined; do not overmix. Stir in the rainbow sprinkles.
  5. Using a measuring cup or a large cookie scoop, spoon the batter into the cupcake pan. Fill each slot 3/4 full, leaving enough room for the batter to rise while baking.
  6. Bake cupcakes for 20-25 minutes. Remove cupcakes from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes (inside the pan) before removing them to cool completely.
  7. After the cupcakes have cooled, top with vegan vanilla frosting and rainbow sprinkles. Enjoy!
