Afternoon Tea Recipes: Pretty Vegan Coffee Cupcakes
These little Pretty Vegan Coffee Cupcakes make beautiful hand-made edible gifts. They would also be a perfect treat for a dairy free Mother’s Day afternoon tea.
Coffee is one of my favourite ingredients to add to a cake and you can find the recipe for both my Dairy Free Vanilla Latte Cake and Vegan Mocha Cakes. The last few days in France have been lovely, no internet, no work and no TV so I have actually had time to write a few blog posts and try out some new recipes. You can read about our adventures in France as part of The Peachick Invasion series here.
This recipe makes 6 large cupcakes (muffin tray) and uses Betty Crocker buttercream which has no egg, soya or milk ingredients but does carry a warning that it may contain traces of milk. For a dairy free alternative just add 1tsp of instant coffee granules to your favourite buttercream recipe using a dairy free spread! Both sets of decoration are listed as suitable for dairy&egg free diets on the Waitrose website!
