Lemon Coconut Cupcakes

My cousin Courtney is having  day-long stag today, starting in the spa and ending with a drunken 4am breakfast at Denny’s (if all goes well).

I couldn’t make it to all the day’s activity’s  and I didn’t want to drop in at the spa empty handed. At first I thought Champagne but then I thought why would a bride want alcohol on her stag when she can undermine all that pre-wedding dieting and thousands of sit ups with cupcakes?

So I did a slight variation of cupcakes of I’ve done a few times on this blog before. Presenting: Coconut Lemon Cupcakes! They even look a little bridal.


In one bowl mix:

1.5 cups of flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 salt

Then separately mix:

3/4 cup of coconut milk (full fat version)

1/3 cup vegan butter

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp white wine vinegar

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Zest of 1 lemon

Mix the two together and cook at 350.

Nothing really new with the icing my friend Alison told me that she beats her icing for a really long time to make it extra fluffy and so I tried it with great results:

1-2 cups icing sugar (to get desired thickness)

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tsp vanilla

1 brick of Earth Balance shortening (probably like 1/2 cup if you’re using something else)

1/3 to 1/2 cup coconut milk

The bride getting pampered

PS. Also wanted to share this article on this new vegan chicken that is fooling meat eaters!

  1. Those are definitely some fancy cupcakes…definitely fitting for a bride to be. They belong on a cover of a vegan bridal magazine 🙂 I love that it has lemon in it.
