Plant-based baking hasn’t always been easy, but the game changes with our PC® Plant Based Butter Alternative, Salted. Frosting in particular is a challenge for plant-based bakers, for two reasons: Butter lends that smooth, creamy texture, and icing sugar – which is not always considered vegan (animal products can sometimes be used in processing) – gives it body and structure. After several rounds of testing, we found that delicious plant-based frosting is possible (and actually pretty easy!) when you mix together our creamy PC® Plant Based Butter Alternative, Salted thick natural peanut butter and a touch of agave for sweetness.

How to make

  • Step 1

    Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Line 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.

  • Step 2

    Whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda in large bowl; set aside. Whisk together milk, sugar, cocoa powder, melted butter alternative and vinegar in separate bowl until smooth and sugar is dissolved. Add milk mixture to flour mixture; whisk until smooth and no lumps remain.

  • Step 3

    Divide among wells of prepared muffin tin. Bake until toothpick inserted in centres comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool in tin 5 minutes. Transfer cupcakes directly to rack to cool completely.

  • Étape 4

    Frosting: Beat softened butter alternative with cold peanut butter in separate large bowl using electric hand mixer on medium speed until smooth, about 30 seconds. Scrape down side of bowl. Add half of the maple syrup; beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Beat in remaining maple syrup until smooth.

  • Step 5

    Pipe or spread frosting over cupcakes. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • Try this:

    Top frosted cupcakes with sliced fresh strawberries, raspberries or a drizzle of jam for a peanut butter and jelly vibe.
