Chef Jade’s Famous Cupcakes Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups 180g all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 113g vegan butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup 150g granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract optional
  • 3/4 cup 180ml plant-based milk (such as almond or soy)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, cream together the vegan butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the vanilla extract and almond extract (if using) to the butter-sugar mixture and mix until well combined.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the plant-based milk and apple cider vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes until it curdles slightly.
  • Alternate adding the dry ingredients and the milk mixture to the butter-sugar mixture, starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling each one about two-thirds full.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let them cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, frost them with your favorite vegan frosting and decorate as desired.
