This recipe was developed for a good friend's wedding and was very popular, even with non-vegan commercially made cupcakes being offered. They are requested often ever since.

  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Yields:
    18 s


  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance® Margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups Organic Unrefined Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Silken Tofu, blended
  • 1 1/2 cups Coconut Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups Unbleached White Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt



1. Cream together the Earth Balance® margarine and sugar until smooth. Add the vanilla and blend, then the tofu and blend some more. Pour in the coconut milk and blend until incorporated.

2. Add the flour, baking power and salt and blend until just mixed in.

3. Fill greased muffin tins, or cupcake cups about 2/3 full with batter.

4. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. When cupcakes are done, the top should spring back when lightly touched.

5. Coconut Frosting: Blend together 2 cups powdered sugar and 1/3 cup Earth Balance® margarine. Add 3-5 Tb of coconut milk, a little at a time, until you reach the desired texture. Stir in ½ cup shredded coconut. When frosting the cupcakes, dip the frosted top in more shredded coconut.

    These are such simple, pretty cupcakes that are absolutely delicious. The batter is very thick, and made a half dozen more cupcakes than stated (24, instead of 18). I was a bit hesitant about ruining the texture of the frosting by putting the shredded coconut in it, but it totally works. I followed the recipe almost exactly, only adding a 1/2tsp almond extract to the batter, and 1/2tsp coconut extract to the frosting.
