Super soft, cute, and vegan.


Here is the recipes for the chocolate cupcakes I baked the other day. Glad lots of you were interested in it!


Here are the ingredients I’ve used, with the measurements.

With this dosage, I’ve only made 6 regular size cupcakes (which is plenty for just me and Felix). If you are planning on making more for a party, keep that in mind!

Also, if you don’t have macadamia milk, any kind of dairy-free milk will do (will slightly change the taste), and same with the almond oil (canola oil is an alternative). If you wish to only have one flavouring, that’s also fine (instead of almond and vanilla) and if you don’t like cinnamon, go ahead and remove it.

Basically, you can change any flavours with what you prefer! πŸ™‚


The first thing to do is to mix the liquids, together with the sugar. About the sugar, actually, if you prefer a sweeter taste, you may wanna add more – I just find that once the icing is on, cupcakes get very sweet, so I want the base to be a bit more neutral. Up to you!


Now mix the powders (flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cocoa powder) with a spoon.


Simply mix the two with a whisk. Take your time, and make sure all the big lumps are gone.


When you have a smooth mixture, pour it into your cupcake tin.


I baked them for exactly 18 minutes on 190*C. Pinch the middle with a toothpick to check if they are properly done, in case you are unsure.

As you can see, my cupcakes didn’t turn out smooth on top, but this texture made them so inviting! haha

They are the softest cupcakes I’ve ever eater. But I do think that adding the icing makes a great difference.


I already had vanilla icing at home, so I didn’t make that from scratch, and I applied it once the cupcakes cooled down a bit.

Then I went ahead and adorned them with these cake toppers, which I’ve found at Berts.

    Whooaa so early for new post. Lucky day I guess :p
    Thank you for sharing this recipe! This cupcake really makes me feel festive. It also looks delicious. Also can you tell me where’s the candle from the first picture? hehe I’m just wondering what does it smell like.

    Oh these look amazing! I’m trying to incorporate more vegan recipes into my life and cakes and desserts is where I’ve been struggling the most, so I’ll definitely definitely be trying this! The texture of the top of the cupcake kinda makes it look like a cute cupcake-muffin hybrid!

    Those look amaze! Would bake these for my friends, but I also have to keep in mine that one of them is lactose intolerant and another is gluten intolerant. 😹 I wanted to bake a cake for all my friends but it’s so daunting to try making a gluten free cake. But I’ll probably try them out

    They look so perfect 😭 I love Christmas and this is such an awesome thing to do for the Holidays! Also, did you go fully Vegan? Or are you still Vegetarian? How is it to not eat meat because I really want to give it up. Hope you’re having a nice day! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

      I’m vegetatian, but I do try to avoid dairy and eggs when I can cause I’m intolerant to both. πŸ˜› Not eating meat is totally fine, I actually like the taste of fake chicken better, and there is lots of replacements for meats out there, so it’s easier than you think! ^_^

    Hi Marzia!

    Those look delicious! I wish I could take a bite out of those cupcakes right now! I have a suggestion for another festive recipe that I think you would really enjoy. They are called mincemeat muffins and don’t worry, there is not actual meat in it. Mincemeat is also the name used for a mix of mashed up fruit, berries and spices (spices like cinnamon) which is used in this recipe. I think they would be great to make. I hope you try it out!

    Christmas wishes from

    Thanks for the recipe, Marzia, I’m going to try to make these later!

    This is off topic now, but how do you get your hair looking so voluminous and healthy? Do you think one day you could share your hair care tips on your blog? My hair is always so flat and is a little thin, and your hair always looks so volumized and beautiful!

    I love how quick and easy your recipes are Marzia! Usually I tend to shy away from cooking and trying out new recipes because they always seem way too advanced for me πŸ˜‚ but now I seriously can’t wait to make these and decorate them for Christmas ^_^ ✨

    Love this!! I love any help with vegan recipes and finding recipes that are actually delicious! Especially since I’ve been trying real hard to make the leap from being vegetarian to vegan!

    these look super good, I will make some for the holidays for my family and friends to try. I love making people try new things, so I will probably not tell them they are vegan to see what they think of them at first.

    These look amazing Marzia! I’m not a vegan nor vegetarian myself but recently i’ve been trying out vegan cookies made by a small cafe near my town and i adore vegan pastries now β™‘
    I’m pretty sick also, so laying in bed reading your blogs and drinking a warm cup of honey & tea suits this moment so well. Love from South America.

    I MUST try these! They look so nice! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and hope you’re having a good time in Stockholm! You need to tell us how the trip was πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺ

    I did an entry on my blog about my San Francisco trip, I took a lot of recommendations you gave me, thanks you so much! If you can, please go and check it out. Any suggestion will be welcome to keep improving πŸ’•

    Love you Marzia, happy holidays!

    These cupcakes look so delicious! I have made vegan cupcakes before but the texture always turns out questionable. I will definitely be making these since they come out soft and fluffy! I’ll be making these very soon. Thanks for the recipe Marzia!
