Self Frosting Cupcakes

I’m Wendy, one of the co-founders of EVMG but my passion is cooking so most days you can find me over at Around My Family Table sharing easy recipes that the whole family will love.  I started thinking….I’ve been here for over two years and haven’t shared one single recipe.  Well, that’s changing today with these super easy Self Frosting Cupcakes.  This is totally perfect for a busy mom plus they look fabulous too!

Self Frosting Cupcakes

Everything goes into the oven at once and comes out perfect.  No need for a seperate frosting because the frosting is baked into the cupcake.  So good!  So easy! So perfect for everyone!  I can see taking these to my daughter’s class for her birthday celebration next week, to the Christmas potluck, and the next big family get together.

If you don’t follow AMFT then you don’t know that I’m dairy free, egg free, and gluten free.  That means all of my desserts are vegan.  STOP…Don’t run away.  I promise you can make these for your dairy eating friends too.  I use egg replacer for the eggs and soy-based “butter” and a vegan cream cheese alternative from Tofutti (I love their stuff).  I totally want you to give their products a try, my family used to use them even before I had to switch to dairy alternatives.  I’m not paid to use their products in my recipes, but I love them so I do.  They are, however; providing this awesome giveaway for you…so keep reading after the recipe for all the details!

Self Frosting Cupcakes

You can find Tofutti products in most stores or on Amazon.  For a truely vegan cupcake, you will need egg replacer as well, which is easily found on Amazon too.  Lastly, you can’t use butter, but rather soy baking sticks…they taste and work just like butter!

  1. I would love to get the ice cream sandwiches. My daughter had a dairy allergy when she was a baby and we really liked them.

  2. I also would love to try the ice cream sandwiches!! This recipe seems pretty simple, I’d love to make it

  3. Wayne Dougherty says

    I want to try the Jumbo Cheese Ravioli, but none of the stores near me carry it. I own stock in Tofutti Brands. I usually buy their products when I see them in the stores.

  4. Carlyn Parker says

    The blintzes look yummy. I’m a sucker for all things in a crepe!

  5. I’ve never heard of self frosting cupcakes before.
