Soft, fluffy, and moist spiced apple cider cupcakes. They are 100% plant-based, and simple and easy to make.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and powder, spices, and salt. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the sugars, applesauce, apple cider, and vanilla until smooth. On medium speed, slowly add the dry mixture into the wet until no flour streaks remain (making sure not to over mix). Use a small cookie scoop to distribute two scoops of batter into each cupcake liner.
Bake cupcakes for 20-25 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean (a few moist crumbs is fine). Allow cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.
While cupcakes are cooling, prepare the frosting. Using the stand mixer again with the paddle attachment, combine the vegan butter, powdered sugar, and cinnamon. Mix on medium speed. While mixing, slowly pour in milk and vanilla until creamy.
Frost each cupcakes and garnish with a dash of cinnamon.
