What could be better than bite-size red, white, and blue deliciousness to celebrate the Fourth of July? These Patriotic Vegan Cupcakes gave me wonderful opportunity to created one of my favorite vegan vanilla cake recipes to date. It's something I've been working on for some time — creating a light and flavorful vanilla vegan cake that didn't fall in the middle. I found the explosion of flavor I was looking for by adding a teaspoonful of raspberry jam to the cupcakes before baking adding a nice, colorful touch to the cupcakes.
I hope you'll enjoy these cupcakes with just the right balance of crispiness on the outside, tender cake in the middle and raspberry goodness throughout. Happy (and safe) Fourth of July to you all!
