Easy vegan vanilla cupcakes filled with butterscotch sauce and frosted with coconut whipped cream


  • 310 g plain all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 175 g melted vegan butter
  • 140 g icing sugar
  • 250 g plain soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 55 g water, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

    Coconut Cream Frosting

  • 60 g icing sugar
  • 2 cans Nature’s Charm Coconut Whipping Cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste


  • 1 jar of Nature’s Charm Coconut Butterscotch Sauce




  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F and line 12 cupcake tins with cupcake papers. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together all your dry ingredients and whisk until combined.
  3. In a separate small bowl, mix together all your wet ingredients and whisk until combined.
  4. Make a well in the middle of your dry ingredients and pour in the liquid ingredients. Mix together gently with a whisk until just combined.
  5. Using an ice cream scoop, divide the batter equally between the cupcake tins, filling each ¾ of the way to the top.
  6. Bake on the top rack of your oven for 12-15 mins, or until a skewer comes out clean with almost no cake crumbs. The tops should bounce back when touched.
  7. Allow to completely cool.

  2. Fill with Nature’s Charm Coconut Butterscotch Sauce.
  3. Fill your piping bag with your frosting and frost your cupcakes.
