Turkish Delight Cupcakes... Vegan Mofo Day 28...

Vegan Mofo is almost over! How sad.
I made these cupcakes last night and took them to the Cranker for Annie's Birthday. Might I just say they are entirely delicious and quite a success. Beware of the monster sugar rush.

Makes: 12
Time: Forty Minutes. 


  • 2 Cups of flour.
  • Three quarters of a cup of raw sugar.
  • 3 teaspoons of baking soda.
  • One third of a cup of apple sauce.
  • Half a cup of veggie milk (I used rice milk).
  • One third of a cup of light oil (I used canola).
  • Half a teaspoon of vanilla essence.
  • Half a cup of cocoa.
  • 2 Tablespoons of rose water.

Mix all of the ingredients is a bowl, preferably with a hand blender so that it's all lovely with no lumps. 
Pour into a greased muffin container or 12 patty pans.
Bake in an oven at 180C or 375F for about 20 minutes or until the cakes are springy to touch and you can poke a skewer in them and they will come out clean.
Place on a cake rack to cool completely before topping with icing.

The Most Important Part: Icing.

  • 2 Cups of icing sugar.
  • 2 Tablespoons of rose water.
  • 1 Tablespoon of veggie butter, such as nuttelex.

Mix in a bowl with a fork until the ingredients have come together and are stiff.
Place about a tablespoon full onto each cake and top with something pretty. 


  1. Hey Sally, it looks like you were going to write a figure or how many tbsp of rose water for the cupcakes because there's a blank space. Was it 2 tbsp, maybe?
    Also, do you recall how long you baked yours for, as a guestimate?
    I may have to make these in the morning. Delish! Thanks for another great post. :)

  2. Oh Gosh! You are right. Sorry! I was in a bit of a hurry when I wrote this, It should be fixed now. THank you! :)

  3. A veggie butter, like nuttelex. :)

  4. Delicious and super moist! Thanks for sharing!
