Vegan Cookie Dough Cupcakes

I love cake and I love cookie dough. When I first discovered that there was a way of having BOTH at once I just had to work out a vegan version to share with you guys! This is a little bit more complicated than a normal cupcake recipe because the cupcakes have actual cookie dough in the centre, as well as cookie dough icing on top. Of course, if you’re only in it for the cookie dough, You can find my cookie dough recipe here. Regardless, here is my recipe for vegan cookie dough cupcakes!

These delicious vegan cookie dough cupcakes are perfect for any occasion, but go down especially well at birthday parties! Let me know how you get on in our comments section, and if you make any changes for variations.

Ingredients
  • For the Cupcakes (Dry)
  • 2 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 1/2 cups caster sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • For the Cupcakes (Wet)
  • 1 1/3 cups almond milk (soy will also work.)
  • 2/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • For the Cookie Dough Center
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • For the Icing/Frosting
  • 1 cup vegan margarine
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • a small handful of vegan chocolate (chopped small)
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 180c. In a large bowl mix together all your dry ingredients for the cupcakes, and in a separate bowl mix together your wet ingredients for your cupcakes.
  • Step 2 Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and whisk together until the mix just comes together, then divide evenly into your 24 cupcake cases.
  • Step 3 Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. To check if they are cooked, insert a cocktail stick into the centre of one of the cakes, if they are ready it will come out clean. Place on a cooling rack to cool.
  • Step 4 In the meantime cream together your margarine and brown sugar for your cookie dough centre. Add your vanilla, almond milk and salt, then your flour. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and you’re good to go!
  • Step 5 Once your cupcakes are slightly cooled, use the large side of an icing nozzle (or something similar) and make a hole in each cupcake by pressing it into the centre. Use a teaspoon to remove the section of cake (but don’t eat them! You still need them!)
  • Step 6 Roll your cookie dough centre into small balls and place one into the centre of each cupcake, and then press your removed cake back on to the top.
  • Step 7 Wait until the cupcakes have completely cooled before icing them, but once they are cool cream together the margarine, brown sugar, vanilla and almond milk. Add your icing sugar and then your flour and salt. Stir in your chopped chocolate.
  • Step 8 Pipe on to the cakes using a large nozzle so your chocolate doesn’t get stuck. At this point, you can either leave them as they are after this or sprinkle with mini vegan chocolate chips or I used my remaining cookie dough to make little balls to go on top too! if you try any other vegan toppings, let me know (I think crushed Oreo’s would also work great!).
