Grapefruit Cupcakes


Cake Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup organic soy milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2/3 cup agave nectar
  • 1/3 cup safflower oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 3-4 drops grapefruit essential oil

Frosting Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 3 drops grapefruit essential oil


Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line a 12 cup muffin tin or 24 mini muffin tin with paper liners.

Combine milk and vinegar in a medium bowl, and stir until mixture bubbles.  Add agave nectar, oil and vanilla.  Stir until combined.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until no lumps remain.

Pour batter into muffin tin and bake for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean and the tops are slightly springy when pressed.  Cool the cupcakes before frosting.

For the frosting:  cream all ingredients together and then put in a pastry bag to frost the cupcakes.

After frosting the cupcakes, you can add a slice of fresh grapefruit as a garnish if desired.
