Vegan Rose Water Cupcakes



  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 3 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan or guar gum
  • 1/2 cup and 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp rose water
  • Buttercream Frosting:
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp beetroot powder
  • 1/2 tsp rose water


  1. Cupcakes:
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the rice flour, brown rice flour, tapioca flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda and xanthan gum. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the almond milk, oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract and rose water.
  5. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix until well incorporated. It will have the consistency of a pancake batter. Let batter rest for about 10 minutes.
  6. Fill muffin liners to about 3/4 full. Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. I baked mine for 30 minutes. Let cool at room temperature in the pan before removing them.
  7. Using a piping bag fitted with a star tip, pipe the frosting on each cupcake.
  8. Cupcakes are better served the same day but are still very soft on day 2. Store at room temperature in a airtight container and add frosting only if eaten the same day.
  9. Buttercream Frosting:
  10. Beat the butter with the powdered sugar, beetroot powder and rose water until fluffy and light. You can do it by hand or with a stand mixer.
