Lemon Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting (Vegan)

By Peaceloveorganicmom
Lemon Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting (Vegan)I love desserts that incorporate lemons in the summer-- something about sweet mixed with sour is just so delicious on a hot day. So I recently came up with this super tasty recipe for lemon cupcakes and they are amazingly good. They taste equally great warm out of the oven or chilled. Also, they are vegan so no eggs or butter are used but they are still incredibly moist. So try this recipe out on one of the hot summer days coming up and let me know what you think!
