Are you ready to make these amazing mini pumpkin cakes?
Prepare all of your ingredients, and let's go to the kitchen! This cake is very easy to make and require just a few ingredients.
Start by combining all the dry ingredients. For this recipe you will need:
- Gluten-free oat flour
- Rice flour
- Brown sugar
- Spices: Cinnamon, nutmeg
- A pinch of salt
- Baking powder
After combining those ingredients, add in the wet ones. In this case, soy milk and pumpkin puree. Easy, right? Create a nice and creamy batter and bake it in round-shaped for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the most important part, which is frosting. In a larger bowl combine vegan butter or plant-based margarine, sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon juice.
You need a hand mixer to create such a creamy and fluffy frosting. If you see the bubbles while mixing, you are basically done! This is how your frosting should look like.
Now, if you want to design your cakes with fancy decoration, use a piping bag and create various patterns, but you really don't need it. If you want to spread the frosting with a knife, it also ok! The choice is always yours.
But keep in mind that your cake should be at room temperature or colder if you want to put frosting on it. Otherwise, it will melt really easily.
These cute fall-inspired mini pumpkin cakes, that are also gluten-free and vegan, are just the perfect treat for a lazy fall afternoon. If you want to feel special, definitely bake these cakes this fall.
