Zingy Lemon Butter(less)cream

The perfect topping for St Clement’s cupcakes, or possibly gingerbread – hmm, going to have to try that combo!

Zingy Lemon Buttercream (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan)

Inspired by a recipe in Vegan Cupcake Take Over the World

enough for a batch of cupcakes

  • 1/3 cup dairy-free spread
  • 2 tbsps vegetable fat
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 2 tbsps lemon juice

– Whisk together the spread and fat. Gradually whisk in the icing sugar, accompanied each time with a splash of lemon juice.

– Once all the ingredients are combined, whisk for a further couple of minutes of make extra smooth.

  1. Wonderful! I adore Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World – it’s our go-to baking guide too (kids are anaphylactic egg/nut) Looks like a good take on an icing recipe – will give it a go! Thanks!

      It’s such a great book isn’t it! Do you have any other favourites? … always looking for a new cookbook!! 🙂

      1. I do have a few, but they are on the hard drive of a PC in transit — if I remember, I’ll try and pop over and pass along a couple of titles when I get it back 🙂 I find that vegan recipes/cookbooks often have recipes that are a lot more flavourful than the ones that are specific to cooking for allergies 🙂 Have a great weekend!
