Blueberry Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Glaze

Or better yet the House of Pancakes will get a run for their money after tasting these bad boys!

Packed with so much flavor from cinnamon in the cupcakes loaded with blueberries and piled with maple buttercream and maple glaze!

A little starburst for “the butter pat” but be sure if you are 100% vegan you get starburst from the UK since here in the USA they are putting gelatin in it! Bleck! Boo!

Or you can simply make the butter pat out of fondant.

  1. D’oh! Just got back from the supermarket and you send me this! Missing some ingredients (sugar) so I’m off again. These look delicious and I will definitely be making them later. Are you sure you can’t post that cube fondant to HK? I can’t get anything like it here.

  2. Wow! The cupcake is so light and airy compared to the usual dense (or gummy) vegan baking recipes and it doesn’t use expensive Earth Balance sticks which are virtually impossible to find in my local area. Yea!! I made the non-vegan icing for half the batch and my New England hubby loved the combination of maple with blueberries and gobbled the batch. Thank you for a vegan recipe that works!
