Preparation

  1. Start by preparing frosting. Mash blackberries to a pulp in a small bowl with a fork. Add all frosting ingredients to a food processor and blend for 7-8 minutes, until really smooth and creamy. Stop and scrape down the sides of the processor as needed. Set aside frosting to chill in the fridge.
  2. Heat oven to 360°F and line a cupcake tin with 10 cases.
  3. In a large bowl, beat coconut sugar, butter and molasses together until smooth. Add in flax eggs and mix again to combine. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add soy milk and mix with a spoon. The batter should be thick, but pourable. Spoon batter into cupcake cases about 2/3 of the way full.
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.
  5. Fill a piping bag with a large star tipped nozzle and spoon in blackberry frosting. Swirl on top of cupcakes and top with sprinkles and blackberries.
  6. Enjoy!
