This recipe comes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. I use it all the time, even when I’m not baking for vegans.
You will need:
- 1/2 cup margarine, softened
- 4 Tbs. shortening
- 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 Tbs molasses*
- 3 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 & 1/2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
- 2-4 Tbs soy milk
*I would skip this, unless you’re a HUGE molasses fan. You could also cut the amount down, but why bother?
- With an electric mixer, cream together margarine and shortening until smooth.
- Add peanut butter, molasses if using and vanilla, beat until very smooth.
- Beat in sugar, mixture will be very stiff.
- Dribble in soy milk a little at a time, beating continuously until frosting is pale and fluffy.
