January 19, 2015


Do you need a taste of sunshine? If so, these cupcakes are just what you need!


Cupcake Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 TBSP vinegar

5 TBSP oil

2 tsp vanilla

1 cup water

3 drops Orange essential oil




1.  Preheat oven to 350°F

2.  Combine dry ingredients in a glass or metal* mixing bowl and mix thoroughly

3.  Mix wet ingredients except for the essential oils in a separate bowl and stir to combine.

4.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until you get a smooth batter.  Do not beat (can use Kitchen Aid mixer on 2 lowest speeds).

5.  Add Orange essential oil and mix well.

6.  Pour into paper lined cupcake molds (any size) filling each to 3/4 fullness.

7.  Bake in oven until tooth pick comes out clean (about 12-15 min. for mini cupcakes, 20 minutes for regular cupcakes, and longer for large cupcakes).


Frosting Ingredients:

4 oz cream cheese

2 TBSP butter

1 cup Powdered Sugar (or more for desired consistency)

3 drops Orange essential oil


Frosting Instructions:

Beat ingredients together in a glass or metal bowl with metal beaters* adding more powdered sugar as necessary to obtain desired consistency/thickness.  Frost cupcakes once cooled.


Eat and savor a taste of sunshine and happiness!


*Glass or metal bowls and utensils (silicone is also acceptable) are required when using essential oils since essential oils can break down plastics.


Note: I only recommend using certified pure essential oils.


I used 2 different recipes to come up with this recipe:  An allergy-free cake recipe by Kathy Przywara and Wild Orange Cream Cheese Cupcakes recipe found on allnaturalessentialoils.wordpress.com.
