Wild Orange Cupcakes

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.
