Preheat oven to 350* & if making mini cupcakes put cupcake wrappers into a muffin pan or if making like regular cake spray a baking pan w/ cooking spray.
In a medium bowl mix together, flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder & salt.
Add 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil. If you can't find coconut oil you can use shortening instead. Trust me it is worth finding the coconut oil.
Using a pastry cutter cut in coconut oil until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Put 1/2 cup of mixture into a small bowl. Add remaining2 tbsp of sugar & cinnamon & set aside.
In a small saucepan warm up but don't boil coconut milk. When it is just steaming a little pour into flour mixture & add beaten egg.
Stir until just combined.
Pour batter either into cupcake wrappers or cake pan. Take cinnamon mix & sprinkle over each cake & then pour melted Earth Balance over each cake. I messed up & poured the butter in with the mix 😓
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. These would have been prettier if I had paid attention & not mixed the Earth Balance in w/ the topping.
