Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes
(Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World)

Ingredients:
1 cup soy milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond or chocolate extract (I prefer chocolate – almond extract has quite a strong flavor)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius and line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners.

2. Whisk together the soy milk and vinegar in a large bowl and set aside for a few minutes to curdle. Add the sugar, oil,  and vanilla extract and other extract, to the soy milk mixture and beat till foamy. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add in two batches to the wet ingredients and beat till no large lumps remain (a few tiny lumps are okay!)

3. Pour mixture into liners, filling 3/4 of the way. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cupcake comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely before icing.

For the icing, I just used a plain chocolate icing: 2/3 cup of cocoa powder, 3 cups of icing sugar and enough warm water to make a paste.. ice your cupcakes and sprinkle with some 100s and 1000s and you’re all done!

      Bonsoy is Luke’s favourite for coffee, he will use cows milk unless we have bonsoy. I just use sanitarium so good for baking and for cereal.. it is lovely and sweet so it works well.

      haha, it freaked me out as well. but really it wasn’t gross at all, it just looked the same to me! And even if it had curdled it wouldn’t have freaked me out as much as my imagination freaks out as I crack eggs into my baking! Eww chicken placentas haha.

    oh we so agree over eggs! whenever A is eating her “just” cooked googy-eggs I have to tell her every time that she’s eating REPRODUCTIVE GOOGY… so grosse!

    however, if it’s hidden in my cooking it’s all good.
