So these have to be the best chocolate cupcakes I have ever tasted, vegan or not!!
Laura has made them a few times since lockdown, and I have to admit, the last time she made them, I told her not to, I was trying not to eat so much!
But who am I kidding, I have the willpower of a flea, especially when deliciously moist and chocolately cakes are on offer, with a smooth and creamy orange ganache frosting!!
The other wonderful thing about these cupcakes is they stay moist and delicious for days, that's if you have willpower and don't eat the lot in one sitting!
So Laura very kindly gave me her recipe and if you only ever make chocolate cupcakes once, you have to try this recipe, these are just insanely delicious, and a perfect wee treat for the weekend, or any day!
Delicious food is our main focus at the moment and there is no shame to turning to food for comfort during these trying times! We all need something to look forward to!
So if you love chocolate, I hope you give these cupcakes a go, I can guarantee they will put a smile on your face!!!
Here is the recipe
Ingredients makes 8 to 10 cupcakes
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix the wet ingredients in a jug.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until smooth.
The batter will be a bit liquidy.
Fill cupcake liners 3/4 of the way full.
Bake at 350 F/ 180 C for 17 to 19 minutes.
Mix together icing sugar with vegan butter and cocoa powder, add the zest of a large orange. You really need to use an electric mixer for the best results, mix for a few minutes, starting on a low setting gradually moving to a higher setting until smooth and creamy. Add plant milk if needed to desired consistency.
Once your cupcakes are cool, top them with chocolate frosting and enjoy!
