It’s 7:44 p.m. and I’m debating whether to make chocolate cupcakes. I really want a cupcake right now, but I don’t know if I want to worry with making them. However, if I was going to make chocolate cupcakes, with chocolate icing, this is the recipe I would use.
Whacky Vegan Cupcakes
- 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon vinegar
- 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 cup cold water
In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt. Make three wells in the flour mixture. In one put vanilla; in another the vinegar, and in the third the oil. Pour the cold water over the mixture and stir until moistened. Spoon into cupcake tins (fill 1/2 to 2/3 full). Bake at 350°F. oven for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in a cupcake comes out clean. Allow to cool before frosting.
- 2 cups organic powdered sugar
- ¼ cup vegan margarine, softened
- ¼ cup plain or soymilk
- ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ t. vanilla extract
Cream sugar into margarine with an electric mixer. Add other ingredients and continue to mix until smooth.
Wow. I really want a cupcake.
