Vegan Cupcakes !

Just look at these cupcakes. They turned out great and look fab too. My first time making them and they're perfect. :) The chocolate frosting is so rich, I was really surprised. Only a little bit is needed on the top. Mmmmm

Here's the recipe for the white cupcakes :
I got about 10 out of this mixture.

  • 1/2 tbsp white wine vinegar, I had no apple cider, but it worked just as well !
  • 180mls soy milk
  • 135g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 130g sugar
  • 50 ml oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  2. Put the vinegar and soy milk into a cup and stir thoroughly and set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix.
  4. In another bowl, add the soy milk mixture, oil and vanilla extract, and whisk together.
  5. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and whisk until it is smooth.
  6. Fill each muffin case to about 1/4 of the way up with batter.
  7. Bake for 15 to 20 mins, until you can stick something into one of the cakes and it comes out perfectly clean.
  8. Remove the cupcakes from the muffin tray and let stand on a wire rack for a couple of minutes.
  9. Let cool completely before applying the frosting.

And here's the yummy yummy frosting recipe:
  • 50g sugar
  • 2 tbsps corn flour
  • 1 & 1/2 tbsps cocoa
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 60 ml water
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a saucepan.
  2. Whisk in the water.
  3. Heat over a medium heat until it starts to get thick and boil, but only let it boil for 1-2 mins.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the oil and vanilla.
  5. Cool, and spread once the cupcakes have cooled completely.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did ! =D
