Chocolate Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream

Always on the lookout for egg-free, dairy free recipes, I came accross this one http://www.chow.com/recipes/10794 and decided to give it a try. WOW! Delicious! So chocolatey and fudgy!!!



Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

(adapted from Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World 

  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a muffin pan with liners ( I made mini ones!) 

    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 to the soy milk mixture and beat until foamy.

    In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add in two batches to wet ingredients and beat until smooth and no large lumps remain.

    3.Pour into liners, filling 3/4 of the way. Bake 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely.

    And cupcakes need frosting of course! I adapted my vanilla buttercream recipe to create an espresso  flavored buttercream

    Espresso Buttercream Icing

    •  1 cup butter (at room temperature)
    • 3 cups icing sugar
    • 2 tsp freshly brewed espresso (or strong coffee) I used freshly roasted and brewed Costa Rican espresso.

    In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter and sugar. Add espresso/coffee. Continue beating until smooth and creamy.

    The recipe makes enough to ice 48 mini cupcakes or 24 regular size. The icing can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container, but allow it to sit at room temperature before using for the best consistency.

      This site really has all of the information and facts I wanted about this subject and didn’t
      know who to ask.

    11. Posted November 20, 2017 at 10:23 pm | #

      A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
      I believe that you should publish more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject
      but typically people do not speak about such
      subjects. To the next! Kind regards.

      Unquestionably imagine that which you said.

      Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest factor to
      keep in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as other people consider concerns
      that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit
      the nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing
      without having side effect , other folks can take
      a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

      If your mattress is latex, there’ll be a layer of hard
      foam which is filled up with chemicals. If thumb sucking is stopped ahead of the
      ages of four, usually teeth will go back to their normal
      place inside mouth and appearance less “bucked. First-time parents do not have any idea on what to organize for the upcoming arrival from the newborn baby.
