I promise you that even the most diehard of omnivores will not suspect these cupcakes are vegan! But of course they are... and they're really, really delicious.
● 1 cup soy milk
● 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
● 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp granulated sugar
● 1/3 cup vegetable oil
● 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
● 1 cup all-purpose flour
● 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp cocoa powder
● 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
● 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
● 1/4 teaspoon salt
Icing: I usually do a basic dark chocolate hot water icing. To make this, I use a 4:1 ratio of icing sugar to cocoa powder; add in just enough hot water to allow the icing to spread easily, a dash of vanilla, and mix until smooth. You can also add vegan* 100's & 1000's or rainbow sprinkles for a pop of colour!
*Always look out for number E120 (red colouring made from beetles). I've also noticed that some brands coat their sprinkles in beeswax.
