Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing

VeganCooking's picture
An easy cupcake recipe from my book Are You Sure That’s Vegan? I usually make buttercream icing for these but decided to do something different and make chocolate icing instead. Enjoy
Ingredients
For the cake
  All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  White sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Baking powder 3 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Canola oil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Soy milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Unsweetened apple sauce 1 Cup (16 tbs)
For chocolate icing
  Icing sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Margarine 1 Cup (16 tbs), softened (I use Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks)
  Unsweetened cocoa powder 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Vanilla 1 Teaspoon
  Soy milk 3 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line muffin tins with cupcake liners.

MAKING
2. In a large bowl, combine all the cake ingredients and mix with a large spoon until all the ingredients are combined and there are few lumps.
3. If need be, you can use a whisk to get the lumps out.
4. Fill the liners till they are ⅔ full and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the centre comes out clean.
5. Let them cool for a few minutes in the pans, then remove them and place on cooling racks to cool off completely.
6. To make the icing, beat margarine for about 30 seconds.
7. Continue beating, adding ½ cup icing sugar at a time and beat on low speed till smooth.
8. Add the vanilla and soy milk, beat again.

SERVING
9. Ice when the cupcakes are completely cool and serve them over tea or coffee.
