Chocolate cupcakes take over the world

My favorite chocolate cupcake is an intensely chocolaty one with a soft and fluffy texture which isn’t overly sweet. Extra sweetness comes from the frosting! Perfect. Finally I found this recipe and adjusted it a bit from: Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. Just to be on the safe side, I added non-metric measurements in the direction steps, and metric ones in the ingredients which you will see if you have metric-view active!

Ingredients :

– 240 grams Soy milk – 5 grams Apple cider vinegar – 170 grams Flour – 40 grams Cocoa powder – 5 grams Baking soda – 3 grams Baking powder – 2 grams Salt – 140 grams Sugar – 70 grams Vegetable oil – 8 grams Vanilla extract – 3 grams Amaretto or almond extract

Method :

1.

Mix cup of milk and teaspoon of vinegar in main mixing bowl. Set aside and let curdle.

2.

In seperate bowl sift together cup of flour, 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 3/4 tsp bk soda, 1/2 tsp bk powder, 1/4 tsp salt. If you should be using the thermomix kitchen machine like me, you can use whole grain flour which breaks up nicely when mixing at speed 10 with the other dry ingredients

3.

Add into main mixing bowl: 3/4 c sugar, 1/3 c oil, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp amaretto

4.

Beat liquids until foamy, e.g. with kitchen aid for 3 min at speed 4

5.

In 2 steps add flour mixture to liquid base and beat after each addition each time at max speed 2. All together for about 1 minute. Lumpy dough is just right

6.

Fill into mini cupcake form. I got 34 out of this batch

7.

Place into 175°C oven. Mini cupcakes 13min; medium sized 15min; large ones 18 min. Toothpick should come out clean and top should be ‘spongy’ under light pressure

8.

Out of oven and place on rack to cool for 5 minutes. Then turn over and let them plop out on their own. Place on rack for an hour or until completely cooled down. Now you can frost them with the frosting of your choice!
