"How can you even MAKE cupcakes without eggs, butter and milk??".
Simple. Let me share a recipe with you. I made these on the weekend for a vegan picnic I was hosting.
Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes.
216g plain flour
4g baking powder
7g bicarbonate of soda
185g dry rapadura sugar
15g vanilla bean paste
196g thawed frozen raspberries
317g soy milk
8 drops of raspberry essence
93g canola oil
*preheat the oven to 180C
* in a mixing bowl sift flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and cocoa, add sugar and mix well.
*in a separate bowl place raspberries, soy milk, vanilla and raspberry essence. Blend together using a stick blender.
*add oil to the soy milk mixture, stir through gently.
* slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry. stirring continuously to ensure there are no lumps. Go slow. I learned this the hard way...
*divide among 12 large patty pans. I use Robert Gordon ones because they are super cute.
Now I don't have a baking time as I just check to see when the cakes bounce back when touched with your finger. Also a lot of ovens vary temperature.
When cool I use the Vanilla (not) buttercream frosting recipe on my recipes page.
