Chocomint Cupcakes for Kitty

MoFo 2014It’s my son’s girlfriend Kitty’s birthday tomorrow and she is one of my best cupcake fans always saying nice things about them and sometimes having two! I made her chocolate mint ones and here’s the recipe…

  • 240ml soya milk
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • 150g sugar
  • 80ml rapeseed (canola) oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 110g plain flour
  • 40g cocoa
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 50g dark mint chocolate, roughly chopped 

Preheat the oven to 180°C and put 12 muffin cases into your cake tins. Whisk up the soya milk with the vinegar and leave for a few minutes to curdle. Add the sugar, oil, vanilla and peppermint extract then whisk up until foamy. Sift in the dry ingredients bit by bit keeping the mixture light and airy. Fold in the chocolate chunks then spoon into the liners so that they are three-quarters full and bake for 18-20 mins until a toothpick inserted comes out dry. Transfer to a cooling rack. Ice with frosting made from vegan marg and icing sugar and cocoa… I used half green half chocolate brown. There’s loads of videos on YouTube showing how to do this.

  1. Oh yum, choc mint anything works for me and these look delicious. I have to look up how to do the half green half brown as I’m usually very lazy when it comes to decorating!

    It’s quite easy, I would bother using two bags of icing as some of the videos suggest, I just put the two colours into the same bag trying to get them roughly evenly distributed lengthwise (if you see what I mean!).
