With a luxurious combination of sweet and salty flavours, these delicious cupcakes are definitely worth trying out.
• 1 cup creamy peanut butter
• 1/2 cup vegan margarine
• 2 cups powdered sugar
• 1/2 tsp vanilla
• 3 tbsp soy milk
Whisk or blend together all ingredients until smooth and creamy, adding more or less soy milk to achieve the desired consistency. Perfect for a vegan cake or cupcakes for the kids.
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp distilled white or apple cider vinegar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt with a fork, making sure it is really blended together. Add the water, vanilla, oil, and vinegar, and again, mix together so that it’s really blended together. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides if necessary.
Place in oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on a rack completely (2 hours).
