To make vegan chocolate cupcakes you will need,
- 3C flour

- 2t baking soda
- 2C white sugar (I like to use 1 1/2 C white sugar and 1/2 C brown sugar, but its up to you)
- 1t salt
- 10T vegetable oil
- 2T white vinegar
- 2t vanilla extract
- 2C cold water
First off preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Then, in a big mixing bowl, throw in the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, sugar and salt. Mix it all up with a large spoon. When it is well stirred make a well in the middle of the dry mixture and add the vegetable oil, vanilla extract, white vinegar and the cold water. If you have a mixer then fantastic, otherwise continue to mix with your spoon until the mixture has a smooth consistency Once you have this you are ready to break!
Take your cupcake pan and put the little paper cups in to it. it helps if you grease the paper cups before pouring in the batter. When you’re ready to pour, use a ladle and fill the cups about three quarters of the way and then pop them into the oven and bake about 25 to 30 minutes. Poke the middle cupcake with a toothpick to check that they are done. This should take between 20 and 30 minutes!.
After they’ve cooled decorate them with some Vegan Frosting and you are ready to go with some perfect Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes, ready for any occasion with this delicious vegan cupcake recipe!
