Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes
This evening, after cooking an amazing peanut sauce stir-fry dinner with Paul, I noticed that we really didn't have any sweets in the house. So, I grabbed my Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World cookbook and baked up these delicious cupcakes. They are chocolate dairy-free cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting (also dairy-free). Let me tell you, like all of the other cupcakes I have baked from that particular cookbook, they are heavenly! Just the right amount of chocolate-y taste that pairs wonderfully with the vanilla frosting.
These two cupcakes were quickly devoured by Paul and myself, and you can see my Rilakkuma mug full of coffee in the background. A super yummy dessert that really didn't take all that long to make!
For the recipes, I strongly advise that you pick up a copy of the Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World book...but if you're interested in trying this recipe out before buying the book, the recipe is posted up at Chow.com. Here are direct links to the cupcake recipe and the frosting recipe. Enjoy!
