Vegan chocolate cupcake recipe

Vegan chcolate cupcakes

These are the best vegan cupcakes I’ve made so far, so I thought I’d share the recipe that I got off my colleague. The recipe is American, so the measurements are in cups, but since I can’t make head nor tail of this, I’ve translated them into weights and volumes as well.

You’ll need:

  • 225g/1.5 cups plain flour
  • 250g/1 cup caster sugar
  • 3tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • half a tsp salt
  • 250ml/1 cup of water
  • 80ml/ a third of a cup of sunflower oil
  • 1tsp white vinegar
  • 2 packets of vanilla sugar/1tsp vanilla essence
  • 3tbsp chopped nuts (optional, I used pistachios)

To make:

  1. Preheat the oven t 175C.
  2. Sift flour, sugar, cocoa, bicarb, vanilla sugar (if using) and salt into a bowl.
  3. Mix up water, oil, vinegar and vanilla essence (if using) up in a separate container.
  4. Make a dip in the dry ingredients and slowly mix in the water mix. Beat until smooth. This will be very runny, don’t worry! Mix in the nuts now if using.
  5. Pour into cupcake cases. This will make 8 muffins or 12 cupcakes.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes depending on cupcake size

That’s it! Happy weekend!

    Hey, Franca,
    thanks for the recipe, that’s all I need now:)
    But are you sure about the measurements conversions for water? 250 ml equals one cup, not half a cup. So which one is the correct quantity?

      Hhhhmm, I shall have to check what happened there when I get home! I made it according to the metric measures, so I’m thinking the cup measures must be wrong. But I will check and confirm!

        Yeah, cup measurement was wrong, now corrected! Sorry!
