These are rich and delicious chocolate cupcakes—what more do you need to know? The frosting is made with dates and gets surprisingly fudgy. You can top each cupcake with a berry to make them extra special.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate (non-dairy)
  • 1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ⅔ cup dry sweetener (such as sucanat, date sugar and maple sugar)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour, or spelt flour
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder, either Dutch-processed or regular unsweetened
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 batch Fudgy Chocolate Frosting

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with silicone liners or have ready a nonstick or silicone muffin pan.
  2. To melt the chocolate, use a double boiler or simply take a small sauce pan and fill half way with water. On top of that place a small sauté pan. Fill the sauté pan with chocolate and bring the water to a boil. Use a rubber spatula to mix the chocolate as it melts. Once melted, remove from heat and let cool for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside. (Alternatively, you can also melt the chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave.)
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the plant-based milk and vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes, until curdled. Stir in the dry sweetener, applesauce, vanilla, and melted chocolate.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the mixture to the wet ingredients, one half at a time, and beat until no large lumps remain.
  5. Scoop the batter into the prepared pan, filling each cup three-quarters full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and let the cupcakes cool for at least 20 minutes, then carefully run a knife around the edges of each cupcake to remove. The cupcakes should be completely cool before frosting with the Fudgy Chocolate Frosting
