The BEST Chocolate Cupcakes Ever



One of my favorite things the Little Guy likes to add to a lot of his sentences is "ever".  He is always eating the "biggest apple ever" or sliding down the "tallest slide ever".  For a while it was "eber" but I think he has finally mastered the V.

We had our last MOPS meeting this week and one of the talented girls brought cupcakes.  I have to admit I'm not a huge cake fan in general.  I hate a box mix and I generally find most cakes or cupcakes dry and tasteless.

Not anymore.

These were hands down the best cupcakes I've ever had.  And the fun part?  They are Vegan!! (I hear cheers from all of you egg allergy Mamas already!!)

I have to admit I did not make the cupcakes pictured.  My sweet friend gave me extra to take home and so I snapped up her recipe and a picture of these yummy chocolately goodness.

Make these today.  Trust me.

Vegan Chocolate Cake

1 cup sugar
11/4 cup flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup warm water

Mix and bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.  This recipe makes 13 cupcakes or 1 loaf pan of bread.

I'm going to try these this with applesauce or avocado in place of the vegetable oil and I'll update you on how they turn out!

In the meantime seriously you should go make these.  Now!!!

Hi Laura,
The applesauce works just as well as the vegetable oil. I've done it and no one could tell that I changed something in my recipe. I just recently found out about avocado and I'm curious to try it.
Thank you for linking up with us on the Thumping Thursdays Blog Hop.

Sincerely,
Karina

My favorite chocolate cupcakes also happen to be vegan, go figure. The recipe is really similar, but I tend to add hot coffee rather than water, just to boost the chocolate flavor. Your photos look wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

These look wonderful, Laura. I love the comment about the ever at the end of your sons sentences. It always cracks me up when our boys start using new "cool" words to try to express themselves too. :)

Our Simply Create Link party is going on right now. I would love to have you link up, as I'm sure my followers would love to see your vegan recipe too. Hope to see you soon!

Hello, Neat post. There's an issue with your site in internet explorer, would check this?

IE still is the marketplace chief and a good section of folks will miss your fantastic writing
because of this problem.
