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.
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!!!
