chocolate cupcakes with chocolate mousse topping.





These were absolutely delicious if I don't say so myself, also got the seal of approval from omni partner and work colleagues.

Ingredients:
1 cup of soy milk
1 teaspoon of applecider vinegar
3/4 cup of raw sugar
1/3 cup of canola oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond/chocolate/vanilla/coconut extract
1 cup plain flour
1/3 cup of cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Method:

1 - preheat oven to 180C
2 - line muffin pain with cupcake liners (I also like to spray them with a little canola oil at this stage)
3- place soy milk and apple cider vinegar into a cup together and leave aside for 5-10 minutes to curdle
4 - place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix until well combined
5 - add all wet ingredients and mix until blended - try not to overmix, the more you mix, the tougher the cupcakes will be! (at the same time make sure everything is well combined.)
6 - fill cupcake liners 3/4 of the way full with batter
7 - bake cupcakes for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cupcake comes out clean.

gently remove from muffin pan and place on a cooling rack to completely cool before topping.

Mousse mixture:
1 tub of kingland soy cream cheese - left out of the fridge to soften
5 heaped tablespoons of nutellex or your choice of vegan unsalted margarine
1 1/2 cups of icing sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 heaped tablespoons of cocoa powder

beat on high with electric beater for 5 minutes or until smooth and fluffy - place in piping bag and swirl onto cooled cupcakes. Top with garnish if desired (strawberries pictured)

  1. Though the Liege waffle is supposed to be from Belgium, the Belgians don't really make waffles! The Liege waffle is a chewier, denser and sweeter version than most others. Chunks of pearl sugar are caramelized on the surface of the waffle.
