Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Avocado vegan cupcakes

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 cup mashed ripe avocado (about half an avocado)
1 cup water
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Avocado vegan cupcakes

  1. Cupcake Directions

  2. 1. Place rack in the upper third of the oven, and preheat oven to 350 F. Line a cupcake pan with foil or paper liners.

  3. 2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.

  4. 3. In a large bowl, whisk sugar, oil, avocado, water, vinegar, and vanilla. Add the flour mixture to the avocado mixture and fold with a spatula until well combined.

  5. 4. The batter will be so loose that you can pour it into a measuring cup to dispense into the cupcake molds. Fill each cupcake liner until it?s about two-thirds full. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcake comes out clean. Let cakes cool for 10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.

  6. Frosting Ingredients

  7. 3/4 cup Earth Balance butter (or any vegan butter in sticks), at room temperature

  8. 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

  9. 2 to 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

  10. 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  11. 1 to 2 Tbsp soy milk

  12. Frosting Directions

  13. 1. Place butter in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat the butter on medium speed until soft and pliable. Stop the mixer, scrape the sides of the bowl, and add the cocoa and sugar. Turn mixer on low to slowly incorporate. Add the vanilla and soy milk. Increase the mixer speed to medium or medium high and beat until frosting is soft and fluffy.

  14. 2. Spread onto cupcakes with a butter knife and decorate with sprinkles, if desired. Frosted cupcakes can last in fridge for up to 4 days.
