Recipe Ingredients for chocolate cupcakes

2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup light margarine
1/2 cup no calorie splenda
1/2 cup egg beater
1 cup light vanilla soymilk
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large egg white
1/2 cup no calorie splenda
2 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp light margarine
2 tbsp cocoa
6 tsp water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Recipe Directions for chocolate cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.

  2. To make cakes, sift together flour, baking powder, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat together 1/2 cup reduced-calorie margarine and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar until creamy; beat in egg substitute. In a small bowl, combine milk, vinegar, baking soda and 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

  4. Add half of flour mixture to margarine mixture; mix. Add milk mixture and then remaining flour mixture. Mix until smooth and creamy. Spoon mixture into prepared muffin pan, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in center of a cake comes out clean, about 25 to 30 minutes. Cool cakes in pan for 5 minutes. Transfer cakes to a wire rack to cool completely.

  5. Meanwhile, to make filling, combine egg whites, remaining 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of water, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and remaining 1/8 teaspoon of salt in a medium bowl and place bowl over boiling water (or use a double boiler). Using a hand-held mixer, beat egg whites until stiff and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.

  6. To make icing, combine remaining 2 tablespoons each of margarine and cocoa, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract in a small mixing bowl; beat until smooth and creamy. Sift powdered sugar over bowl and stir with a spatula, adding water by teaspoonfuls, until thick and spreadable.

  7. Slice cakes in half horizontally. Spread each botton half with 1 1/2 tablespoons of vanilla filling. Frost top halves with 1 to 1 1/4 tablespoons of icing and place on top of bottom halves. Yields 1 cake per serving.
