Vegan Baking Tip:
You can experiment with all sorts of baking recipes. If a recipe calls for yoghurt or milk, substitute it with a soya or rice yoghurt - the texture of the cake will be slightly heavier and more fudgy.

Vegan Low-Fat Citrus Chocolate Cupcakes

A very moist, decadent, low-fat cupcake. These cupcakes have a very mild citrus taste to them, so I would suggest adding some orange zest if you want to boost that tangy flavor.


Ingredients:

1 cup whole-wheat flour
½ cup plain flour
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
½ cup orange juice
⅓ cup water
3 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon orange extract (optional)
⅓ cup vegan chocolate chips*

*My preference is Sunspire Organic Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips available at most local grocery stores in the natural foods section. Or try the Enjoy Life brand, a mini semi-sweet chocolate chip available at most local organic markets.


12 servings.

Preheat oven at 375˚F (190˚C).


In a medium bowl sift together flours, sugar, cocoa and baking soda.

In a large bowl combine juice, water, oil, vinegar, vanilla, and orange extract (if desired).

Gradually add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients; stir until just moistened.

Fold in vegan chocolate chips.

Spray 12 medium muffin cups or use paper liners.

Fill the cups halfway with the mixture.

Bake for 13-16 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.

Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
