Vegan chocolate cupcakes and buttercream frosting

Hi again,

I’ve had a hankering for cake lately and so today, on this rainy Sunday I decided to bake my first batch of vegan cupcakes. I followed this recipe for the cupcakes and this recipe for the frosting. All the ingredients I used came from Sainsbury’s apart from the apple cider vinegar which I bought from Holland & Barrett. This recipe was fairly cheap to make and I had a lot of ingredients left over for future recipes. All things considered I think they came out okay for my first attempt, they didn’t rise as high as I would have liked, but the buttercream was amazing (shame I didn’t have a piping bag to make it look pretty!)

I didn’t apply the buttercream to all the cupcakes as I wanted to experiment a little, I put some coconut Choc Shot onto one, and peanut butter and maple syrup onto another. I think i’d like to add peanut butter to buttercream frosting next time, it was super yummy!

Well, my belly is full now, hope your weekend has been full of fun,

Sophie
