240 ml oat milk or any other plant-based milk
3 tsp vinegar
95 ml coconut oil
70 g light brown sugar
The Protein Work Vegan Protein Extreme
110 g plain white flour
3 tsp baking powder
50 g cocoa powder
For the Icing
180 g vegan butter
300 g icing sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
6 tbsp cocoa powder
½ tsp almond milk unsweetened
Optional toppings: sprinkles, powdered sugar, cocoa nibs, rose petals
For Cupcakes Preheat the oven to 180°C / 356°F (fan oven) and line muffin tin with wrappers.
Combine almond milk and vinegar (to create what is called vegan sour milk). Stir and set aside.
In a separate bowl mix coconut oil and sugar.
Pour over your sour milk and stir.
In a separate bowl, sift all your dry ingredients. Mix well.
Add your wet mixture to your dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Don’t overmix.
Pour or spoon in your mixture until the cupcake mould is ¾ full.
Bake 20-25 minutes. Remove the cupcakes when a wooden pick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Let it cool completely.
For the Icing Whisk together all your icing ingredients using a metal or electric whisk. It’s very important that your icing is stiff and holds its shape.
Check if your icing is stiff enough. Run a fork, spoon or spatula through the icing. If it stays still and firm, your icing is ready. If not, add more icing sugar one tbsp at a time.
Grab your icing and spoon it into your icing bag to fill it.
Start at the outer side and create a spiraling circle on top of your cupcake. Move slowly but firmly.
