Katie is from New York, Brooklyn and she has a passion for sharing amazing food and her travel with everyone on her YouTube channel.
I visited her in New York, and we decided to collaborate! She showed me how to make these awesome chocolate vegan cupcakes that are trending right now in New York and I showed her how to make my grandmas HALVA.
- For the Cupcakes:
Preheat oven to 350°F (180 C) and lightly coat your muffin tray with coconut oil or butter.
Mix the almond milk and vinegar in a large mixing bowl, and let set for a few minutes to activate. Add the oil, coffee, vanilla extract, and applesauce and beat until foamy.
Add the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to a sifter and slowly sift over the wet ingredients while mixing with a hand-held or standing mixer. If you don’t have a sifter, simply mix dry ingredients in another bowl and add to the wet mixture while beating. Beat until no large lumps remain. It should be creamy and pourable. Taste and adjust sweetness as needed, adding more sugar if desired (I found it plenty sweet).
Divide batter evenly between your cupcake trays, it should make plenty around 12.
Bake 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting.
While cooling, prepare frosting by beating together all ingredients until light and fluffy, adding the powdered sugar in small amounts until you reach your desired consistency and sweetness. If it becomes too thick, add more almond milk. If it's too thin, add more cocoa powder or powdered sugar.
Once the cupcakes are cooled, frost generously with buttercream frosting.cAlternatively, omit the frosting and dust with cocoa powder.
Serve with a scoop of dairy-free ice cream, a drizzle of chocolate or caramel sauce, coconut whipped cream or a glass of almond milk!
