30. Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

 

πŸπŸ‚ Day 30 is here with a special treat for you all and you will NOT believe they are vegan! My husband thought I had bought a cake mix and asked me if I used eggs or butter – pfft as if?! I am so excited to announce my vegan baking success and share it with you. These only take 30 minutes to prepare and bake and taste the bomb πŸ’£

What you will need:
– 100g self raising flour
– 100g light brown sugar
– 2 tbsp cocoa powder
– 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
– 130ml water
– 1 tsp orange extract
– Orange icing (you can make it or buy ready made if you don’t have time)
– candied orange to decorate

Preheat your oven to 180c fan/200c convection oven

Step 1
Sift all of the dry ingredients into a bowl. Melt the coconut oil and add The wet stuff to the dry ingredients. Fold together with a wooden spoon or in a mixer.

Step 2
Spoon your mixture into cupcake cases and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Allow the cakes to cool for 10 minutes before decorating.

Step 4
Roll out the icing and cut into circles before placing them on top of the cupcakes. Add some candied orange and they are ready 🍊

Nutritional Spotlight-
I can’t say that these are the healthiest foods you will ever eat, but what I can say is this; it’s far healthier to eat a cake with ingredients like coconut oil (seriously healthy) and cocoa powder than with butter or eggs. Chances are, you’re not going to clog your arteries quite so quickly with these cupcakes and you can relax knowing that you won’t be consuming any funky hormones/antibiotics/infections from animal products *ends rant here*

Happy creating!
