30. Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

 

๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚ 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 ๐Ÿ’ฃ

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 ๐ŸŠ

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

Happy creating!
