Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

We had a little "Leaving London" party at the weekend. A house-cooling if you will! We had a lot of fun, but best of all I tried a new cupcake recipe and it made the nicest cupcakes I've tried yet! So I thought I'd share the recipe.

10oz/275g self raising flour
2oz/50g Cocoa powder
1teaspoonful of bicarbonate of soda
8oz/225g caster sugar
8floz/250ml olive oil
5floz/150ml orange juice
5floz/150ml cold water

So simple!

Seive and mix the first four ingredients into a bowl.

Mix the last three ingredients together and pour into the dry ingredients. Mix up (preferably with an electric mixer) and put into cup cake cases.

Bake at 160 degrees C/325 degrees F/Gas Mark 3 for about 25 minutes.

Let them cool overnight before you put the frosting on. I just mixed 2oz/50g vegan margerine, 2oz/50g cocoa powder and 40z/100g of icing sugar together with a little water with an electric whisk until the consistency was right and then piped it on.

So yummy!!
