Vegan Fudge Brownie Cupcakes

Very easy recipe. Yummy vegan brownie cupcakes. Definitely tastes like fudge brownie, with the light and airy consistency, not dense like expected from the fudge brownie. Just sprinkled with powdered sugar is enough, although chocolate fudge frosting would be a nice complement.

  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup coffee
  • 3/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease 9 x 9 inch brownie pan. Or lined cupcake form with cupcake liners.
Mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, stir together brown sugar, coffee, soy milk and vegetable oil. Combine the wet and dry mixes and stir to mix well. Stir walnuts into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, bake 35 minutes. Or fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full. Bake cupcakes about 25 minutes. Insert toothpick to check if done. Cool before sprinkling powder sugar or frosting.

 Makes: 16 cupcakes, 160 calories each. Recipe from "Rebar: Modern Food Cookbook"

I love what you did with that sugar design on top. It makes your cupcakes look so cute. I have a sweet treat linky on my blog every week called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link your cupcakes up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com
