I was asked to make two batches of six vegan friendly / dairy free chocolate cupcakes. Six to have cupcake frosting and a further six were to be iced like, what we call at home, 'fairy cakes'.
These are suitable for vegans and, even though they are chocolate flavoured, totally dairy free!
I used my basic batter mix but exchanged dairy produce for an vegan egg alternative and sunflower margarine.
These vegan cupcakes differed to my first ever batch, these ones are my second ever attempt, I managed to make these rise far better than the last batch, as per feedback from the previous taste test and the cooked product was far more lighter. I'm still working on the volume of the eggs, I still didn't manage to add sufficient liquid to replace what would have been the volume of a dairy egg.
I think I'm on the way to cracking the egg thing though!
