    Default Triple Chocolate Muffins

    My wee lady made some triple chocolate muffins from the Vegan Lunchbox, and I thought I would share them with you. They're a bit grainy, as was taken on iPhone.

    Here is my messy Miss Frosty (picture selected especially for Frank):



    And here is the end result:

    I like football. And potatoes.

    The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you're uncool.

    That would come in handy, wouldn't it! The recipe is in American Cup format, which is handy for you PxS; but not so much for me and my metric friends I've copied over from a pdf document, so sorry if the formatting is a bit

    The cupcakes:

    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup cocoa powder
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup packed golden brown sugar
    2 cups water
    1 cup canola oil

    1 tablespoon vanilla
    3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (optional)
    Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray twenty-four muffin cups with
    nonstick spray or line with paper cupcake liners and spray the liners
    with nonstick spray. Set aside.
    Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt into a large
    mixing bowl. Add the sugar and brown sugar, water, canola oil,
    and vanilla. Mix with a handheld beater or stand mixer until well
    combined and smooth.
    Divide the batter evenly into the twenty-four muffin cups (about

    1/4cup batter in each cup—the cupcakes will rise to fill the muffin
    cups). Sprinkle the top of each cupcake with some chocolate
    chips. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a cake tester or toothpick
    inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean.
    Remove from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes. Transfer
    the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting
    with Chocolate Vegan Buttercream (page 249).

    VARIATION: To make a cake instead of cupcakes, divide the batter
    between two 9-inch round cake pans that have been sprayed with
    nonstick spray. Sprinkle each layer with half the chocolate chips.
    Bake at 350F for 40 minutes, until a cake tester or toothpick inserted
    into the middle comes out clean. Let the cake cool for about
    10 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely. The
    frosting recipe makes the perfect amount to frost the cake.

    The Icing/Frosting:
    3 cups powdered sugar
    1/3 cup cocoa powder
    1/2 cup nonhydrogenated margarine
    3.5–4 tablespoons rice milk
    1.5teaspoons vanilla

    Sift together the powdered sugar and cocoa powder into a mediumsize
    mixing bowl. Add the margarine, rice milk, and vanilla and
    beat well using a handheld mixer until the frosting is smooth.

    thank you

    I actually typically use metric too, but cups will work

    These look lovely! Am I right in thinking canola oil is just rapeseed and therefore vegetable oil? Just wondering whether I could substitute sunflower oil?

    Yes, and yes, although rapeseed oil is a better choice in terms of omega 3 to 6 ratio, if that bothers you.
