This is the recipe (taken from http://www.chow.com/recipes/10794-basic-vegan-chocolate-cupcake):
1 cup soy milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract, chocolate extract, or more vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder, Dutch-processed or regular
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners.
Whisk together the soy milk and vinegar in a large bowl, and set aside for a few minutes to curdle. Add the sugar, oil, vanilla extract, and other extract, if using, to the soy milk mixture and beat until foamy. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add in two batches to wet ingredients and beat until no large lumps remain (a few tiny lumps are OK).
Pour into liners, filling 3/4 of the way. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
1st pic is what they looked like 9 minutes through baking time, 2nd pic is what they looked like when the timer went at 18 minutes...
Does anyone have any tips on this recipe, or a vegan (or just eggless) chocolate cake recipe that they have tried and tested, and preferably in weights, not volume measurements? I'm guessing I don't know how to fill 1/3 cup with oil, or something... Thanks so much.
