Vegan Chocolate Orange (Jaffa) Cupcakes

A recipe I found floating around on the internet, based on Jaffa candy, which I vegan-ized. We like to serve these with a simple chocolate buttercream icing in which the milk is replaced with orange juice. They're also great with your traditional chocolate buttercream, too!

ingredients

directions

  • Blend cocoa powder and hot water.
  • Combine the sugar, butter substitute, flour, baking powder and applesauce in a bowl. Beat for 3 to 4 minutes until pale and creamy.
  • Put half the mixture into a second bowl. Fold the orange juice and rind into one bowl. Fold the cocoa-water into the other bowl.
  • Spoon the two mixtures evenly into lined or greased cupcake tins. Draw a knife through the mixture to create a marble effect.
  • Bake at 350°F for 20 or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.

    Made these, along with some other finger food items to serve a group I host! Also took your tip & used a buttercream icing (made with OJ) ~ A really nice combo of chocolate & orange! Thanks for the keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
