The cutest little Christmas indulgence. This chocolate cupcake recipe is a must-try!

Ingredients:

Cupcakes:

  • 3/4 cup (95g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (100g) coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup (25g) cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbsp (30g) apple sauce
  • 3 Tbsp (45ml) vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) plant milk
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar


Buttercream Frosting:

Decorations:

  • 6 red skittles
  • dark chocolate antlers and eyes

Method:

  1. For the cupcakes, combine the wet ingredients in a bowl and combine. Sift the dry ingredients into another bowl and mix together. Add wet to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  2. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F and grease/line a muffin tin. Divide the batter equally among 6 muffin moulds, even out the top and place in the oven to bake for 20-22 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  3. For the frosting, add the butter into a bowl. Sift in the powdered sugar and pink pitaya powder while whisking the buttercream into frosting. Add the milk and keep on mixing until nice and fluffy. Then transfer to a piping bag and place in the fridge, while the muffins cool down.
  4. Leave the buttercream to cool down at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before applying.
  5. Add decorations and serve!
  6. Enjoy!
