Ummmm…  SO good!

Vegan. Simple. Delicious.

For the cupcakes…

  • 1.5c of organic unbleached flour
  • 1c of coconut sugar
  • 1/4c of ‘Camino’ dark cocoa powder
  • 1tsp of baking soda and baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1tbsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4c of light olive oil
  • 1c of stout

Mix all of the ingredients together and fill the baking cups three quarters full.

Bake for twentyish minutes in a moderate (350) oven.

Remove and cool completely before icing.

For the vegan icing…

  • 1/4c of ‘Earth Balance’
  • 2c of ‘Wholesome Sweeteners’ organic icing sugar
  • 1/4c of ‘Camino’ dark cocoa powder
  • 3tbsp of ‘SO Delicious’ coconut milk

The icing measurements are approximate…

Start by mixing the Earth Balance mix with a hand mixer or your kitchen aid. Slowly add in the icing sugar and cocoa powder… then drizzle in the coconut milk.  Adjust as needed.

The greatest thing about icing is that you can not mess it up!  🙂

If it’s too runny, add in more icing sugar… if it’s too thick, add in more coconut milk.

Play around and make it work for YOU!  🙂

Hopefully this won’t be our only St. Patrick’s Day inspired recipe, but at least it’s a tasty one!
