Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

Tracy Byrne

chocolate vegan cupcakes // pale yellow Here are some vegan cupcakes done right.  The cupcake is moist and tender, while the frosting is rich and creamy. To be honest, they taste slightly different than a regular cupcake, but not in a bad way.  It's sort of like gluten free baking; the taste is slightly different from the original, but only because you know what the original tastes like.  If you exclusively ate vegan, I doubt you would notice the difference.

I was nervous about presenting another vegan cupcake to friends, but these received great reviews from vegans and non-vegans alike!  I met my friend Michelle for brunch at a vegan friendly restaurant after making these cupcakes and brought her a few cupcakes.  She really enjoyed and shared a cupcake with the waiter.  Not only did the waiter rave about the cupcakes, he gave us free vegan cookies as a thank you.

At work the next day I passed out these cupcakes to redeem myself.  I've been redeemed.  My baking self esteem had taken a little hit, but I'm back, whether baking vegan or regular!
