I was a couple of glasses of wine in so I decided just to get crazy and bake these puppies with no recipe and no measurements. Sometimes the best baked goods are completed just by feel.
I had no idea how these would turn out but the gist of the recipe includes:
About double the cocoa powder you would normally put in a fluffy chocolate cupcake.
A soymilk/flaxseed/vinegar egg (see prior cupcake recipes for the breakdown!)
No oil or butter (I know...weird...but it made them super dense and brownie-e for some reason)
Basically, I made the batter super chocolately and super thick and scooped it with a giant ice cream scoop into the cupcake liners.
Topped em' off with some fluffy vanilla vegan buttercream and chowed down.
I don't know how, but these turned out beautifully!
That's what happens when you drink wine and bake! Next time I will have to try putting some of the wine IN the cupcakes ;) New recipe idea! And I promise to record that one so you can try it at home!
Live long and prosper! And use that happy-wine place to inspire your baking!
