Cooking With Drac Episode 4: Chocolate Cupcakes & Buttercream Frosting (Vegan Recipe)

- in Cakes


Original Non-Vegan Recipe:

Ingredients for Cupcakes:
1 & 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons vegan butter, softened
1 & 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs (using vegan egg substitute)
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup non-dairy milk

Ingredients for Buttercream frosting (I used a 1M Wilton Icing tip):
1/2 cup vegan butter, softened
4 & 1/2 cups vegan friendly powdered sugar
1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Non dairy milk (add a little at a time till consistency desired is achieved)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners
Set out butter to soften and mix together the vegan egg substitute
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the vegan egg mix half at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla.
Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk; beat well.
Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Frost with your favorite frosting when cool.

    I’m glad you’re doing things that is out of the make-up/beauty element from your channel. I enjoy watching you cook/name some of your favorite food/desserts. instead of doing voice overs it would be cool to watch you cook while you’re conversation. it makes it feel like we’re actually there hanging out and chatting with you. Not saying you should do it. Just a thought 😅

    1. Well most of the time, I don’t talk in my videos because if I don’t do voiceovers, you’ll hear everyone in my house being obnoxious (especially my brother who was blasting his music and clanging his workout equipment every 5 seconds while I was making these). If I lived alone it might be something I’d do but I live with 4 other people so for now, voiceovers are a must

    you’re a professional

  3. These look awesome! Despite not being vegan, I actually think vegan recipes in baking taste better than conventional recipes. Almond milk is delicious, and you don’t get food that tastes too eggy. One note about the buttercream, it’s good to add the sugar gradually, and sift it into your butter. This will give it a smoother, less gritty texture.

    That little character in the thumbnail is absolutely adorable!

  5. Watching you cook/bake is so therapeutic tbh
