Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe with a tasty Chocolate Peanut Butter Filling much like Nutella, and an easy chocolate frosting. These are moist and delicious. I’m in cupcake heaven!
Have you guys heard of wacky cake? Well this vegan cupcake recipe is a play on a cake supposedly invented during the Great Depression that was made without eggs, butter, and milk.
I'm sure their intention wasn't to make a vegan cake, there was just a shortage of eggs and dairy at the time and if you did find the ingredients they were apparently to pricy.
Well who ever invented the recipe is a genius. It's downright delicious and so easy!
I got the recipe from my sister in law Dot, years ago (thx Dot❤️) and I've made it for my family here and there, throughout the years, usually in cake form.
Well this is my version of the Wacky Vegan Cake in cupcake form. I decided to fancy it up and add a gooey addictive chocolate peanut butter filling- why not right!!
And of course you need icing. I kept that part simple with an easy chocolate frosting.
Let’s start by making the chocolate peanut butter filling:
Add the cocoa, peanut butter, icing sugar and plant milk to a medium bowl and whisk until smooth, then set aside.
How to make the Vegan Chocolate Cupcake Batter:
Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre of the bowl and add the wet ingredients. Whisk until smooth.
To Layer the Batter and Filling for Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes:
Start with approximately 1 tablespoon of batter in each cupcake liner followed by the chocolate peanut butter filling and then top them off with the rest of the batter.
Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes at 350°
Let the cupcakes cool, completely and ice with the chocolate glaze. Yum! For the full Vegan Chocolate Cupcake recipe check out the recipe card below.
Warning these cupcakes are highly addictive and might contain a wee bit of sugar, lol!!!? If you're looking for a more healthy Vegan Dessert Recipe try my Chocolate Vegan Brownies or my Salted Caramel Vegan Chocolate Tart.
Tips and suggestions for cupcakes:
- Store the cupcakes covered at room temperature or in the fridge.
- Cupcakes should keep 3-5 days (if they last that long ☺️).
- Cupcakes freeze well without the icing.
