Vegan Chocolate Chip Cupcakes...

I think I missed a week of this and I'm cheating this week because 1. they're cupcakes not biscuits, and 2. I didn't make these (mum did, because we needed to celebrate her getting a pay rise at work, and because when I try to make cakes they do turn out like biscuits!). But despite that, here's our recipe for vegan cupcakes...

4 oz flour
2 oz sugar
2 oz margarine
2 'eggs' (we use this egg replacement powder)
a couple of handfuls of chocolate chips (I cut some chunks off a vegan chocolate bar - because it's impossible to get soya free vegan choc chips and I'm allergic to soya, but at least the chocolate bar comes wrapped in paper and foil, not a plastic bag like most choccy chips - so all that chopping was worth it!)

Put all the ingredients in a bowl, mix them up, add water or liquid if it's too thick, add the chocolate chips (or anything else you want to put in), put into bun cases or a cake tin and bake for about 20-30 mins, we do them in the middle of our oven on max (which is the setting above gas mark 9!) because our oven is rubbish, so mid to high heat would probably be fine.


  1. Interesting!

    What happens if you eat soya? Skin itchy or ...?
    And does it happen with organic non-GMO soya too?

  2. Oh, and congratulations to your Mom!! :)

    Sorry for double-posts, I always keep getting more ideas after I hit 'send'! /sigh/
    I wish we could edit comments too! :)

  3. Hi Layla,
    I think I keep doing double posts all over the place on your blog too, so no worries - we really do need an edit comments option!

    Thanks for the congratulations to my mum - I'll pass them on!

    As for the soya, I get a rash really quickly, then a poorly tummy :( and when I used to eat it in larger amounts (and eggs and milk which I'm also allergic/intolerant to) I used to get headaches and migranes a lot - now I hardly have any :) Plus soya isn't great for the environment, so at least that cuts out one dilemma!


Thanks for visiting!
