Vegan Cherry Chocolate Cupcakes

I always wanted to find new ways to bake with a vegan recipe. I found this recipe in a random blog and tweaked it up a lot to make it more desirable. Even if this recipe if vegan, it is surprisingly moist and very tasty. Anyways, I have always wanted to try a recipe that was vegan but I could never find a vegan recipe that did not have any weird ingredients in it to make it work. Luckily, I was able to find this one for you guys and I hope you enjoy. Follow me on this blog for more blog updates! :)

Vegan Cherry Chocolate Cupcake

1 1/2 cups flour (cake flour works best)
3/4 cups sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup cocoa
2 tbsp. oil
1/4 cup cherry “all-fruit” preserves (reserve the remainder of the jar for the filling)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 ounces unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup water mixed with 1 tbsp. vinegar
12 fresh cherries
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line 12 liners in the cupcake pans.
  2. Mix the first 5 dry ingredients together. Then add the wet ones. Beat with a mixer for 1-2 minutes, until all indredients are thoroughly blended. Pour into the prepared pans and bake on the middle rack until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Allow the cakes to cool for 10 minutes; then invert onto wire racks and allow to completely cool. With a one teaspoon spoon, scoop out the cake in the center of each cupcake. Fill with cherry jam and frost with your favorite (vegan) chocolate frosting. Top with fresh cherries if desired.

Servings: 12 cupcakes
