Vegan Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes

The idea of using Avocado in cakes was appealing as it would rule out using butter and eggs. Although the avocados have a pretty neutral flavour and they are beautifully buttery, I still was figuring how do I make these. Then one day I bought a small avocado and made these beautiful little cupcakes…….as my wife was craving to have a chocolate cake this gave me an idea to make a cupcake. Seriously, these chocolate cupcakes are super moist and wonderfully full of chocolate. 

This vegan chocolate cupcake is one of the easiest vegan sweets to make, and it’s always a crowd-pleaser with non-vegans, kids and adults alike. Feel free to frost these with the vanilla or strawberry or any flavour you like. Actually wanted to cupcake with runny inside, but went for a plain cupcake as this was my first with avocado.

Preparation time: 15 minutes | Cooking time: 30 minutes |

  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour (maida)

Method:

  1. Chop the avocado and add to a blender along with the oil, water, vanilla extract, white vinegar, and blitz this to a smooth paste.
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl, then gently mix both the dry and wet ingredients together until we don’t find traces of any dry mixture in the bowl.
  3. Tip the mixture into cupcakes molds with cupcake liners, put this into a preheated oven @ 180 Degrees C for about 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cupcake comes out with dry crumbs.
