Category: Chocolate, Cakes

 Ingredients List

  • Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 6 oz. Vegan Cream Cheese
  • 2 T. + 1 tsp. Peanut Butter
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1¼ C. Powdered Sugar
  • Cupcakes
  • 1½ C. Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • ¾ C. + 1 T. Sugar
  • ½ C. Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 C. Ice-Cold Water
  • ¼ C. Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 T. White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract


Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting
Place the cream cheese and peanut butter into a medium-sized mixing bowl, and cream together with a mixer.
Slowly add the powdered sugar to the bowl, about a â…“ C. at a time, until it is fully incorporated.
Place in the fridge to chill, then make cupcakes.

Prep one 12-count cupcake pan with liners.
In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and sea salt. In a medium bowl mix together apple sauce, vinegar, vanilla extract, and water.
Then, mix the wet ingredients into the dry slowly using a whisk, making sure to not leave any dry pockets or chunks.
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Pour batter into each liner until it is about ¾ full or a centimeter from the top of the liner.
Then bake for approximately 15-20 minutes (18 always works great for me), check with a toothpick to see when they are finished.
Wait for the cupcakes to cool down, placing them in the freezer for 15 minutes works wonders. Then frost them and sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top for decoration.
