Super Moist Infused Chocolate Cupcakes [Gluten-Free]:

Ingredients :

Cake

  • 3/4 cup gluten-free (all purpose) flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup – 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp infused butter or coconut oil*
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract (alcohol-free)
  • 1/2 cup almond or soy milk

Frosting

  • 3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp vegan butter
  • 5 Tbsp soy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  2. Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt together in a large bowl until well-combined. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, cane sugar, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla together until completely emulsified. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Add half of the almond milk; whisk for a few seconds, then repeat with the remaining almond milk. Stir until *just* combined. The batter will be thin and you do not want to overmix.
  4. Using a spoon, pour the batter into the liners. Fill them only halfway, or else spilling will occur. Bake for 18-21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
  5. To make the frosting: Using a hand mixer, whisk butter until creamy. Add remaining ingredients (slowly) until the desired consistency is obtained.
  6. Enjoy!
