Mrs Dohpaz Recipe

Original Recipe: Vegan Single-Serving Cupcake (found through Sweet Tater Blog)  (Both have excellent suggestions for toppings but I didn’t have enough ingredients in either.)

Tonight was one of those nights where I just had to have something sweet.  I could have made my go-to smoothie but our blender has been acting up. (It’s time for a new one) I had seen this recipe earlier today and decided to give it a go. After all the recipe only makes 1 (though I made 2 because I probably would be a single lady if I only made one and didn’t share with my husband) so I figured that if it wasn’t great, at least I didn’t waste a ton of ingredients.

First impressions were it made the kitchen smell AWESOME.  I have only had a few vegan desserts that I’ve tried and they’ve all turned out pretty dang good. (Hint: I need to do this more.) Waiting for the dang things to cool down a bit is practically torture.

As I said, I didn’t have enough of the ingredients to make either of the toppings suggested so I added chocolate chips. Which as you can see ended up congregating in the middle and making my cupcake like a vegan chocolate volcano cupcake.  And I gotta say… REALLY great.

Really. Yum. I don’t know if I have more words to express.

It was the excellent impulse baking project tonight! It literally took me all of 20 minutes to make.
