Ingredients:1 cup non-dairy milk (I use soy) 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1/3 cup canola oil 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, chocolate extract, or more vanilla extract 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/3 cup good quality cocoa powder 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 350˚F or 180˚C. Line a muffin pan with cute cupcake liners.
2. Whisk together the soy milk and vinegar in a large bowl and leave to curdle for a few minutes.Add the sugar, oil and vanilla extract, and other extract if using, to the soy milk mixture and beat till foamy.
3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add in two batches to wet ingredients and beat till no large lumps remain.
4. Pour into liners, filling three-quarters of the way. Bake 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes to clean. Transfer to cooling rack and let cool completely.
