Ingredients

Cupcakes

  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 110g margarine
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 300ml Guinness
  • 100ml OGGS Aquafaba
  • 220g caster sugar
  • 160g plain flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 1tsp instant coffee

Icing

  • 300g Vegan cream cheese
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 1tsp dairy free milkl

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (160 if using a fan oven)/ gas mark 4
  2. In a microwave or over a bain-marie, melt the butter and chocolate until it’s completely smooth. Leave to cool and add the Guinness, coffee and vanilla essence. It might look a little separated at this point but panic not…it will come together once all the ingredients have been added.
  3. Using an electric whisk, whisk the OGGS Aquafaba for two minutes ‘til it reaches soft peaks. Combine the sugar and continue whisking on a high speed until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  4. Combine all the remaining dry ingredients and fold in until its completely smooth.
  5. Fold in the chocolate mixture with a spatula or metal spoon.
  6. Transfer into cupcake cases.
  7. Pop into the oven for 25 minutes until the cakes have risen and are firm to touch.
  8. Whilst your cake is in the oven, whip up your icing by combining all the ingredients in a clean bowl, and beating with an electric whisk until it’s well combined.
  9. Pipe on top with a piping bag and a 5mm nozzle. Finish with a little grating of any extra chocolate you have left over!

Top Tips

  • Wait until your cake has cooled down fully before you start icing it… otherwise it will melt off!
