A Halloween Treat - Vegan Devil’s Food Cupcakes

Devil’s Food Cupcakes (We made 3 dozen mini cupcakes with this recipe but it could also make 1 1/2 dozen regular sized ones)

2 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 2/3 Cups Sugar
3/4 Cup Margarine
2/3 Cup Baking Cocoa
1 1/4 Cup Brewed Coffee (room temperature)
1 1/4 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Tablespoon + 1 Teaspoon Applesauce
2 Teaspoons EnerG Egg Replacer

Heat oven to 350. Put your cupcake liners in your cupcake pan.

In a large bowl, blend all ingredients with an electric hand mixer for around 2-3 minutes. You want your batter to be light and airy. I find it helpful to tilt the bowl slightly to help the batter get more more fluffy.

Fill each cupcake liner 2/3 of the way and bake for 5-8 minutes for mini cupcakes and 8-10 minutes for regular sized cupcakes. You’ll know they are ready when you can remove a bamboo skewer or toothpick form the center cleanly.

Let them cool on a wire rack before decorating.

To make The Mummies  : We used White Buttercream Frosting & Green Cake Decorating Gel. Try to make sure your Gel is not made with Gelatin - many are. If you can’t find a Vegan version - you can always use Agave Nectar with green food coloring.

White Buttercream Frosting (for your mummies and various other cupcakery)

3 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/3 Cup Margarine (softened)
1 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoons Soy Milk
In a bowl, blend Powdered Sugar, Margarine, Vanilla and Soy Milk with an electric hand mixer until smooth and creamy. If it is a little thick blend in more Soy Milk or add more Powder Sugar if it is too thin.

To make Orange Frosting : Add 1 Drop of Orange Food Coloring to every Cup & 1/2 of White Frosting and blend with your electric mixer.

To make your Zombie Brains you’ll need :

Whole Walnuts
Red Sugar Crystals
Green Decorating Gel - Please remember to read your labels because a lot of them have Gelatin. If you can’t find any without Gelatin - just add green food coloring to Agave Nectar.
Some White Buttercream Frosting
Just put about 1 teaspoon of White Buttercream to secure the Walnuts. Then apply the Green Gel over the exposed White Frosting and sprinkle with Red Crystals.
