Vegan Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Chocolate Glaze

Posted 2016-09-28 by Kate Matefollow
This recipe is great because when you ice or glaze the cakes, even if it's been a few hours since baking they aren't sticky on top like regular cupcakes and this makes spreading the glaze on so much easier.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cupcake

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 12 servings

For the Cakes
1/2 cup peanut butter plus 1 tablespoon
1 1/4 cups self raising flour
3/4 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup rice bran oil
1 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

For the Glaze
2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tablespoons of olive oil spread or margarine
2 tablespoons of almond milk or soy milk
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of raw sugar

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees or 160 degrees fan forced.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the oil, apple cider vinegar raw castor sugar, vanilla and warm water.
  • In a small bowl add the peanut butter and heat in the microwave for about thirty seconds so it melts. This is so it will mix easy into the cupcake batter.
  • Next add the peanut butter to the large mixing bowl and sift in the flour.
  • With an electric mixer, mix on high speed for 1 -2 minutes.
  • When mixture is combined line a 12 hole muffin tin with cupcake papers and fill each one about 3/4 way to the top.

  • Cupcake papers should be filled this high

  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

  • Cupcakes are ready

  • To make the glaze add the sugar, cacao, olive oil spread and milk to a small sauce pan on high heat and stir constantly until the sugar has dissolved and the butter has melted.
  • Turn the heat down to low and continue to stir for 2 minutes.
  • After 2 minutes take the glaze off the stove and continue to stir constantly for 5 minutes.

  • Glaze looks like this when ready

  • Allow the glaze to cool down and spread on to the cakes when they have cooled.

  • Tips
  • The glaze thickens a little when it has been in the fridge for a few hours, so if you prefer it to be thick like regular icing you can put it in the fridge first and spread it on just before serving.
