Coconut Chocolate Cupcakes/Cake
This post was from the friday cupcake party...
One of my dear friends and past flatmates was not only dairy-free but soy also. Therefore this made it very difficult when going out to cafes and restaurants, as soy is often used as a replacement for diary (i.e. soy milk instead of normal milk).
When my current flatmates and I decided to put on a little party at the end of the year I we thought a little about what we could bake that would include everyone.
One of the items we choose were various types of cupcakes, and to make the cheating chocolate cake recipe I often make.
Kath (my dear friend) is dairy-free so we decided to replace the buttermilk with coconut milk. I tried it out as a cake and Heather LOVE LOVE LOVED it. However you will see here it was made in cupcake form (note the icing has salad oil instead of butter substituted in it).
1 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
1/2 Cup Oil
1/2 Cup Water
was substituted for the Quickest Easiest One Bowl and Spoon Chocolate Cake's buttermilk/oil and water
