Bowling Cupcakes

these cupcakes will improve your score

I made these cupcakes for my bowling team’s Big Lebowski party. While I don’t think the Dude ate peanut butter chocolate cupcakes in the movie, I definitely think he would abide. And, they go splendidly with a White Russian. As a side note, after eating these cupcakes, our team went on to win our first game the following week- go cupcake power!

No one can tell that these cupcakes are vegan… they are so moist, rich, and chocolately! I am not a big fan of piping forsting letters onto cupcakes and I despise those store bought letters/icings, so I got a little inventive. I pressed upside-down mini chocolate chips into the frosting to spell out our team’s name. Yes, this did take a while, but it was a fun and mind-soothing activity.

This recipe is based on the Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes from the book “Vegan Cupakes Take Over the World” by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. The recipe makes 12 cupcakes.

For the Cupcakes:

  • 1 cup soymilk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Frosting:

  • 1/3 cup vegan margarine, softened
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons soymilk
  • 150 mini chocolate chips

To Make the Cupcakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line muffin tin with paper liners.
  3. Whisk together the vinegar and soymilk in a small bowl, set aside.
  4. Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl, set aside.
  5. Whisk the sugar, oil and vanilla extract together in a large bowl.
  6. Whisk in the soymilk mixture.
  7. Whisk the dry mixture into the wet mixture in 3 batches, beating until smooth with each addition.
  8. Pour batter into cupcake liners, 2/3 full.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  10. Cool on a wire rack.

To Make the Frosting:

  1. Beat the margarine in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment until light and fluffy.
  2. Beat in the peanut butter, molasses, and vanilla until very smooth, about 3 minutes.
  3. Gradually beat in the sugar.
  4. While the mixer is on, slowly add as much soymilk as needed, until frosting is pale tan and fluffy.
  5. Spread or pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes.
  6. Press the mini chocolate chips into the frosted cupcakes, creating words or designs.

    I finally made these cupcakes and they were AWESOME. The cake part was moist and chocolately and the frosting was creamy with a really good peanutbutter flavor but not too sweet. I used chocolate sprinkles on mine instead of mini-chips. Yum, yum!!
