Ingredients (Yield: 10 cupcakes)
3/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of Toffuti sour cream
1 tablespoon red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups of flour
1/2 tablespoon cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Toffuti cream cheese (500 ml)
1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted (250 ml)
1/4 cup Coffee cream (125 ml)
Zest of 1/2 lemon
Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).
In a food processor, mix the eggs with the sugar, oil, toffuti, food coloring, vinegar and vanilla. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Blend until just incorporated.
Place cupcake papers into a muffin pan, divide the batter in the cupcake papers, pouring only halfway so batter doesn’t overflow, and bake, rotating half way through, for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove and let cool.
In a bowl, beat the cream cheese, icing sugar, coffee cream and lemon zests together until the mixture is smooth. Pipe the cream on the cupcakes.
