Okay, I’m going to come clean– TECHNICALLY, this is a two-serving recipe for cupcakes, but I don’t know anyone who eats just one cupcake and is like “Okay, I’m good for a week.” Nah. You have to have one for breakfast the next day, right? Especially when they’re as chocolatey and soft and delicious as these vegan single-serving chocolate cupcakes are!
When you’re a mama of a dairy-free or egg-free kiddo, you tend to find yourself having to make a LOT of cupcakes for class events, birthday parties, etc. so your little man or girl doesn’t feel left out. I never need a full batch, but having one for me to eat while he does isn’t the worst thing in the world. I can make this recipe in a cereal bowl, pour it into two cupcake liners, bake, and be good to go for whatever event we’re off to.
You’d never know it’s a quick, single-serving recipe, though, much less that it’s dairy-free. They might be better than traditional allergen-filled recipes (shh… don’t tell anyone!). No one has ever been able to tell I substituted for the dairy AND it’s egg-free, which means it’s safe for those with egg allergies, too (or just someone who wants to lick the bowl).
Not a chocolate fan? Check out my vanilla version of the single (but really double) serving cupcake! I’d say it’s just as good, but is there such a thing as vanilla being as good as chocolate?
