I love recipes that are single serving and small servings because they are just so practical if you live alone or are just making a meal/treat for one.

Chocolate Coffee Cupcakes for Two 

Adapted from Taste of Home and Spark Recipes

Makes 2 large cupcakes or 3 medium cupcakes

Cupcakes:

  • 1/4 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup vegenaise (vegan mayonnaise)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp coffee granules (optional)
  • 2 tbsp agave

Icing:

  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp agave
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • pinch of cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, mix the vegenaise, coffee and vanilla and stir until combined.

In another medium sized bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, coffee granules, cinnamon and baking soda and stir to combine.

Combine the vegenaise and coffee mixture into the flour mixture and stir until smooth and combined.

Next, add in the agave by the tablespoon, adding more or less than called for in the recipe depending on your sweetness preference. Stir until smooth and clump-free.

Pour the cupcake mixture into lined muffin tins and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cupcakes comes out clean.

When fully baked, remove from oven and allow to cool.

While the cupcakes are cooling, combine all the icing ingredients together in a small bowl and stir until fully combined.

Once cupcakes are cooled, slather on as much icing as you wish to each cupcake and enjoy!

I thought today was the perfect day to post a cupcake recipe because it is officially my one year blogiversary!
