Vegan Snickers Cupcakes | Ft DeDietrich

Vegan + easy.

Quick & easy vegan 'Snickers' inspired cupcakes, with a delicious chocolate cake, a peanut butter core, whipped chocolate buttercream, topped with chocolate sauce and roasted peanuts.

I baked these cupcakes in my DeDietrich oven

I bakes chocolate sponge lovely, making them moist and fluffy- absolutely divine! 

It has a large touch screen, which is clear to read with loads of options- including:
-Defrost function
-Drying function
-12 cooking functions
-Soft close door
-DX1 display
-Rose gold turner

+ loads more!

Check out their range of ovens here. I personally highly recommend it!
I use my oven to bake everything you see on my Instagram & website! The amount of settings and technology it has is incredible and it bake's desserts to perfection. 

I used the Fan Oven setting to help me make these absolutely scrumptious chocolate cupcakes!
These cakes are light and fluffy, with a rich chocolate flavour, full of peanut deliciousness!
You're going to love them..I promise!

-1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
-60g of coconut oil (melted)

Ingredients for the buttercream
-120g of dairy-free butter

-1 teaspoon of dairy-free milk (if needed)

Extras

-Chocolate sauce
-Roasted peanuts
...

To make the cupcakes
Step 1- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees c.

Step 2- In a small bowl, combine the dairy-free milk with the apple cider vinegar and whisk until fully combined.
Set aside for 10 minutes to curdle. This creates a vegan 'buttermilk'.

Step 3- In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda.
Mix well to combine.

Step 4- Add the melted coconut oil to the 'buttermilk' and whisk to combine.

Step 5- Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until a smooth batter.

Step 6- On top of the cookie base, fill the cupcake cases 3/4 full with the batter.
Make sure to tap the tins on the worktop to remove any air bubbles.

Step 7- Pop the cakes into the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes.
You will know they are done when you put a knife or skewer in and it comes out clean and they are springy to the touch.

Step 8- Place the cupcakes on a cooling rack and allow to cool fully. 
Once cool, pop them into a sealed container to keep them fresh before frosting/decorating.

Fill the core (optional)
Step 1- Using an apple corer, core the middle of the cupcakes.

Step 2- Add peanut butter into a piping bag and pipe some into each cupcake.

To make the frosting
Step 1- Cream the butter in a bowl, on high speed until creamy. I use my stand mixer with the balloon whisk attachment.

Step 2- When your butter/margarine is creamy & light in colour, add in the icing sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla bean paste/extract.
Whizz together until fluffy & fully combined.
Add a splash of dairy-milk if the buttercream is too thick.

Step 3- Transfer the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with an open star tip nozzle.

Step 4- Pipe a swirl of buttercream onto each cupcake.

To decorate, I drizzled over some chocolate sauce and added on whole and crushed peanuts.

Serve these cupcakes fresh or store in a sealed container in or out of the fridge, the buttercream will firm up at room temperature. 

Best eaten within a few days.
