  • ⅓ cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • about 20 Oreo cookies, any flavour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour/plain flour/maida
  • ⅓ cup dutch-processed cocoa powder or use any you've available on hand
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • For Vegan Buttercream Frosting
  • 1 cup margarine [I use Table Land's dairy free margarine]
  • about 2.5 to 3 cups icing sugar or confectioner's sugar, sifted
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tbsp water
Instuctions
  1. For chocolate cupcakes:
  2. Prepare the muffin pan with liners and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven at 350 F/175 C.
  4. Chop Oreo cookies (reserve 6 cookies for topping) and then pulse into food processor for 2-3 times. Should be in coarse powder but not fine one.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk the soy milk and vinegar together and set aside for few minutes to curdle up.
  6. In another bowl, add the sugar, oil, and vanilla extract. Mix into milk+vinegar mixture and give it a stir.
  7. In separate wide bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  8. Mix into wet ingredients in 2 part. Beat till lump free. About 5 minutes. Add about 1 cup chopped oero cookies now and mix well. Pour into muffin liners up to ¾. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until the toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.
  10. For vegan buttercream frosting:
  11. Beat the margarine very well until fluffy. Add the sugar in 3-4 batch and beat for 1 minute each time adding the sugar. Also, add the water as needed and beat for 5 minutes more till it reaches to soft and smooth buttercream.
  12. Stir in ½ cup chopped Oreo cookies crumbs. Frost your cupcakes generously and top the cupcakes with half Oreo cookie.
