I have to be honest, I am new to vegan baking, and I am never quite sure what to expect when I first make an attempt to “veganize” a baked good. This one was no different, I was using my luscious conventional dark chocolate cake recipe as the starting point, and I had the feeling this was going to be a futile attempt! I could not have been more wrong! Seriously, I could not believe it when these muffins came out of the oven! They rose nicely, then deflated some once they cooled down, but in doing so, created a rich, dense chocolaty texture that makes them absolutely luscious–I think you can tell from the picture! They might as well be birthday cupcakes – you could top them with a little drizzle of my homemade Chocolate “Fudge” Sauce, to dress them up more if you’d like, but really you don’t even need it–they are perfect just as is!
