These vegan treats are perfect with a light spreading of fruit-sweetened raspberry jam instead of frosting.
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon powdered egg-replacer (such as Ener-G)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup plain unsweetened soymilk
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fruit-sweetened raspberry jam, plus more for spreading (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a 12-muffin pan with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, combine flours, cocoa powder, egg-replacer, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat oil with maple syrup on medium speed for 1 minute. Add vanilla and beat until well combined. On low speed, alternately beat in flour mixture and soymilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat in the apple cider vinegar.

Spoon a scoop of batter into each muffin cup. Spoon 1 teaspoon raspberry jam into the center of each cup. Spoon remaining batter evenly over raspberry jam. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until done when tested with a toothpick. Turn cupcakes out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

If desired, lightly spread some fruit sweetened raspberry jam over the tops of the cupcakes prior to serving.
