125g dairy-free spread
100g dark eating chocolate
3/4 cup of soy milk
3/4 cup of caster sugar
1 1/2 cups of self-raising flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
Place 12 cupcake liners in a cupcake pan. Preheat oven to 180
Melt spread,chocolate, milk and sugar over a low heat, until smooth. Take off heat and, let mixture cool for 10 minutes. Whisk in flour and cocoa. Add eggs. It will be lumpy at first but keep whisking until smooth.
Fill each cupcake liner halfway and bake for around 25 minutes. Allow to cool and ice.
4 large egg whites
1 cup sugar
Juice and zest of one lemon
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
In a heatproof bowl of an electric mixer, place egg whites, sugar, vanilla and lemon. Set over a saucepan of simmering water. Whisk the mixture constantly until the egg whites are warm to the touch and the sugar is dissolved, 3 to 4 minutes.Transfer the bowl to electric mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment. Starting on low speed, gradually increasing to high, beat until the mixture is stiff and glossy peaks form (5 to 7 minutes).Use immediately, as the marshmallow frosting will continue to stiffen. Pipe onto cupcakes, and lightly toast with a blow torch.
