lactose-intolerant Oreo cupcakes!

Otherwise known as vegan. But when I think vegan, I think of nasty, dry, vegan vanilla cupcakes. Partly because those are the only kind I've been able to make! Well. These babies are the opposite! a.k.a. insanely delicious. So moist and flavorful. And they don't have a tidbit of milk OR butter! So I kind of consider them to be healthy too ^.^ Their real name is moist chocolate cupcake but they taste like the cake for the outside of an oreos, so I renamed them to vegan Oreo Cupcakes! They're very easy to make, and lowly costly. Just throw everything in a bowl, mix, and bake. But my coca powder had lumps so I sifted the dry stuff. So anyways, I was too lazy to make a frosting, so I just sprinkled some w/ powdered sugar and frosted others with pillsbury vanilla frosting (my fav!)<-- kind of on the sweet side but so good.. Here's the recipe! :)

Oreo Cupcakes;makes 20 *i got 6 when i halved the recipe for 10*
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil i used canola because i didn't have vegetable
1 teaspoon vinegar

Mix all of the ingredients well with a mixer or wooden spoon. It should be brown and smooth, free of lumps.
Bake at 350 F for 25 minutes.

cupcakes: 5 (so moist, flavorful. I totally recommend!)

PS. OMGG!!! Guess what? I got a green apple artisian kitchenaid stand mixer!!! YAY!!!! Isn't it pulchritudinous (haha)? And I also bought an ice cream maker attachment, so look forward to some ice cream next week! :)
