Johnny's Vegan Vampire Bite Cupcakes

Friday, May 20, 2011

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup non-dary milk (I prefer Vanilla Silk)
  • 1/2 cup oil (I prefer canola)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Blood... I mean Strawberry Sauce
  • 1 cup of mashed strawberries
  • 1/2 cup agave or sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8th teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of salt

Vanilla frosting
  • 1/2 cup of vegan margarine
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup non-dary milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the non-dair milk, oil, vanilla and vinegar. Combine the two bowls now and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Distribute batter into a lined cupcake baking pan, and bake for 15-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Put a toothpick in the center of the cupcakes to check if they're done. If it comes out clear, they're done.

Blood... I mean Strawberry SauceIn a small pot, cook the strawberries and agave or sugar on medium heat until the strawberries melt down a bit. Unlike most other fruit, strawberries won't completely become liquid. Remove the pot from the heat and mix in vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon and salt. Let cool in the refrigerator.
FrostingLet margarine come to room temperature, then blend it in a mixer for about 25 seconds. Now add in the vanilla extract. Alternate putting in the non-dairy milk and powdered sugar alternating as you blend all the ingredients. You may not need all the non-dairy milk.

When the cupcakes are cool cut holes in the center of them using an apple corer or small spoon. Fill an piping bag with the strawberry filling and fill each hole with it, save some filling in a bowl for a later step. Now frost each cupcake and take a tooth pick and press two holes in the center of the frosting and pull out some of the filling to create "bite marks". You may take some of the extra filling on the side with a tooth pick and run it down the frosting to create the illusion of blood coming out of the bite marks.
