Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate- Chocolate Cupcakes
Adapted from Baking, From My Home To Yours

Makes 12 cupcakes

Preheat your oven to 350 and line your cupcake pan with muffin liners.

In a medium bowl, sift together:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat until light:
1/2 cup vegetable shortening

3/4 cup sugar

Beat until blended, or about 2 minutes.

1 egg, plus 1 egg yolk.

Beat one minute between the egg and egg yolk.

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add in half of the dry ingredients, and beat until just combined.

Combine in a bowl, and then add to the large bowl:
2 tablespoons lemon juice
enough soy milk to make 1/2 cup

Add the remainder of the dry ingredients, blending until just combined.

Fold in:
2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate (chocolate chips) melted and cooled.

Divide the batter evenly among 12 muffin cups and bake 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in a cupcake comes out clean.

We served these sprinkled with a little powdered sugar, but you could definitely come up with a tasty frosting if you like!
