Kahlua Cupcakes with Kahlua Chocolate Mousse Frosting

Ingredients

    Frosting
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate bar or chips
  • 5-6 ounces (1/2 package) silken tofu, drained
  • 2 tablespoons soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons Kahlua
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cupcakes
  • 3/4 cup soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons Kahlua
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

    Frosting
  1. Chop chocolate into small pieces if using a bar. Heat a small pan with an inch of water in the bottom until water simmers. Place a pan on top of it that completely covers the bottom pan. Place chocolate in the top pan and stir until just melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes.
  2. Crumble tofu into a blender. Add soy milk, Kahlua, syrup, and vanilla. Puree until smooth.
  3. When chocolate is cool, add it to the tofu puree. Blend until combined.
  4. Pour into a bowl or airtight container, cover, and refrigerate at least one hour.
  5. After chilling, I whipped the frosting in my stand mixer with the whisk attachment so it was fluffier.
  6. Cupcakes
  7. Preheat oven to 350F. Line muffin pan with 12 liners.
  8. Combine vinegar and soy milk and stir. Set aside for 5 minutes until curdled.
  9. Add sugar, oil, vanilla, and Kahlua to soy milk. Whisk until foamy.
  10. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add in two batches to wet ingredients. Stir until there are no large lumps.
  11. Pour batter into cupcake liners, filling 2/3 of the way. Bake 18-20 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake should come out clean.
  12. Turn out of pan and cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.
