Raspberry Cupcakes

These vegan Raspberry Cupcakes prove that if you are a vegan, or cooking for a vegan, the diet does not have to be boring.

The combination of coffee, chocolate and raspberry is a favorite of mine and I am sure these vegan cupcakes will soon become favorites of yours as well.

I think thee is enough flavor in the cupcakes that they don't need frosting. A light dusting of confectioners (icing) sugar before serving should be sufficient.

Don't be scared off making these because they require raspberry puree. All you need is to blend or put raspberries through a sieve to have raspberry puree within seconds.
