For the icing:

110 g/½ cup peanut butter

50 g/4 tbsp soft vegan margarine (leave out of the refrigerator to soften before use)

115 g/1 cup sifted icing sugar

⅔ tsp salt

1–2 tsp plant-based milk

Chopped peanuts and grated chocolate to sprinkle (optional, as needed)

Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F.

For the muffins, mix the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and chopped chocolate together in a bowl. Dissolve the cornflour completely in cold water, and add together with the oil and vinegar to the flour mixture. Mix well to obtain a smooth batter. If the batter is too dry, add a little more water.

Line 10–14 cavities of a muffin would with muffin cases and fill with the batter. Bake for 14–17 minutes. The muffin centres should still be moist after baking.

For the icing, mix the peanut butter and margarine until smooth. Add the icing sugar, salt and milk, and beat to a fluffy cream. If the icing is too runny, add more icing sugar; and if it’s too firm, add more milk.

Use a piping bag to decorate the muffins with the icing. Optionally, decorate with chopped peanuts and grated chocolate.

Mix all the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add 75 ml/⅓ cup of water, the vinegar and oil, and mix to a smooth batter. Transfer the batter to a mug of sufficient size. Bear in mind that the cake will roughly double in size in the microwave.

Put the mug in the microwave and cook for 2–3 minutes on a medium–high setting. The cooking time can vary depending on the microwave, so you’ll need to pay attention the first time. The bottom of the cake should be pleasantly moist, not hard.
