Ingredients

1
cup all-purpose flour
1/2
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon salt
2
egg whites
1
whole egg
1
cup sugar
1/4
cup canola or vegetable oil
1/2
cup light chocolate soymilk
2
teaspoons instant espresso coffee granules
1 1/2
teaspoons vanilla
Powdered sugar, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray, or line with paper baking cups.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In another medium bowl, beat egg whites, whole egg, sugar and oil with electric mixer on medium-high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until well mixed. Alternately add flour mixture and soymilk, beating on low speed after each addition, until well blended. Add coffee granules and vanilla; beat on low speed 30 seconds. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (about 3 tablespoons each).
  • 3 Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4 Just before serving, sift powdered sugar over tops of cupcakes.
Tips  

Soy foods, such as soy milk, may contain soy protein and isoflavones. These two components show promise in lowering blood cholesterol and reducing risk of heart disease.

For Raspberry-Chocolate Cupcakes, omit the vanilla and the espresso powder. Add 2 teaspoons raspberry extract with the soymilk. Serve with a few fresh raspberries.
