Chocolate Cupcakes with Ginger & Orange

These look like simple chocolate cupcakes, but they have their secrets. Mixing the batter, which contains baking soda and vinegar, brings back joyful memories of elementary school science project volcanoes. Your first bite reveals the flavors of orange and ginger, which complement the chocolate and add a bit of exotic personality. And they’re dairy- and egg-free, which makes them the perfect treat to share with vegan friends.
